I am browsing archives but also could use some advice before getting into things. Here's my story. I'm sure my problem lies with something I did recently but I can't figure out what. The car was fine until one day it wouldn't start.

-checked spark at plugs: good.
-checked cas by spinning shaft: good, heard clicking.
-exchanged rebuilt afm for new one: no start.
-checked fuel pressure: BAD, 0 psi.
-replaced filter and pump: 0 psi.
-re-installed old pump: 0 psi.
-checked fusible links with ohm meter: all good.
-put more gas in: 30 psi :)
-started, runs, but hesitates. returned afm and bought junkyard afm, same results.

This leads me to where I am now. The car runs and the initial no-start problem is gone. It wasn't a real problem in the first place, my car was on a steep hill and the gas wasn't reaching the pump. Somehow through all of that I messed up something and now the car bogs. If I turn it off and start it up again it regains power. I have an in-line fuel pressure gauge and when the problem occurs my pressure is stable. Any ideas? Thanks. -Perry

Adequate test of what? Certainly not of the MAF.

Have you checked the ignition timing since you put the CAS back in?

I am getting about 24 psi at idle and about 35psi at full throttle. The fsm specifies 30/37, though it says "approximately". Does this sound like a problem?
