i have a 91 ford tempo that idles fine but is now having some troubles starting. like i said it idles fine but then when i go
to drive it, it bogs when i push on the gas and in order to go you have to lightly press the peddle and accelerate slowly

When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? It's under the driver side. If not that, I suggest a fully qualified mechanic to go over it thoroughly.


Fuel filter...Or fuel pump...

mine is a 1990 just started doing same thing but it has sit for 5 yrs so maybe bad gas? if not then imma try fuel pump as i have already replaced fuel filter yesterday so idk
