SOURCE: Engine Making Noise when accelerating

Could be carbon build-up on the pistons, causing erratic flame travel in the combustion chamber... 'pinging'...... Decarbon the engine and use a high grade fuel for a few tanks.... also an octane booster can help

if i remember right if the battery light and check engine light is on, your alternators may be bad. your battery may just have enough to keep it running for a minute or so. you can take it out and get it tested at a auto parts store. or try charging your battery for awhile and see if it stays on longer. if this is completely wrong let me know

check your coil and see if you have fire.if you have fire then you need to check your fuel pressure. i have a mazda 2600i that did the same thing and it was the coil .did your truck back fire when you shout it off?. if it did iam pretty sure its your coil.note there is a module in side the dis very few people know about this but they are not notted for going bad good luck

SOURCE: 1999 Mazda Protege won't start.

Recheck that the spark plug firing order or in other words the spark plug wires are in the proper order after that checks out ok, then run dry gas in the car and check all vacuum hoses there may be a vacuum leak somewhere.

Nothing happens when I press the accelerator pedal on my 2004 2.5 Kia Sorento


There are many reasons why a car will not move when you step on the gas pedal and they vary from easily corrected to requiring a laborious repair. A lack of power often involves the fuel system in one way or another. It could be something as simple as an engaged emergency brake or as complicated as internal engine malfunctions.
A car that runs rough, is sluggish, or frequently stalls is dangerous. The first thing to do is ensure the emergency brake is disengaged. If the emergency brake has been eliminated as the problem, a mechanic is needed to diagnose the acceleration problem.
Common reasons for this to happen: Acceleration issues typically stem from one of the following conditions:
  • Emergency break is on or stuck: This is actually one of the most common reasons that a car will not move or seems to be experiencing poor acceleration. The brake may be on simply because the driver forgot to disengage it, or it may be stuck.
An emergency brake can become stuck if it is left on for a long period of time or if it was applied with more force than usual. In regions that use salt for de-icing, or when the emergency brake has gone without use for a long period of time, releasing the brake may require the assistance of a professional mechanic.
  • Engine management issues: Many sensors interact with the engine control module to add the correct amount of fuel based on the amount of air that is coming into the engine.
As the engine management system wears, you may notice poor idle quality, stalling, and poor fuel economy. A car may run for months with a malfunctioning sensor, but eventually the problem may progress to a stalling condition or a serious lack of power.
A Check Engine light will normally be observed as well.
  • Low fuel pressure: A fuel pump moves fuel from the fuel tank, through the fuel filter, and to the engine to be burned in the engine cylinders. If the fuel pump or filter begins to fail, lower than specified fuel pressure may cause various symptoms.
Symptoms of a failing fuel pump or clogged fuel filter may include sputtering, hesitation during acceleration, power loss when the car is under load, and finally an engine that will not start. Proper maintenance, including replacing the fuel filter as scheduled, will help prolong the service life of the fuel pump and maintain proper fuel pressure.
  • Gross intake manifold leak: While this is not a common occurrence, a manifold leak does happen. This will cause the manifold to draw additional air via the leak, putting too much air into the cylinders and decreasing the amount of gasoline that is delivered in relation to air.
The engine will run rough and sluggish under such conditions. As the situation gets worse, it may eventually cause the car to stall. A hissing sound or Check Engine light may be observed as well.
  • Malfunctioning electronic throttle control: Most late-model vehicles utilize an electronically controlled throttle to control airflow into the engine. This system relies on multiple electronic inputs, computers, and motors to control engine speed. If the system detects a malfunction, the computer will usually shut down the throttle opening as a precaution. In this case, multiple error codes will be logged, a Check Engine light may be displayed, and the vehicle may not exceed 35 to 40 mph.

Cuts off at 70mph when accelerating.


Best thing to do is go to an Auto Zone and have them scan your truck for any DTC codes. Auto Zone scan free of charge, there is just to many things that can cause the engine issues your running through such as detonation during acceleration due to timing issues to lack of fuel pressure. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your truck running 100%
