Fighting for gas or air?

When starting the car, it tries to stall when pressing the gas. it sputters while it's running and sometimes cuts off. while driving, i can floor it and it just creeps and won't go past 50 mph. I was told to change the oxygen sensor, or cut off the catalina converter. I truly don't know what to do with my 1990 volvo 240 dl. Plese help

It sounds like a dirty fuel filter or bad spark plug wires.

Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.

Check the mass air flow sensor (clean both heated wires with carb cleaner and Q-tip). Remember...cleaning does not always work...sometimes they are actually bad. Also check map sensor. Check for vacuum leaks at all hoses and fittings. If engine rpm drops sufficiently, engine vacuum will drop which may have caused a/c malfunction (controls work with vacuum signal) so I wouldn't worry about that 'till the run problem is dealt with.
