What could be wrong with my Toyota Echo if the engine chugs while idling, and the car loses power when accelerating (stalling out if accelerating too quickly)?


There are numerous things that will cause this problem. If the check engine light is on, have the codes checked to see if there is a problem the computer has found to cause this issue. Even without the check engine light on, there may be a code stored. You can also do a visual inspection under the hood for any disconnected hoses causing vacuum leaks. These are the best places to begin with diagnostics

Chugging and wont accelerate


My first guess would be low fuel pressure or a faulty throttle position sensor. The faulty sensor should turn the check engine light on.
I would check those things first.

2001 Taurus started chugging & wanted to stall while waiting at a stop light. Car did not have good power so we parked it. It popped no codes. Now the only way to keep it running is to constantly pedal...


get a friend with a hacksaw and a welder to chop it off and put a piece of straightpipe on it. it'll be fine. but first, unplug the mass air flow sensor and/ or the manifold absolute pressure sensor and see if they are fouled out first. check all sensors first.

Power loss / low idle speed


This could be a multitude of things but my first suggestion would be to change the spark plugs. They are cheap and can be bought at any auto parts store.
