Customer Question
I have a '86...

I have a '86 Cadillac Cimarron 2.8 engine. Engine cranks and has a hard time starting. After it starts it idles rough and there is a bit of lost power.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It fluctuates

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cimarron yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have had the coil replaced. I replaced the MAF sensor, O2 sensor new wires, plugs, cap & rotor

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that is about all

Hi, my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Verify you have good fuel supply pressure and no leaks between the tank and pump. Verify the fuel filter is not restricted and the pump is functioning properly. Other causes to look for would be low compression, timing, Faulty distributor, firing order incorrect if after replacing cap rotor and wires. Let me know
