off some times but main problem is the car lacks power taking off and seems
to struggle at times like its not getting enough gas. but replaced all plugs and
wires about 2 yrs ago and ran fine but then the alternator went out and it
makes a rattle when driving it at slow speed and lacks power at the same

You would have to put a gauge on there to check fuel pressure. One thing it could be is a bad fuel regulator.


Of course you should have a fuel service perform according to maintenance schedule in your owners manual.

No not, but dont.know were to begins. I seek assistance.
