Help

Hey yall this one is alittle off topic. I am a big time PSD fan and own one mmyself but i was wonder if anyone out their would help me out on another car problem. I inherited a 91 caprice classic and i figured i would drive it alittle while to work and back to save miles on my PSD. Anyway im having a problem with it cutting out with more than a quarter throttle. and it only dies after about 10-15 after driving it. seems like as soon as it heats up it starts cutting out. I know this is the wrong site back any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

What's it got for a motor? 305? Usually the biggest problem with old GM 305's & 350's in the Caprice's, C-series, & anything else without TPI is usually a vacuum leak. Those engines rely heavily on vacuum pressure. Get yourself a vacuum tester & see if you can find a leak.
