Blocked injector jets or fuel line, could be restricted by sediment from fuel tank (this often happens when you let fuel run low, it sucks up minute dirt settled on tank floor)....check oil for white gunk around inside of cap (water in oil) ..... make sure all HT leads are good and earth connections sound...

ENGINE SPUTTERING WHEN I GET ON THE GAS PEDAL, NOT ALL THE TIME JUST WHEN I PUNCH IT.


Spark plugs also cause an engine to sputter when oil has come into contact with the spark plug well. One diagnoses this by testing the spark plugs and visually inspecting the well. If the car is fuel injected, a blocked or malfunctioning fuel injector might be causing the problem.

Engine sputters when accelerating


The flashing light means the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. And get the plugs replaced.

Car chokes and sputters until up to speed. Replaced fuel filter a year ago?


if your car is still using a carburetor, clean the carburetor first. If it is already Fuel injected, clean your MAF sensor.

also, it is ideal to replace your fuel filter everytime you do a change oil (normally this is done every 6 months)

Hi,
Could be ignition coils failing or injectors. Don't know the mileage on your car, but could be worn out engine too. Change your oil often?

The type of oil should be rigt on the oil cap..
If not - should be 5W-30

Trani fluid..
THIS IS A IMPORTANT and very misunderstood issue.

You should really visit http://www.allpar.com/fix/trans.html

if you have a four-speed or five-speed Chrysler automatic. Even most three-speed
automatics are required to use ATF+4.

Dear anew32, Wed 2-11-2009 3:43am EST (USA)

Do you often run your gas tank to near empty?
If so.......
This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling and rough riding!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!
Good Luck!
