Ok I have a 1997 Chevy 1500 Cheyenne and it runs perfect unless you put it to the floor or just try to acelerate kind of fast and it will sputter and not want to move like it is exposed to and if I out it...

You are on the right track- start with the routine maintenance items first. If your air filter is really dirty I'm guessing you dont keep up with the longer term stuff, and you may have bad plugs. Be sure the new ones have the proper gap.

OK I'm gonna try and explain the best I can. my 1992 camaro rs 3.1 is cutting out real bad. it will start right up but when I hit the gas it bogs down. it idles really high. I've changed t

It sounds like a fuel delivery issue, you may have a bad injector. this would cause too much fuel going into engine and cause the lack of power. First try adding fuel injector cleaner to your gas and get the highest octane at the pump, if that doesnt work pull the plugs and look for one that is wet or has higher carbon build up.

My 2000 Ford Ranger suddenly started idling really rough (like it wants to stall) and also shakes really bad at 40 mph. It also shakes the truck while driving, but not as bad as at idle or 40mph. No e

First question is - is the check engine light on ?
If so you need to start with the trouble codes in the computer.
Could be a faulty injector or coil among other things.
You should have a codes for which cylinder is not firing and other possible problems.

My car doesnt accelerate properly as it hits 20mph and holds back for 10 to 15 seconds cleaned sensors(idle,mass or maff sensor and sensors around) and changed wire set and spark plugs and fuel filter

run it without the air filter and see if it makes a difference. does it shake? missfire? any DTC's(diagnostic trouble codes), Check engine light on? Does it do the same thing when in park and pressing on the gas gently? Does it bog down? It can be as simple as the air filter. The other thing that comes to mind is the intake manifold gasket. Try spraying some starter fluid around the intake manifold(car on) and see if the car stalls or shakes.(do this step with engine started from cold for your safety)

Runs rough and engine shakes constantly

you dont tell me about first thing in the morning after the engine cooled /is it putting out blue smoke does it start easy /i came across a v6 in the past that done the same thing and even the old vw engine was known to do it ,broke the crankshaft,this would not allow the engine to fire right/advancing /retarting the timing.take all fuel filters out and put fuel direct to the engine and let it breath without air filter and see what happens, to what you tell me this lady is not getting enough fuel.but remember alwaws start at the start this whole problem could be a bad spark plug line .why not take a look under the hood after dark if everything is ok then you know to look further.come back to me on this one .adrian;;;;
