rodeo: dies..air flow..Air cleaner is clean, fuel pump only 18 months

Customer Question

My rodeo will idle but when I put my foot on the excelorator dies. I got a 2nd hand air flow metre sensor and it made a bit of difference but it is still coughing and backfiring and its like there isn't enough fuel getting in. Air cleaner is clean, fuel pump only 18 months old. Any suggestions
Motor TF 2.6L 4ZE1 o any other cars have the same air flow metre?

Hello: What you are experiencing is low fuel pressure,Even though you changed the fuel pump about 18 months ago,It may have began to fail,Keep in mind bad fuels,dirt in the fuels or even a badly built fuel pump. If the fuel filter is clean and free of restriction (take a look at this first)Then you will have to replace the fuel pump. Thank-you Please let me know if I can be of any other assistance for you.
