SOURCE: 1997 Ford Escort losses power

Do you have a blown head gasket? Just a guess. If you do this is one of the symptoms. You may have some coolant in your oil. Check your inside the valve cover for water by looking in through the oil cap.

SOURCE: Car sputters when you accelerate

is the engine lite on? if a misfire shows, and the plugs are new, could be coil or wires. how does it idle? maybe air leak between mass air flow sensor and throttlebody.

SOURCE: sputtering when accelerating

If it idles ok and only "sputters" under load it could be either an ignition or fuel problem. How long has it been since the fuel filter was changed? How about spark plugs and wires? Without the proper diagnostic equipment and the vehicle in front of me, these are the easiest things for the DIYer to tackle with the fuel filter being the cheapest option.

SOURCE: Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate

Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).

Hi is it a fuel injection model or carb? If it is a carb model, I have found the auto choke gets stuck. This will make it start fine in cooler weather but floods the engine on warmer days or if the engine is hot.

You would need to figure out if the problem is too much air or not enough fuel.
The carb has three internal circuits - - idle, cruise, and accelerate.
Fuel flows thru each circuit from the bowl to the venturi.
You could have a vac leak that is allowing too much air to enter the intake, or the idle circuit on the carb may not be adjusted correctly after the engine warms up.
Or it could be something else.

Have it checked with a computer diagnostics. It sounds like it could be a bad sensor, quite possibly your oxygen sensor. A bad sensor could cause the computer to think your engine needs more fuel.

From what you posted,it may be a few different problems.BUT.The 1st thing I would look at is the cat/converter may be blocked.Hey.It may not be.But look at that before you spend any money on other stuff.I just thought.How is your air filter.Take it out and take the car for a short run and see how it goes.This may show what is wrong.Hope this helps

Samurai accelerates on its own, can't idle, maybe too much fuel from carb?


hi you got an air leak its the air flow not the fuel that controls the speed too much fuel will cause flooding it wont start because its sucking air and eventually when it does the extra air being sucked in causes it to accelrate you need to lift your bonnet listen for signs of air being sucked in it may be a hose , or inlet manifold gaskets carb gasket it might even be the carb as it will have rubber seals diaphrams i had the mixture jet come out before and the car takes off like a rocket yates210456
