No power on exceleration smells like gas hs a hard time pulling hills 94 saturn sohc 1.9


Start by replacing the air filter and checking the operation of the fuel pressure regulator. Have the stored codes read out of your ECU, either by an auto parts store or a local mechanic, in order to ascertain a starting point for diagnosis.

Volvo 960 wagon stall


if it is lacking power and stalls at stops, it may be a bad fuel filter. when car is off, the dirt inside the filter drops to the bottom. but as soon as its started it rises up. that is what usually causes a car to stall. when stopped. if the car bogs down on hills and it was fine before, then its the fuel filter. there are many things to make a car stall at stops, but check the fuel filter first then go from there if problem still exists. and check all vacuum lines in engine compartment. there may be a leak. clean throttle body out if needed. good-day! check and or replace the Idle air control. (IAC) it may be sticking.

92 geo tracker starts fine then during idle it sputters out unless I pump the gas. If I run it to 3000 rpm it seems ok, but anything under it dies. Changed fuel filter. Fuel pump hums so don't think


what engine, 16valves, or 8valves. silver top or black?
MPI or TBI engine. they sold both and are vastly different.
hums dont mean a thing, only that the pump can make noise.
pressure rules (and flow #1)
ive personally fixed every fail possible on these, stalls.
owned many and fixed more. (own 3 and restored them to 100% )
unfortunately this older car is not OBD2 level ECU/PCM.
so no scan tools work.
Ever give it a tune up.? at the 60k mile interval.? repeats?
1: spare parts, both filters. and timing belt?
2: EGR ,main loves to stick open if it does engine will stall.
starts fine , yes
does engine get to 180F coolant temp and hold? if not fix that first.
is engine idle at 800RPM, hot? y/n? if yes, EGR is not stuck open.
if lower, EGR stuck. or other probs.
not knowing which engine makes answers hard, and only generic.
not knowing the transmission option too, makes it hard. 3,4,5speed.?
the 3sp can have vacuum leaks that can be real bad for the 16v engine, see? see how the work together? or not?
3: bad TPS.
stalling happens for 2 reasons (not counting bad engine)
the ECU (engine EFI brain, puter. etc) does all it can to stop stalls
it has 2 slaves to do that. one is ISC other is spark timing.
when stalls happens this is a warning that the ISC is bad,
or is overloaded.
A: MISFIRE. Gross.( 50 reasons, but can be to rich or just needs a tuneup.)
B: bogging . Gross (too lean, or called fuel starvation)
my questions.
does hot idle run at 800 all the time. RPM.
does engine have full power on hills.
does engine stall coming up to traffic stops (EGR malf)
does the lost power. recover, with just holding throttle down? only?
can you tell the difference from bog and misfire.
bog is lack of power, its smooth
misfire is violent, it shacks the motor. does it?
when you pump the throttle, this engages ENRICH mode
in the ECU , and overrides lean,.
my guess, (cant drive it and if could , i can tell whats going on)
but based on your inputs, it say its lean.
if power is low on hills, i then.
grab my fuel pressure gauge. $20
i do this at every fuel filter change, since im THERE already
it has a test port, a 6mm plug.
i take this hose and check for 30psi,
see why guess here.
34 to 36PSI, key on, 3 times, (both engines, not stated, so..)
see the tool here,for next to nothing. costs.
http://www.fixkick.com/INJECTORS/pump.html

the EFI totally can no work at 20 PSI or hums.
it must be at leas 34psi.
below 28 the injectors fail. (read injector spec, and see that)
if the pressure is good there is hope.

post engine type, 4 injectors or 1.
and can go way deeper and more accurate.

bogging is here

My SUV is choking and it hesitates


which engine? 2L I4 or 2.5L V6?
chocking, it bogs full time.
total loss of power at all times? any speed, any hill, any gear.
is this a A/T or M/T car, the A/T can slip. easy
does the engine lack power, or does the tranny slip.
slipping is easy to discover, the RPM of the engine rise fast
but you go now where fast.
bogging can happen in many modes. (all or just 1: pick one)
all permutations
1: hot engine?
2: cold or both.?
3: wont race even in neutral, but idles ok. at 800 rpm.?
4: only with a fast right foot,called tip in throttle. but recovers.!
5: lost power at all driving loads, and worse on hills.?
6: all the above.?
in a real shop, i drive it and in a few minutes all the above is seen and vastly more, that is why online help is so bad, (me too)
no inputs. = wild guessing.....
heck i even notice things like?
dash volt meter dropping. below 14v at any time running.
overheating
CEL glowing or worse flashing (USA feature , OP never said)
old noises and vibration.
clutch slipping or A/T slipping.
Scan tool connected, and seeing pending codes, or any odd PID behaviors.
bad idle speed, idle speeds not controlled correctly.
and 100 more things, Ill stop here, it's a complex machine.

My Nissan sentra fn15 with a ga15 engine, the rev counter does not change with rpm increase, drive car for 10 mins it slowly goes to 5-600 rpm, it also stalls sometimes, are they related


WHAT YEAR? CAR.
the engine tachometer reads what.
that whole post is a contradiction.
ahh, you mean the engine does not accelerate, or the engine bogs.
600 RPM is why below, 800 normal (most cars)
the engine stalls, well sure it will as low idle speed will surely do.
so the real post is my engine stalls.
and if i try WOT ,it will go above 600 rpm in or out of gear?
wot means wide open throttle.
can the engine race to 3000RPM in PARK (or neutral)
if engine power is ok, full WOT power up a hill and is only and idle problem say some. and we work bad idle.

the top reason for stalls (besides #1 never ever doing the 60k mile service,repeats at every 60k)_
is a stuck open EGR (part of same service to do that but Ill add that)
or stuck closed ISC (electric IAC)

2002 jeep Cherokee 2.5crd engine cuts after removing foot from accelerator pedal . no warning lights come on. let the vehicle stand for 10 minutes then it starts up again. can it be injectors or ignition...


check all fuses.
cuts out hot or cold engine.????????
if it wont start and car gets 60k tuneup (?)
then connect scan tool and crank for 5 seconds.
see if you get scan DTC errors , cranking (release key) see em?
stalls are caused by over 50 reasons. guessing is impossible or very expensive.
enter: Diagnosis,
you take measurements, and find the failure path then work that path like bird dog.
2.5L 4cyl engine. I just sold min last week. with 5sp M/T
cuts out, does that mean the engine stalls?
we need to know what it really does.
1: stalls (engine rpm drops to 0 RPM)
2: engine rpm drops to 300rpm and shakes.
3: power loss from engine?
4: only stalls at stop signs...?
5: bogs all them time, same as #3
6: engine misfires (shake)
7: bogs only on throttle TIP-IN then recovers.
8: bogs only on hills.

i wait.
when dead, is spark lost?

Car stalls after warm on hot day after a few stops. will stall when stopping at intersections, and when taking foot off the gas going down hills.


The idling setting in the car is not set correctly or the idling is LOW due to fault in the setting.
You will need to check if the throttle position is correct and the idle setting WITH THE CLUTCH PRESSED must be of the CORRECT IDLING RPM. If not reset the position after cleaning the system.
