My 94 nissan sentra doesn't run smooth over 3000 rpm or if you mash the gas pedal


I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe that did the same thing. I changed the oil pump, new oil, and head gasket. It now has power and doesn't fall on its face when I step into the throttle hard. Hope this helps.

Replacing the Fuel Preasure Regulator And Fuel Filter Will Help. Most jeeps do this. In some cases you may have to Replace the Fuel Pump.

Jeep won't run unless you hold down gas pedal? what could be wrong? We have a 2004 grand Cherokee.....we finally got it to start but once we left of the gas pedal it dies. ANy help would be greatly...


its not getting enough fuel to engine. it could be a plugged fuel filter, low fuel pump pressure, or a bad pressure regulator. check the fuel filter first and then go from there. also be sure plugs and wires are ok.

Car only starts if you give it gas and has ruff idle 2001 grand-prix 3.1l


Start by having the computer scanned for codes the codes will telling if theres a problem and can help alot, the car may have a bad fuel preasure regulator where extra fuel is going to engine which makes it hard to start and rough idle, remove the vacuum hose from fuel preasure regulator and start engine if fuel comes out of the hose connection of regulator then replace it.if the regulator is good then go have codes pulled, hope this helps.

What things do I look for on my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee if the check engine light is on?


Ideally yo should tart by looking at the error codes - they will give you a much more accurate indication of what is wrong. You can check the wiring - this is usually caused by an unplugged sensor, the fuel pressure - clogged filter or injectors, sparkplugs - aged and misfiring, air filter - clogged.

Drving at road speed


Step 1

Check fuel pressure. If you have over 80,000 then just replace fuel pump and filter. Fuel pump is in the tank so run out as much gas as you can.

Step 2
Also do a tune up plugs , wires ect... if you haven't already.

88 jeep starts sometimes


If you keep your tank under 1/2 rust can form on inside of the tank causing the fuel filter to get clogged. I'ld check that first. When your remove filter, if it's a rusty color gas that comes out, I'ld bet that's your problem.
