Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 50 cc dash scooter keeps bogging down. It seems to get worse when it's warmer. I can go and get up to about 35mph. and then it will start to slopwly Bog down. I'll let off of the throttle for a couple of seconds and then give it more throttle and it will pick back up to about 30 miles per hour, then start to Bob down again. I have counted and it seems to do that every 15 to 20 seconds after it is warmed up. please please please help me as I am not very mechanically inclined

Fuel and air mix is wrong, carb might need cleaning. or you have a blocked fuel filter. you could even have a air leak in one of the intake gaskets. try some fuel cleaner in the tank and run it round for awhile it may clear it but failing that you will need to check the intake and fuel filter. also check spark plug for its gap and colour. wet is flooded too much fuel

SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta wolfsburg bogs on early acceleration

Don't know if it applies to your diesel but most later gas engined vehicles have a 'cold start' valve that supplies additional fuel to the fuel/air mix along with boosting the idle speed until some warming of the engine is sensed.

SOURCE: starter kick back

If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...

Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !

If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.

Good luck !

SOURCE: bogs down on acceleration

buy 2 fuel filters. buy can of SEAFOAM at parts store. use 1 f filter to replace old one(you'll probably see old looking gas, with an odor).Pour SEAFOAM into tank. fill up with PREMIUM gas. after about 100 miles change out fuel filter 1 last time..add SEAFOAM every 3-5000 miles and you should be fine. the ethanol in the gas turns to goop and adds water to your fuel, and puts carbon on your valves and through out your emission and fuel system. The ethanol will be alright as long as you follow these instructions. and the SEAFOAM will keep you from having line freeze up in the cold months ahead, and will give you better gas mileage. good luck.

I think I would take a look at the catalytic converter. Sounds like it has become plugged and they will become more so as it gets hotter. Pull it loose and look in the front side to see what kind of shape the comb is in, should be obvious if that is it.

94 grand cherokee. after driving about 20 minutes it starts to bog down and lose power, before i could keep it 30-40 mph and be fine, now its getting worse

Your catalytic converter may have disintegrated internally. If the ceramic element in it has crumbled, it will glue together when cooling down and not impede the exhaust discharge for the first minutes but when hot, the broken pieces can gather at the output end and clog it. When you notice the bogging down becoming very noticeable, find a safe place to stop and leave the engine idling.
Listen at the tailpipe to learn if you can hear the 'normal' engine firing noises or if it sounds restricted and sounds more like a hiss than the typical 'throbbing' sound.
If so, then the cat is at fault and needs replacement.
I had this problem years ago and the first sign of trouble was a marked improvement in gasoline mileage, probably due to an initial mild increase in back pressure which the engine seemed to like. As the disease worsened, it fell back drastically and hill-climbing became iffy and coolant temp ran higher than normal.
Frankly, I 'cured' it with a .357 magnum and a couple of rounds into the tailpipe. The whole system was heavy gauge stainless steel and there was only a mild bend from the end to the cat. It didn't hurt the rest of the system but one could occasionally hear a rattle from the shards. ;-) Not legal in some states!

1995 Ford Escort LX, runs rough inconsistently, over 35mph it runs fine, under 35mph it is extremely rough, it is idling around 1000rpm - it used to idle around 500rmp. From an idle it is slow to get...

First of all there is a vacume leak, second how is the air filter?, tell the husband to change the MAF mass air flow sensor and I would also change the TEMP tempreature sensor.

E250 ford van suddenly started blowing hoses off that go to the egr position valve sensor. Even when both hoses are on the 5.4L engine has no power. It will take off ok as long as I take off slowly....

Most likely the catalitic converter is restricted causing excessive exhaust back pressure which blows the hoses off and causes the no power issue
