Sounds like your choke is sticking. Lube and adjust, if need directions, try to get name of Carburetor (stamped) and actual engine size, maybe sticker on rad support or underside of hood?

No power on acceleration,wont go over 15 to 20 mph


Is engine smooth or rough? What tests have you run? Is fuel pressure correct? Did this happen suddenly or over time get worse? Clogged cat converter or muffler? Bad TPS, MAF, EGR?

Any smoke from tail pipe? Any check engine lamp on? If so, have codes read for clues.

Black smoke from tailpipe, loss of power, anyone know?


What year, make and model car is this? Most likely, black smoke is
usually a carburator problem. If it's fuel injected, black smoke can be caused by 1) leaking or faulty fuel injecters, 2) faulty choke, 3)dirty air
filter or 4) faulty distributor cap and/or rotor. Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 touring coupe with 50K miles and the transmission seems to have a problem. The upper gears are not working and when I get around 50 mph the engine line comes on and the rpm's go crazy


If your caddy has the original trans,although it only has 50k on it,it is 15 years old

It will most likely need to be rebuilt
I used to own a trans shop years ago.
If you got 100,000 straight through in 5 years, you did good.
I did a lot of fairly new caddy trans, for a couple dealerships.

Truck Not Starting


Sounds like you have to much gas going thru the throttle body. When you put your foot on the gas it opens the airway and lets air and no gas. The black smoke is unburned gas. Replace the throttle body and you should be good to go. It could be the fuel sensor also, telling the pump the wrong info.

Check engine light flashes spitts and sputters has low power wont get over 45 mph


Engine is misfiring, common causes are spark plugs and spark plug wires, could also be a coil, but plugs and wires are the least expensive place to start.

Speedometer Conversion


Multiply anything you see on the speedo by 6, and drop the 0

40km = 24mph
50km = 30mph
60km = 36 mph
70km = 42mph
80km = 48mph
yada...yada... 100km - 60
EX and cheap!
