Question about Cars & Trucks
I don't understand runs strong, but struggles to drive? Do you mean it revs easily in nuetral or park but is sluggish accellerating in drive or in gear? Try putting air in all the tires. Also, make sure the brakes aren't seized. Jack up the car and see if the wheels spin freely to check if the brakes are engauged.
Hope it helps. Good luck.

That eliminates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Have you checked the fuel injector itself for an open winding or stuck valve plunger? There should not be a steady 12 volts to the injector--if good injector, it would be spraying fuel steadily into the throttle body. But at least the engine should try to run if poorly. Take the injector out, dry it off with air, and intermittently apply 12 volts to one terminal while grounding the other. You should hear a click from inside every time you touch 12 volts. If not, replace it. If it does, it may be plugged with debris. Try blowing through it in reverse with compressed air.

my 89 cutlass did the same thing....She would bog down ( when the service engine light came on)....Light would go off and she would run fine...Shop replaced fuel fiter and KNOCK SENSOR, runs great now, the service engine light stays off too. Ran a can of MG injector cleaner thru too.
