Could be any number of things, Throttle position sensor, vacuum leak, fuel injector issue, faulty/dirty throttle body.


put a pressure gage on the car and it keeps bottoming out it will not hold pressure

well replace the map sensor and the car holds pressure,but it stumbles when you give it gas


What pressure gauge? Fuel pressure? Vacuum pressure? Can you give more detail on what the gauge read?


it was fuel pressure gage,put a new map senor on it and now it holding it's fuel pressure but it has got hard to start


I havent heard of a map sensor affecting fuel pressure. Check your vacuum pressure.
