Is your fuel flow rate normal? If you have heavily contaminated fuel, then even a new filter is going to clog up quickly.

Check your distributer cap if you have one, especially the inner electrodes and for any cracks, and the condition of any rotor within it.

SOURCE: 1987 nissan pickup (z24) acts like there is a govner.

It is your coil. One coil cuts out under load and the other one runs full time. It'll run on either coil alone just fine. Your problem is that the one that is supposed to run full time has gone bad, the other coil which is supposed to cut out under heavy load is the only coil running your car. When it cuts out, the truck wants to quit until you let off and the computer (ECU) allows it to come back on. Should be able to find a new coil for $40 bucks. Good luck.

Why does it continue to spit and sputter going uphill?


Spit and sputter can happen because of not enough fuel or air. last thing to check for fuel is the fuel pressure regulator. On the air side would be the the air filter(filthy) or catalytic converters(clogged). on the mechanical side, Could be bad rings, burnt valves. Compression test would find this.

Acceleration problem


Could be a clogged fuel filter, could also be a slight crack in the throttle body gasket. get a spray bottle with water in it, set it to mist, while the vehicle idles, spray around the base of the throttle body, if it bogs down replace the throttle body gasket. Just curious, was it doing it before you changed the plugs and wires? If not make sure you have the firing order correct.

Old '87 ranger been sitting in folks yard few years. fires up fine, but spits and sputters going down the road


Old fuel in tank, fuel filter clogged, plugged/clogged carb. or fuel injectors.

1. Drain fuel from tank and replace with new fuel with SeaFoam or Lucas

2. Repace fuel filter

3. With engine running at a high idle and air cleaner off, spray or pour carb/fuel injection cleaner into carb/fuel injectors.

If problems persist, check plug wires for cracks and/or breaks. Pull spark plugs checking for fouling.

We have a 1999 F-350 7.3 desil Truck that can only be started with starting fluid. Once started it spits and sputters. We have replaced the fuel pump and filter and the engine possitioning sensor. We also...


Hm. it's a Diesel. So, it uses glow plugs.
Diesel engines work on the principle of exploding diesel fuel vs. burning gasoline fuel.

If it is spitting and sputtering, there is a possible problem with the fuel that is in the tank.

You see, Diesel fuel, according to Wikipedia, changes its formula drastically from winter to summer to work best in winter or summer climates.

I would drain the Diesel out of the tank and replace with fresh Diesel from your local Diesel Fueling station.

If this doesn't work, then, you may have a sensor gone awry or a compression issue.

Good luck on this one.

Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate


Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).

Try replacing the ignition module in the distributor. This is a common problem on these engines.
