Question The hoe cant seem to get it up ????

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.
