2004 Corolla engine chokes when acellerating

Every once in a while the engine seems to choke a little when given a little gas, especially when not warmed up or climbing a small hill. If I let off when this happens then get it more gas it usually stops. Can you tell me what the problem might be before I spend a lot money trying to figure this out? Should I get my fuel injuection system cleaned? or fuel filter replaced?

    The check engine light is not on. I had the fuel injecter cleaned and I am still waiting to see if it has the problem since my wife drives the car. Any other things it could be?

    I have the same problem, but my check engine light is on.

    Before you do anything, please advise me if the check engine light is on. Secondly, the fuel filter is def not your problem. If it was, the car would run bad all of the time.

I would check the choke for proper operation , remove the air cleaner lid and see if the choke butterfly valve closes when you press the gas pedal down once with a cold engine, if not clean the choke blade and the linkage that close it with carb cleaner spray.

97 dodge neon- whirring in rear of car when running,engine chokes when the acellerator is pressed.


Whirring sound could be a rear bearing assembly. The engine choking could be caused by a malfunctioning coolant sensor. Make sure you have enough engine coolant in the system because that will cause an erratic engine performance. Also make sure your air cleaner is clean & have a new fuel filter installed. Good luck!

Sometimes to start you have to give it a lot of


Hi
This sounds like a cold start system fault, which is a number of things.
  1. Cold start temperature sensor not operating correctly so the cold start system won't work when the engine is cold.
  2. The idle needs to be set to the correct RPM of the engine when warm, if it is idling ok when it is warm then this wont be the problem.
  3. Spark Plugs are worn and need replacing.
Most case's its the cold start system not operating correctly and if you have a good workshop to take it too they should pick this up quite quickly. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

My 1984 Ford F-150 V8 302 choke is not working?


Your choke should have a spring at the bottom under a little cover with a rod coming up and connecting to the butterfly for the choke. Usually this get a little corroded and sticks, you need to clean the pieces so that they rotate freely and the rod will move up and down. It is adjusted on some models by bending the rod to make it longer or shorter. When you push down the gas pedal for the first time in the morning it should set the choke, test this by opening the throttle while its cold out, once the throttle is opened the choke should close, once the engine is running there is a vacuum operated linkage that should pull it back some, until the engine is warm. Again if this worked before, its probably dirty so a good cleaning is in order. Hope this helps, let me know

Choke coming on even in summer, is this right


it seems that your coolant temp senor is what causing this to happen it's natural inless it revs really high and stays above 1100 rpm's after the engine heats up.
