Car stalls when accelerating in low gears

When i am accelerating in 2nd or 3rd and sometimes 4th gear, at times the car will stall. i push the clutch pedal back down and basically pop-the-clutch to start the car again. the problem is getting worse every time i drive the car. it started just doing it every now and then, but now it is constant.

I had similar issues on mine. I bought it from the Good Will for less than $1000. :)
It's been totaled i believe at least twice.
Anyways, replace the fuel filter. It's about the size of an oil filter and is very easy to replace.
Also, replace the spark plugs with some good titanium type plugs. They're like $4 from Wal Mart.
Next, put some fuel injector cleaner every other tank of gas or so. This will definitely help.
Good Luck

The problem is most likely your fule pump or possibly a clogged injector. if it's the fuel pump, then you'll have to drop the tank and replace it, but if it's the injectors, which is less likely unless it has not been driven for a year or so, then you'll have to go to either a dealership or a mechanic and have them pressure clean the injectors. most manufacturers would have you do this every 60,000 miles or longer, but it really depends on the amount of driving you do and the quality of gas you use.

Wife was driving truck up a hill when it suddenly stalled out. she finally got the truck back down the hill. Now it will not idle properly, and stalls out if put into gear( R or 1st). Is this a carburator...


Depending on youre mechanical ability you can spend 20 bucks for a rebuild kit on your carburator.

There tends to be many different potential issues with youre description of the problem. My best advice for you at this time, would be get the carburator re-built and check youre fuel pump/fuel filter.

But you can always go to youre local shop and get a free estimate.

Clutch is slipping on my 1995 BMW 318ti


to be fully honest if its doing this its wont be nothing to do the the fluid, the clutch plate will be sticking on the shaft untill you get it upto a higher speed,, that means you will need a complete clutch fitted, because as its slipping it is burning the clutch plate away,, you have new clutch fitted and car will be great. . playing away with things only makes matters worse and time comsuming ..

Try changing your fuel filter, like on all fuel injection and electronic ignition problems the shade tree has to use the process of elimination. This is one of the cheapest.

'99 wrangler has trouble shifting to 2nd gear - 4th gear occasionally slips to neutral


If you can see where the shifter goes through the floorboard, make sure the shifter is not hitting the floor.
There could be interfierence under the car also.
