Engine cuts out on acceleration

Engine cuts out when accelerating quickly. Have already replaced coil pack, spark plug wires, spark plugs and fuel filter. Could it be the fuel pump?

depending on mileage, but possible tune-up could fix it. if already done then check ignition coil pack and ignition wires also spark plugs, check vacuum hoses for leaks or porous, last injectors clogged - use some techron fuel injector cleaner (wal-mart has them). Also get the throttle body and iac valve cleaned by throttle cleaner . Also this other possibilities are to be checked and confirmed.:---- Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following:

1.Defective spark plugs
2.Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4.False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
8. EGR valve that is leaking.
9. Oxygen sensors.
10. Throttle position sensor.
11. Manifold absolute pressure sensor
12.Mass Airflow Sensor
13.Idle air control valve

Coil pack should in the front top of motor, with engine running remove one spark plug wire at a time from coil pack ( careful not to get shock ) they should all have spark, if one don't replace coil pack.

BAD spark! check plugs wires and coil packs. the wires are a real pain to replace because of the location of the coil packs between the intake manifold and firewall.

your problem is not wire location, it sounds like bad wire or wires, also those engine are pron to bad coils,but i think you should start with wires,also check fuel filter or just replace if you can check fuel preasure.hope this helps.

95 aspire sputters and back fires when you try to accelerate , changed fuel filter, fuel pressure is fine, new mass airflow sensor


Check spark in each cylinder. You may have a bad plugwire or coil pack. Make sure fuel is spraying from every injector.
You can remove one plug at a time, plug it back into the plug wire and lay it on top of engine block, have someone else turn motor over and you can view plug to see if it is sparking. Do this to each plug. If you have one or two plugs not firing, you may have bad coil pack.

2004 Dodge Caravan Engine Codes are 300 and 302


Which codes are you getting? Did you change the wires? They tend to fail quickly. Also check to make sure you are getting a good strong constant spark to all plugs. If not, coil pack or module may be faulty. Also check your fuel pressure

The ac thrns off and on by its self


1 Do you have an AUTO setting on your AC to Set Temperature? or 2 Do you notice this on/ off when accelerating quickly? If 1 the AC will turn and off by itself to maintain Temperature Setting. 2 Will cut power to AC when accelerating to lower gas consumption>

sounds like the coil pack is failing or you could just have water in your fuel.... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it sucks up water) and add them to your tank when you fill up.... if that doesn't fix it it is likely the coil pack
