Driving out to the parents yesterday, having it ont he highway for about 40 mins over 3600 RPMs (it's a 3 speed auto), get off the highway, and when I go to speed up again, car bogs, then goes fine. At a stop light, accelerate, continues to bog. Holds around 2k RPM climbing a hill, sounds like it's not firing properly...backfires...dies.
Engine turns over, but won't actually start up. It was pissing rain and I don't think anything was leaking, it wasn't overheating, and I had at least 1/4 of a tank left. I'm used to FI, i know next to nothing about how carbs work.....but i understand there's "sort of" a fuel pump? Is this my likely cause?
It's abandoned on the side of the road since it's christmas and all but later today or tomorrow i'm going to go back to make sure my plugs and stuff are fine, but the fact that I can't even start it up and get a shitty idle going, makes me lean more towards fuel delivery?
