Your problem might be in the throttle body or TPS. Check it with a multimeter. Slowly move the throttle and watch the meter for erratic movement. If it looks good clean the body and reassemble. Be sure to check the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) if your car has one. I hope this helps, Ray

Bogging and hesitation on acceleration iddle is fine

You definitely covered most of the bases. Considering all you've done so far, I would check into the fuel system next. First, how old is the fuel filter? Has it been changed? Yes, a bad filter can cause the problems your having. Next would be the fuel pressure regulator. You need a fuel pressure gauge to check it, which you should be able to rent from a good auto parts store. That will also tell you how good your fuel pump is, i.e. if the pump can deliver the necessary fuel pressure off idle. After that, I would check the injectors themselves for wear or blockage. A bottle of fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank would be a good idea, cheap, quick, and it wont make anything worse. If all that checks out, check your catalytic converter, a clogged or bad cat will also do what your describing. Good luck.

Starts good, idles good but bogs down when accelerating.

its the caburtor, it blocks the fuel from the pump and it also bogs out, factory fault you need to replace the caburator and bypass all the smog stuff, just install the o2 sensor into the air intak hose thats what i did
