My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

Engine sputters in park and neutral but this problem disappears when the ac is running. Any thoughts?


Check for vacuum leaks. Fill a spray bottle with a few drops of d/w liquid and the rest with water. Start and run the engine. Spray around all vacuum lines and areas to where hoses may be going. If the engine r.p.m. increases, that's where your vacuum leak is. Stay away from electrical.

My 1995 Jetta is running fine without the ac on. After I turn the ac on it may drive fine for a while then all of a sudden it loses alot of power and spits and sputters. What could be the problem. Thanks


make sure your plugs and wires are in good condition.also fuel and air filter.the engine has to be well tuned up.because air conditioner compressor put a little load on engine.if engine is not well tuned.the AC will pull it down.cause it to lose power and run rough.

Low pick on uphill slope and low pick up with AC too


hello sir.

low pick up on uphill and low pick up with AC ON.

these both r general physics problem, due to the higher downforce on uphill the car will b having low pick up. n with AC 'ON' the AC will b using a part of fuel supply engine, hence with higher power on the AC, larger is the fuel sucked from the engine supply. hence the lesser is the fuel supply top the engine, thus low power output.

i requst u to please check your car performance with the car of same type, on the sane road, by yourself, then conclude that your car is not performing,

it happens with the age of the car too, with long run, ur car cluthes will b damaged, ur carborator, with low tire pressue, with low quality radiator oil, ur car engine may rise the temperature, thus reducing this power output.


surely their is no problem with your car.

a general check up with a local mechanic will surely fix it sir.

thank u .

if my soultion helped u, then plz give me a feedback.

02 impala.. AC Issue?


When your car acts up... tap on your Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) and if your car idles fine and stops sputtering while doing this replace your MAF sensor.

I think the air compressor is bad in the truck


If your refrigerant level is OK and the truck blows cold air your compressor should be fine, in which case the noise is probably coming from the AC clutch which isn't too expensive or difficult to replace. If it doesn't blow cold air, switch the AC on and watch the compressor. If the clutch engages, but the compressor doesn't turn, the drive belt will squeal loudly and probably start to smoke. In that case it is the compressor which is expensive to replace. Most vehicles have an AC bypass that will temporarily cut out the compressor clutch under heavy load. If you are going uphill with the AC on or accelerating heavily you might notice warm air coming out of the vents for a short period until you let off the gas.

It could be the fuel filter. Check fuel pressure and volume.
