Chilton or Haines publishes manuals for the 740. Of the two, the Haines offers more direct parts removal and replacement info. The Chilton has too much generic filler. Get either on Ebay for less than $20.

there is an anti siphon device in the tube
There is no need to empty the gas tank at all ( unless diesel has been added wrongly) because the computer in the ECM continually checks the tune up of the engine (60 times a second)
just add the new fuel and the computer will keep adjusting the tuning of the motor accordingly up to and past when all there is is new fuel in the tank
emissions are continually being monitored and the engine settings are continually being reset to stay with in the preset parameters of the program in the ECM

The brake switch is located in a threaded mount above the pedal itself. Optionally, it is screwed into a T piece with a vacuum valve for cruise control.

My wife had this problem twice - for two different reasons, as it turned out. The first time, the car was not really in park. The AAA mechanic shifted the car to neutral then through all the gears a couple times, then back to park and made sure it set firmly. The key turned fine after that. The second time it was because the key was worn. We used our backup ignition key (which is much less-frequently used and thus much less worn) to turn the ignition switch and release the wheel. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Define flooding.

  1. Black smoke out of the tail pipe?

If the fuel return line is plugged,it will flood.If the fuel pressure regulator has lost its vacuum signal ,it will flood.

If there is a large vacuum leak,the O2 will see a lean condition and cause the rich condition.gas mileage will suck,big time.

This "flooding" happens when the engine is cold? ONLY?
Be sure the air filter is not clogged and the PCV is not plugged up solid.
Also,there are a few tubes from the valve cover that vents oil vapors into the air filter housing.

During this flood mode,hold the pedal to the floor and shut the engine OFF-it should NOT keep running.(Leaky injectors)...

Do this when engine is hot and cold.

It is attached at the top of the brake pedal. Lay down backwards and look up towards the dashboard guts.
