Thats a fuel related defect.empty your fuel tank then put in new fuel from a different gas station! if the problem continues then have the fuel tank cap replaced!!!!!! it might be blocked such that its building pressure in the tank!

2005 navigator chugs when driving


If this vehicle has a double overhead cam, labeled DOHC on the engine covers, it can have a "Cam Phaser" problem. The chugging is caused by the cam timing being mismatched.
A sound is often produced by the engine such that it mimics a Diesel engine and the sound disappears above 2000rpm.
There is a lot of reading material about this defect on the Internet. Many other potential problems would usually be triggering a "check engine" light. Even a bad EGR valve would eventually show up.
About all that is left would be a fuel pressure problem, sometimes caused by missed reading on a crankshaft sensor.
Let me know of the cure once you try these.

Why is my Accord chugging when I accelerate and the check engine light coming on ?


The fuel filter is probably full of metal too. (fuel starvation) replace it.

My Mazda MPV randomly begins to "chug" and act like it will die at a stop. the check engine light comes on. Started about 6 months ago. Seems to happen more when it rains. If I tighten the gas cap it stops...


the gas cap and check engine light thing are related in terms of the EVAP system, or the evaporative emisions system. This is NOT where your surge, or "chug" is coming from. The surge could be coming from a Exhaust Gas Recurculation valve that is starting to bind or "hang up" a bit. DO you notice this happens more at lights, or when coming to a stop? if so it could be an idle air control vavle.
