Looked into the Fuel pressure regulator and my car doesnt have one from what I can tell. I believe they were only used on the TPI Systems. My car is using the TBI system. Also I checked into the vacuum system and could find no problems. Currently this is also the stuff I have changed trying to find the problem.
Air Charge Temperature Sensor
Noticeable problems - Car starts but immediatly after the high idle(when started) and transition to normal idle the car shuts off - Car will also not start up directly the key has to usually be turned in 2-3 quick turns and the 4th turn or so it will start. If given gas when started trying to keep the engine started it will also shut it off. I have had it backfire through the intake only one time while trying to give the vehicle gas upon starting.
Also, Upon the initial high starting the car sounds normal like no problems.
Another quick question. The car has been sitting for about 3 years now. Do you think that the gas has possibly broken down and causing this problem?
Thanks for the help and would appreciate another go at it.
