It can be a number of problems would need more info but well go with the most common need to check fuel pressure if low poss cause fuel filter clogging or fuel pump inline clogging the fuel filter is usually the problem with most stall loss of power ---if good while running check the exhaust if it feels like is choking out or low than possible cat converter clogging ---if good than check throttle body my be clogging ir need repair ---if good check egr valve my need cleaning or replacement the egr valve gets clogged with carbon also check or replace air filter these are the few most common problems that can cause a performance problem

SOURCE: no acceleration at high RPM's

It's probally the fuel cutoff.If it's in Park Or Nuetral this is a normal condition to protect the engine from overevving.If it doesn't do it in gear that's what it most likely is.hope this helps

SOURCE: 93 Saturn SL was running a little rough, would

sounds like you have some bad injectors. if your smelling fuel it sound like one of them are stuck open. that would cause it to run rough. i think the injectors are like 35 each i would put them in and run a fuel system cleaner and put a new fuel filter when you do all that.. if you do it yourself it should run you about 180 to 200. Its not that hard to do. If a shop was to do it it could cost up to 500

Stalls at stops sometimes hard to restart

Have it hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool ,check engine sensor data parameters . Fuel pressure test it as well ! Check for vacuum leaks .When it stalls have you try pushing on the gas pedal a little an then trying to start it then ? Not to the floor because this cuts off fuel injectors .

Peugeot 206 stalling, either cuts off or I floor the gas pedal

When you "floor the gas pedal" the computor goes into a bypass mode (emergency mode). This honestly sounds a lot like a problem I ran into a while back on a Dodge truck. Problem was a cracked intake manifold (plastic). Short version: vacuum leak.

A vacuum hose brokegoing into carb. cut some exses off car started but stalled again. got a new vacuum hose on it but now the car turns over but wont start?

Possible vapor lock, try using some starter fluid, spray just a touch in carb. Another thing, is keep gas pedal to floor, and trying to start. Do not pump pedal, just keep to floor as you crank over motor.

I have a 1998 Saturn SL. I have to almost floor the gas pedal to get it to fire up. Once it fires up, it dies?

fuel filter could be clogged,getting just enough gas to carb.
also check for leaks in line where air can get in.

I have a 1995 saturn sl1. when i push the clutch in it idles up to about 3k rpms. then it tries to dies. if it does die, i have too hold the gas pedal to the floor to start it again. any suggestions?

You know I had that problem on a 94SW, and replaced the Mass Air Flow doodad and the crank position sensor and that fixed it. Cannot tell you which item was the right one, neither are very expensive. My car however also had a gas odor to it indicating incomplete combustion.

To crank the car i have to press the gas pedal to the floor and it stalls when you take off and when you stop

It may be the IAC (Idle Air Control) Valve or the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor), you are better off to take it to a local mechanic to help you better diagnose the problem.

My jeep wont start. we checked the battery. the jeep will idle for a few seconds and then when you hit the gas it stalls

try starting it with the pedal pressed in a little and run it for a few seconds like that and put some injector cleaner in it. also if it stalled and wont restart then try pressing the pedal all the way to the floor because it could be flooded and that will cut off the fuel supply
