Question about Cars & Trucks
MY MECHANIC SAID I NEED A NEW FUEL PUMP. CAR STUTTERS LIKE IT WILL CUT OFF. WHEN I PUSH ACCELERATOR IT GIVE A LITTLE KICK BACK BEFORE ACCELERATING. SMELL OF GAS AND CAN'T IDLE FOR LONG OR IT WILL STUTTER.
Can't guess at your vehicles issues
Be at the shop & see first hand what testing
is done & how the result were obtained
Smelling gas has nothing to do with a fuel pump,
unless the tank gasket leaks
Ask what tests resulted in that conclusion.

SOURCE: STUTTERS DURING ACCELERATION
throttle position sensor .. this lets the computer know just where your foot is on the gas .. It gets worn out in that position because that is where it is used the most. I would check it first then go from there... they are priced reasonable .. always start with the least expensive first then go from there. thanks Jerry holler if you need more

My was doing the same thing, it was an EGR valve and a misfire on the #2 cylinder which required a new spark plug and a coil pack

Try unplugging your Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAFS) - you'll find it on top of the metal body immediately after the air filter. I went through an 18 month ordeal - replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, dropped fuel tank and cleaned it, ran 55 gallons of fuel injector cleaner through the system - nothing! After reading some blogs on this car/engine, gave the MAFS unplug trick a try. The car instantly corrected itself (when you unplug this sensor, the engine control module reverts to factory default, allows sufficient fuel into the engine for unitterupted performance.) However, if this corrects your problem, it's only a temporary fix. Run it about 3 days - it you notice soot in the tailpipe, the factory default is running too rich. Replace the MAFS.
