serious loss of power when engine is warm
i have a 1986 2.9 v6. what would cause my engine to sound like a lawn mower randomly.. well guess its not random. it does it after i drive about 10+ miles. it does it in any gear after the 10 mile drive. It just sounds like a lawn mower engine, and sounds almost like its backfiring rapidly, then it has absolutly NO power. i mean its ridiculous, fully loaded semi's pass me going up hills!! its really starting to piss me off, im thinking about just junking the dang thing. but if i did that id have to way to get to work.. and i dont have money for a new car either. so any help would be great.
