Do a code check to get an idea what's going on. My first reaction is to say to check tps, but it may be "covering up" another problem.

Why is engine cutting out while driving


Could be clogged injectors, water in the gas, bad spark plugs, or an electrical issue. Have someone run a diagnostic on it and see if any trouble codes come up.

Peugeot 206 stalling, either cuts off or I floor the gas pedal


When you "floor the gas pedal" the computor goes into a bypass mode (emergency mode). This honestly sounds a lot like a problem I ran into a while back on a Dodge truck. Problem was a cracked intake manifold (plastic). Short version: vacuum leak.

2006 pontiac grand prix is skipping while driving


It's the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) beginning to fail. The sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer on the lower RH side of the engine. If you look down the accessory belt from the alternator you"ll see a wiring harness leading behind the crankshaft pulley. An easy way to diagnose a faulty sensor is to warm up the engine and carefully tap on the sensor bracket while the engine is idling. A bad sensor will cut out and the engine will stall.

1995 Honda Accord accord gas problem


I guess that I am not sure what is wrong. Does it stall? Cut out? What do you mean "pat the gas?" Please clarify more so we have a better idea what is going on.
