96 GCL feels like I'm pulling dead weight!!!!!!!!!
I just bought a 96 GCL with 148,000 from a friend of the family that wanted an upgrade. She's had it since 60,000 and had regular maintance but with no hubby she just had done what the shop told her. SO a lot was overlooked.
I've already changed the plugs, wires are only a year old, 5,000 miles on tires and brakes, I greased all steering and joints, cat was recalled so that's new, but came back with a cracked header I just took it off and TIG welded it close, I'm a Machinist so I bored out the throttle body personaly while the header was off, have run lucas injector cleaner, and lucas oil stabilizer.
With all that said, it is still running a little rough at idle. Feels like its either missing a hit or the timings off. No $ right now so I have to do all the tests myself and haven't learned how to check timing yet so any hints on that is appreciated.
The biggest problem I have is that once I get to 3rd and 4th gear I have NO get-up-and-go when I hit the gas. Feels like I'm pulling a load and going up a hill at the same time. Plans to change Trans filter and fluid next paycheck.
Anybody know how to do a TransFlush with out paying a shop?
That's all for now. Thanks for the help.
