I have a 1993 Subaru Legacy wagon. I think it's a 1600 engine. It has started stumbling under light acceleration. Press the gas a little bit, it will buck and misfire. Pump the pedal a couple times, then step on it and it takes off, fully firing and acceleratiing with lots of power (well, for this car anyway). It does it more before it fully warms up. What's going on?
Thanks,
T

What mileage? Maint records, like timing belt, tune up, fuel filter? Start with the basics and if you can do a fuel pressure test when it's the worst then post back with some info so we can help you determine the problem. Transman
