ok, everyday when i start my car, it takes awhile at first, it seems like it starts, run like crap for a few seconds, i so much as breathe on the gas and it stalls. then when it finally gets idling normally, i shift into reverse or drive and press the gas, and nothing happens, if i keep it floored it lurches after a few seconds but thats it, it seems like it keeps sputtering and then dying alot more than it used to. can anyone tell me hat this is?

Check the normal stuff first: Plugs and wires, air filter, etc

Maybe its a dead fuel pump?

well, i replaced the plugs and wires recently, and the intake is pretty new (weapon r dragon, its ok), but it could be the fuel pump. if the pump is bad would that cause alot of hesitation and the throttle to seem like its really messed up?

make sure the MAF is connected maybe?

it is, but even before the new intake it was doing it, and i replaced the maf sensor, so maybe ill just replace the fuel pump for the hell of it. how much do those cost?

New fuel pump runs $107 for just the pump and for the whole assembly including strainer mounting bracket and everything else is likr $400+ :shock:

Thats prices from autozone
they sell used on ebay for about $50

I have one in my parts car I can sell ya pretty cheap.. I know its good because the car ran great before I tore the motor out
