Re: HELP! PLZ! POOR ACCELLERATION NO POWER UNDER 2500rpm

Apparently, the above did not solve the problem. It worked fine for an unusually longer period of time but it still slowly reverted to its same problem. Ive also changed the fuel pump filter which did not help. Im now at a complete loss. Im really appealing to anyone to please help me with this prob...

Re: HELP! PLZ! POOR ACCELLERATION NO POWER UNDER 2500rpm

When i took the car to a mechanic to check it out, the line was rusted so much inside with big bubbles of rust constricting over half diameter of the ste...

Re: HELP! PLZ! POOR ACCELLERATION NO POWER UNDER 2500rpm

Wudn't a faulty coolant temp sensor would just cause me to jus run really rich ? .And I don't think is the handbrakes cuz as I said If I disconnect negative terminal for a while and plug back car runs real good for a couple days.

Re: Help with 2002 Cedia

and well with regards to the rings being bad, burning oil is definitely a sign of bad piston rings , a dry compression test is a normal test for compression , you can do a wet compression test which is where u pour a small amount of oil in the cylinder prior to the test to seal the rings a bit and i...

Re: HELP! PLZ! POOR ACCELLERATION NO POWER UNDER 2500rpm

compression test done . All cylinders at 180 - 190 psi. (analog tester user). Result good compression. valves may not be stuck. timing may not be off after all? when we pulled out the boot the metal contact in the boot came off and stuck to spark plug. so plug wires will be being changed next.
