Thank you Jack, I will try the exhaust test before replacing the fuel pump. Do you think the need to drive it, for say at least 30 minutes on the highway, before the problems starts will hurt anything in the test?
On a side note on the fuel pump. When I turn the key to "run" without starting the motor my fuel pump starts running like they all do. The difference is mine never shuts off. It will keep running for over a minute. I think it should only run for a few seconds and then shut off. Maybe it is the fuel pump?
Some more interesting facts, all temperatures are Fahrenheit and all temperatures are outside air.
*30 degrees - Noticeable but not really a problem
*50 degrees - It becomes an issue but is still manageable by pulling over and turning the motor off. Works better if you sit for a minute but just killing it and starting immediately helps.
*70 degrees - I probably should not be driving it since the lack of acceleration becomes a safety issue.
Warmer temps are right around the corner and I am freaking out, LOL. Any and all help is appreciated.
