While running at normal operating conditions, the unit will lose power for a moment and then regain, and it cycle like this but the low power part gets long as time goes by

Hello Robert,

Sorry to hear about it...
Symptomatic of a muffler or catalytic converter collapsing and blocking all exhaust from getting into the tail pipe... When that baffle finally comes loose you will be stranded where-ever.

Take it down to your favorite exhaust professionals... real soon!

Be safe!

Are you saying you have smoke coming out of the tail pipe ? Or is something dripping onto the exhaust pipe and burning ?
If the smoke is coming out of the tail pipe, is it blue, white, or black ?

Black ( water like ) substance comes out of exhaust.

That's actually normal the result oc complete combustion is (H20)water. The blackish cold is just a little carbon from exhaust pipes. As long as everything else is normal its absolutely normal. Good luck if I fixed ya give me FIX_YA comment

My 1995 eldorado burns oil

Take out the pvc while its running. Look for smoke to come out of pvc hole. If it does than you probably need rings. This would explain the oil loss. Look around the motor for oil "wet spots". You may just have a valve cover leak.Shake the pvc while its out. If it rattles its good. If not, replace. Hope it helps.
