Question about 1983 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

Car sputtering When i push on the gas easily because im trying to save gas lately, my car sputters. I don't know what it is! I've changed the oil, checked the distributor, spark plug wires, changed the spark plugs, tranny filter and oil. Plus too my car is leaking engine and transmission oil if that has anything to do with it. If you have any ideas, email me. Thanx

    Thanx a bunch. I appreciate the advice. I thought so about the carburetor but it is too cold to work on it at this time.

Hello;
You probably need the carbureator cleaned and rebuilt. The transition from idle to midrange flow is clogged. The accelerator pump diaphragm is proobably weak and worn to the point of near failure. Hope this helps.
Thanks and please rate me.

Kia sportage 2007 sputters when I drive jerks and this am as I tried to speed up it didn't seem to want to shift up just reving ??!! I changed allready pump belts and do many other parts what could it be ?...


sputters in the context if engine, means MISFIRING, is it?

for a transmission, they dont sputter. sorry

but can jerk, or snatch, (being caused by gears engaging way to late)

(aka, harsh shifting) the opposite of slip

but it can slip then engage, causes a jerk. or harsh shifting.

see?

they do 100 things wrong, mostly never to sputter.

they don\'t shift up or down

they slip. (bad tranny)

if engine sputters, its tune up time, (posted like 10,000 times here)

if the transmission has issues, have real mech test it and tell you

all the symptoms, and possible ideas.

why not?

the A/T is a very very complex electro /mechanical device.



sputter is a word best for engines. like chain saw with a bad spark plug it sputters along and stalls.

does your car stall?

Do you have the 3.4 or 3.8? If its the 3.4, they had issues with the fuel pressure regulators getting funky. I had to replace one on mine twice before the car had 150K.

not an oil filter but I think an fuel filter would do it, try changing fuel filter and adding a couple cans of dry gas

Check the fuel filter to see if it is plugged.
Remove the fuel filter, and blow air through it in the normal direction of fuel flow. You should be able to blow through it very easily. If it feels restricted, try blowing through it the opposite way, and if there is a lot of dirt coming out, you have found a common cause of this problem. Hope this helps.
