    is this when the car is idling? I assume so. Have you tried giving it some throttle right after you push the clutch in? Id say give it a couple good pumps. Thats weird though ive never heard of that.

    It has 124k. Used to be moded up before I had it and the guy put it back to stock besides air intake. Do you think it could the timing belt where it's around those miles and loses power?

    check the mass air flow meter & o2 sensor dont get new ones with out testing. that is a odd prob just puting in new parts will cast way too much. i have never seen this prb i am a auto tec. would have to look more up on that but you would be just as good at that as me. i will tell you more if i find it sorry i was not more help.

    The timing belt should be replaced at 110k miles, but timing belt failure would cause the engine to not run, and would probably trash the valves in the process.



    Did this problem recently start? If so, what happened before it started? OR, did you buy the car in this condition? I think it's likely that something is messed up or not properly installed from the previous owner. Have you performed a compression or leak down test on the engine since you bought it?
