Fuel pump went bad, put new fuel pump in, car fired right up. But now when you rev engine it has a serious hesitation and acts like it has a rev limiter or cut off. Tachometer bounces and just cuts in and out, Could a Mass Air sensor cause all that?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello, I'm Danny.

Is the check engine light on after this issue started? The first thing that needs to be done is to perform a code check to determine the check engine light codes that are stored in your vehicles computer that is causing this issue. Here is a tutorial showing what is involved to check for these codes:

Places like Autozone auto parts stores can check codes for free. After doing this test get back to us with the code information and we can then properly diagnose. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.
