when my car is cold/warm it acts like it's not getting alot of fuel or its misfiring. I put 8.5 mm accel plug wires on it and ngk-r plugs and a new fuel filter, but it didnt stop. Im thinking maybe i need new fuel injectors, but im not sure. I could sure use some help!!! 1[thumb] [burnout]

Im having the same problem, when I step on the gas, it feels like there is no power, like hesitating in first. I had the transmission fluid check and that was ok, guess I will check the fuel pump.

My car hesitates after taking highway curves, (turnarounds) at certain speeds. Once I get on a straight surface it hesitates as if there isnt enough gas passing through the injectors

I had an intake or just a cone filter shall we say, then i made my own cold air then i took it off, but now i have the stock air filter and box, but i took the resontor off the side and the snorkel. But it's been doing it for some time now, I think it's the fuel injectors but my friend said its rare that fuel injectors go out i dont know. I just want a new engine thats all

Yeah but my car does it all the time no matter what. Full tank of gas or low, it does all the time. But how much are fuel pumps??????? [driving]

now THAT is the good ol' fuel pump problem. for many others it would probably be a faulty DPFE, especially if its happening more often when the car is warm.

WEll I don't know all those abbreviations that the experts here use. But I do know that you are all experiencing fuel pump problems. I've had to replace mine and the recall letters are in the mail for 2000/01 foci owners.
