We just recently bought an 89 Z24. We replaced plugs, wires, pcv, and Tranny fluid and filter. Did an idle relearn and for about 20 minutes of driving it's great, Then when you get on the gas it sounds like somethings holding it back it takes off but not like it did before. Also when you turn the car on after letting it cool off the Tranny still won't go in drive. You have to give it gas a couple of times then it's fine, shifts great and everything. Can some one give me any idea of what the hell is happening.
Thanks

the paower loss me be a sympton of a faulty catalytic converter. it may be getting clogged, ristricting the airflow and bogging down the enigne. The tranny could be afew differant things. there is cable from the top of the tranny that goes down behind the exhaust manifold and into the car (tv cable) make sure its not kinked up or anything. sometimes they can come dislodged and fall onto the exhaust manifold and the plastic will melt to the cable causing difficulties in shifting.
