SOURCE: Engine sputters when giving gas, has a hard time accelerating

Have the cam sensor and/or crankshaft sensor checked. They could be going bad.

Check MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR , try to get a used one and fit to the car , it is very easy to install. And by the way the MASS is the part that is in connection with the air filter , the one that has an electrical connector. When installing make sure that it is tight and no leaks. This answer was based on your description and code supplied hope this would help

I disagree with changing the MAF sensor. I had the same problem for about 4 years until today on my 2000 s10 4.3 4wd 125K. It runs like new, and all i did was paid 6 bucks for a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner from auto zone. Try this!! it was awesome the results

I have 2000 Oldsmobie Bravada that spits and sputters every time I hit the gas. I've had an induction, transmission flush, tune up (all new wires and spark plugs), new EGR valve, new throttle position...


I went through this problem, and did everything you did, even the SeaFoam. Turns out, the new distributor caps I bought were defective. I switched it out to another brand, worked for a day and then sputtered again. I read somewhere that (FOR THIS VEHICLE) aftermarket caps and rotors aren't manufactured correctly, causing arcing. Switched the cap and rotor to AC Delco brand, and all ran good, going on 1 year now with no problems.

bad need of a tuneup? like new spark plugs, ?

this code can just be a victim. for sure , with misfire.
means 02 sensor stuck at rich,
what is water temp in engine coolant, at failure? less than 150F?
could be lots of things.
leaking injectors, bad fuel.
injector sticking> causing misfire.
id use a scan tool and watch all sensor when it fails.
too high fuel pressure.
misfires cold, but only luke warm cold starts not fully cold.

just one DTC, no P0300 or 30x misfire codes, not even P0300 pendings?

1991 Nissan maxima hesitates


Best guess is O2 sensor is reading too much unburned fue in the exhaust for some reason and leaning out the fuel flow to compensate. Runs when you throw more throttle at it but leans out as you try to hold steady speed. Should throw a code though.

If You Have A OBD2 Code Reader,It Should Give You A Code And Tell You The Actual Problem,It Almost Sounds Like The Crankshaft Position Sensor Is Not Working Right,That Will Control Your Timing And If It Goes Out,You Will Get The Sputtering And Backfiring.Good Luck....

Got up this morning and started my 2004 olds bravada to see the ''reduced engine power'' light on and the ''service engine soon'' light on! Had just got a full tank of gas from Safeway, so thinking it was...


Is the check engine light on also? Your bravada is in limp mode (it is restricted to 2k rpm to protect the engine from damage, due to a problem), something is going on, so go back to auto zone and have them check for any codes (free service). They can tell you what the codes mean and suggest what you should do. If you have questions, post them here with the code #'s.
