check the coolant level, watch for steam in the exhaust or under the hood

#1: The fuel pump and filter are good advice, but it could be stale gas too. The car may have sat for awhile before the auction, and the dirt may have fouled up your fuel system. Get a tank of fresh gas, and some fuel system cleaner, then re-evaluate.
#2: Low coolant can make your car run cold, and a leaky head gasket can make your coolant run low. If you top it off, and it dissapears without a trace, it could be going out the tailpipe. Lets hope I'm wrong on this...
good luck, John

The combo off all the electronics running and low voltage may have something to do with the fuel problem. Maybe the pump isnt getting enough fuel
And for the carb icing up.. I had it happen this weekend at -50F
1/8th inch of ice in covering the side of the carb.
I guess thats what happens when your in 2 feet of powder doin 45 mph jumpin berms
Check the vac. actuator off the hot pipe that runs from the exhaust to the air intake.. if that doesnt open, you could have iced up
Did you check the linkage on the hot cold arm for the heater? you should be able to hear a difference in air flow from moving it from hot to cold.. if not, something in the linkage could be messed up..

I got a piece of heavy duty exhaust hose (used on salt water cooled Gas engines in fishing boats) Mine is like 2 1/4 inch.. its too big, but the bottom of the hose melted to the shield sealing it so I dont need a hose clamp on it. On the top it goes on the inlet of the air filter assembly thats on the passenger side facing the back of the car
What are you using to fix the exhaust leak?
