  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Dying under load

Question

Hey all. I can't get the Phoenix to move on anything higher than idle. In Park/Neutral I can step on the gas all day and it'll be happy to rev, but in Drive if I try to step on the gas it wants to die. Transmission load problem? The Transmission leaked all the fluid out over the last few months so I had to bring it back to the proper level. Ran and drove fine the day I did that (Saturday), but yesterday (Monday) it was doing as described. Only other thing I did that Saturday was change the oil/filter, but like I said, she ran top on Saturday.

Change the gas filter.

Agree on the filter change.  If the fuel that's in it has been sitting a long time, you might want to drain that also.  Alcohol blended fuels have a strong affinity for moisture.  Is you car carbureted or injected?
