1990 Oldsmobile 88 Royale acceleration and brake problems.


You could have a weak fuel pump causing it not to accelerate to a higher speed. The brakes going to the floor indicates that there may still be air in your brake system, ora bad brake booster not creating the needed vacuum for high velocity braking. The other thing is if you have an EBCM (Electronic brake control module) it could have dirty connections or just be going bad. Hope this helps.

What can cause slow acceleration on a 90 honda accord ex


A whole list of things!!!!!! Start by checking the Vane Airflow Meter/Mass Airflow Sensor, then the Throttle Position Sensor. You need to find someone who is familiar with the Honda Diagnostic process to access your ECU and retrieve the codes for a more definitive diagnosis. It will save you a lot of headache, and money in the long run.
