    run the codes on the car. That should be your first step in diagnosis. Go to the tech archive. All you need is a paper clip and if your car is before 89 a test light. You will run both key on engine off and key on engine running tests.

    It could be a host of different issues . The computer will store any codes and tell you what is not functioning properly.

    Okay thanks. From your experience does it sound like exhaust is clogged?

    Not likely even if you still have the factory cats on it, but you would smell rotten eggs if it was

    pull the codes. It will tell you if there's an oxygen sensor issue due to clogged cats
