Lately this car has lost lots of power. It used to fly up the
mountains with power to spare, but now downshifts to 3rd & creeps up
hills slowing down to below 50 by the time i reach the top. I've run
some diesel purge through it, & i remember an adjustment of the
throttle cable i had done on my old 85 sd, but i can't see any play or
anything amiss with the throttle. Also, the exhaust out of the tail
pipe seems pretty weak.. I think this has had the trap oxydizer taken
out.. there is just a length of pipe now..
Unfortunately, i'm driving to san diego tomorrow.. so won't get any
help 'till after i get back. But any help anyone has would be greatly
appreciated. I will check the group while gone, & take a few hand
tools in case i can try something simple.
It idle's fine, & seems to pause briefly before revving up while in
neutral. Perhaps a turbo problem?
Thanks in advance. I always enjoy reading this group, even though i
don't post much.
