Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got this car on a trade the other owner said he was over it because he could not find the problem with the engine, it is the 350 throttle body model, he could not find the problem, I wonder if the straight pipes could have abering on this.

What year model? Could be the throttle position sensor acting up.

My camaro has the same multi tuned port fuel injection. After replacing my throttle position sensor idling issues and acceleration issues cleared up. If you need I can explain how to test you throttle position sensor to keep you from just having to buy a new one not knowing if yours is bad or not.

Figured it must be an 84 when you said it was the 350 throttle body model. Never heard of that but the L83 did have a couple of throttle bodies.
