You could have a bad spark plug. May just need plugs and wires but be sure to gap the plugs. If the check engine light is on have the codes checked if it's using a lot of gas it could be he oxygen sensor.

SOURCE: 1991 eldorado lack of power,

check your rotor under your distributor cap if you have one. That should be replace. Also did you check your mass air flow sensor. you can buy a special spray to clean it out. Do you have a throttle body, if so it is so easy to pull and clean it out. Check your throtle body sensor.

there are a lot of auto part stores and garages that will do free computer checks now. Take advantage of this.

your definately on the right path, just keep digging. Also does your car have a turbo, this could be your problem.

SOURCE: loss of power

I have the same problem on a s320 cdi, gearbox goes into limp mode and wont rev above or kickdown, at the 1st chance i get to stop i put into park or neutral gear turn off the engine and re-start and then everthing is fine, I read that if you put a new battery on it may solve the problem, it's something to do with the voltage dropping below 10.4 volts. Then it sends a message to e.c.u. that puts your gearbox into limp mode. Hope this will work for you. MERKY

SOURCE: 2005 Pontiac Sunfire is missing and lack the power (it wants to gain power but powers down (jumps)

I suspect you needto relace your coil pack. You are probably not running on all 4. the engine will run but only on 2 cylinders.
If missing replace coil pack. they go regularily on the 03/05 F style engines. You should be able to locate a good used one at a wreckers.

Hi I got a Toyota corolla 160i gle and it was parked very long so wen i started it wen ideling no smoke BT wen hit da fuel it smokes and on take off BT wen driving it does nt smoke

Generally, it may smoke on startup for a few seconds then quit and seem to run fine, then you hit the gas and it smokes again, so Is it white smoke gray smoke or blue smoke? Because IMO it's either a bad head gasket, bad valve guides, rings are going bad ot dumping to much fuel into carb or injectors.

Most likely a coolant system Problem. Could be a cooling fan,that is supposed to come on when the ac compressor is turned on, Could be a sensor that controls the fan or wiring. Could just be restricted air flow, dirty radiator, Low coolant, collapsed radiator hose. Thats the most likely causes good luck.

My 2003 caravan (62,000) miles have problems with starting the vehicle. When 1st and 2nd attempt, the engins rotates but does not start. It starts perfectly on the third attempt. I just noticed the engine...

sounds like a fuel problem. check fuel filter for clogging, it may be blocking the fuel flow. also check and clean air filter if need be. if that does not do it. try spraying and cleaning throttle body with carb cleaner especially at throttle plate. it may have carbon deposits around it! have a good day!!

Toyota Carina loss of power

lets start with the heating up problem!
replacing the thermostat and relay has nothing to do with it. common causes of heating up are improper valve setting timing, mismatch air-fuel ratio, worn-out piston rings, poor oil flow, poor radiator coolant flow.
i suppose you have changed your car motor oil. recheck if its on the right amount.

loss of power:
Common Causes
loose piston rings (causing insufficient compression: indications fog like smoke), air-fuel ratio incorrect, blockage in air intake.

check also for air on the fuel hoses if you experience often jurking problems regularly clean fuel strainers or filters.

2001 elantra lack of power

Confirm ur fuel pump is working. Ensure ur pickup tube is not blocked. Then ensure u did not leave a rag or parts in the manifold tubes. Not laughing it happens. Is the distributor in the right spot. Etc etc. Did u rehook the alt up if removed . Is tje battery fully charged. And lastly is the fuel flowing and freash. Then recheck your work did u replace all parts right. Any air in the head gasket will make the fuel /air mixture off.
Good luck
