Take your vehicle to autozone, advance auto or orielly's and have them hook it up to their diagnostic tester. Free service by all. Sounds like a sensor is bad or you have moisture in distributor; or your control module is shorting out. You didn't mention type of auto. GM's have electronic control modules under coil pack depending on year. Others like ford have mass airflow sensors to control this along with a module. Best to take to one of the autoparts stores I recommended and have it hooked up.

By stutters I imagine you mean judders or jumps. The problem is in the length of the drive shaft and the intermediate shaft support bearings/rubbers lose or worn out. It comes from the tail shaft tending to wind up under load and as the vehicle moves the wind up is released only to be repeated. Check u-joints --- rubber supports and bearings on tail shaft.

Why did my speedometer stop working and within minutes my 02 Cadillac Sts stalled and would barely accelerate?


The speedometer and odometer gets a signal from the speed sensor in the side of the transmission where the speedo cable once was.
The problem could be the speed sensor, or something in the wiring, or in the instrument cluster. Or it could be that the transmission is failing internally.

Try replacing the IAC ( idle air control). They can cause the hesitations and can also cause the vehicles ilde to jump up and down. Also check for any loose vaccuum lines.

Problem - Stuttering engine help please. My Ford Focus 2002 TDCi 1.8 diesel has a judder between 2,000 and 3,000 rpm. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, what is the solution? To give you an


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Your problem is difficult to diagnose in part because of limited info to go on. I have a couple of questions and some possible solutions. First of all, I'm making an assumption since you speak of second gear, that you have a manual transmission. Secondly, the spedo measures transmission output and translates to speed on your instrument panel. It sounds as if the tachometer is racing up rather than the spedo. The fact that it does good in a lower gear than a higher ratio indicates possibly that your clutch is slipping during acceleration. If you can clarify a few things perhaps I can be of more assistance with your problem. #1 Is it manual shift? #2 Is it possible that your tachometer is going up and not the speedometer?

4x4 ute starts, idles, revs fine, but while driving, acceleration above 2500revs the cars jumps and hops and i have to take foot off accelerator


Check if your vehicle uses points in the ignition, if it does they sometimes break the earthing wire inside distributor advancer plate (Where the points screw onto)
This gives the symptom you describe.
Sorry but it difficult to be more accurate in diagnosing the cause of your problem without a very detailed description of whats happening.
All the best MMP
