Has no power

My 1990 RX7 looses all power when I floor it. The check engine light comes on and it spits and suptters until I turn the car off. Once I restart the car, the check engine light is off and the car will run with about 1/8 throttle, if I give it more the same thing happens again.

Check out your Thermal vacuum tree and your Thermostat. The scanner may be blaming the part when in fact the part does not have vacuum until the engine reaches a certain temperature. A weak Thermostat will prevent the engine from changing the Ignition timing quickly.

Some of the engines used water temperature as part of the choke system. The Thermal vacuum tree would route the vacuum to different dashpots and solenoids. Not only would cold temperatures activate RPM increases, but separate dashpots would trip when the engine was hot enough to run without the choke stepup and drop the RPM down to curb idle.

This made choke settings hard to set because it took so long to cool down the block to make further adjustments. The Ignition advance was regulated by water temperature so the stalling and spitting back is from retarded timing.

Remember to use your scanner to wipe the memory clean after each repair. Look for the Vacuum routing label under the hood to make sure the hoses are correct.

I own a hj toyotaq landcruiser 1990.. I attempted to start the engine and I lost all lights and power once I turned the key.. I have checked the battery and the fuses.. Still nothing


The most common is dirty battery terminals.
There is also a master fusible link that is much larger than a normal fuse. Do not rely on visual fuse check. You need to use a test light, and trace first battery +, then cable, then starter, then fuse block, etc.
It is a linear search until you don't get power anymore.

Mazda rx7 93 looses power @ 7k+


Look for restrictions in the intake air and exhaust systems. Check fuel pressure and delivery (fuel filter/pump). Check the ignition system as well. If the engine has a lot of miles, you may be experiencing combustion seal wear. These are amazing engines when they work correctly! Good luck!

Check engine light won't go out on my plymouth


You need the scanner to turn the light off.Your pcm is throwing an engine code.When you do turn it off it will probably come back on until you fix the problem.Most shops will scan it for free.They can tell you what is wrong.

do you change the engine oil your car crosses the maximum miles with the old engine oil once your engine oil density become very low you will get the black smoke (or) you need to check the radiator water wether water and coolant is in correct level or not if it is in correct level you need to change the oil

Engine light could be from the spitting and sputtering, sounds to me like maybe bad spark plug wires, possible an ecm issue, what kinda code is it giving you when the engine light comes on?
