Hi

This sounds decidedly like a faulty or dirty MAF sensor, which is located right next to the air filter box.

Unplug the wiring plug to the MAF and if all or most of the power is restored then you either need to clean or renew the MAF sensor.

SOURCE: My van has no power when I press the accelerator

Sounds to me that you have an issue with the vacuum. you need to check all lines, make sure none of them are cracked. sensors in the coolant system can get 'gummy', when this occurs the computer will think it is either running colder or hotter than it really is, so maybe have the system flushed. a good way to tell it is a vacuum leak is if when you are cold idle and it is very fast,

2001 Buick Lesabre starts normal everyday. Car sits three days or more will not start unless you put the accelerator pedal down at least twice


put the accelerator pedal down at least twice ? While cranking the engine ? key on ? what ? Your vehicle has electronic fuel injection ,not a carburator . Pushing the gas pedal doesn't do anything The only thing if pushing the gas pedal to the foor an holding it there will put it into clear flood mode , shutting off the fuel injectors .

I have problems with my 1999 mercedes-benz ML320. minutes after ignition, when driving at low speed or high speed acceleration note failure. push the accelerator pedal fully and have no adequate response....


Check fuel pressure and flow. Symptoms resemble clogged filter or faulty fuel pump. Faulty fuel pumps run for a time before failing to provide proper pressure; a faulty fuel filter may function for a brief time before debris clogs it each time the engine is started...

sounds like engine need some cuddle :) I mean, first thing to do is to check engine compression ratio. If that is ok, then make sure carb adjustments are correct and all fuel lines ar clean. Good luck!

My 88peterbilt 15 speed is slippin in low range and in the last 2 gears what might be the problem


Most likely a clutch problem. What, if anything, has changed recently? Does the clutch have 25 years of use, or has it been replaced? Is there some "free play" at the top of the clutch pedal travel? If not, you might try adjusting the clutch pedal to bell housing linkage to create such travel, just to make sure you are getting all the clutch pressure that its pressure plate can provide.
It slips in low gear because that uses the most engine force to accelerate from a stop. As you shift up, you minimize the clutch load because you wait until the engine is revved up, indicating the acceleration load between shifts is not too great. In the highest gears you are driving at highway speed using very little power from the engine to maintain that speed. If you come to a slight upgrade, not enough to require downshifting, you add extra load, again more that the worn clutch can pass through to the axle.
Do you "slip" the clutch or "ride it" when starting or driving? We minimize clutch wear by using the lowest gear that allows the truck to start without using the fuel pedal. This may be how and why you wore out your clutch.
If you can't help the problem by adjusting the external linkage, you most likely need to replace the clutch. If you are unsure, try having a competent truck mechanic evaluate it first.

98 chevy sub. k2500 to accelerate poorly


Likely a clogged fuel filter or defective fuel pump. Confirm correct fuel pressure with a gauge. If the pressure is low, remove the fuel filter and check for obstruction. If it's hard to blow through it, replace it with a new filter. Then retest the fuel pressure. If pressure is still low, then it's likely that you have a defective fuel pump.

2000 saab 93. Slow acceleration out of gears, especially first.


Car picks up speed if you accelerate slowly, but the engine races, with minimal speed increase of the vehicle, when the throttle pedal is pushed harder? I'm not aware of the typical layout of the Saab, so while these things below are what I would suggest you look at... Not all will apply. Note that if the clutch plate is worn or otherwise slipping, the more you race the engine, the sooner will you burn off any remaining clutch life. Take things easy 'till you have a solution..... On any vehicle, this is a classic sign of a worn, damaged, or out of adjustment clutch. Or Possibly oil contamination from a leaking crankshaft rear oil seal. It causes a glaze on the linings of the driven plate and loses friction. Or The clutch pedal is not returning to it's normal rest position when released. Check for objects trapped between the pedal and the vehicle surfaces. Or The cable (if used)may be binding, thus the clutch doesn't fully return. It may be out of adjustment. Check for adjusting points at the cable ends. If no slack exists in the cable, it appears as though the clutch is worn. The clutch may be self adjusting. It's possible for self adjusters to seize. Or The hydraulic system (if used),has sticking cylinders. You may be able to clean and reuse the cylinders....

Low idiling no power


Similar thing happened to me, but it ended up being a clutch on its last legs....Since you have an automatic, I'd guess its your Mass Air Flow sensor or throttlr body.
