Question about 1984 Cadillac Eldorado
Mostly on hot days, cannot pull a hill. Almost like it vapor locks, but it's fuel injected. The motor will die, but then start right back up. If you start slow, it will go to about 35mph, then die again.

you could see if you have a friend that could help you bye starting the car for you and you need to un hook the top of air box as if you were going to change the breather take a small coke bottle and pour about 1 cup of gas in your bottle hold your breather hose up and pour about 1/2 shot glass gas down the hose and see if that alows it to continue to run if it does you may have a bad or weak fuel pump but I will warn you to be careful when dealing with gasoline do not go to overboard use your best judgement

You just need to clean the throttle body. Take the air duct off and hold the throttle blades wide open (engine off). Spray the throttle bores beneath the blades with carb cleaner and scrub with an old tooth brush. clean the back side of the throttle plate also. The junk and gunk is plugging up the air flow past the blade at closed throttle and the idle speed control is running out of authority to open the blade. It just needs a thorough cleaning. Disconnect the negative battery terminal for 30 seconds when you are done to reset the idle learn offsets.
While you are in there and have the blades of the throttle body wide open....see those two tubes sticking up at you from the floor of the manifold?? Those are the EGR delivery tubes and they are NOT supposed to be full of carbon.... Rod them out with a piece of stiff coat hanger wire and carb spray to get them cleaned out.
