Car starts hesitating an bucking and barely drives..........then next day is fine.

This happened before and after I shut car and let it sit for about an hour it drove perfectly fine until today which is about 3 weeks... the hesitating andsort of bucking seems like the car is gonna stall out at a light but it did make it home. felt like it was struggling to go and did not seem to respond to the accelerator

SOURCE: 1996 Camry 100 km stalling

This sounds like a common Camry problem. After driving my vehicle for about 20 minutes in highway traffic, the vehicle has difficulty idling when I slow down behind another car or turn a corner. This quickly deteriorates and then the car actually stalls when I slow right down or
Then usually the car starts again right away, but when I slow down again, stalls. Then when I start it up again, usually in traffic, I can’t get the shift into Drive. If I allow it to sit engine off for 3 – 5 minutes, it starts again, the shift can slide into shift, and the car goess off again, like nothing happened.

SOURCE: Check engine and VSC lights on

I talked to you on the live chat, and I think that you may have missed the end of my typing...

What I went on to say is that more often than not, on the 02 4Runners, the Check and VSC lights in tandem look mainly after the emission system, and, since you stated no issues during the road test, I would guess that it is a fuel issue (too full/loose gas cap). But, if you can get the vehicle scanned, I will be very glad to provide you with more and better info if you provide me with the DTC codes. That would require your guy or an autozone hookup to a scan tool. I hope my clarification helps; and the graciouness of a FIxYa rating for this question would be greatly appreciated

SOURCE: Toyota 02 is stalling, won't idle

Check the voltage of battery with voltmeter.. It is sometimes possible that if voltage of battery drops and jump start is needed, your computer will only charge to the last voltage that was recognized which would be when jumped...Try and charge the battery if possible I would actually suggest that you have your battery tested at local auto parts store and if it is presumed in good condition ,let them charge for you to max capacity . If battery has been tested and labeled as no good replace if necessary... Oh, and first thing you should do is make sure your positive and negative battery connections are clean and tight...if this didnt fix problem please give more info on what was found when advice above was followed...Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: engine light,poor acceleration and bucking from engine

The evaporation canister can cause this, so would any vacuum leak. A faulty throttle position sensor or camshaft position sensor would also cause this but it would in the diagnostics most likely.

The next time it does this to you, try this:
Just barely press down on the accelerator pedal. Just enough that you can tell that the throttle plate is starting to open. (you can "feel" the slack come out of the throttle cable, then just a little more) hold the throttle in this position and crank the engine to see if it starts. If it starts, let go of the throttle and see if it dies. If this happens, you need to replace your Idle Air Control (IAC) solenoid.
Ford has had a lot of trouble with these and the problem tends to be worse after a "hot soak" ( sitting for a short time after shutting of a hot engine).

Please note that you must be careful to not open the throttle too far when trying this. This is because if you open it too far, the injectors will open up too much and cause the engine to not start because of flooding.

scan the computer with a computer scanner just to see what it says. check your intake, I am thinking your mass air flow sensor is no good. it happened to my car where the rpm increases and decreases when the car is idle. Or it can be the IAC valve.

Had a similar problem that also caused the power brakes not to function. I believe there was a problem in the vacum fittings that was causing it to lose power but I am clearly not an expert.

2001 Xterra - Replaced fuel pump twice and is still not running.


I am no expert, but I just had a similar problem. The car would shake and buck when accelerating. It finally just died and would not start. After sitting for some time, the car would start and run a while, then do the same thing. I thought fuel pump. The dealer diagnosed distributor. After replacing, the car is running perfect. Something to think about. Good luck.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalling and not starting


Since you've replaced many of the usual suspects (fuel pump etc.) you might want to look into testing or simply replacing the crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor. If you intermittently lose one the these signals it would cause the problem you describe.
