Engine Performance problem
1999 Mazda 323 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 51000 miles

My 1300cc 323f mazda revs freely when it's not under load, but under load it has a terrible flat spot which can sometimes be improved (temporarily) by removing my foot fom the gas pedal and then re-applying.
Sometimes the car will not accelerate for 2-3 seconds and sits at a static speed (usually 30 - 40 mph)
it is not so bad in first gear but gets worse in 2nd and 3rd.
Although I suspect fuel starvation I wonder if you colud give me any pointers.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Best wishes, Colin
