If your pressure is up now it was the regulator, thats why it started hard. If that happens, you can turn key for a few seconds to cycle pump before starting. The old reg. was leaking off pressure so you didnt have instant pressure at the injectors.
Is there any signs of dirt in regulator ?
what do you mean by learch ? hesitation ?
hesitation can be MAF, MAF is expensive so dont replace anything your not getting code for.
Did you get your breaks bled ?
I like to know how people make out. And what was the cure.
I couldn't find any signs of dirt but the new regulator certainly did the trick. The pressure gauge stays right up there after shut down.
"Lurched" is when you quickly hit the gas and release. "Lunge forward" like you want to pop a wheelie.
It'* ironic that you mention the MAF. I registered the car today and logged about 70 miles. The SES light came on for several miles but eventually turned off. The codes I pulled were 34, 39 and 63. MAF, EGR and something else. The strange thing is that I have not been able to duplicate the poor idle since the SES light turned off.
As far as the brakes are concerned, yes and no is the answer. I'll post a full report on todays activities soon. In a nutshell, they work OK but I had to pull a fuse to make it that way.
