I have a 1969 dodge dart custom. Slant 6 engine. I put the key in the
ignition, turn it and the car starts. I can rev the gas as long as I have
the key turned but when I let go of the key the car dies. I cant figure
out why the car will not stay running. When I got to the car tonight the
radiator was empty. So I filled it and tried to pump the water into the
car. The water level did not go down. As long as I keep the key turned I
can rev the gas over and over, but the second I let go of the key the car
dies. Everything is connected, liquid levels are fine. I have no idea what
the heck is wrong with the car. Please help! Is it sediment in the lines?
Is the radiator broken, or perhaps the generator? Or is it something to do
with the carborator? If it is any of these what do I do? Please help I am a
college student and dont have the money to get my car towed and repaired. I
have done all the maitenance myself, but I am stumped. If anyone has any
ideas please let me know.
