Check your engine oil level when on the flat then check the engine breather because it seems that your breather is throwing oil from the engine into the intake system. hope this fixes your problem.

Enigine shakes a lot on strait always when I go up hill it doesn't what could the problem be

First thing, any time you get bogging down, change the fuel filter. That's the cheapest fix you can do. Beyond that, add gas to the tank and see if it changes the prob. Fill it up. If there's junk in the fuel tank, it might be clogging the line as the gas lowers on a flat stretch. There used to be a bad practical joke done with a ping pong ball in a car gas tank back in the day and it caused probs exactly like you said. I'm a classic car type. I know nothing about the modern computer junk so good luck!

My '02 sonata has about 88,000 miles and I bought it used. Lately, when I climb hills or just driving on a flat surface the RPMs will stutter. Today it stalled out while I was driving, I restarted it and...

Simple things first.

Try replacing the spark plug wires. That could cause the loss of power.

A lot of used car dealers just change the oil when selling a used car. If you brought it from a private party I doubt if they kept it up.I would recommend a complete tune-up if one wasn't done.

Change: Oil, oil filter, spark plugs, distributer cap, rotor (cap), fuel filter, and air filter.

These are all simple things that cause common problems. If you don't like to get all greasy Walmart will do your oil & filter for $25. The other parts aree not hard to learn to replace with a minimum of tools.

When you pull the plugs, check them. They should be dry--not oily or rusty. Spark plugs indicate the condition of your motor, and these two conditions indicate serious problems.

Always remember that if you have a mechanic do any work for you to ask for the OLD part.
CALL AROUND for labor prices if you don't have an established mechanic.If you do it yourself call around to compare prices for parts.

You should do a tune-up once a year. Your motor will last a much longer time, run better, and get better gas mileage.

86, 1.6 liter, VW Golf, gas engine, 55KW, German Spec Car, Car mileage went from 24 to 5 MPG, I changed oil, oil filter, air filter, filled the tires to proper air pressure, changed the spark plugs and...

Check you're catalytic converter, Dont know how fast 40-60 KPH is but if it is near 40 miles per hour and has no power up hill that would be the first thing I would check. second would be Fuel pump... Hope this helps

I have a 92 manusl single cab chevy s10. I was going to work the other day and saw my oil pressure had dropped a lot. by the time I got to work which is not even a mile away I had no oil.

First mistake was not stopping and checking it. But, can't do anything about that now. Re-fill the oil to the proper level and once started, look everything over for leaks. If you lost most of the engine oil, chances are it won't be too difficult to find the problem unless you have a small leak and just haven't done any weekly routine checks to maintain proper fluid levels. (bet you will now!!)
Chevy engines are pretty tough...hopefully you haven't done any serious damage.
good luck

Sluggish and no pwer up a hill. Almost backfiring in second gear.

Yea probably the bad gas clogged the filter or clogged an already dirty fuel filter. Try changing it. If not I would say try using a lower gear by turning off the overdrive.

My 87 4x4 suburban is not running good . i haven't ran it in a few months. i have ben driving it for about 4 days now. today it started running crappy. when i give it gas in park it sounds good but when it...

It's an old question but I answer it in case you still have the truck.
The oil leak is probably the rear main seal and on 86 and up small block Chevy's it's a one piece seal and you'll need to pull the engine. That''s why some garages charge so much to fix it. You could try a bottle of stop leak but I doubt it would work on a bad leak. If you've checked the fuel filter and the gas isn't too stale to were it's gummed up the fuel system you will have to check the igniton system and buy a vacuum gauge to test for late ignition timing or a plugged catalytic converter.If there is a big difference between driving in drive vs reverse then you should also check the transmission, transfercase and hubs.

Oily air filter

check all your breather hoses are not blocked or kinked and that the engine is not overfilled as see so many cars with them overfilled and can cause further damage.
