Hello, I'm brand new and just bought a 78 last week. It runs smooth and the air blows cold. I just went and looked the whole car over yesterday and tomorrow am installing new shocks, radiator (due to a slow leak), and water pump. That seems to be all that is really needed at the moment. The only problem that I am having is the rough idle. It jumps a bit here and there, then it tries to die on me like the alternator is going out or something, the battery light kind of flickers on and off. It also seems to lose a little bit of power sometimes when turning. The power steering pump was replaced the day I bought the car. And it turns good and smooth, just once in a while theres a split second power loss when I'm idling through a turn especially. As soon as you give it gas its on it and running strong. The car has been garaged for 4 years after the original owned that had it passed away. It also gives you a little bit of hell on cold starts here and there. Im going to replace the spark plugs and look over the wires tomorrow, so hopefully that will fix the problem. If not I'll be needing some suggestions on where to start! Thanks for any help...
