View Full Version : Engine dies when above 3200rpm only when under load

I have an 82 S S and it has begun quitting on me only when under load and only when above 3200 rpm. I have rebuilt the carb and that doesn't fix it -- I remember seeing some posts on this probelm this summer --would appreciate any suggestions

Start by checking the fuel filter(s)....it (they) may be plugged and not allowing enough gas to flow through. If they haven't been changed in a while it would be worth doing as good maintenance. The fuel pump could also be unable to keep enough supply to the carb. Since the problem is happening under load it seems like sources of reduced fuel delivery would be the first places to check.
