Here is the deal, your carburetor is beginning to show signs of age such as being gummed up and rubber seals in the jets getting hard, and dirt etc. My 1985 Caprice did exactly the same thing and I when I balanced the expenses of each option ( rebuilding or replacing) I used the cheap one. Go to Auto Zone or Advance or Pep Boys or any other auto parts place and buy two containers of fuel system cleaner. There are only two brand that I have found that are effective and they are Vavoline Complete Fuel System Cleaner OR Slick 50 Fuel System Cleaner. Here is how you tell if you are getting what I am talking about; IF it doesn't cost around $10 a bottle, it is the wrong stuff! I know there are some for around $6-$7 and other around a couple of bucks but they don't work. Shell out the $20 on a good-odds gamble and dump two of them in your tank. Of course do this when you are at the gas station just before you fill it up.

If it is your fuel system which I highly suspect, you should notice a difference in less than a day and in some case within a few hours. I really hope it works because if it does, I might have saved you hundreds, if I am wrong, I cost you $20. Sorry I can't offer reimbursements but at least you will get some decent sleep knowing that your fuel system is whistle clean.

After the first treatment, I put one can of that in my Caprice every time I changed the oil and it kept it going until some idiot ran a stop sign and sent it south.

First, Chevy made the Caprice and Ford made the Capri. I have a 1985 Chevy Caprice Classic and it weights roughly 4500 lbs.

1965 was the first year for the Caprice. You can see it at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:65_Caprice.jpg In reply to: I believe that 1967 was the first year of Caprice

Check your fuel pressure first then go from there.

In the vehicle, or under the hood, or in the trunk. Check there first.

Technically the lug pattern reads out at 5x4.27 if you look it up online, but its actually 5x5. I have a 1991 Chevy Caprice Classic, and this caused me some problems when I first buoght it.

Its right above the ignition coil. Infact you have to remove it first to remove the ignition coil.

The first Chevrolet Caprice was produced in 1966. The Caprice was officially the Chevrolet brand's top-line series. The first Caprice series would go in production until 1970.

pretty rare because it is the first year that caprice had a box

I had this happen. When the fuel pump goes back the first indication is a stutter in the engine. The stutter will increase until the CHECK ENGINE light illuminates. Then the performance will deteriorate rapidily until the engine stalls. It will only crank after that but will not fire. It costs about $850 to have the dealer do this job. There is more than just the fuel pump involved. Scroll through the old questions on Caprice and I posted something else on this a while ago. vbd

Change the spark plugs and wires first. That is often all they need to run right.

Chevy trucks are way better. They have better suspension, and everything. Trust me-I am a repossession agent. I have tried towing cars with both. The first time i used the Ford, the back end came off while I was carrying a Chevy Caprice. That's why now, my entire fleet of trucks are all Chevy.

first is the air on you may need to thoroughly clean the air mixture assembly where the breather tube connects the engine

First, you must move your backseat and remove it from the vehicle, then you use the correct tool to correctly remove the rear speakers. It is very time consuming.

1959. It was based on the Chevy full size platform. Starting in 1964 the El Camino was based on the Chevelle platform.

The first model of the Chevrolet Caprise came out in 1965 and was produced by General Motors. The Caprice was one of the most popular models sold in that year.
