Fuel issues? Car bogging!

Hi guys,

I am having a problem to which i am searching for a solution. I started up my car last week and it tok forever to start, when it did however it started off as if it was grumbling. It grumbled for a bit and i gave it some gas, after a couple seconds of keeping it at aroun 3500rpm, the car smoothed out. it happened again this morning. Another issue that may be related is that i cannot rev cleanly and swiflty from idle. For instance, you know the old "youngster driver" vibe revving, i can't do it. The moment i try that the car bogs and tries to stall, recovering only when i either come off the throttle for a while or give it a steady rev.

Can any of u guys shed light on the topic?

My theories:-
Fuel pressure issues
  1. Fuel pressure issues
  2. Vacuum leak (somewhere)
  3. Clogged Injectors???
  4. Throttle position switch.

All answers will be appreciated.
Thanks.

You may have a fuel-pressure problem first thing Id do is have a good look for leaks old fuel hose cracks with the engine at idle check the whole fuel system from cold to hot

No. There are no trouble codes in the system.
