SOURCE: 2003 Kia Spectra Loss of power during exceleration

Hi,
The air cleaner mighty be clogged causing insufficient air supply. That is why it runs fine on idle because less air is needed and when the engine demands for more air, there isn't enough.

SOURCE: car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive

Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

Number three cylinder is miss fire,it does not mean it is the coil,although it could be,remove the coil,and boot,and spark plug,inspect them to see if the plug,or boot look bad,replace the spark plug,and if the boot is burned or distorted,replace it,a fuel injector can cause a miss fire also,but change the spark plug and see if this solves the problem,if not replace the coil,if it is a dead miss,then the coil might be bad,as for the water in the fuel ,the cap is missing,,and 5 dollars worth of HEET will not hurt,also,fuel from the fuel station,can have water in it.It happens a lot.

I have a 2002 doge caravan that i smell gas sometimes. its running rough and sounds its back firing. when you excelerate it doesnt want to and i hear a popping sound. already changed spark plugs and g


Remove the Engine Air Filter Housing and look under it for a vacuum line that goes back to the gas tank You will get a gas smell at times because this is an open line to the gas tank and evaporation container. It's common for the rubber elbow there to split and cause issues. Check ALL vacuum lines. The increase in air into the fuel system is causing a backfire "popping sound" and a loss of power.

Car won't start sounds like engine loss compression


You may need to drain your gas tank,never add stuff to it.Always use the right octane that the owner manual states.

Sounds like fuel starvation. 1) change fuel filter. 2) change fuel pump. GM pumps don't hold up to water in the tank (methanol fuel) very well. Its a 2003 so its probably time. Never replace as many parts as you have, without first performing an OBDII scan of the stored fault history, to avoid buying parts you don't need

2.4l has gas in oil and no power


check the fuel pressure regulator and the map sensor vacuum hoses. as for the not revving above 4000 rpm is what the computer limits the engine to with no load on it, like in park or neutral.

all are very possible but you can go to any chain auto parts to get your codes read especially if your light was flashing this indicates serious trouble once you have the codes its easier to help you but it sounds like a misfire to me meaning bad spark plug,wire or coil.

Truck has set for two yrs. i would crank an go around the coner put insurance on it drove a few days later it started running sluggish it kills at stop it cranks right back i put a tune up changed plugs...


After sitting for 2 years, the gas has moisture/water and it's pretty much not gas anymore. It's like your car needs 87 octane and you are running on 80 octane, just enough to fire off but not strong enough to to keep a good idle/firing. I would drain all the gas out and use a higher octane gas for a half of tank just to clean the lines and injectors. Fill the tank up 1/2 with high octane and use a bottle of injector cleaner. This should clear up the sluggish problem. Also it's a good idea to change the oil and run an engine cleaner through. Drain a quart of oil, and pour in the engine cleaner. Let engine run for about 5 min for oil to heat up and circulate. Drain oil and change oil filter, put in new oil.

DO A LITTLE TUNE UP.CHANGE SPARK PLUGS.CHANGE FUEL FILTER.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS.FILL FUEL TANK UP.AND ADD A BOTTLE OF FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER IN FUEL TANK.WHEN YOU DRIVE CAR AROUND.THE INJECTOR CLEANER WILL CLEAN OUT FUEL INJECTORS.IF CAR STILL RUN ROUGH IN DRIVE.YOU COULD HAVE INTAKE LEAK.
