I would suggest changing the fuel filter. The engine seems to be starving for fuel and if the filter is pulgged, the engine will bog down under load. Then the engine will run better when coasting because the fuel pressure will build up again.

Engine runs good but when you put it in gear it wont run properly it lacks power for a ford expidition 2001

If it´s from Zero speed, accellaraing, and no power, and considering you don´t mess with car, just check fuel filter.
More data is needed to give more precise information, like engine RPM, tubo or not, diesel os gas, etc. Please supply more info...and as more it comes, the more we are able to help!!

Sounds like a good tune-up and add a cleaner to your gas to keep the injectors clean.It will also help you on fuel.Camaro's vibrate when they go through transitions between gears.You should feel a pull to your back when accelerating.As you stated,"Ride it out and it will "come back" For a while.."If you are talking once you get to top speed, ease off the throttle and the power will come back to you.Also, make sure you keep a fresh oil change.Camaro's are high performance vehicles, so they will burn oil quicker. Have a nice day James

96 dodge neon, Loss of power, check engine light

check your fuel pressure, should be 40lbs+ at idle. If you dont know how to do this, have a friend or a shop check it for you. I had same problem, no power at all would barely run ect,, turned out to be fuel pump.
