Hard to start, sluggish, does not have immediate power/response when pressing gas pedal.

Sometimesstarts immediatly when it has been sitting awhile other times starter fluid. does not have immediate power/response when pressing gas pedal. very sluggish.

have changed fuel filter twice (thinking bad gas), new air filter and spark plugs.

Is it throttle body module? is it injectors clogged?

Could be either of those. But being intermittent, it could also be a wire from your car's computer system.

Losuing over drive lack of power hard starting must hold pedal to the floor


Does it start better after sitting overnight? Is it missing at all? Check engine light? Hard starting could be fuel pump, also lack of power could be lack of fuel. If it starts better after sitting overnight, could be block catalytic converter. That would also explain lack of power. If you have to hold gas pedal half way down trying to get speed would explain why it is not going into overdrive. Hope this gives you some direction.

My 2003 monte carlo is slugglish taking off. the tac does up but does not want to shift. Lacks power and i know the gas milage is poor. Is it a plugged fuel filter or am i actually having transmiossion...


One way to check is when you are in neutral or in park, see if the tach is responsive when pressing the accelerator pedal or if the engine reacts immediately. If the engine is not as responsive, then you may have to check for loose vacuum hoses or loose wires or bad fuel filter. It may also be sensors such as the MAF that may have gone bad. Otherwise you may have issues with your transmission. The valves inside the transmission may be clogged with debris or you may have a bad velocity sensor or a bad solenoid which causes you to run sluggish or prevents you from changing gears. Check the condition of your transmission fluid. It may need replacing.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

You got a problem a sense on the accerlator .Or on the air intake senser.If it's not that I would put gas cleaner in the tank.That would be the cheaps thing to try. Buy your gas at walmart and in the insle that has the tech gas cleaner and buy it there ,it will install it has you pump.

1995 nissan pickup bogs down,feels sluggish


if the car starts then there shouldn't be anything wrong with your fuel pump. fuel pumps either work or they don't. it sounds like you may be having a problem with your mass air flow sensor you can try cleaning it with an approved aerosol spray or it may need to be replaced. hope this helps.
