Question about 1991 Mercury Capri

1 Answer

Vehicle bogs down on acceleration

When driving my vehicle it seems like it's only running on 2 cylnders. I thought that replacing the spark plugs would solve the problem, but it didn't. It doesn't seem like it's starving for fuel because when in park I rev the enginge and it seems to be fine. It has been over 3 years since it's last tune up when I purchased the car and it is only driven in the summer. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.

2001 Malibu. Why does the engine bog down when the accelerator is depressed?


I would replace the fuel filter, clean the mass air flow sensor and then scan the computer for codes. You may have a bad throttle position sensor.

Cuts out while driving


which engine option??????????????????????
sensor 2 is not it. sensor 2 is only a CAT test.
Sensor 1 runs fueling at idle and light flat cruise.
the CUTS out, dont tell me anything.
is the engine stalling?
ever tune it up and not buy the most expensive parts in EFI. map, and IAC?

Cuts out>
do you mean it hesitates and then catches up?
does the engine stall and die?
does the wide open throttle work up hills with full power?
cuts out.
if it is only short time hesitations and then wakes up
that is tuneup time, spark plugs, new, spark wires,
read the operators guide, for 60,000 mile tuneups. filters /spark parts.
if it is tuned up, and only hesitatates
try a new TPS.
if it is a deep long lasting full bog.
then the , fuel pressure is low, check that, the guage costs $20
make sure fuel pressure is at spec, first for BOGS.
the EFI system can not run right with low fuel pressure.

all 0xygen sensors are off line, accelerating so its not that
only the front sensors set fuel rates and never accelerating.
the ECU shuts them down then
and uses the map , air temp to calculate fuel rates.
but if fuel pressure is low, it gets all that wrong.
after all , it dont know its low, and can not adjust for that
and most injectors are useless below 28psi.

Fuel filter, plugged exhaust (even though you replaced the Cat), low compression, low fuel pressure, valve timing, MAP Sensor? Seems like it's temperature related if you can go 15-20 to start with then only 3 after that...

89 jeep cherokee 4.0 it bogs down and will accelerate in drive


Make sure that the timing is correct and that the spark from the coil is healthy. Problem can also be with the overdrive in the converter. If it's stuck on it can do that too.
