Hey Scotty mate

I own a 1996 Ford Probe - and I've been experiencing some issues when accelerating a bit harder while at low revs where the engine accelerating seems a bit stuttery (and the loud exhaust on the back makes the sounds very clear when it stutters a bit). Today however accelerating out of a roundabout in 2nd gear (with plenty of revs) for the first time it did stutter once which was pretty extreme considering going from all acceleration to none for a second really threw me around. another odd symptom occurred when sitting in neutral parked idling waiting for a car barge and the engine would just lose revs here and there, and sometimes stall. the car has a pod filter with perhaps a fairly dodgy hose on it, I was wondering if you think the air intake could be causing the issue for acceleration? would it be worth perhaps checking for any vacuum leaks?

pressure test the fuel pump first, weak ones do that. But if intake has a big enough air leak, it will do just that. Normally it will trip a code for running lean then though
