Accelerator miss on load

Bit of a splutter after a full stop. then can drive around all week and then the car will miss a bit on the freeway when on a slight incline. and sometimes up the steep hill near home if i put my foot down. Already changed plugs, leads, new coils.

SOURCE: Poor acceleration with A340H A/T on hills and onramps

1992 4 runner 4 x 4, I think it is already passed 150,000 miles.the pistons and rings are lose and are leaking, the pressure probably low, try to use some oil treatment, I used Market America special oil treatment and got a very good result. you can set to 19 degrees and add some of those treatment see the result, this is cheapest way, just try it, because I can not test drive your car and check the engine pressure.
Please be sure go to MarketAmerica.com and check it first.

probably an accelerator pump jets blocked or failing to work properly
a carby overhaul may be in order

When I speed up to pass on freeway; 2x when I sped up from a red light, my titan revved but barley accelerated; engine not missing;trani not slipping when driving; no noises any suggestions?


Automatic I presume? While you claim the transmission is not slipping, the symptoms seem to point in that direction. The "punch" it, increases the load on the transmission. This behavior also points to drive line (transmission problems. It may be too late, but professional service may save the transmission.

Hi I have a 2002 Corolla with an apexi, when driving it can start to splutter a bit and I have to put my accelerator down fully just to maintain the revs, then as the car slows I have to change down a gear...


Most common problem is the IAC(Idle Air Control) valve.But if you say some times work I will suspect the throttle is clogged. Remove the Air hose,apply full throttle and hold, spray carburetor cleaner on clot using thin long nose player clean inside wall and throttle. don't spray directly inside because the carb cleaner is to aggressive for some of the gasket.
Good Luck

1999 v6 firebird misfires on #6 cyl when under load, plug was fuel fouled last time I had it replaced, but keeps missing only when under load. no other problems.


if you've changed the spark plug and no difference, then it's time to swap the coil with another cyl. coil and see if the miss goes to the other cylinder, if it does'nt follow to other cylinder, then I would replace that injector !

The power drive light is on my 2001 honda passport and i don't know what it means


it means you pressed the power drive button. it should be by your shifter knobb or on your shifter knobb itself. you should turn it off asap because in the freeway, it makes the transmission downshift to create more power for acceleration. in other words, it lets you accelerate faster on the freeway, just a little bit, but puts more stress on your engine if you dont turn it off after it downshifts. hope this helps, and goodluck.

The engine seems to be making a sputtering noise


Amelia, we just bought one off a lease 5 weeks ago (purchased from a dealer). We are having the same symptoms, suddenly, as you describe.

Took it back to the dealership. After a bit of drama, they agreed to foot the repair bill ($1000). It was a broken distributer cap and wiring which should have been replaced before it was resold to us. What a pain.

2003 Jetta 1.8T looses power while driving


Easy DIY is to change all fuel, air, and oil filters, do full tune-up, and change ignition cables, too. See if problem goes away. Take a look at coil, too, those cars have a known coil issue and it needs replacement every 25,000 miles
