Excellent information. I just printed the entire article out and will give it to my tech. It has to be the ABS system. It all points to that. You are good !! I will definitely keep you in the loop on this. I've already recommended this site to co-workers !! My brakes are 70% of the time acting like they need ABS when they don't (dry pavement/normal stopping. I've owned the vehicle since day 1 and know what's normal and not and this is not. Thank you for everything to date.

99up is 103 ft lbs per Hayes (98 and earlier is 180) for the CV axle hub nut (big 36mm one). The hub attachment bolts that are 18mm (hub to steering knuckle) are 77 ft lbs.

I finally found out the problem. A guy at Jiffy Lube told me that there is a flap installed at the tank (To prevent someone sticking a hose down to steal gas)and this flap some times gets stuck.
So me being an electrician, I jammed a piece of 6-4 range cable into the spout down to the flap and loosed it.
Now it doesn't take 10 minutes to pump $20 worth of gas...

Thank you repairdog. Ended up replacing both hubs. As other threads mentioned, the job was relatively easy. I used my tire to rest the rotor/caliper on while working on the hub assemblies.
The hub assemblies were $115.00 each through AutoZone and they warranty them for one year.

#2162 of 3676 1985 Jimmy VERY SLOW
Apr 15, 2006 (4:16 am)
I dont know what the problem is. It takes over 20 seconds to get to 60mph. And i have only gotten it up to 75. I know it's not a dragster but it should be faster than what it is.
PS it has a new motor 67k miles. Also it has 31" tires on it. Can that be the problem?

Was this happening befor the tire change? Which engine is it, the 2.2 or 2.8 V6. On the V6 those were car motors and reaching way back in my brain I had one that kept having the choke assembly not open properly so not enough air getting in. Also check the air filter for restriction/dirty, look to see if any vac leaks (hoses), and how about the fuel filter - been changed?
