Start a new thread, and your car is not dying because of holes in the muffler, that wouldn't even make it run different.
I can't find out how to to do it, i can't find anything on the internet.Of course it could affect how long it takes to get it running, if its starving for fuel its gonna be problematic. I don't know the answer for the fuel pressure tester question though, never done it on a throttle body car before...
Can the Internet and buy a repair manual, or ALLDATA CD from Auto Zone for your car, http://www.alldata.com/. You'll have much better results.I can't find out how to to do it, i can't find anything on the internet.
I've been suspecting the fuel pump but never thought it would cause the car to be hard to start initially, i figured it would be an all the time thing... hot or cold starts.
i do have a repair manuel but it focuses more on the 94 - 96 that don't have TBI, all it has on my year about fuel pressure testing is what i already have tried where there wasn't enough free space to fit the fuel line in.Can the Internet and buy a repair manual, or ALLDATA CD from Auto Zone for your car, Automotive Repair, Auto Recalls, Automotive Software & TSB's - ALLDATA.

I'm not sure. The timing mark seems to be in the same place when i check it with the timing light, but when i set it at a good spot it seems to drive worse with every start up. Like one day i'll drive with no hesitation at take off, then the next time i start it theres hesitation and it gets worse with every start. and on top of that the car shifts gears at different points or the rpms go higher before it shifts.Base timing or PCM controlled timing? Base time won't change once you set it unless the timing chain is loose. But you would see that when you are setting the base timing. PCM controlled timing will always be changing due to many factors such as ambient temperature, engine temperatures, humidity, and other factors that the PCM reads through the various sensors.
