A strange problem we noticed recently: With the headlights on and the revs up, the accessory belt came off. That V belt was also being ate up, as evidenced by powdered rubber in the engine bay. So we installed a new alternator.

While there, we also poured some Royal Purple Max-Clean in the gas tank. We put in new injectors and a new fuel pump, and also spent a good amount of time cleaning out the gas tankā€”but we didn't completely remove it and flush it out. The varnish goo that came out of it after the fuel sat for 6 years was not confidence-inspiring, so we figured we'd remove any remnants of that stuff with a high-powered fuel system cleaner. This, hopefully, will do the trick.
