THE GDI ENGINE SUFFERS FROM EXTREME "COKING" - DEPOSITS THAT STICK AROUND THE VALVES AND PREVENT PROPER OPERATION, RESULTING IN POWER LOSS. REPAIR CAN BE EXTENSIVE AND COSTLY ESPECIALY IF YOU START TO HEAR A RATTLE ON IDLE. THE FIRST STEP I WOULD SUGGEST IS, TRY USING FUEL ADDITIVES SUCH AS WURTH FUEL/GAS/VALVE TREATMENT THESE ADDITIVES ARE QUITE CAPABLE OF CLEARING OR CLEANING CONTAMINATED PARTS IN TIME.

2001, is most likely drive by cable. check the plastic clips at the throttle body and the gas pedal. They break. If it was drive by wire. it would have thrown a code. You can't buy the clips. replace the cable

What needs to be checked when my truck has poor acceleration going up a hill? Why does it have no power and then have surges of power


depending on the model of truck , it could be the throttle body that causes poor acceleration ,could be the fuel filter if the engine starves for fuel it will affect the performance , yo should check fuel pressure and volume on the fuel system ,it could also be the eger vavle most newer trucks and cars have linear eager vavles and if the stick a little open on idle they can cause surging ,poor acceleration even missing . if the check engine light is on find out the codes and go from there . on older models it could be the TPS or the IAC v, but i would need to know what codes are in it first . It could be as simple as bad fuel .or a vacuum leak

Hello, the first thing you need to do is check the throttle body bore for carbon build up. pretty common to have the the throttle body build up carbon between the throttle bore and throttle plate causing some unstable idle problems. you can clean out the throttle body bore with some throttle body cleaner and a shop rag
