Question about 1992 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

1992 C1500 5.7L Hesitates when I push on the gas pedal.

If I give it enough gas, the truck accelerates nicely. This problem occurs at any speed and it does not matter if it is -5 or 80 degrees outside. I have had this problem for about 9 months now and it has not gotten any worse.
I have replaced the spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor and the fuel filter so far. Air filter is a K&N. The truck has 150,000 miles on it.

    Thanks s60six! I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor this morning and it is running great now! The part was $30 and it was easy to replace.

1989 chevy hesitates when giving it alittle gas and almost dies but dosent


It appears that you have what is known as a flat spot in the carby ( I assume you have one). It occurs as the butterfly is opened and there is a transition period from idle to increased rpm's in the jets . To over come this there is an accelerator pump that provides a squirt of fuel to provide the correct air/fuel ratio until the main jets cut in. If you have a Holley it is in the form of a diaphragm inside a nut in the immulsion block. IN other carbies it is a plunger . If you have EFI then have the codes read to find which sensor is failing

sounds like engine need some cuddle :) I mean, first thing to do is to check engine compression ratio. If that is ok, then make sure carb adjustments are correct and all fuel lines ar clean. Good luck!

Hesitates to accelerate and power loss


Did you check the fuel pressure before and after replacing the pump ?
Is the check engine light on ?

I have a 1998 nissan 200 sx 1.6L engine and the car hesitates while accelerating. The engine light is not on and there are no codes. It will accelerate slowly with just a little pressure on the gas pedal....


SOULDS LIKE EXCESSIVE EXHAUST BACK PRESSURE CAUSED BY A RESTRICTED CAT CONVERTOR. SHOULD HAVE NO MORE THAN 1.5 TO 3 PSI CHECKED AT THE O2 SENSOR AT IDLE AND AT 2500 RPM. THE CONVERTOR CAN BECOME DAMAGED IF UNBURNT FUEL ENTERS IT. THIS IS CAUSED BY TUNE UP CONCERNS USUALLY.

Truck hesitates when gas pedal pushed down


I assume the truck isn't due for a tune up if it is an '07. Sound like a mass air flow or manifold pressure sensor problem. Autozone will pull the problem code for free and the sensors aren't too expensive, but I your truck should be covered under warranty right?
