Engine Performance problem
1978 Chevy El Camino V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 78000 miles
when I crank up my vehicle, it will run just fine in neutral. However, when the car warms up, and I put it in gear, the engine fails to produce much power and sputters. After a few minutes it will start pouring black smoke out the tailpipe then die. I have replaced the carb with a brand new one and same with all my plugs, wires and distributor. The only things I havent replaced yet are the fuel pump and the coil pack. Right now Im at a standstill. I dont know if it will matter for compiling an answer but, the vehicle has been parked under a tree for ten years until recently and has had the transmission rebuilt in the past week.I also put new wheel cylinders and brake shoes on it along with new axle seals, alternator and radiator. Any ideas what could be causing this strange problem would be appreciated
have the same problem?
