2001 2.4 liter alero has no accleration and shakes at a stop

Very possible that the fuel pump is starting to act up. I sell a TON of these pumps to local shops. Probably one of the top 3 pumps I sell. I recommend spending the extra money on a good Delphi pump on this as well as I have seen a lot of aftermarket ones not last in this application.

95 Dodge Neon 2.0 4cyl The car starts fine, and even drives fine, but for some reason while idling, if I so much as touch the accelerator with my fingertip, the car revs up real high for about 5 seconds,...

sounds like you are having problems with the throttle valve cable trying to stick. check to see with the engine turned off to see by pressing down on acclerator pedal to the floor and releasing it quickly. if it shows to be slow in returning then you need to replace cable on throttle body. hope this will help you!!!

Engine stalls when you acclerate acts as if its getting no gas fuel pump and fuel filter have been changed

If the car starts and runs well, and then after about 20 MPH it acts like it's idleing, looses compression, and then the rpms jump really high depress the accelerator and see if it catches then then it should run semi nornally (maybe whining a bit, or sounds like a band whipping). You need to check your transmission fluid, this is the most common problem. Soon after you'll lose reverse, and then transmission damaged and needs an overhaul.

Change your sparkplugs would be a good start,
check your oil levels,
make sure fan belts are tight.
replace or clean fuel filter.

Timing belt broke. installed one but has no power but starts ok and idles rough. where can i get free diagram of how to set timine on my vehicle??

Did you recheck the (valve) timing marks after installing the new belt? On most vehicles, it is wise to turn over the engine by hand a couple of revolutions and recheck them before starting since it is pretty easy to be one notch off. I lowered the asking price (of $7000) by $3500 on a used vehicle some years ago since it had no accleration but lots of torque due to an improperly installed timing belt. I stopped on the way home and reset the belt and dorve on as a happy ****.

I have a 02 Sport Trac that starts and idles fine but when I put it in gear and try to acclerate it just dies and has a strong odor of rotten eggs if I let off gas and gently acclerate it will do about...

That right you nailed it 100% go to the muffler shop and get it fixed. BUT if you want it is easy to test remove the O2 sensor before the cat and see if there is an improvement in power. If there is then leave them out and that will allow you to safely get to the muffler shop and advod towing it up there.

2000 ford explorer 4.0 x-engine is stalling, missing and lose power while driving

I personally would check the fuel pressure. Then I would go back to the coil. I have seen brand new bad coils out of the box. The symptoms of a loss of power point to this component, especially if the car idles well, but loses power when accelerating. Please do not rate this reply - we all are left to grasp at straws since you have changed pretty much everything. Good Luck. Please post the final fix of the problem.
