While driving pressing the gas pedal down car loses complete power and does not accelerate pressing the gas pedal lightly will gain some speed only to a certain point then pressing any harder car will just...


An easy thing to check first is your air filter. If it is clogged, it can cause that problem. I speak from experience. Had the exact same thing happen with an '85 Oldsmobile.

My car is loseing compression when you press on the gas pedal


That doesn't mean it's losing compression. It can only possibly lose compression from internal wear or sticky valves or stretched timing chain or catastrophic failure - it can't lose compression one moment, then regain compression the next moment except in cases of sticky valves or stretched timing chain.

I doubt you have any of these issues, unless your car is pretty badly worn. What's happening is your car has lost most of its POWER, not compression.

At any rate... if it's a modern car, get the computer's error codes with an OBD (if pre-1987) or OBDII (1997 and later) scan tool. If no codes or engine older than about 1987, suspect poor or old gasoline, fuel pressure or flow rate, clogged air filter, weak coil, plugged exhaust, various ignition-related issues, park brake set, accelerator linkage, serious mechanical problems (wheel bearings, etc). This isn't a question that warrants a quick "silver bullet" answer, there are TONS of things that might cause you to lose the ability to accelerate.

Nissan maxima has check engine light on and is losing acceleration on the road.


If this is a deisel then it's probably some sensor malfunction. It could be one of the sensors in the exhaust system or a simple electrical fault - I have been told it can happen if even just one brake-light bulb is broken

My 2003 chevy tahoe will not accelerate pass 30mph what could be the problem?


Your problem could be in the Transmission, but most likely it is caused by a sensor / electric part called an Accellerator-Pedal-Position-Sensor (APP-Sensor. If it is the APP Sensor, then you should be getting a signal in the information center saying "reduced power" or a Check-Engine Light.
