Hi, this is poor fuel circulation that is caused by a dirty or clogged fuel filter. i recommend changing the filter and replacing the pump as well. you can also add some fuel tank/injector cleaner. this solution will scrub the intake and fuel tank and lines, getting rid of those harmful deposits that tend to be in our fuel supply.

I have a 96 ford explorer, will start and idle fine , sometimes it will accelerate fine then I will loose RPM/speed and have to pull off road sputter out til it dies. press gas to raise rpm nothing


Try the fuel filter. If that is not a problem then the other thing I would suggest is to check the fuel pump. If the pressure is being lost in the fuel pump then your car will lose it's acceleration.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Engine sputters and sometimes dies.


As for the engine, try replacing the fuel pressure regulator. If it accelerates good but when you decelerate it dies, it's the FPR.

We have codes P0171, P0191, P0174, P2198. The car is sluggish on acceleration and the engine will sometimes die. Sometimes runs fine and then it will have a gallop during acceleration. Cleared check...


I would start by looking for a broken vacuum hoses. That would cause 2 of the codes. The other 2198 is stating that the o2 is stuck rich. Look for the vacuum leak and let me know when you have that or if you do not find one.

1995 pontiac bonneville stalls


I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.

I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.
