Guys I finally got her on the road for around a 6 mile ride, heres what I found with a couple questions....


Brakes:
The brakes worked good up until the end of the ride. By the time I got home the brake pedal was really hard to push, it felt like they do when then engine is off. All city driving allot of stops. Are there any tests to determine if I need to rebuild the booster? Any tips?


Acceleration:

When accelerating from a stop some times I accelerate no problem and other times there is a hesitation, I stalled a couple times. After I get going no problems. Could this be a failing fuel pump? Debri in fuel pump?



Torsion Level:

I noticed the torsion level goes in and out. Sometimes I can sit on the trunk to test the system and sometimes it comes on and others it doesn't.
When I got gas the rear end was
Low so I manualy lifted the rear end as high as I could and then pushed it back down and it just stayed there. After I got home it re leveled 5 mins after it was parked? What could cause this?


Thanks for the help guys!
