Car lacks power when I give it gas it bucks


When you have a car that starts running poorly. In diagnosis the first thing you put on it a fuel pressure tester and it's the last thing to take off. So check your pressure and get back to me. You should find around 35-40psi when the car is idling

wont hurt to replace the fuel filter also...for starters


I don't like throwing parts at a car and hope it fixes it. I like to diagnosis the problem at fix or replace part. Save costumer money and they keep coming back to my shop when they know that I am not guessing with their money
