Digital meters have a tendency to smooth things out I always try to keep an old simpson on hand because analog cannot be replaced sometimes

I couldn't notice a definitive dead spot on the digital meter, but I DID notice that I could consistently get the engine to start doing the stumble parked under no load if I veeeery carefully held the accelerator at just the right spot. Coincidentally, the same spot I usually cruise at. I'm thinking you've nailed it, Deerhurst, and my TPS has a worn out spot. I'll report back once I've had a chance to install the new one.

No dead spot, but the wide open throttle position sensor wasn't working so I went ahead and replaced the TPS anyway. Haven't had a chance to test it under cruise yet but it does seem that the throttle response is a bit smoother. Will report back after some highway cruising today.

Started out fine but stumble returned on the highway. It is still much more muted than before, but I’m back to square one.

On a hunch I removed and thoroughly cleaned the Mass Airflow Sensor. The stumble is just barely noticeable now. Still hunting down the final cause, but it's looking like whatever it is was being worsened by a bunch of other stuff I've been tweaking.

So, update. The stumble hasn't gone away. In fact, it's pretty noticable now.


The fuel pump, all injectors, pressure regulator, fuel filter, fuel lines, air filter, all six spark plugs, spark plug wire, ignition coil, distributor, throttle position sensor, and the entire exhaust system have all been replaced with new components. The only things that are still stock (and tested working supposedly) are the MAF and coolant temperature sensors.


Since there is sometimes a noticable clunk from the rear end when taking off in 1st gear I'm wondering if maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree and should be looking for something worn out in the drivetrain. It has a new carrier bearing and the driveshat doesn't seem to have any play in it. Any thoughts along those lines?

dumb question but did you reset the ECU after those sensor changes? it'll still be mad with the new ones if you don't.

By which you mean disconnect the battery for a few minutes? No, I suppose I didn't. I feel like the stumble itself is mechanical at this point, but I'll give that a shot and see what happens.
