Sounds like an overly lean (not enough fuel) condition. Check for vacuum leaks, faulty fuel injectors, or bad fuel pressure regulator. HTH. -Jim

I changed fuel filter today it runs at idle fine now but in gear it feel like it misfire or something just not right still and back fires. . Checked the fuel injectors. They are spraying dome like spray each side


Thanks Jim.. How will i know if the regulator is faulty
