    Loss of power - 2002 Virage with single carburetor

    I have a 2002 Virage. It has two cylinders and a single carb.

    I have read several of the posts so far and plan on replacing the fuel lines and rebuilding the carb.

    My question is the first time out this summer it ran well but gradually got really load, and became slower ( will only do 40 mph, use to go 52 mph).

    Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Is this a carburetor engine or fuel injected?

    Virage i is fuel injected.

    Check cylinder compression.

    Do the spark plugs stick straight up from the top of the engine? That would indicate a carburetor engine.

    Fuel injected engines have the spark plugs at a low angle towards the air intake.

    Definitely a carb engine. Spark plugs do stick straight up. Pulled carb for rebuild today. Looked at some other things but couldn't find anything definitive to cause my problem.
