Engine Performance problem
1986 Chevy Monte Carlo V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
My 86 Monte Carlo SS went to sputtering a little the other day and has gotten noticeably worse over the past 2 weeks. I can still drive it but its very noticeable. I dont notice it until the vehicle has leveled out around 35 and then again around 45 and again around 60 or so. Its worse under load like going up a hill. When I give it more gas it seems to stop or at least stop enough that I dont seem to notice it. I changed half my plugs and wires so far (a " buddy" gave me some plug wires that required putting the ends on so became bigger job then had time for) but this is to no avail. Also, I am not getting as good of gas mileage as I was which wasnt good to begin with but I knew that. Um, just could use some direction; fuel filter, carb, other side plugs and wires (which I plan to do Saturday) or possibly intake. Oh yeah and there seems to be some type of electrical ticking from near the dist. I have an HEI ACCEL added, was on when bought it. But she starts fine and it has always bogged down when I stomped down on it like she isnt getting enough like starved or something, I know this could mean flooding also. Please any help would be appreciated.
