Your vehicle explained it all to you. Take the vehicle in for maintenance. Your car is cutting engine power until your problem is repaired.

SOURCE: my truck acts like it is starving for gas

Replace the fuel filter as the fist action. Often this is charged for - but not done on a service, and if blocked will starve the engine. Just done mine after 3 years - would not believe the cr@p that was in it.

Try again.

If not much difference, check the fuel pump in the tank, and any cables to it.
If this fails, the engine needs to **** the fuel more - and can lead to starvation problems too.

Change the air filter every year, as this is cheap and will give you better MPG anyway.

SOURCE: wrench light

It may be that your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) is bad or dirty. Try cleaning it, and if that doesn't work, then replace it. It goes for about $45, but if you take it to the stealership they'll run you over $200.
I had the same problem and got it fixed. Takes a couple of minutes.

SOURCE: 1995 F150 bucking and hesitating

look at the EGR should move freely..listen for hissing sound of an air leak,from the intake manifold...with that kind of mileage,it is likely .check the wiring on all the sensors,the map ,air flow,coolant temp,and the idle air speed controller on the throttle body.

2010 Ford escape hybrid having wrench dash light.Gas mpg has dropped. Seems to take high rpm for power at times Has been very hot temps outside. If I shut car off and back on, dash light disappears.

Try changing the inline fuel filter if you have not done so in a long time. Check fuel pump pressure, there should be a place under the hood on gas line where you can attach a proper gauge. If you do not have one, most autoparts sellers loan tools, or check it for free. The pump may be bad or the strainer on pump plugged.

Van idles fine but when going the the road giving it gas it acts as if it isn't getting the proper gas ... it back fires....repleaced fuel filter and pump, crank and cam sensior

sounds like the timing is off. check the firing order to be sure your plug wires are on the correct positions on the coil packs. if that checks out, possibly a timing chain may need replaced. i hope this helps

What would cause my car to all the sudden act as if it were filled with bad gas been great car today i get in it hesitates to star then when it does it spits and chuggs and acts like it is going to back...

The " white cloud " from the exhaust sounds like antifreeze in the combustion chamber. What engine is in it? Does it turn over when you try to start it? Did the "white cloud" have a sweet smell to it?

2000 Cougar - Car hesitates, acts like no gas getting to it,

you may need to use a high octane gas to clean your injectors and replace the inline gas filter as this should cure the problem. On the wiper blades that is more than likeley the relay switch that is connected to them it should be located near the firewall on the driverside.

1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette. At times it seems

a bad tps sensor will cause: transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, surge while cruising down highway. to check, remove connector from tps, use a ohms meter and probe center and any one of the other connectors,move throttle slow. if it jumps or does not stay steady while moving throttle, its bad. if the needle on ohms meter moves good then the tps is ok. move throttle plate slowly.

94 Carava Acts like its out of gas possible electrical brownout

The cause of the low compression could be a valve is not completly sealing or bad piston rings. Depending on weather you have blue smoke out the exaust. If not then I'm sure you have a valve that is not completly sealing. Not some thing to just let go, first try Z-Max. Z-max helps get rid of carbon deposits in the engine.

The relays that you hear clicking away are the problem Im sure. more than one occasion I have seen the relays go out and cause this problem.

The reason the lights dim and the blower slows is the reduction of voltage the alternator is puting out. When the other problem is fixed then this new one will dissappear.

Try cleaning the throttle position sensor like you said. If the contact is dirty it will not run right.

Please let me know if your problems presist.

Thanks, Charlie
