Question about Cars & Trucks
I just recently purchased a 1984 VW Rabbit 1.7 engine fuel injected gas. I put new gas in, new battery and new spark plugs. On the highway it started losing power on inclines and would just go a few miles an hour. After changing the spark plugs it still doesn't sound right. What do you think is the problem. The car had been sitting for three years without running.
You need to check the accumulator and make sure you are getting the correct fuel line psi. Also if it sat a long time with old gas in it it could just be old gas accumulation and deposits. get a good fuel line and injector cleaner one that dosn't say STP and cost's more than $15. One that has to be done threw the fuel line or injector ram. You can try using seafoam, its seams to work pretty good in this type of situation just look it up on UTube.
