More info please. this symptom could be may things from fuel delivery, air measuring, vacuum leaks, faulty sensor input , tune up parts, clogged catalytic converter to tired motor. is there an engine light on? what codes? has it progressively gotten worse or was the car running fine then all of the sudden it wasn't? if there is no engine light on then start with checking fuel pressure.

Time for the dealer to take a look. You need special skill and special tools to diagnose this not to mention years of experience with electronic engine control systems.

95 camaro 3.4 sucking air from a/c vents & loss of power cant find vacume leak


Not sure what you mean by loss of power. If you mean lack of acceleration or bogging down, than a bad cat convertor can cause this problem because you are lossing vacuum during acceleration causing the vents to switch from floor to defrost. Hope this helps leave comment.

Runs good until you accelerate then it lacks power it dont miss just alarge power loss in every gear if you let off of the gas its power comes back its about to drive me crazy please help? dwb


I would suggest changing the fuel filter. The engine seems to be starving for fuel and if the filter is pulgged, the engine will bog down under load. Then the engine will run better when coasting because the fuel pressure will build up again.

Losing power when I accelorate.


Fuel filter is the main culprit when you lose power going uphill. Going level or downhill means that the engine doesn't have to work all that hard and doesn't demand much fuel, so a partially clogged filter can usually flow enough to allow the car to run smoothly. Going uphill requires signficantly more fuel, and if the filter is clogged up, it won't be able to flow enough fuel. This will bog the car down and cause you to lose speed. Change your fuel filter.
