The hoe wont go ???

95 chev 350 throttlebody set up

starts fine idles smooth and passed aircare

problem is no power when i give it some gas she falls on her face.....even sputters and pops until i ease of the gas.

if i drive gentle i can get the rpms up but any attempt at leaving that guy on the 10 speed in my dust are extremely disappointing .


almost feels like when you take that corner hard with a empty tank and you get air in the fuel line ( except no resolve when the corners over )

any ideas where to start ?

I agree, not getting enough gas.

Fuel filter or pump. I've had to replace a pump on a mustang I had 20 years ago. All of a sudden it went like a bat out of hell.
Similar symptoms as you describe above.

Catalytic converter, I bet you anything. I had a full size blazer, same motor same problem. It kept getting worse and worse. It starting making all sorts of bangs and clunks, cut out the cat and the thing went like a race car.

my guess would be all stated.

vaccum leak,
fuel filter or pump
Cat.. although i think unlikely.

for vaccum leaks, just start wiggling hoses and listening.

Also where the line from the pcv valve goes to the base of the throttle body assembly, always gets plugged with oil and shit. make sure the PCV is good and make sure that line is clear and free flowing and that it's not all plugged with shit in the throttle body.

Did it all of a sudden just start doing this? It's prolly your cat, bought a xj that had a plugged cat, pulled the o2 sensor out and it ran better so I chopped the cat out and done, meow!

Omfg Omfg Omfg.... Giggity giggity I knew a v8 was supost to have more jam then what I been dealing with...


Couldn't even blow through the old filter and can't even imagine how liquid was making it through.

Knew something was different when she fired on the 1st turn and when I got onto brunette and put my foot down...... Well let me say this I have never been so delighted to see a fresh timmys come flyn out of the cup holder lol..

She even broke loose from a 30 kph rolling start. :-)

Sounds like your fuel line is bleeding down.

EIEIO
04-17-2013, 10:28 AM
what yoda604 said, probably fuel pump. Had a buddy have the exact same issue, had to crank it over and stop 3 times before it would start. Replaced pump and starts every time now.

it doesnt work on toyota's, but most vehicles the pump will run with the key on.
leave the key in the run position for a minute before trying to start to give it a chance to build fuel pressure

no the pump only runs for a short burst to prime the pressure he needs to cycle the key to the on position a few time this will initiate the pump every time he does

Technically though, should the system be bleeding back? I would think that he should have a couple pounds of pressure in the line at all times. :dontknow:

Well jst tried to go for tims.... NO start no pump noise..

But Damn I needs me tims grrr


3 hard punch to the gas tank = 1 sore wrist and one double double


Guess I will repeat but with foot so it will start for after work drive home..



Yay guess who's dropping a tank really soon lol

I guess a new sending unit and pump is a good thing for peace of mind off road and at71 bucks it aiain't that bad...

Always broke
04-17-2013, 02:17 PM
The reason the pump failed was probably from the plugged filter!!

Always broke
04-17-2013, 02:19 PM
Just a word of advice don't use aftermarket fuel pump they are a lot louder and don't last as long !!

85chevy
04-17-2013, 05:37 PM
Yea fuel pump shuts off because its usually tied into the oil pressure switch so it doesn't turn back on till after there is oil pressure thus the reason u need to turn the key on and off.
