    The check engine light has been on for 2yrs and I had a tune-up done on the car last year: I thought at first i had gotten some bad gas:I have put gas treatment in and upgrade to premium gas but car does not acceralate like it us to either; While drving & at idle the car has the putting noise.

    yes the check engine light was on before & after the tune-up. Also the fuel filter was replaced about a week ago & is still making the noise.

    the noise its making is it engine itself making it or component related to engine,does noise go away when u rev car at idle or becomes worst,when last time timing belt was serviced?

  • carhob May 11, 2010

    check engine light is on ecm has detected a problem scan ecm for code to pin point problem area,can be caused by a bad sensor ,blocked fuel filter!

Car is jerking and sputtering while driving.


Clogged fuel injectors (or carburetor if it is old enough) could be a problem, or a clogged fuel filter.

Kia sportage 2007 sputters when I drive jerks and this am as I tried to speed up it didn't seem to want to shift up just reving ??!! I changed allready pump belts and do many other parts what could it be ?...


sputters in the context if engine, means MISFIRING, is it?

for a transmission, they dont sputter. sorry

but can jerk, or snatch, (being caused by gears engaging way to late)

(aka, harsh shifting) the opposite of slip

but it can slip then engage, causes a jerk. or harsh shifting.

see?

they do 100 things wrong, mostly never to sputter.

they don\'t shift up or down

they slip. (bad tranny)

if engine sputters, its tune up time, (posted like 10,000 times here)

if the transmission has issues, have real mech test it and tell you

all the symptoms, and possible ideas.

why not?

the A/T is a very very complex electro /mechanical device.



sputter is a word best for engines. like chain saw with a bad spark plug it sputters along and stalls.

does your car stall?

1986 f150 4x4 5.0 manual runs and ides fine but when you accelerate and shift gears it jerks and sputters


I am curious to know what the scan told you when you originally checked it? A lot of people spend way more money than they should changing parts and guessing at the fix. Tell me a little more about the what the scan results.
