Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX

1 Answer

Hesitation When I am at a complete stop and then proceed, I can be giving it gas and it will bog down and it wont catch up with itself unless you punch the gas pedal. My car smells like it is running rich. To me, it is acting like it is not getting enough air or enough gas or to much of one. My check engine light is not on. PLEASE help.

Check fuel pressure, fuel filter or injectors clogged. Additionally, check air admission system sensors (MAF, IAC, MAP, etc). Confirm that you dont have vaccum leaks there.

Hope helps.

When stopped then go to give gas acts like it wants to cut off sometimes.


Could be a combination of a number of things causing this issue. Misfiring caused by faulty plugs or wires, a vacuum leak, the injectors need cleaning, higher octane gas should be used for a period of time, at least the next 2-3 fill ups, the throttle body needs to be inspected and thoroughly cleaned etc.

Car idles fine, but sputters, bogs and dies if gas pedal is pressed.


new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.

My 88 toyota camry wont accelerate when i step on the gas pedal


tests:

cruise at say 45mph ok?
if i accelerate , it bogs then catches up?
if i accelerate, it bogs and never catches up?
if i go WOT, wide open throttle it has full power up a hill after the bog?

these test , are the KEY tests.
this tells me what is wrong.
i hope the car is tuned up, if not , why no? the 60k mile done?

1997 Plymouth Voyager 3.3 dies at idle hesitates during acceleration


It should show up with a P code as it misfires. If it doesn't, check the engine temperature sensor and O2 sensor.

I have a 2005 automatic ponatic gram when check engine flashes and my trac light is onit wont accelerate even when i push the petal down then it will just catch and go alittle faster also when i come


I am assuming you have a Pontiac Grand Am.
You would need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes to proceed. The codes will point you in the direction of the problem but not tell you what to replace or repair.

The car was running fine, it hesitated once, then about a half a mile later it began to have no power wnd when I gave it gas it would bog down. Then it died and would not start. I have got it to start...


it sounds like your fuel pump may have gone out disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter or the fuel rail which ever is easier to get to, then try to start the car if fuel does not spray from the line you will know that it is the problem.
