It could be the camshaft sensor or your throttle position sensor

I have a 2002 Dodge Stratus 3.0, when accelerating the engine chugs and engine light flashes. I heard it's a bad catalytic converter, is this true?

A plugged converter will cause a NO power situation where the vehicle is unable to expell exhaust gasses and cause poor acceleration. A flashing engine light is the result of a misfire. ( spark plug/coil/injector/wiring ). The engine should still be able to accelerate but will have a noticeable hesitation while doing so

Rough idle, acceleration and check engine light went from being on to flashing on and off

Use a ODB-2 meter to read the problem code. That will give you a clue on what to look for next.

Sputtering engine while in passing gear

At 150000 miles the plugs start to fail under hard acceleration the higher compression blows out the spark before it ignites the fuel. Random cylinder misfire causes the check engine light to come on. change the plugs!

2000 ford explorer Have a p0305 code started a while back when accelerating to pass a car the truck would **** and the check engine light would blink but once i take foot of the gas it would go back to...

A PO305 code is for a Cylinder #5 misfire code. This would definitely cause a lack of power when passing and would cause the check engine light to blink when you are into the throttle and then stop once you let off the throttle. This could be caused by a faulty coil pack or a bad spark plug for that cylinder. I dont know which engine you have in this vehicle, but if each spark plug has its own coil, you can try unplugging the coil pack for cylinder # 5 while the vehicle is running and if it changes the way it runs then the coil pack is probably good, but if there is no change when you unplug the electrical connector, there is a good chance the coil pack is bad. It is not unusual for these coil packs to burn out.

Hope this helps... if there is anything further i can help you with, please feel free to ask.

I just had a new catalytic converter, and spark plugs/wires put on my 2002 impala v6 3.4L. I drove it about 10 miles just fine, and now when I try to accelerate the engine loses power, starts shuddering...

The blinking engine light is a definite sign that vehicle is misfiring.I would check and make sure none of the wires came loose.You can also check the plugs to make sure none were cracked during installation.If you have access to a scan tool it should tell you exactly what cylinder or cylinders are misfiring.

alot of times the code you read is not the source of the problem, i suggest you check wiring to every 5 volt refference sensor on this vehicle. alot of times the a/c high pressure switch wires short approx. 2 in. inside the loom and take out the whole 5 volt ref.signal, causing multiple gohst codes, before you spend anything, unplug any 5v. sensor eg. t.p.s. and wiggle wires at all sensors while testing for 5v at t.p.s. hope this helps, as a former chrysler tech. i have been fooled by theese codes.

97 concorde with 3.5 engine @ 40 to 45 mph it starts bucking .

Computer firmware needs upgrade

Take your car to a Chrysler dealer shop and have them update the transmission program.As your tranny wears it loses it shift point and stutters between 40 - 45 mph looking for the right gear to change to..Had same problem in 94 Concorde and 94 T&C minivan.Reprogramming tranny fixed both cars.
