SOURCE: 96 Chevy Cavalier brake pedal to the floor

First check your brake fluid.
Either you have a failing brake booster, or you have developed a leak in one of your brake lines. If your brake line is leaking, it should be pretty evident, i.e. oily looking substance sprayed underneath the vehicle or in the wheel wells, if the booster is leaking (the large black/silver almost bowl shaped thing directly in front of the driver under the hood against the back wall) there will most likely be fluid dripping down the firewall below it, if your brake fluid is extremely low/empty, you probably have a leak, that could be at the booster or on a line, or even at the caliper/drum. If it is empty (which can make your ABS light, light up) then you have yourself a leak. Also, if the fluid is really low, you could try adding some, although you will have air in the lines if it was low enough to floor the brake, but you might be able to find the leak if you refill the fluid and cause it to spray from the leak again. Have someone watch under the vehicle while you do this.

Engine sputtering idle


Possibly a leaky injector bleeding down the fuel pressure. First check fuel pressure at shutoff, start, and then when it's smooth. If it changes a lot, you would have to raise the fuel rail and power on the pump to see what is happening.

Acceleration problem


Could be a clogged fuel filter, could also be a slight crack in the throttle body gasket. get a spray bottle with water in it, set it to mist, while the vehicle idles, spray around the base of the throttle body, if it bogs down replace the throttle body gasket. Just curious, was it doing it before you changed the plugs and wires? If not make sure you have the firing order correct.

Engine sputtering on a 1988 GMC C1500 pickup


You did not say what the mileage is. Judging from the age, I would say it is pretty high. The issue most likely related to timing. The shaft that turns the distributors rotor cap has bushings on it and it also is driven by gears inside the engine. They wear out and the timing becomes off. Also you can get a lot of wear on the timing chain and gears at that age.

1996 audi a4 quattro seemed out of gas, fueled, now won't turn over but seems to want to


Does the fuel gage read any higher now that you put fuel in it? If so, It was probably out of gas like you suspected. However, running a vehicle out of gas is extremely ******* fuel pumps. If your fuel pump was worn, with a lot of miles, it is probably toast now.

Truck backfires and stalls when excellerated half way.


Sounds like the timing open the distributor and in there is a relector,is there alot of corrosion? This reluctor has a tendency to shift out of position causing the vehicle timing to retar,Another area to inspect is the MAP (manifold air pressure) .This sensor monitor engine load according to vacuum when this goes out you cant accelerate the vehicle and it sputters as the vehicle tries to accelerate,you need to check that the vacuum hose has not come off,or just failed

Engine Clugs and Sputter while driving up a hill


Check the fuel filter to see if it is plugged.
Remove the fuel filter, and blow air through it in the normal direction of fuel flow. You should be able to blow through it very easily. If it feels restricted, try blowing through it the opposite way, and if there is a lot of dirt coming out, you have found a common cause of this problem. Hope this helps.
