88 bronco. runs fine untill it warms up then loses most power


Sound like an ignition issue.The hotter temps are causing a part to fail.If you've never replaced the ignition coil,this is the easiest place to start.Another possibilty would be the pickup in the distributor,or the reluctor on the distributor shaft.

# replace fuel filter
# remove fuel from pump the one that goes back to the pump remove fuel cap blow threw with compressed air to make sure there is no blockages
# if u can get a fuel pressure gauge check fuel pressure it should be about 4-6 psi
# on the carby fuel where it connects to the carby there should be a bolt take it of and from memory there is a little screen filter check if its blocked and clean blow air into the carby fuel inlet
# on the bottom of carby body midway is 2 nuts facing down one has the main jey in it when u take this off all the fuel should come out of the carby place air nozzle in hole and hit it with high pressure to clear

Loosing power after my car is warmed up.


Some things you may want to check would be the fuel pump, oxygen sensors and your catylitic converter. and obviously all the filters.
A quick test on the fuel pump would be to get down to the gas tank and tap it a little bit with something. This may shake the fuel pump around causing any clog to clear out. As for the filters(oil,air,fuel) you may want to replace them if there is any sign of them being dirty or clogged.
Run the car for about a half hour. Then you will have to look under the car (while still running) and look at your cat. If it is glowing red, this means that it most likely has been clogged with build up restricting your exhaust.

91 nissan Sentra losses power at highway speeds


remove the front 02sensor and drive the car like that, remove means complety take it apart from exaust, if problem goes away or gets so much better then your catalitic converter at the exaust is restricted and need a new one
