I'm having some problems getting moving, the car is bucking like crazy if it doesn't stall (unless the clutch is dumped with full throttle) This is getting very annoying. Under normal driving it just acts like it's not getting any fuel but once the car is moving it's fine. Anyone had this before? I'm guessing fuel pressure regulator or a very sticky clutch all of a sudden. I'm going to check the fuel system real quick but thought I'd see if anyone had any thoughts here......thnx

Re: 'bucking' condition??? (glepko)

Mine is doing that as of right now. It's done that before and I replaced it with new spark plugs and distributor cap and especially the COOLANT TEMP. SENSOR.
So, we'll see after tomorrow to see if that's the problem again.

Re: 'bucking' condition??? (Dr Don Madbug's Dad)

Thanks for the tip, I'll take a look at that but why would the problem only occur under normal driving conditions, just light acceleration, or driving in a parking lot, but dumping the clutch and going to full throttle the damn thing runs fine? I'll let you know how that boot looks.....
