Engine cut out when accelerating


You need to do some testing to determine the cause. First I would suggest that you install a fuel injection system pressure tester. Tape it to the windshield and go for a test drive. Does the fuel pressure drop at high RPM? If so, you probably have a weak fuel pump. Normal fuel pressure for your Jeep is 44 to 54 PSI.
Another item to test is for excessive exhaust system back pressure [above 3 PSI] You can obtain a kit which will allow you to perform this test with a simple carburetor fuel pressure/vacuum tester. Excessive exhaust back pressure will cause a lose of power. Most likely cause is a clogged catalytic converter. Without a pressure tester, simply loosen the exhaust pipe(s) from the exhaust manifold and road test the truck. If performance improves, you have clogged catalytic converter(s)
FYI, clogged catalytic converters are caused by driving for months with an excessively rich fuel mixture. Once you replace the converter(s) you need to find and fix the source of the rich mixture problem. Worn oxygen sensors or a defective MAF (mass air flow) sensor are the most likely causes.

I have a Hyundai Trajet 2002 Gasoline. I have a problem with keeping the engine alive.


The engine is running very rich that is why the exhaust is emitting black smoke. The engine needs a tune up so the air fuel mixture is correct.

I have a 2001 chevy blazer my problem i have is after driving for more than a hour it start to not want to go even when you have the gas to the floor it back fires put well still run had it in two places...


the ignition module . may be getting hot and results in loss of power. On distributor-equipped GM vehicles, the ignition module is usually located inside the distributor housing. Ignition module overheating is a common problem,
and can cause stuttering, poor fuel economy, power loss or engine shut-off after warm-up. A classic sign of module overheating is a rich fuel mixture, which is indicated by a strong odor of gasoline in the engine exhaust when the engine is stuttering. if light is on get it scanned to find problem code. check with the auto-parts stores in your area, they may be able to test the module for you. this may not fix it. but it sounds like it will. good-day ! if the module tests fine, put in a new one anyway. because old one may have been breaking down under the heat, but usually will run fine when cold. if bad. 2010-05-10_185402_module2.gifthis is a picture of control module 2001 blazer 4.3, let me know the out come ok! control module is #2 on diagram.

I have a 2000 Lincoln ls smells like rotten eggs. What could it b?


This is usually caused by the catalytic converter on the front of your exhaust system usually when its new and when you put your foot flat down on the accelerator. If you have this smell constantly, change your usual fuel supplier, or add an additive when you put fuel in it, quality of fuel also has an affect.

My car's fuel consuption has suddenly gone up, from 9-10km/L to hardly 6-7km/L. Engine type is 1G-FE. What are the possible solutions?


There is fuel leaking outside the engine. Possible areas are the tank itself, fuel lines and fittings, and the fuel filter. These usually cause puddling under the vehicle. However, if fuel is leaking onto hot exhaust system parts, it will vaporize and leave no puddle. Find and fix the leak.

There is fuel leaking inside the engine. This is usually from a fuel injector that is leaking fuel into one of the cylinders. The engine will run rich and burn extra fuel. The fuel leaking past the rings of the piston in the cylinder involved will contaminate the engine oil and give it a fuel odor. The contaminated oil will not lubricate the bearings properly and more engine troubles will develop. Find and replace the leaking injector.

Fuel may be being burned due to an unnecessary rich mixture caused by a malfunctioning oxygen sensor. Oxygen sensors are usually designed to fail to the rich mixture side. Failing to the lean side would cause engine damage. On the rich side, the engine is protected from damage although fuel mileage will suffer. You may see black smoke while accelerating and a sooty carbon buildup on the inside of the exhaust tailpipe. Test the oxygen sensor and if it fails, replace it.
