Is the check engine light on?

Yes it is i need to take it to a shop but don't have the money right now. I was hoping it would be a simple expense


Take it to advance or autozone and they will check the codes for free. Then post the codes back here.


they cant check codes on a 95, just about no one can. You need a specific scanner for 94-95 GM, its some BS OBD 1.5 crap. The problem with these engines is lots problems cause similar symptoms. Good things to check is fuel pressure, vacuum pressure, and basic tune up items
