Engine Performance problem
2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 240000 miles
My engine has developed a rough choking spitting performance during acceleration. Gas mileage is fine (about 21 mpg avg.). Idle is fine, and cruising is fine (highway and city). The problem developed first at 40-50 mph when the over-drive gear kicked in, and now it is pretty much every gear and speed during acceleration.
- 240,000 miles (60,000 since this " salvage" engine)
- rebuilt transmission (12K mis, 10 months ago)
- Just got the head gasket replace (leaking but not over heating).
- Good vehicle, want to keep it running.
Thanks and be well
