So yesterday, I went to go to the corner store in the morning and pulling out of my driveway and trying to move it hesitated and stalled out on me trying to take off..
Ran great past 1800 rpm.

I brought it home and parked it, opened the hood and the hold down bolt to my distributor had backed out just enough and my distributor moved freely.

Went to the parts store and grabbed a distributor wrench and a timing light, put new plugs in (old plugs, none were gapped right, none even had the same gap) with proper .052 gap, readjusted my timing advance (spout out and all that), reset the ecm, and adjusted a couple little things under the hood, and I replaced the fuel filter day before yesterday.
So far, so good. I took it out and stomped it on dry pavement from a dead stop and it spun em half way thru 1st, and I got probably the most aggressive 2nd gear shift I've gotten out of this car, barked the tires and kicked the tail out a tad. Very happy so far! Now just a few more odds and ends and I should be able to stop throwing parts at it for a few weeks

Quick question, as I was messing under the hood earlier checking sensor readings, I noticed a sound coming from around my fuel pressure regulator when my girl would turn the key to the on position, it sounds kinda like air being pushed out. Is that a normal sound around that component or is it something to really investigate? I didn't notice any fuel leaking anywhere.
