I have a 2004 Ford f150 5.4 and I am getting a P0171 code by itself on and off. Whenever check engine light comes on the truck doesn't accelerate steadily but once the light goes off its fine. What co


Code 171 means the O2 sensor is telling the computer the fuel mixture for bank one is too lean. Bank one is the side with cylinder number one. The problem could be the sensor, or something else like an injector that is actually causing the fuel mixture to be lean. The sensor would need to be checked.

1996 nissan altima no acceleration and poor idle?


check whether you might have a catalyst problem,1. doesn't idle as no emissions let out of the exhaust system,2. doesn't accelerate as the engine is pressurized as no released emission. Try to check by requesting somebody to accelerate as steady and you check through the end of your exhaust pipe if the emission outlet sound is loud enough or if is like weak sound.if is the second result surely your cat is the problem as also you receive a smell of a rotten egg as well.

Belts and pulley replaced on chrysler LHS, and now it squeals really bad


Try some belt dressing. If that doesn't work, the tensioner pulley may not have been installed properly. Return for warrant service.

95 chevy 1500 pops and backfires doesn't want to shift into overdrive when cold when it does the truck runs real rough


Have you checked the fuel pressure under a load, low pressure will cause these symptoms. The test port is on the top of the engine in the fuel supply rail to the fuel injectors, the fuel pressure test port looks like a large tire fill valve. You will need a fuel pressure test gauge to do this test (about $20), the pressure must be watched while you accelerate, it should never go down on hard acceleration just up about 6-8 PSI

2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS 3.3 Check Engine and ESC light comes on; vehicle "stalls" and doesn't want to accelerate. Intermittent


You have more than one issue/problem going on. Stop Lamp switch is the most common occurance with ESC. The other is the TPS, throttle position sensor (voltage correlation).

Have a qualified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose your vehicle.

96 prizm stalling at stops. sputtering when accelerating and especialy when not accelerating. If I give it alot of gas it doesn't sputter or jump.


Sounds like your Idle Air Control valve is bad. The IAC valve controls the engine idle speed. The valve is located on the side of the throttle body. This valve allows the necessary amount of air, as determined by the (PCM) and controlled by a duty cycle signal, to bypass the throttle plate in order to maintain the proper idle speed. Good luck!
