Sounds like you have a mass air meter problem. What do you have for a meter and injector size and so on?

I ve had the car for a year and a half now. It was fine the first year. I parked it over the winter and then I started running into these problems. After all this started I started replacing the parts the people said it might be this or it might be that. But haven't fixed it yet. And I only fixed the logistical answers I got. Not the ones that were " try checking your tire pressure, or check you rear passenger tail bulb, or check your passenger handle, or worst case senario replace the drivers handle". The next things on my list were fuel pump and reg, mass air flow, and egr. I just need help installing the pump and reg. I'm not sure how to do it

does it have a fuel pressure gauge on it? and if it does what is the pressure? The regulator is easy to install but will need t pressure gauge to adj it.

Hi DMURB, you've come to the right place for help. savageracer6969 is one of the best mechanics on the site. He's done a lot of work on my vette. He even turned down my tires... hmm.gif Lots of good people here.

Yeah man that would be great. Maybe we can meet up this weekend and ill try it. Its weird though cause it doesn't go crazy all the time only after you've driven it for like 20 minutes. Then I have to shut it off for like 10 minutes and its fine for another 20

Do you have a Cat converter on that car? If that's block, that will wreck your day.
