Car stalls on acceleration over 2800 RPMs

Car starts fine and idles great but when a sudden acceleration is attempted the car stalls but engine remains running at idle and no response from Gas until engine is turned off and back on. Then the process repeats if I try to accelerate over 2800 RPMs.

Car will start and idle well, idles fine in the different gears. Then when you go to accelerate, about 1100 RPMs it starts surging up and down, but if you go up towards 13-1500 RPMs, it rides smooth. What...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I would say it is either the idle control sensor or the map sensor. Usually, with the map sensor, you experience the car stalling out. If this is not happening, I would say change the idle control sensor. If you have a check engine light on, take it to Autozone and have it scanned to make sure.

95 Regal 3.8 Runs great but today started


Try a new distributor cap and rotor button,they are known problem areas.If the problem is not in the distributor then you will likely need to replace the catalytic converter,a plugged converter will not let the engine get to full horse power because it can't get rid of the fuel as fast as it is coming into the engine,which is not a problem for the engine at lower rpms but it is a problem when you need the power.

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low


Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.
