    240 240 sunroof help!!!

    Ok so I just tried to clean my sunroof drains by feeding some weed eater nylon wire into the drain hole. I fed quite a bit into it and when I tried to pull it out, only a few inches came out and then it stopped. It's stuck somehow inside and I don't know where the drain is outside of the car...

    Backstory: the car is an '82 244tic, bone stock as far as engine upgrades goes.

I recently purchased...

    Speedo has a mind of its own...

    So on my way to class the other day, I'm cruising along fine, speedo/odo working perfectly. I look down 10 minutes later and the speedo needle is bouncing between 0 and 40mph and I'm doing at least 55mph. Since then, it's gotten worse - bouncing between 0 and 20mph. Today it stopped working...
