It's a sensor crazy world, but i'm guessing your problem is caused by something more simple. Spark plug wires, or a partially clogged fuel filter. If that doesn't solve it, check the EGR, and check for vacuum leaks . Broken , cracked or loose vacuum lines.

If the sputter got real bad, I could smell what smelled like weed eater gas inside the cabin. As you could also imagine, there is a loss of power.

Engine light on coughs and sputters when you step on the gas back fires in the manifold


Sounds like your throttle position sensor is gone, replace it with clean or new plugs and wires as it is know to bugger them up when it goes out.

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?

could be a lot of things. I personally would start with your vacuum lines... check for a leak somewhere. You can do that by spraying carb cleaner (if motor tries to die, you found your leak), or it could be a sensor, likely idle air control, mas air, etc.)

Multiple random miss fire


Now change the distributor. Get one from salvage or e-bay. Did the timing belt jumped a tooth or is it new. Vitally

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 engine sputters at low rpm


hello i am a independent shop owner and i recently had a 01' dodge 1500 5.2L engine and it seemed to have the same symptoms as your car, i checked fuel pressure and it seemed to be around 49 which is still considered normal and also i did check the distributor cap and each spark point had corroded parts on the tips but before i replaced any parts i disconnected the bank 1 sensor 1 oxygen sensor and noticed that the car never sputtered again.. so in my case i recommended to my customer to first replace the o2 sensor! Hope this helps cheers!
