96 probe 2.0 hard starting

i have a 96 2.0 thats starts hard some times. It doesent seem to matter if car is warm or cold. Some times it takes a few seconds to turn over, and it kinda stumbles to get started, but it always starts. Other times it pops right off and has no problems at all. It also has a low end bog? no idea whay but it has a 1 second delay from when i hit the gas till it stars to rev up. please help:banghead:

It may be a fuel problem like a bad fuel pump check valve a partial clog fuel filter a vacuum leak check them out

As said, check fuel delivery, and also make sure she's firing on all cylinders.

Pull the codes and see what's showing, and let us know.
