This car does not get driven much. Basically an extreme work beater. It sat for 11 months. Since getting it started up have had 2 problems.
After driven a few miles it begins to run poor. Starving for gas. After a minute or perhaps a few mins it will run well again for a few more miles. Does this sound like a fuel filter or pump. Would a pressure tester tell me either way? Could it be a filter slowing down the pressure or a bad pump slowing down the pressure also? Filter is cheaper and easier to change. In the past I have found the pumps mostly go out they go out totally. Either way its a cheap fairly easy fix.
More serious of a problem. For years it has had a finicky tranny that at times would not like to shift into the next gears until a higher rpm was reached. Sunday it stopped shifting into higher gears all together. I have 1st gear and reverse. I think it is the shift solenoid. One said to try some Lucas, maybe its sticking. I do not think this the case, but I could try it. It has proper fluid level.
