Take by your auto parts store, ask them to read computer error codes if any. Otherwise, it sounds like a fuel system delivery system, many parts involved. Usually, a dealer will charge $100. for diagnosis, and credit that $100 to any needed repairs.

I have a pw50 it starts fine and runs fine but doesn't seem like it has any power it barely pulls itself when I run my nitro fuel from my rc car through it it does a lot better but still not very good...

Its probably getting too much or too little fuel or air. if the intake filter and passage are clean, then you might wanna get a kit to rebuild the carb. There's a little jet that allows a certain amount of fuel in and the arm that holds it can bend over time making lack accel during rev. when you pull it apart it looks kind of like a mini metal pencil generally with a rubber tip. you need to the kit to fix it, but sometimes old gasket will come apart.

Lack of power thunderbird sc 1990

This code doesn't cause any lack of power, the fact of the matter is that code 25 is most likely a symptom of the problem, the engine has excessive spark knock being sensed. Have the engine compression tested and have it checked for a misfire. Also have the fuel pressure tested, low fuel pressure can cause this lack of power as well/

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L. Just the other day it started acting up. In 1st gear it doesn't shift until about 3000rpms, or untill i let off the gas, and it also lacks power in 1st gear. Where I...

Those are known for transmission problems. I would change the fluid and filter in the transmission. Also I would put 2 quarts of Lucas Transmission Treatment in it and if its not too late that should make it last a little longer, I am sure it will eventually start slipping worse and then start slipping in all gears but with Lucas you might get another couple years out of it depending on how hard you are on it. Sorry its not better news but I am a mechanic and I work on 6-8 dodge trucks a month and 1 or 2 will be showing sighns that the transmission is slipping. One way to tell if it is slipping is to pull the trans dipstick when its warm and you have driven a few miles and see if there are a lot of air bubbles on it. If there are, its slipping.

My engine light came on my 07 Acadia. I had someone run a diagnostic test and it gave me possible problems. 1.)Timing Misalignment with explanation crank sensor is not aligned with cam sensor....

There is a bulletin (or recall depending on your mileage) for this issue. The timing chain stretches due to lack of oil lubrication. The acadia engine is very sensitive to timing chain stretch. There are 2 things they will do. The first is a reprogram to let the PCM adjust for minimal extra slack, they will say to drive it and if it doesn't come back on you're good just keep up with the oil changes (5k miles or less with dexos oil). If that doesn't work they will have to drop your engine and replace all 3 timing chains. It's an all day event and may even take an extra day.
