Check your fusible links; these are small wires molded into the middle of a bigger wire they are usually located up by the battery cables. When they burn they become discolored and softly flexible. Also check your relays too.

Car kept losing power and would not respond to my foot on the gas.... I had to veer off the side of the road...stopped the car and restarted it...happened 4 times...reminds me of when my fuel sensor went...


I think I would check the Catalytic Converter before I would go further. When they get jammed up with exhaust particles they put too much back pressure on the engine and cause what you are experiencing. The test would be to remove the Cat exhaust pipe at the header connection. Then see if the engine responds much better. A fuel sensor is only a NOX sensor and should not slow the engine down to the point of no power. I had two go out on my 91 Toyota Land Cruiser. It did not change much but I had a light on the dash telling me to get things repaired in a hurry. Hope this helps. Happy Driving.

Loses power while going down the road, have replace the plugs, changed the fuel filter. will start, but loses power when driving.


have you looked at the air filter? have you done a catalyst efficiency test? this could be a plugged cat. save yourself the time and aggrevation and locate a reputable muffler/exhaust repair facilty and have them check the catalytic convertor. happy holidays

Lose of power on acceleration like its starving


Sounds like there is a load of dirty fuel in that gas tank. Ran good for a while after changing fuel filter, then began to run poorly again. Remove fuel tank, drain and clean out, replace fuel filter AGAIN. That should cure it. Hope this helps
