Fiat punto 2002 stutters when driven


The amber MiL light, lights on a number of problems. You need to get it sorted, you could miss a serious fault, and cause More damage. Needs to go on a code reader. From past experience with Punto's, the stutter could be a ignition coil fault (quite common) or a spark plug, both will cause the light to come on. Good Luck.

What could cause the car to stutter when under load going up hill.


It sounds to me like a passing gear issue. Or even and Over Drive issue. Try this to find out. When you put the car in gear, instead of O/D, try regular drive. If you have a push button O/D then deactivate it. If you only have Drive, then try shifting into 3. Run the car up to the same speeds you were having problems with. If you don't have the issues with the higher RPM's then it is an Overdrive/Highway gear issue. If it still stutters, then it could be a fuel delivery issue. Good luck.

engine miss caused by many things,weak ignition from bad ignition coil, ignition timing off if you have high mileage engine low compression from worn burned valves.could have something minor like stopped up air filter, clogged dirty fuel injectors, through the years i have seen many things cause engine to miss.

IHAVE A 1991 JIMMY GMC I HAD TUNE IT UP PUT A NEW CAP AND ROTO PLUG AND WIRE AND CHANGE THE FUSE FILTER ALSO BUT IT KEEP CUP OFF WHEN I MAKE ACOMPLETE STOP AND WHE IAM RIDE WHAT COUL IT BE.


3 most common causes for your problem are:
  1. Bad EGR (Exhaust Gas Reciculation) valve - clogged EGR will cause engine to stutter or miss
  2. Bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor - will also make an engine stutter when bad
  3. Bad TPS (Throttle Postition Sensor) regulates idle speed under multiple conditions.

Stutters when driving under pressure


check the fuel pressure regulator and the injectors, the common problem with this car is the crank sensor, located on the gearbox, behind the engine, did the home tune carryout a computer diagnostic, if not get one done asap, it will save u money and time.
