drop perfect! Then a few weeks later I'm driving it

gas and it goes but i can't give it a lot of gas or it
will back fire like crazy pop and not go. I've

and rotor and a new fuel filter. It ran good for about
an hour and then started doing the same thing
again..... please if anybody can help me please

is the check engine light on? Google "how to read gm obd1 codes" it is easy. also, it would be a good idea to test your fuel pressure. weak fuel pump could be a problem. if your pressure is out of spec for your engine it wont run right.


Backfiring is a timing issue.
