1991 Caprice - Parking brake & Fuel

Worked on the parking brake Friday PM . The petal assembly was some what rusty . I sprayed WD40 on the " pawl " that retains the petal in the down position , when you depress it . Got that to working and put the trim pieces back on .


Started cutting out , on the test drive , if I gave it very much gas .

45 mph was about all it would do , w/o cutting out .


I am inclined to think it is not getting enough gas & leaning out ? ( Could also be a problem with spark , but I do not think so . )


Hope to check the Throttle Position Sensor , first , Saturday AM .



God bless
Wyr
