Fuel pressure is 45 psi, which made me beleave fuel fiter was good too! Sparkplugs were replaced and it drove good enough to get to auto zone and plugged it in and they said it could be the front 02 senser but still not sure, so many sensers!I was thinking throttle position senser but I cant afford just to start replacing senser after senser but I guess I' try the 02 first,hopefully that is it! Thank you for your help! Will let you now how it goes!
