Hello from northwest illinois. This could get wordy, but I have a 90 lx 5.0 with a 5spd. Bought it knowing needed work and planned on 5k over time. Unfortunately its all cone one after another. Now I've developed the coolant leak. Or should I say its bad now. Think it is coming from water pump gasket or lower rad hose. Shut off other day and heard pressure release then saw dripping and coolant streaming down hose. Also coolant is collecting on top of my pump. Another issue I've always had is if I don't let run for few minutes when first start it runs poor bucking like wrong gear/ not getting right mixture. But also fwels like fuel backing up and hear slapping from rear. Does this after driving for bit randomly as well too. I've heard a lot of talk of iac... also bought new radiator cap and don't think its done since then. Convenient taxes are coming. Once again sorry future posts prob wont be this long

Welcome.
Iac. Sounds pretty reasonable place to start.there should be a procedure to check it in your Haynes or Chilton.be sure to check out the 79-95 gt section.
