Question about Plymouth Cars & Trucks
When your driving down the road the car blogs down step on the foot feet then runs good then blogs down again
You have a car with a 2 barrel carb and a very primitive computer. So the usual steps to diagnose the problem won't work.
It could be a long list of things, especially the carb itself.
The common cause of lack of power is lack of fuel, but it could also be spark timing, a vac leak, or other things.
A mechanic that understands carburetors will have to run down a list of possible causes to find it. And you may want a second opinion if they decide it is the carb, because that would be a $500 part plus labor.

Testimonial: "looking for something a little better than that for a suggestion, already changed out the carb thinking it was the gasket, also the hall effect pick up coil. checked reservoir for leaks even checked timing. So I have hit a wall, and I need somewhere else to look so I can get this thing fixed. Without taking it to a shop, this car is not worth spending a whole lot of money on. Can do the work myself just need someone to point me in the right direction."

The speedometer went out at 50,000 miles. The head gasket blew at 125,000 miles. I bought this car new when I started college, and it was the best front-wheel drive car I ever owned. The speedometer went at about 50,000 miles. I traced it to the printed circuit board, but Chrysler didn't carry the part, so I guessed my speed based on what gear I was in and my tachometer reading.

You may have pick up some debris on the road and it has wrapped around your front drive axle. That's honestly all I can think of as long as there are no other changes in the operation of the vehicle.
