Maf sensor may be out of whack or TPS

well i changed out the fuel filter and the problem seems to be worse now im thinkin the fuel pump is weak, i just changed the coil about 3 days ago, tps was done a couple weeks ago, havent done anything with the MAF yet ill look into that if my fuel pump idea doesnt work thanks alot guys

Similar prob. on my Samurai a year ago. Was worse when it got warm and was intermittent at first then all the time then no worky at all one day. It did turn out the pump was pooched likely due to the rust in the fuel tank. Did you notice any rusty discoloration of the fuel when you replaced your fuel filter? If so you should drop the tank and have a look. If there is rust a new tank and fuel pump is in order.

Pump! It is probably able to prime but not supply enough gas to the motor once it is running. Seems like the exact same series of events that lead to mine packing it in. Soon you will not even get it to start.

unplug the maf and see if it get better, there is a backup mode, the air intake tubes are notorius for cracking from the engine flex and they get old and brittle.

check easy shit first - leaky lines ,vacum leaks , intake hose leaks /cracks ect . then see if your cold start valve isnt shutting off = to much fuel after warm up ..

what are the Spark plugs saying ?= lean /rich/normal?

Hmmmm that's odd I never would have guessed the fuel pump. Glad we could all provide some input to help you get to the bottom of it. Was there any rust in the tank or was it just a tired pump?
