My engine has the Pulsation Damper connected at the fuel rail, not the FPR. I think that "jablackburn" is right and when I have a little time I'm going to look in the rear for the FPR for future reference.
I repaired my problem but I was traveling without a computer and could not answer sooner.
I thought that I had a bad FPR as my engine when warm would bog down and the RPM would drop to about 500 RPM when I came to a stop and idled for more than a minute or two yet run great at speed. Not good when you try to pull out into traffic!!
Earlier today I started looking at vacuum hoses and found that the vacuum hose that is attached to the front of the intake manifold close to the driver's side of the manifold was broken in two. I cut the clamp and piece of hose off that was still attached to the manifold and re-attached the remaining original vacuum hose. The difference was immediate. All bogging down and RPM drop was gone! I had to stop on two occasions today and I left the car idling for up to a half hour and absolutely no problem even in the heat of the day up at 8,000' with the AC on!
Does anyone know the component that the broken vacuum hose was attached to?
Thanks for your input,
