Throttle position sensor bad,or catylitic converter plugged, which will get very hot and hiss as the exhaust gases trying to escape. Could also be a speed sensor. Check engine codes. A 5.00 device is available on Ebay which gives you a tester for your bluetooth laptop or Android phone. IT's ELM 327 device. or goto www.kijiji.com and find local mechanic to test codes for say 10 bucks. rather than 90 at a dealer.

SOURCE: Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration

It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.

no problem. If you are getting that low of voltage on a load then you might want to test the alternator as well to make sure it is running at capacity.

SOURCE: car won't pick up speed on acceleration

You're not getting enough fuel. You should check your fuel pressure. If you have enough fuel pressure, your injectors are probably clogged up. Run a lot of fuel cleaner through your tank when you put gas in and see if it makes any difference. Lucas fuel treatment is the best to use.

SOURCE: idles but no acceleration?

Their are a few things that would cause that to happen. Check your plug wires to be sure they are on tight. If you havn't had a tune up in a while I would definately replace the wires and spark plugs. Both are things that cause those problems. I don't what you are driving but if it is newer you also might have a bad ignition module. If you have no distributor then you will have those instead. Their also is the possibility of the timing being off. While this tends not to happen by itself it could happen if your timing belt needs to be replaced. When the belt strecthes over time and use it can cause to throw the timing off. I hope this helped you out. It woulod be appreciatted if you could rate my answer. Thanks, MIKE-

Rough engine idle under heavy acceleration. After a heavy rain, I started the car and the idle was terribly rough. Changed out the spark plugs and wires. Its much better but the condition still exists...


heh, you might want to change the title here as I am pretty sure you cant idle under heavy acceleration.
However I think you were on the right track with the plugs and wires. You didnt mention the cap though and that is usually the biggest culprit in damp weather. Put a new cap and rotor on it and see if that doesnt do the trick.

My 1994 nissan hardbody 2.4liter has a high idle problem


hi,the accelerator pedal can be blocked, which causes it to have a high idle.well what you have to do is to see for the cable for the accelerator, which come on the injector pump.now you will see the cable attach to a rack on the injector pump,this rack has a movement position ,when you press the accelerator pedal it moves to the accelerate position.now what you have to do is to move the accelerator rack to the decelerate position,then after doing that start the engine,see the idle what it give.it should be lower now,put some penetrate oil to the accelerator rack,for the move to be free.hope that help you

Rough idle / varying oil pressure when accelerating


Ok not to keen on newer vehicles actually prefer the carburated ones, but oil pressure is supposed increase on your gauge when accelerating. If it wasn't going up before and just staying at 40 the needle might have been stuck. But idle should be 40 lbs and when you work the moter (reving or driving down the road) the guage should show an increase for every 1000 rpm above idle. Second if you can get a hand held scanner (bought mine off ebay for $30) check for any codes in your computer you will probably find that you either have a bank running wrong or some other sensor that needs to be changed. I'd go with getting my own scanner it saves alot of money and time, garages make their money here.
