Change your fuel filter on the front of the carb - if that dont work change the carb, summit racing sells new Q-jets for cheap

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.

Momentarily Sluggish Acceleration


Are you loosing power to the ecu when the car is shut down? most cars with an ECU that controls timing, fuel, or boost can be forced to relearn the car if the ECU looses power (called a "limp" mode). I'd look into this. Also are you getting any check engine lights? considering the description of the problem, this would help to diagnose. Try getting the car started and running normally, then turn the car off but do not kill the power to the car, just stop the motor from running...Fire the engine back up and try to give the car a good stomp on the gas and see if you get the same sluggish problems...my 2 cents... Good luck future auto DIY's
