If it is consistently the same spot when the car begins to act up i would bet your Throttle Positioning Sensor is at fault. When they go bad they get "holes" in them and then your computer cannot control the air/fuel mixture properly. They are not incredibly expensive ($35 from rockauto.com) and are usually easy to change.

    I forgot to mention, you should check your air filter also

    if the computer had noticed the sensor was out of range, yes it would, however if it simply has a dead spot in it, it may or it may not turn on your MIL

We have a 1987 Ford Econoline RV ... It starts fine but will only idle for 20-30 seconds.. When we put it in drive it sputters and quits... It also sputters and quits while idling...


Can you pump the gas pedal or spray carb cleaner into the throttle body to keep it running ?
Have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ?

1989 Oldsmobile Regency 88 - stalls and sputters


Hi All your love, Lucky boy, The vehicle is fairly old and I suspect it has a points and condenser ignition system. Renew the points and replace the condenser. Set the gap to .45 mm and then set up the firing position by loosening the distributor locking base and setting it at 6 degrees before top dead center. I think it is not a fuel problem but instead, ignition timing. Regards John

Acceleration problem


possibly camshaft position sensor in the distributor, or weak fuel fump starts acting up when warm, or throttle position sensor. heat has a effect on sensors and electrical components in some weird and hard to find ways.

1991 sentra 2dr 1.6 L rough idle in park and in drive at stop


Sounds like misfire. Change spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor , fuel and air filters. Check for oil in spark plug holes. if oil found change valve cover gasket spark plug orings. they can leak oil into spark plug holes and cause misfire.
