CHEVROLET CAPRICE EXHAUST PROBLEM

1992 Chevrolet Caprice • 165,000 miles

Im interested in buying a 1992 chevy caprice classic 305 v8 has 165,000 kms the lady is 86 yrs old all she said was wrong with car was when driving it would have a hard time going faster then 35 km/h could this be something major wrong? A few friends told me it could be something simple such as a clogged fuel filter? Or can this be something majorly wrong with tranny and if so are they expensive for a caprice?I need to know asap thanks

Could be a fuel filter and pick-up sock in fuel tank is clogged-up, exhaust system is restricted and transmission slipping-Dunno about prices it varies with location-check with tranny shops-

Make sure the engine is fully warmed-up and then check transmission fluid level if okay put shift gear in all gears a couple times and then attempt to move it-won't move have it further checked out-
