87 bird needs help

Post  petej on Sun Sep 23, 2012 11:16 am

hey all,got a 87 w/3.8 only 86,000 on the ticker..bought it at a auction for a song and sold it to a young friend,who about a year ago claimed it had no power and parked it..saw it today got it back,threw a new battery in it and it started right up! well he wasn't kidding about the power thing any attempt to accelerate and it it just stumbles and will most of the time die.seems to be getting fuel fine as I can see the injectors spraying.(throttle body).Thought maybe it might be ignition not advancing checked timing and it was at 10 btdc as sticker said with the jumper unplugged,plugged back in the marks moved.Asking for help as just replacing things will add up quick and I'm on a tight budget....wondering if anyone has seen these symptoms before and what fixed it..thanks pete
