while under exceleration the car had no power and lots of black smoke. replaced the hb and ran fairly good with the exception of a slight loss of power around 3000 rpm's but no black smoke. now, the next day there's no power to barely shift gears - no black smoke though - and wonder what could be wrong now? any suggestions would be appreciated:confused: thanks

When you replaced the HB, did you replace the Crank Sensor? Its always good to do that also.

no! it looked in good shape and was replaced about a month ago. i figured it would still be good.

Not enough information to really answer that question.

Was the HB new or used?

I don't know of any here in Canada, but SuperCoupePerformance and SpinningWheels both sell the BHJ (prepare to open your wallet though, they are not cheap). You'll also have to either get your steel crank pulley zero balanced or buy an aluminum crank pulley.

yah, i heard they're not cheap but, it can't be more expensive than changing out used ones every couple days:D

You've got a good point there, and if everything went really south, it would cost the replacement of a crank shaft to.

Bought a pickup this year to save the sc from the winter, so that used my "travel" budget so to speak ;).
