On first start I need to prime by turning on fuel pump only three to four times and then maybe depress pedal once to start and may have to this more than once. This has been a problem for a while. Now, once it starts and in park it seems smooth running. Once I depress the gas it can bog and has even died. Replaced fuel filter and it helped somewhat but still slow acceleration, but once rolling (fifty five) it maintains and seems okay until I accelerate more. After first start, subsequent starts are easier if engine is still warm. Had some work done on exhaust system but there is still a leak (loud) towards the front. Did an STP fuel injector treatment today, cannot tell yet if it helped. The check engine light comes on after about fifteen minutes operation under normal operation. Do not notice it as much on highway. It runs good aside from the recent sputtering. Vehicle sat for sometime (year plus) and I recently replaced transmission. Do not have the funds to take to garage so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
