Is the check engine light on? If it is, take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault codes stored in the car's computer. Most parts stores offer this service at no charge. It sounds like a faulty throttle position sensor to me, but getting the code(s) will help narrow it down. Sure hope this helps and good luck to you.

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.

Rough idle it dies or bogs down when i give it gas


Have the fuel pressure checked. Low fuel pressure from a weak pump, a clogged filter, or a bad pressure regulator will cause those problems.

You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

Bogs down when give it gas


Changing a fuel pump- won't cause that issue

You had other problems before the pump went in

Wasn't the fuel pressure checked at motor with
a gauge or scan tool?

Exhaust Converter could be worn out & partially clogged

Front O2 Sensors never replaced ?

Spark Plugs over 3 years old ?

Dirty MAF Sensor ?

I would check fuel trim on a road test & also
Mode #06 for cylinder misfire count

Could have a bunch of bad COP Ignition Coils
or a week battery

2006 chevy express 2500 van with 4.8L idles really low, when you floor it it bogs down, after you let off the gas it dies, replaced the fuel pump already


Clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner and make sure the air filter is not dirty or plugged.Also clean the mas air flow sensor with mass air flow sensor cleaner.Give this a try and let me know if it took care of your problems.Hope this helps.Good luck.
