I've inspected the hose, there are no issues with it. The check engine light isn't on, although the 24 code is in the system. I don't know if it's an old code.
What else can stop the throttle from working. Right now, there's no squealing. It starts, idles at 700rpm. If I throttle up to full throttle, it runs at about 850rpm. If I throttle down it will no longer idle and stalls.
At what specific point in the line would you check the pressure?
What should the pressure range be at idle?
Fuel pressure is 39 on my gauge. I noticed the engine will rev a little higher if unplug vacuum hoses.
What can I check next?
Checked the pressure while idling, then while attempting to accelerate, there was very little variance in fuel pressure.
To re-cap, The car lost power while driving on the highway. It wouldn't respond to the throttle. On the side of the road, I started it a couple of times. One time I was able to feather the throttle and it responded by acting normal. I revved the engine between 3-5k rpms for about 20 seconds. Once I let it idle, it stalled. I've haven't been able to get it to rev up since.
I'll check timing. If it jumped a tooth, how far retarded will it be?
Haven't had time to check the timing yet, stuck at work.
