My car seems to be running really rich, if i rev it up past 3500 rpm it will let two explosions out the exhaust, but never reving up, it also seems to have a lack of power and i think it is due to this, its always bogging out, ne ideas? TPS? AFM? ECU? something stuck on? please help

Definitely check the AFM. Also, temp. sensor and cold start injector could cause this problem. Or like 50 other things. I had a similar problem fixed by fixing a leaky intake pipe, but my car still runs a bit rich (lotso power now tho)

i know this sounds a little stupid and im not trying to be a smart ass about it but did you mess with the plug wires any if so you may have crossed a couple of wires
dont mean to sound any way bad it could just be a possibility

there was a electrical melt down on the wiring harness with the air flow meter when i bought it, i replaced most of it, it runs alot better but it still runs a bit rich, it has over 300 thousand k's on the engine so im thinking it's a sensor

The distributor is held in by one 12mm bolt. You should use a timming light to get it set correctly. Loosen that bolt and you will be able to move the distributor. If you want to move it a little wihtout a lite, mark where the washer sits before you move it so you can put it back.


Good Luck.
