Question about Cars & Trucks

Takes gas good at an idle our of gear, but when you try to drive it it won't take gas because it bogs down. You can feather the gas and make it go but you can't make it accelerate. What's the problem?

    Changed the coolent temp sensor, IAC,and EGR. No difference. The exhaust is extremely hot and burns your hand after just 5 min of running. Could it be stopped up converter? 25 yr mechanic buy trade, but I'm stumped.

SOURCE: bogs down at high acceleration

Sounds like a plugged catylic convertor, GM has a Special Policy adjustment that covers the catylic convertors for 10 years or 120,000 miles (190,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. This is for 2001-2002 models with 3.4L or 3.8L engines. If you have a 3.8L engine you want to get this fixed soon, I have seen people drive these things so long with the convertor plugged that they melt a hole in the plastic intake plenum where the EGR port comes into the intake behind the throttle body.

Car idles fine, but sputters, bogs and dies if gas pedal is pressed.


new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.

I have a problem with my 1989 chevy pickup. When i bought it it ran good but had problems going in to passing gear. Now a bigger problem exists, when you start it it will idle for about 10 minutes and...


A common problem on these trucks with the symtoms you described is the gasket under the throttle body. It's about a $2 part. Ther's only three bolts that hold the throttle body on. You can leave everything attached to it and just lift it up about a quarter inch, slide the old gasket out, slide the new one in. It's worth a try.
