Sounds like your break booster is not working. you might have a major leak of vacume there. no vacume at booster and break pedel will be hard. that will also make it feel like it dosent have any power. chk. vacume filter in line going to booster see if pluged, if its got one. if not then i would say booster is bad.

Engine sputters when accelerating


The flashing light means the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. And get the plugs replaced.

2002 CHEVY VENTURE, ran through standing water, now it starts, sputters, and stalls.


I think you should head to a mechanic. Sounds like you got water in the fuel system. You could possibly resolve the issue by filling up with a fresh tank of gas, but that could also cause more problems if there is a lot of water in there already. I'd take it to a trusted mechanic.

1998 pontiac sunfire manual. Car starts but sputters and then dies and is completly dead but in the morning will start again and then die. I changed the coil pack but still the same. what can it be?


You can't do any testing, until you have a battery
that will take and hold a charge

Then you move on to testing the Alternator,then
Fuel Pressure & continue on with other testing

Check for spark at the sparkplug, to see if everything in the dist. is working right. And check the injector harness for something being pulled loose when the wires were jerked out.

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0 I6 with about 155k miles that is having intermittent issues. I just recently had to replace my muffler because of the car backfiring. This problem doesn't happen...


Have it checked with a computer diagnostics. It sounds like it could be a bad sensor, quite possibly your oxygen sensor. A bad sensor could cause the computer to think your engine needs more fuel.

From what you posted,it may be a few different problems.BUT.The 1st thing I would look at is the cat/converter may be blocked.Hey.It may not be.But look at that before you spend any money on other stuff.I just thought.How is your air filter.Take it out and take the car for a short run and see how it goes.This may show what is wrong.Hope this helps
