You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator or a dirty fuel filter. Start with the simple and inspect the vacuum line to your fuel pressure regulator and regulator for any leaks. Once the regulator is in working condition, move on to replacing the fuel filter.

When first driving, I hear a high pitched whistling sound while my foot is on the accelerator. As I pick my foot off the accelerator, the sound will stop completely or after a moment or two and then return...


I have the exact same problem, however reversed. My whistling sound stops when I accelerate and starts when my foot is off the accelerator. Frustrates me and am afraid to have it looked at for fear of the cost of fixing this problem. Have you since discovered what the problem is or was?

Bogs out when i accelerate


plug wires!? They go bad over time, but may still look ok from outside ... get an ohm meter and pull a wire and check ... more than 500 ohms per foot is no good..... Good high quality wires will be no more than 150 ohms per foot.
