    Hello all new here hope you can help.

    I picked up a 1995 K1500 5.7l 4x4 Suburban back in december its got 225k on it.

    It has just started lagging/ no power 65 mph is all it will do and is shifting rough i have to get off the gas for it to shift and its running high rpms 3k the last tune up was at 205k on 10/09 just was looking for ideals of where to start.

    I believe there is some type of flow tester. also take a look at the cap and rotor. it has been going on three years since it was replaced just see how corroded it is and clean it up some if it is really bad. just another thought as well.

    As Mike said there is a flow tester that goes in were the O2 sensor goes. Most muffler shops have these. If its a '95 with original cat I would replace it even if thats not the problem now, I'm sure its plugged up some. Also some shops have temp. guns that reads the exhaust temp before and after cat. I believe the temp differance should be about 100 degrees.
