Question about 1984 Chevrolet Caprice

1 Answer

Fuel/ Acceleration I have a 1984 Chevrolet Caprice Classic. I was driving and I could not accelerate over 65. It runs good until the moment I get to 65 and it start to ****, etc. I am thinking that maybe it's something in the fuel assembly, maybe the fuel filter, pump, or the carburetor. I even thought about the catalytic converter being stopped up.

Yes, probably the inline fuel filter on the carb, they use a small paper type filter that clogs up after awhile with junk from the gas tank. also your car will probably hold back if you try to accelerate hard, such as trying enter a freeway.........

Fuel pressure low, new pump, regulator, and filter

Check the cold cranking amps of your battery by taking it to any battery shop. You can have a full charge on your battery but if the current is lacking your motor will not turn over. If the CCA are good, check your starter relay for intermittent operation by swapping it out with another relay with the same current rating.

Have 95 chev caprice classic, engine running rough, replaced spark plugs and wires, it is getting good fire but the problem with rough running is worse. does this car have a distributor cap and rotor...

Not sure what engine you have in your car? If you have the V8 then I think you should have a cap and rotor. If so change them. The V6 may just have a coil pack. Just follow your wire from the plug and the other end either goes to a cap or a coil pack. Did you replace your fuel filer? If not then do so and if that doesn't help I would perform a fuel pressure test to make sure the fuel pump is working at the proper pressure.

Hesitates when going 55mph

How does it perform acceleration wise up to 55 mph? If good, then I'd have exhaust checked for restriction as well, as in plugged catalytic converter.

The relay probably belong to a bad installed alarm system. You will need to an electricist check if they exist and uninstall it for complete and reinstall it (only with both manuals at hand, car and alarm) Try to use a scanner for the another problem to not be an adivine and let us know if this do not solvent problem
