After compression checking and pulling off the valve covers it was obvious there was no traumatic damage. Rebuilding the carb helped (because after we solved it we had a huge surge in horsepower) but didn't solve the problem. It was only after we had called a local machine shop and described the problem just like above where they had mentioned "are the gears ...

Hot-start problems are indicative of loss of pressure in the fuel line. This is usually caused by a leaky fuel injector. The reason why this happens only for hot starts is because the fuel is more likely to vaporize as temperature increases. In order to avoid vaporization problems the fuel lines are expected to be pressurized during a hot start. If there is ...

The same thing happened with me ( Ford Focus - bad starter? ) when trying to "turn the car over". The current drawn "killed" the car for about 2 minutes, where nothing electrical worked at all. Check that the battery terminals are clamped down correctly. You might need to remove the clamps and reseat them.

If you checked your oil level and discovered it was low, then topped it off correctly, you'll have caused your engine absolutely no damage. It does seem as though you have other issues with the oil leakage. You'll need to take this to a shop to get the oil leak itself sorted out. Depending on the amount of oil being lost through the leak, you can drive it ...

Whenever a car has starting issues, the first things I check are the battery, the alternator and the starter. You can check the battery easily with a voltmeter or take it to a shop and have them do a load test on the battery. You can also test the alternator with a multimeter, but I prefer using amperage meter. Once you verify those things are alright you ...
