When accelerating fast the engine cuts out suddenly then returns to normal multiple times. If I try to accelerate at a lower pace then it works fine. It feels like an electronic problem

Engine ECU is provided with a high RPM ignition cut off. Perhaps that is what is confusing you. When you accelerate at a fast rate, probably you get higher RPM's and the ECU cuts the ignition to protect the engine from damage.

SOURCE: Honda CRV '99 Deep engine noise. Feels like I'm pulling weight

Could be the cat but that doesn't usually make the car noisy. Your muffler may have come apart inside and is blocking the flow of the exhaust. Have the whole exhaust system, including the cat checked out. I would probably have the oxygen sensor and spark plugs replaced as well just because they're old (I'm guessing) and a damaged cat or poor mileage can be caused by these

I have a gti golf problem is loss of power when pulling away then it will go ok when you put your foot down ive changed fuel filter x air flow meter it goes better but its still not right


Could be several things, weak fuel pump (failing), , or fuel pressure regulator ,Often, the engine will stall out during a fast accelerating, or suddenly jump and accelerate more quickly than you intended. It also might take more effort than usual to get your car to accelerate, and when it does, the acceleration will happen much more slowly than normally. if you have bad plugs or wires. good-day!

Amber warning light on (steering assist failure)


Check for error codes which can be the best indicator to the fault. You can start to suspect the fuel, the fuel filter , the fuel pump , a drop in fuel pressure at higher RPM. ALso check for problems in the electronic ignition section which can show faults at higher RPM.

I have a 2001 2500 Dodge Ram Van with a 5.2 engine. If if do not accelerate hard, the transmission shifts fine. If I accelerate hard, the transmission seems to not want to shift until I relieve pressure...


On most of these type vehicles, with the heavy duty and lower geared transmissions this is normal, when accelerateing hard it will stay in lower gear longer...

95 Regal 3.8 Runs great but today started


Try a new distributor cap and rotor button,they are known problem areas.If the problem is not in the distributor then you will likely need to replace the catalytic converter,a plugged converter will not let the engine get to full horse power because it can't get rid of the fuel as fast as it is coming into the engine,which is not a problem for the engine at lower rpms but it is a problem when you need the power.

My check engine light comes on and my car will not accelerate fast and acts like it wants to cut off and sputters. This lasts for a couple of times I start the engine and than goes away and than comes back...


This sounds like a problem with the throttle position sensor. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes will narrow down the cause of the problem and should eliminate the need for speculation. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Engine will not idle and run when starting in cold weather


Have a mechanic take a look at your throttle position sensor and engine idle sensor. Make him manually adjust them as opposed to just putting in new ones. It may require that you have to have a higher idle than normal. Your underlying cause is going to be that I am sure you have a lot of miles on your engine.
