Check for burnt intake/exhaust valves. Sounds like you have one or more not sealing correctly. Could possibly be a worn out distributor as well.

Peugeot 4007, 2011 2.2 diesel. Have fault code P2128. Engine missing when accelerator just beginning to be depressed. Any clues if the two are related?


your fault code is for Accelerator pedal position sensor/switch E high input. Your vehicle has a drive by wire throttle setup which means there is a wiring loom instead of a cable from the pedal to the engine and the pedal sensor is there to provide the engine ecu with the info of how much acceleration the driver is applying with his foot

Poor idle and no acceleration on a '91 GMC Sierra 1/2 ton p/u w/4.3l v6 manual trans


there is vital information missing here
to start with it is a v 6 so there will be 2--HO2S sensors one for each bank before the cat converter and 2 --O2ensors --one for each bank after the cat converter
there is a vast difference between HO2s and O2 sensors as each reports different information to the ECM
next slow acceleration can be accelerator position sensor or throttle position motor
every time you read the codes it cancels them so you have to run the vehicle for a few miles for codes to reappear
from the codes there can be up to 7 reasons for that code to appear so you don't pick on the first one as it could be another or a combination of others

1990 ford bronco idles fine when you accelerate the gas loses power and backfires through the intake


Fuel delivery problem, not enough fuel on acceleration could cause backfires. Many things cause backfires, mechanical and electronic. I need more info to give a better diagnosis. Did the problem happen all of a sudden or has the vehicle been running crappy for awhile.

- stumbles when stopped and accelerating at low speeds


ENGINE HESITATES WHILE ACCELERATION
LOSS OF ACCELERATION

Backfiring and miss in ford 4 liter


Hi Dwight, It would help to know more about your problem. What vehicle are you referring to? When does the backfire occur, during acceleration, deceleration, at a cruise speed, at idle? It would also help to know what vehicle, what engine and what fuel type? Regards John

1990 camry, flashing check engine light, backfiring with no acceleration when gas pedal is applied , engine runs fine at idle.


first you need to find out why the check engine light is on. Try a parts store and see if they will get the code from the computer that will tell you what sensor is bad. If you have not replaced an oxygen sensor by now that is probably what is wrong. If these are bad for too long you will damage the catalytic convertor and it will rattle when the engine is running. backfiring and no acceleration can come from the 02 sensor since this sets fuel delivery.

Rough idle, backfire on acceleration


check everything you can under the hood your air intake system all of it especially make sure all clamps are tight .. and make sure all vacuum hoses are good and not cracking or broken or just loose . you might run a little fuel cleaner through a tank of gas too cleaning the engine fuel system up some. just a few ideas..
