SOURCE: rough idle, backfire on acceleration

check everything you can under the hood your air intake system all of it especially make sure all clamps are tight .. and make sure all vacuum hoses are good and not cracking or broken or just loose . you might run a little fuel cleaner through a tank of gas too cleaning the engine fuel system up some. just a few ideas..

SOURCE: Backfires in manifold on motor on acceleration. runs ok low speeds

Nornally reson for backfire is when intake Valve open Internal combustion in Cylinder. Pls Check Your Ignition Timing & Valve Timing. ( I think Your Timing Advancer is Defect )

1991 Dodge Stealth runs well but when heavy on accelerating it starts to kick and sputter. Like it is starving for gas.


Because it is. Change the fuel filter. Wouldn't hurt to throw in some injector cleaner on the next 3 or 4 fill ups.

Sounds like your fuel pump starting to die. It is not getting enough gas under heavy acceleration which is 100% fuel pump slowly dying. At start up it might not be building up enough fuel pressure to feed the system but the shot of ether and engine cranking helps pressure the system just enough for the fuel pump to trickle the gas and run the engine at low rpms.

Acceleration promlems


Check for fuel supply problems as it sounds that at sustained high speed the fuel supply is not good enough. Possible pump dosen't have enough capacity

Why does my 1998 sebring idle fine but sputter badly under load.


Does it use spark plug wires or individual ignition coils for the each plug?. My 98 intrepid uses coils and occasionally I have to change them out cause it would start to miss when normal temperature was achieved. If it uses wires, try replacing them, along with the spark plugs.

I know you mentioned the EGR valve has been replaced, but you may have a bad 'new' part. I know the car is electronic, but has anyone checked its ignition timing (timing belt been looked at, I know it only has 77k on it). Is the fuel pressure regulator OK and it vacumm supply?

91 mitsubishi gto has random engine cut out.


Does this car have its original ECU? I ask this because this and a number of early 1990s Mitsubishi cars/truckas had isses with capaciors leaking. In truth I believe it is a matter of when and not if. As the ECU begins to fail the engine can begin to run poorly ( I speak from experience after changing both ECUs in my Montero and my son's Doge Stealth (3000GT) ) I did have an issue too with my son's Stealth running poorly, by good luck I happened to be looking under the hood with poor lighting and noticed a faint blue spark from the wiring leads by the coil after a good look I fould a wire would ground out when the engine was throttled; this caused the engine to torque slightly causing the wire to rub and finally ground out.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Sudden loss of power, Backfiring, starts then stalls


Your timing belt could be broken. You want to have this checked as soon as possible to prevent any further engine problems.
