k... the tube coming from the air cleaner box to the bottem of the throttlebody/intake manifold got flooded with gas 2 days ago trying to start, the engine fired and ran for 10-20 secs about 5 times then wouldnt fire anymore at which time i noticed wetness around the clamps when i pull the aircleaner side of the tube i got drenched with gas... at which time i checked the fuel pressure regulator and it had gas in the vacume line part of it.. replaced it today (saturday here) and no more gas flowing into the intake.... but the car still wont stay running runs for 10-20 seconds then just shuts off, minimal to zero throttle response at all, just surges immedialty to 2k or so rpm runs for a bit and shuts off..... gonna go thru testing the fuel pressure again sunday mornin cos I really dont know whats left besides the fuel pump or the TPS and I dont think a bad TPS would do that right it just wouldnt run at all wouldnt it?
Im really runnin out of ideas... Trying to avoid having to take it to someone cos that gets rather pricey quick.. All i've been able to find documentation wise on the car is a haynes manual and we all know how helpful those can be its a really sweet lookin car, cosmetically cherry.. even the enigne sounds quiet and strong when it comes on.. just cant keep it running.. its really getting rather discouraging.
