My C3 ideals and cruse fine but, when I step down on it in passing gear it falls on its face. It acts like it's not getting enough fuel. I have not checked fuel pressure yet. What should the pressure be?

Looks like you've been waiting a while for a response. Not much interest here for those older cars.

I don't know the answer to your question, but manuals can be purchased that should answer your question. I would think Haynes would be selling something that would help. You should also check your fuel/air filters.

The Crossfire was infamous for being airflow limited, so you're not going to make a lot of power.
