    I have a 1997 mazda metro 121. Its lacking accelaration. Using twice the fuel. Could it be the fuel filter or timing belt? Also jolts a bit when accelarating up the gears .

Car jerks hard taking off


Since you\'re old school I would think you\'ve already checked the normal stuff like the fluid level in the transmission. If this is good, has the transmission ever been serviced? I\'m not familiar with your vehicle so if it has a filter it could be that is partially clogged, Does the fluid have a strong smell to it? Does is feel absolutely smooth or can you feel or see little flecks of something in it. You may solve this by dropping the pan and replacing the filter. But if that is the problem it will only be temporary as if there is debris in the pan you are ready for a rebuild.The sooner you do it, the better before you have hard part damage. Another possibility is a bad solenoid in the tramsission that isn\'t sensing the pressure until it is high enough to jerk when it kicks into gear. Again to even check this though you need a transmission guy to pull it and look it over. Sorry guy.

Bogs down with little acceleration


run fault codes and look for accelerator position sensor and MAF/MAP problems. Have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for pump, pressure regulator and filter problems.

1993 civic bogs when acceleratoring


I'd replace the fuel filter. It's easiest if you use a toggle joint adapter with your socket and ratchet.

Sluggish acceleration, frequent jerking and engine knock at high RPM


Sounds to me like the timing is off! it COULD be bad gas though! run that tank through, and refill, then see how it feels!

96 Jimmy bogs down when I accelerate hard


Sounds like the fuel filter is getting clogged. It will flow enough fuel for normal driving, but can't supply fuel for full throttle acceleration, causing the engine to bog down. Replacing the fuel filter with a new one should fix the problem.

Car feels like it's bogging down during acceleration, also sort of stutters starting at 45 mph and progressively gets worse above that. I had the radiator, timing belt, and water pump replaced last week....


try replacing your fuel filter, With big temperature swings this time of year, condensation (water) forms in fuel tank, Prior to changing fuel filter run a bottle of STP gas treatment or a good injector cleaner through it.

I have a 2005 Chevy Uplander, and when driving on the highway at about 60-65, the van occasionally drops RPM's and when you press the gas harder, it recovers without any jerking or anything. The same...


This is a rare one and can be tricky. Since your rpm gauge rises back up when you increase your acceleration slightly but you feel no jerking of acceleration then this tells me that a speed/rpm senser either has a bad connecton or the sensor itself is going bad when the engine reaches an optimum heat while driveing on the highway. Since you feel no acceleration when you slightly press the accelerator down but yet the rpm gauge is increasing back to normal, the throttle body sensor may be compensating for the failed speed sensor/failed sensor connector. Please get your uplander diagnosed properly first to confim this.
