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.

How do you know when the fuel pump for a 1991 Chevy Caprice has gone bad?

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
