Lancer Problem

Hi here is something to think about, hope you can help.
I have a 94 two door lancer 1.5L with a carby.
It starts first time every time, blows no smoke and has
plenty of power.
If i park it nose down on a hill for any more than half
an hour the cylinders all fill up and the spark plugs
have to be removed to blow out the liquid.
They fill up enough to cause the engine not to be able to
turn over. Its pretty black liquid but quite thin(fuel i think).
After refiting the plugs and getting it to fire, it blows
plumes of white smoke for around 10km untill it returns to
its normal mild mannerd self. Latley is has developed a
ocasional preignition problem when you turn the key off.
The only modification i can see is the extractors that
someone has fitted.

Odd Noise in Toyota

Hi All :)

I was hoping I could pick your brains about a problem i'm having with my car. I don't have a mechanical bone in my body but i'll try to describe my problem best I can.

I drive a 2005 Toyota hatch. Recently it has been making the strangest "WHU WHU WHU WHU" grinding noise when I brake and sometimes when I turn left. The noise only happens on the left front side of the car. It also seems to only happen when the car is warm. The noise is at its worst when i come to a rapid stop - not an emergency stop - but when I slow down too quickly.
Passengers in the front seat have mentioned that they feel a slight vibration beneath their feet every time the noise happens. It also seems to get louder and more grindy the longer the cars has been running. I recently took it to a mechanic who told me there was nothing wrong and changed the brake pads. The noise disappeared for about 6 weeks and it’s back again. Any ideas as to what might be causing the noise?

Thank you
