4 Banger Woes ~ Help Requested

Help....

I got a problem with a 4 banger. Not a Ford though, well close it is a Mazda.

We have been having severe Sub-Zero Temps here in MN. Today was the only day I've had problems getting this car started.

After about 8 hours of various different methods a Ford Powerstroke came along & between his duel batteries & my persistence we managed to get it jumped off.

I let the car idle awhile to get all fluids & the interior warmed up to a comfortable level & took her out on the road to get tranny fluid flowing & warmed up.

This is were the car has a problem.....

It is hesitent to get up & go. Once I have her getting up & going she is going.
It keeps bucking like it is running out of gas, but then I let off the throttle & it will level out. I get on the trottle again & it's like I'm riding a mechanical bull.
Once I have her up to highway speeds it seems to run fine.

Could this possibly be ice blockage in my fuel lines due to the cold sub-zero weather?
What else can be wrong? Come one guys & gals, give me something to look for, please!

OK, disregard this thread. I found the problem. It was caused by idiot (me) malfunction while under the hood. Now I gotta do some searching to find the parts I need.

Thanks for looking though!!
