Hi Robert,

my guess is that you do not get enough fuel to sustain more than 3000 rpms. The accumulator is there to help to keep the pressure up, but I wonder if your fuel pumps make enough pressure to sustain higher rpms.

When I replaced the fuel pumps on my 87, I routed the fuel hose wrongly with a kink in the hose and had exactly the result you describe.

Those are the surprises of buying 14 year old cars, my money is on the fuel pumps.

Good luck
