98 ford zx2 2.0 dohc stalls out woulnt idle long & doesnt pick up power when you push gas if you push gas fast will backfire.will gain rpms if gas is pushed slow

It sounds like you may have a clogged-up catalytic converter. Try cracking the exhaust loose at the flange in front of the engine where the Catalytic converter bolts to the exhaust manifold. You don't have to take it all the way down, just 1/2" or so. You may have to take the bolt loose on the bracket where the pipe mounts to the oil pan to get the cat to drop down. After you get it down a ways, start it up and see if it runs better. (It will be very loud) If it idles and accelerates without dying or backfiring, then your cat is clogged up.

Hard to start.When running,Will "bog"out when

You may have a fuel issue the cheapest thing to do is a simple fuel filter replacement an old filter can cause backups in the gas line. Also check to make sure your air cleaner assembly is fully hooked up and no hoses or clamps are loose. less air cause these same symptoms.

I have a 1986 gmc jimmy 2.8l and it lacks power when you push the gas. i took it to a shop they said it could be a grounding issue to the fuel sending unit or the cpu is all jacked up what do you think...

hi sorry for the info you got, sounds like there could be a few things i would check before the advice given. change fuel filter, a partially clogged filter will not allow enough gas through, also if air filter is dirty or mass air flow sensor is dirty this can happen as well, a clogged exhaust whether muffler or cat convertor can cause issues as well. spark plug wires that are old break down under load as well. timing could be off a bit due to a worn belt/chain usually belt.. also bad gas with low octane can cause lack of power.. just some ideas i hope help you out....good luck...

Sometimes when i press the gas pedal on my 99 accord all the way down it acts like its needs gas. What could it be?

Hi there,

For an engine to work properly, the fuel air mix must be within certain parameters. Too much fuel uses up the available air before the all the fuel is burned and causes the engine to 'stumble' (a momentary lack of power until the fuel/air ratio has been restored). Flooring the pedal can certainly cause these symptoms.

When this happens, it's lack of air, not gas that causes it. Check your air filter as a possible cause, it may need to be replaced.

Sputters then dies

Most likely a lack of fuel, check the fuel filter first.

Car losing compression

I doubt u are "loosing compression" more likely a sensor failure is causing a loss of power, go to any Kragen or Autozone and have them run a OBD 2 trouble code test, it is free, then post the code back here.
