What it does: when either accelerating moderately, or going uphill, it acts almost like theres bad gas, or the fuel filter is clogged with grape jell or something...
If I really get my foot into it, it takes off!

What's ben done recently: New air filter/fuel filter/spark plugs/gas treatment.
I've owned this only for a short time & it's so far not run really well, I believe.


Year: 1987
Engine: 2.7L
Trans: manual 5 speed
Miles: 140,000

Cheers & thanks!!
Rich

if it was your clutch your revs wouldn't drop just the speed would.
