The problem is electrical, the radio is the clue, check the battery and charging system.

The engine is acting like if is not getting enough fuel when the rpms get over 2000. Is it the fuel filter or something else?


depends does it bog down when you rev it up or what does it do. it could be the catalytic convertor clogged up or it could be the fuel filter or the fuel pump strainer causing the problem.

Car is stalling and idleing irradically.


I Would Suggest That You Complete A Engine Cylinder Leak Down Test.....(not A Compression Test But A Leak Down Test) this will tell you if you have internal problems....possible worn rings or a burnt valve(s) I would use a smoke machine to check for vacuum leaks also. Good Luck
