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 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.
