Car started surging badly and would smooth out below 2500rpm.

I was accelerating onto the freeway when I lost power.I pulled off the road and let the car sit with the battery disconnected. I tried to restart 30 minutes later and the the engine would die immediately. What possible problems could cause this?

I read the manual and if there is a MAF fault the engine will not rev ablove 2400 rpm.
Now my problem, is that I don't want to spend $400 for a new sensor.

2001 camaro engine surge on acceleration


"SURGE" Loses power a little? Common problem is the EGR valve gets a confusing message.It sees many sensor inputs from the ECU and if one of many is sending the wrong message it will open up,falsely. FIND the EGR valve and plug the vacuum source and try the car again. if problem is not there,there should be an investigation by a trained mechanic/technician.


DONT leave it plugged.

Also ,have a transmission expert drive your car so he/she can feel the problem. A tranny shop" won\'t charge you for this test drive.

1994 Olds 88 - Car shakes badly when accelerating, usually in the 45-50 mile per hour range. Also now idling rough. Came on all of a sudden. Any ideas before I take it to a shop. Seems to stop shaking...


There is a big possibility that you have wheels that are not balanced. You should have the wheels check wear, missing wheal weights ect. I think if you get this done it will take care of the problem. Good luck.....

Loosing power at cruising speed


Hi. I have two Dynasty LE cars, (a 91 and a 93). Both have the 3.3 litre. The 1991 had almost the same problem as yours except it would only do it once the engine warmed up, (similar to your freeway issue, given distance and time for the engine to warm up to operating temp.) I had it in about three shops before the dealer found an intermittent fault with the cam and crank sensors. I replaced them and now it runs just fine. I hope this helps.
