I had the same problem with my Audi A4 1.8T 2001/2 Model, I had it checked by a dealer and the diagnostics revealed a SPEED SENSOR had to be replaced. Now under heavy acceleration, it rocks.

Ght comes on when passing gear is kicked in and starts losing power but when moter is turnd off and cranked up the light is out till the passing gear is kicked in again


what kind of light,check engine, abs,traction control? usually if the check engine light or service engine soon light comes on under heavy acceleration it leads to a bad O2 sensor. check the ECM for history codes.

99 yukon cuts out on the highway when accelerating but continues to run. replaced fuel pump and problem dramaticaly improved but still occures


Did you also replace the fuel filter when you replaced the fuel pump? A partially clogged filter will make the engine 'bog down' and lose power under heavy acceleration.

I have a ford mondeo diesel tdci 130 2ltr 20006 year bought car and on way home noticed dark-ish heavy smoke when turbo kicked in and got worse over next few days. car eventually went on to run in...


sounds about right for what i think it is ,now remove the EGR valve and make a gasket from a coca cola can and do not cut the middle out ,so it blocks it off completely then try it as i am almost positive this is your problem .

Under steady acceleration, engine light goes on


Being a 95 it dosent have OBD2 so it may not store a trouble code in the computer.
From the symptoms it sounds like either, Air flow sensor, O2 sensor
The O2 will not usually cause stalling under acceleration.

I have a 1996 Plym. Grand Voyager, hesitation & stalling.


If it works well at speed and acts up when slowing or stopped it doesn't sound like fuel filter or pump. You can try running injector cleaner through the engine to clean the carborator injectors or fuel injectors if you have those. Look at replacing the plugs and wires on the motor.

My 1992 Nissan Maxima is sputtering upon acceleration. It has 220,000 miles on it and it seems to mainly have this problem in first gear. And mostly happens shortly after starting the car. Ive done a basic...


92 max
I own a 92 max 370 kms runs good but one day just cuts out while doing about 30 km, I pull over i can start it no problem but when I touch the pedal to accelerate the car stalls out.

It got worse to the point of sputtering on the highway , sometimes i could keep it alive by working the pedal but others would slow down and stall out.

I have changed the fuel filter and plugs seemed to make it a bit better but still stalling. I ran it in my driveway for 10 mins on idle then it stalls out

Is this the fuel pump??

HOW TO CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER AND WHAT KIND OF PROBLEMS WOULD THE FUEL FILTER BE CAUSING?


The fuel filter is tucked away inside the frame, located on the drivers side, right about the middle of the door. If you crawl under the truck, looking up, you will see the fliter hidden neatly behind the beam of the frame. Its very easy to take off. Buy a new filter before you take the old one off, and you will then know what to look for. Hope this helps.
