1 Answer

No acceleration, car doesn't start or stops running

When I press the gas sometimes the car doesn't respond. Also sometimes when I try to start it seems it's getting no gas and doesn't start or even worse when I'm driving and press the gas the car shuts off.

    Thanks for that. I thought about the fuel filter but haven't changed one before.

When did you last replace fuel filter? Check and replace it.
Check fuel pressure if you have the equipment.
Possible causes of your problem are fuel filter or possible fuel pump that is going out.
If you have a code scanner (they are relatively cheap now) pull the codes and see what you get.
Many shops will read the codes for free or cheaply.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

Bucking, slow acceleration, & shuts off


it can be couple of thing Try a fuel injector cleaner or new fuel injectors.it can be vacuum leak. Engines need a vacuum to run especially at idle which is when your car dies. It could be a stuck EGR.
If the check engine light comes on it will store a code so take it to a shop and pay them to read the codes. This may give you a starting point.
