I have a 2001 2.4l oldsmobile alero it was running fine. Then all of a sudden going up a hill the car started to lose power. I just recently changed the plugs and coil, I put new ones in last night since the old ones was covered in carbon. It is using a unreal amount if fuel and it only runs decent at higher rpms.

  • Got it thanks for the info the fuel pressure regulator was cause the car to flood and one of the coil packs went back
  • Fuel was in the vacuum line

    Your original post contained good facts about what you saw and what happened. That helped give clues to potential problems--over rich mixture due to carbon on plugs.
