4 Answers


Motor may be getting tired. May want to take it into a shop to have it evaluated. May just need a tune up.

I am a mechanic my buddie and I got the car from my boss the car has SAT for about a year . You press gas runs fine till I gets hot and then first quarter of the pedal has acceleration and then it boggs down cleaned fuel lines fuel filter idles fine only some times you press gas and I does the bogging down only when the car is warmed up.


How about the fuel regulator? You could still have good fuel pressure at an idle but if the regulator is stuck open it would not increase the fuel pressure at higher rpms. You know how to test this?

We will be doing cleaning of IAP sensor new fuel pump tune up cap button plugs and I will mention the fuel regulator to my buddie tomorrow
