Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have replaced the alternator, the radiator,

to have it on neutral and continue to rev it

continues to do be in the same condition.

Check air filter and clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank and use the middle grade or high test gas to help clean out the gum and carbon build up.
