Sounds like a transmission problem. Change the transmission filter and fluid and make sure it is topped off to the proper level. Have the transmission checked out to ensure there isn't a problem in the torque converter.

1982 el camino 305 4 brl has just developed backfiring @ carb , ran great after tune up but still had backfire @high speed . It now backfires @ low speed. Could it be timing belt? \ 131,000 miles w/ 400...


the timing maybe off but it could be a miss adjusted carb. there is no timing belt it is a chau=in and that is most likely not the problem. timing is corrected at the distubtor. but i would check the carb it may be dupming to much fuel

most likely a weak fuel pump or a clogged filter. Check fuel pressure with a gauge or as its bogging down spray brake cleaner in the Throttle Body. If this allows it to increase RPM then its the pump or filter.

My 1981 chevy El Camino V6 3.8L 229 idle gets high when engine is hot and when engine gets cold idle drops not sure why can i have any suggestions


Sounds like a problem with your choke. It may just need to be cleaned (linkages and all). If the choke doesn't close after reaching operating temperature, the engine will rev high. This indicates a choke stuck in the open position. Also, you may need to look for a vacuum leak if cleaning it doesn't fix it. On a 1981 GM product, I'd expect the vacuum hoses to be stiff and cracking.
