If so have you replaced the fuel filter? Any vacume leaks? Also if the the throtal position sensor is going bad it will do this, but the CEL would always be on with a P0122 code...

EDIT: Also make sure you MAS sensor is pluged in (on the airbox line thing)
The fuel pump has never been replaced as far as i know.

The TPS was changed last year and the MAS is plugged in.

I doubt it is coming from the fuel pump because when accelerating, the car is not loosing speed or rpm. it just won t gain any rpm either. It is like the engine wants to rev up but somethng is keeping it from doing it. then it does rev up .

The problem onl exist under load too. Engine runs fine in neutral

What should i be looking into before rulling the fuel pump?

Thank you
