2001 Chevy Metro no power in drive, runs great in park or neutral
Replaced head gasket, water pump, timing belt, TSP sensor, MAP sensor. Runs great in park or neutral but when you put in drive it dosen't have enough power to drive over a garden hose. Vavles were checked at machine shop and are good. On the road it starts out really slow with gas pedal to the floor as it picks up speed it runs great. Transmission and rest of drive train seems to be just fine! Chevy mechanics are stumped, they had it for a week and couldn't figure it out - boy were they embarrassed! - HELP!!

my 98 Blazer I had to replace radiator water pump heatercore and hoses. Had head gasket go. Once that happens air and dexcool corrode cooling system. Do you smell antifreeze? Are you loosing antifreeze? Check oil see if its another color not clear or black but i think light brown. Have you flushed out system?
I'm willing to wager that you've either get a pinhole leak in your radiator (I doubt it) or you have a blown head gasket. When you're driving, do you see white smoke out of your tailpipe? If yes, the head gasket is likely blown.
