Question about 1987 Plymouth Horizon
I just bought a Plymoth Horizon for $250.00 and it will start ok but wants to stall out soon after. When I drive it it will only go faster if I keep pumping the gas petal, the faster I pump it the faster the car goes. If I put continuous pressure on the gas petal it just bogs down and will decelerate. Because of the age I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the catalytic converter being plugged. It has a holley carb on it which I'm sure isn't original and all the emissions hoses have been removed or plugged. It's really a mess but for $250.00 I figured it's worth that if it runs. I'm just wondering where I should start with this thing and why I have to pump the gas petal continuously to make it go?
Sounds like its starving for fuel, bad gas in the tank, clogged fuel filter. that's where i would start. good luck
