I have just put my 1979 Trans Am Back on the road, It's been parked since 1996. Has 75,000 miles on it. I just had a local GM dealership give it a tune-up. I picked it up and it sounded very smooth but as I left, It would die about every quarter mile on acceleration and the engine would cough then stop. I could start it back up pretty quick but would only go a little ways and die again? They put a new rotor, plugs, fuel filter, air cleaner. This is the problem I took it into them for in the first place. Any suggestions? Is this the right place to take a car of that year? It sat for 11 years covered in a polebarn with cement floor, I would start it a couple times a year and take it for a quick run down the road each summer and fall.
have the same problem?
