Did you already replace the "accordion" style hose from the air cleaner to the intake manifold ? I would def replace that before throwing other parts at your car.

Try putting your car in neutral and blipping the throttle. As the engine rocks, the split in the hose will open and close, letting in un-metered air, and make your car stumble and run like crap...if the hose is the issue !

Personally, I would think that a bad fuel pump would be more likely to cause a problem on your highway drive when you need more fuel, than when you are idling. I would hold off on the fuel pump. Try going up a long hill. A bad fuel pump will make your car stumble as it gets starved for fuel.

Your car won't won't run right till you fix that boot.

Why on earth would you replace a fuel pump on a car which shows evidence of having more fuel than it needs.

Please explain your rational..... ???

Wow ! This is almost funny. Sad, though.

How many of us said Air Leaks by now?

One can lead a horse to water. But we can't make it think.

The solution is cheap.

It is stalling at the light due to an air leak. Probably through that cracked boot.

​​​​​​The fuel pump appears to provide enough fuel for the car in normal service, right?

Someone won't have much work to do to finish this project once you bail on it.

the boot is not cracked, he was mistaken. and no, the car has a hard time starting, will stumble upon acceleration after its warmed up, and stalls frequently although not as much as before i replaced the fpr. i'm thinking about the fuel filter and the code i got for the iacv which i can't erase. i'm leaning more on the iacv, but there could be a clog in the filter.

Does the car have a hard time starting on cold starts, warm starts, or both?

You can get one of those accordion pieces for $10-15 bucks.

after it warms up, occasionally cold starts as well, but not near as much.

Take the old one off, and stretch it to look for cracks. They are hard to find. Or, flex it yourself manually with the car idling.

Let's face it - "We're" not going to be happy til you replace it, so spend the $10-15 so we can put that idea to bed !

Driving fine on highway but stalling at lights, and hard starts when warm points to a faulty IACV. Give it a check for leaks, voltage reading, and connections. When my IACV/AAC solenoid failed my max had the same 2 issues.

If it is a faulty IACV send me a PM. I have 3 collecting dust along with a new gasket for it.

sweet, oem i'm assuming?? all tested and working? i will gladly pay for shipping if so, i know you j so please pm me, i did get a code for the iacv (p0505) and for some reason he still thinks it's a fuel pump. out of frustration i agreed with being as that the symptoms are somewhat similar. actually the one that's on there is under warranty, but both went bad in a few months. ( from advanced auto )

don't know, it's original though. i figured i got a code for the iacv and can't clear it so more than likely it's that? what will it do if it's not working right? i'll still take you up on the offer for that iacv man, the first one was dead out of the box, now this one's throwing a code.

I had a stumbling issue with my '99 and it ended up being the crankshaft position sensor. Was *highly* intermittent until the sensor failed and then the car wouldn't start. No sending unit on that sensor so no DTC.

I'm not sure you have the same issue, but I spent several weeks hunting it down until I had to leave on extended business and just had the car towed. I have my fun little story in that thread.

I wish you luck! The car is worth fixing I think

Verified.

As a preventative/rule-it-out measure, I'd at least check it's adjustment. The procedure is in the FSM. It's not a big deal.

Starts on page EC-94.
