Question about 2003 Ford Focus

Car skips or jumps when i press gas

Just started yesterday - when I press the gas, feels like the car skips or jumps. I had to drive very slowly to get back home. I am afraid to drive it now. What can possibly be wrong? I filled up with gas night before and it ran all right for about 50 miles before it started acting up. Could it be the gasoline? I don't want to ruin my engine by driving it. Thanks.

My 2009 Dodge Caliber feel like it skipping so i change the spark plugs and stop so the gas cap light keep coming on so my gas cap and stop for a while and now its started back feel like it skipping


It may not be the gas cap at all, it may be the gas tank seal at the gas cap or a vacuum leak in the tank. Also could be a defective part.....it happens. Pressure tools check it out. Good luck, Frank M

My 2011 Honda Pilot engine skips when I slowly accelerate the gas. If I push on the gas quickly it doesn't skip. Any ideas?


Can't guess

You have to follow a diagnostic procedure
that works for whoever checks it out

You need a repair shop to road test it & you drive
with a mechanic and explain things, then they drive it,
and go back to the shop & they start some type of testing
they think is needed

No one can guess from the internet without the car

I would be checking for codes the first day it did that & then not drive it until I had code results

If you got a flashing Mil lamp on the dash or any check light,
you should have gotten to a shop right away

Kia sedona 2005 when driving feels like transmission is skipping, hesitating. What is doing on? Just had new transmission put in 7 months ago.


When does it skip and hesitate? While your driving or taking off or turning a corner?

It sounds like an automatic.

Jumping and skipping, feels like the car might just die


That is an EGR code, replace the EGR valve and it should run fine again.
