ok not sure what this is so i thought i'd ask

When i give it about 1/2 throttle it tends to start to miss and bog but only in 2nd and 3rd

thinking it might be a foul plug or possibly my fuel pump

could also be a fuel filter. Cheap and easy to replace so i'd try that first. plus even if it doesn't solve the problem it probably needs replacing anyway.

sounds odd that its only at 1/2 throttle tho... if you floor it, is it okay? if it is I could be a worn TPS
