My 89 lebaron runs but has no power when you put it gear

A new rotor and cap, air filter, fuel filter, oil change, timing belt and a head gasket were just replaced. The car starts and runs but has no power when you put it in gear.

    you were right, but now it runs but only in higher speeds. when i drive at slower speeds through town it sputters and doesn't run smooth.

    Thanks that helped but it still doesn't run smooth at lower speeds like going 25 mph. At normal speeds like 55 it runs great. A friend thinks it is a plugged converter.

    HOW DO YOU FIND OUT WITCH WAY IT IS OFF? I MEAN IF IT IS ADVANDED OR IF IT IS REVERSED?

    I had this problem. 2 different things were done, not sure which one worked. Fuel Injector was clogged - used injector cleaner until mechanic suggested mid grade fuel because this engine is considered high performance.

    Also, there are 2 oxygen sensors. One is easy to find, the other difficult. I have to remind my mechanic that there are 2! When he gets them both working and I use proper fuel, all is good.

Check compression in each cylinder., sounds as if it might be piston rings.oil thins as it warms so the drop in pressure seems to point to loss of compression .i take it it doesn't blow smoke out of exhaust?

I bought an 89 dodge spirit, and it wont keep the battery charged has had multiple new batteries put into it and it also stalls every time its put into gear what could be the problem


Most probably, the AIC stepper motor is bad, one way to kno, is when the engine slows at idle when you swithc on the air conditioner, and the Idle automatioc control does not correct the RPM dropping from the increased load. An engien that does not maintain correct and stable idle cannot maintain the battery charged, but it could have multiple issues.

What is needed for a tune up?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.

Make sure the coolant is full, then change the coolant sensor near the thermostat housing. This will put the car into advanced timing mode again. Do not over torque the sensor. 14ft.lbs or less as needed to stop seapage. Good luck!

1987 Volkswagen Jetta GL rough idling problem.


Hi!
So far you have done all but change the leads! This will help dramatically BUT if your head gasket is blown I'm afraid you'll have real difficulty in get it to run smooth as water/steam is possibly mixing with the fuel causing very poor ignition.
I did the same as you on a Golf as soon as the new leads were fitted Bingo a New Car, However there wasn't a head gasket issue.
Good Luck and A Happy New Year to you and your Family.

The difference is the 5 speed. He has a lower first gear ratio than you, and probably a different rear end too. You could change your gears, typically a 5 speed is always faster than an auto, typically

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work
