    If you can't remember or don't know when your fuel filter was last changed, it's probably time for a new one. The limited flow allowed by an old fuel filter may be fine for the fuel demand at idle, but at higher RPMs, the fuel demand is too great, thus bogging down your engine.

    no check engine light nothen
    only thing i can think of is the idle air control vavle or the fast idle on the throttle body
    becase its a 92 engine and i had to get anouther intake mani but they gave me a 95 intake and it doesnt have the extra water port on it

    can you put a vacuum gauge on and see what is going on? I am starting to wonder if the valves are adjusted a little too tight or something of that nature
