1 Answer

When I step on the gas pedal the truck hesitates it sounds like its choking and then al of a sudden it takes off like it should. doesn't happen all the time. But when it does I can push the gas pe

I have replaced the plugs, the wires, the 2 coil packs, fuel filter, the throttle positioning sensor and thermastat it seems like it could be the cat but im getting alot of exhaust coming out of the tail pipe. Then I thought maybe the fuel pump. But the truck starts right up 1st shot. Most of the time when a fuel pump goes it just dies.

Try a crankshaft position sensor. Just had a fuel pump installed and pump would not increase pressure properly. System relies on voltage cue from crankshaft sensor. Also some models had bad connections on fuel tank and that messes up voltage.

Some parts are expensive. You need to verify voltage before spending money.

Cutting out when you step on gas pedal hard. Rough idling.


Check the mass air flow sensor connection and clean the thin wires inside with a sensor cleaner and see if that helps.It usally does.

2001 mercedes c240 has a really rough start but when the car almost dies I turn the car off wait 3 seconds and it starts perfect. Next comes the issue with having to warm it up before driving anywhere...


Gasoline- thank you. Warm up is not an issue like diesel is. Sounds like the choke is is either wide open or over choking. With the engine cold, remove the air cleaner and note where the plate is at the opening of the carb. If it is wide open then without touching anything else and engine not running, step down on the gas pedal and see if the choke plate reset itself to restricter the carb inlet. If it didn't, then take some WD 40 and spray the linkages and the rod ends holdin the choke plate.By hand work the plate and linkage holding the gas open at the carb. Then set the plate to wide open and do the gas pedal thing agan to see if choke sets itself back to restricting the carb intake. If it does, start the engine and as the engine warms upm the choke plate should start opening on its own and you are off and running. Roitine question. Is your air cleaner clean? If the choke plate needs adjusting. get back to me. K? Good luck Remember to press the gas pedal down once before cranking. That sets the choke for cold start. Hope this helped you Good luck Note, the WD40 won't hurt anything but avoid spraying with engine running or when engine is hot..

Hesitation on acceleration engine runs fine otherwise


My 99 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro was havinga problem starting at times. It would idle poor upon start and then it would come up in rpm where it should be. I had hesitation from a start and after coasting for more than 5-8 seconds, the car would shake violently upon acceleration at about 1/3 throttle. I cleaned the Mass Air Flow Sensor. This helped but did not solve all my problems. I then replaced the Mass Air Flor Sensor. Little to no change there ($108.00). Lastly, I replaced the spark plugs. I bought Bosch plugs ($4.82 ea.). This got rid of all the symptoms. I had bad lugs and possibily a dirty MAF!
