    just under a load,if you pump the pedal fast several times you can get the car to rev-up but it will shut off once you let the rpms come down.

    New fuel pump installed no change

    Sounds surely like a fuel system problem. Does this occur just when under load or also when idling?

OK, sounds like starving for fuel, probably fuel pump related. I would have that tested first. Does the engine have fuel injection system?

I have a 99 Tahoe with no engine light stalled no fuel pressure installed new fuel pump assy. starts and runs fine at idle. but falls on face under acceleration. HELP


Have you checked base fuel pressure with a gauge ? You could have been sold the wrong pump, or the inline filter may be clogged.

Along with the vacuume leaks I would check the carb. The accelerator pump might be out of adjustment or something else in the carb. Currently I have the same problem with mine and I just adjusted it and for 1 day so far it's ran fine but I have a holley on mine. Carb may be dirty also.

1993 Geo Prism idles fine, but won't accelerate. If you perform a WOT it falls flat on its face (like starving for fuel) fuel pressure is good. But if you bring the throttle in very, very slowly it will...


Several possibilities there; first I suggest scanned the ECU to read some fault code stored there; this action could learn us if the codes are present while engine is in and idle in real time.

Other thing that you need to check is the fuel pump pressure, need to be 13psi range all time, the other possibiliti is the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor).

Also, you may just have a vacuum leak, a vacuum guage would show it, but so would the scan tool.

Finally, test and check transmission, discart us some torque converter problem and checking the transs fluid levels.

Keep us updated.

shift solenoid is internal to the trans and could be your concern depending one which solenoid is the concern

more often than not though you would hear the engine rpm's higher and the vehicle not moving

I's start with a trans flush and see if the concern repeats

if so then you need more diagnoses like what is fuel pressure at the time of the concern, MAF in grams/second and TP data

My 1986 Ranger 2.9 liter is hard to start (i have to pump the gas to get it to start) once it starts it runs fine until it gets warmed up then when you step on the gas it falls flat no power will not move,...


Just taking a shot here as I have seen the same thing in the shop in that last month....I am going to throw you two scenarios as you don't say if it has a carb or F.I.
If it is Fuel Injection the filter or a weak pump would be the culprit.
If it is a carb engine there is an item called an accelerator pump. this pump pumps fuel into the throat unmixed so during startup and on acceleration it needs this raw fuel, on startup to just get fuel into the chambers and on acceleration when switching from the Idle to the venturi there is a dead spot that this pump covers for.. A 20 dollar rebuild kit for the carb is all you need. there should be a tag on the carb for the ID to give to the parts store..
