it might have a bad coil pack. does it miss at all? the plastic boots deteriate and cause an arcing in the spark plug tube. my experiences have always been high rpm is ignition be it a coil pack or something in ignition.

SOURCE: When turn on the car in the morning, i accelerate

To begin with, if you are revving a cold engine to 6000 RPM, you are asking for a blown engine. Most OBD vehicles are equipped with a rev limiter that will cut off fuel at 3000 to 4000 rpm to prevent you from over-revving your engine and blowing it up. If yours is revving to 6000 RPM cold, then the rev limiter, for some reason is not working while it is cold. I have no explaination for this. The best thing I can tell you is to stop revving your engine so high when it is cold unless you really want to see what an engine looks like after is has gone off like a grenade.

I get s flat spot upon stepping on the accelerator, it is petrol engine and has a carburetor(no its EFI)


it has no CARB,
carbs ended here in 1994

scan the pcm ! first.
it will tell you , the reason.
the errors from the Trottle body or the 4 TPS sensors
2 in TB body motor.
2 under rigth foot
if 1 disagrees, PCM goes to limphome and is weak power.


you can NOT fix or diagnose any modern car
lacking a scan tool.

you cant.
hesitation is misfire
and has over 50 causes.

why would I guess.
I won't'
scan it and tell us the bad news.

ever tune it up,?
carb engine, or EFI?
the tacho action tells you the primary ingition side is failing.
the jumper is inserted, in the EFI , code 8 is spark misfire.
jumper the service check connector , 2 pins.
code 8 can clear fast, so you make engine mistfire, watching the lamp. but is only more evidence that the the ECU can not fire the coil.
The Tacho proves that. if the code 4 or 9 show up, bingo.
drive with the jumper planted.
see page 6-96 in the FSM book.

Loss of power in acceleration


I would check the fuel pressure first.
If the engine was miss-firing the check engine light should be on.

My engine misses when accelerating and when rpm exceeds 2,000. Check engine code was for cylinder #2 misfire. I replaced the sparkplug and wire on #2, #4, & #6 but, have not figured out how to


Maybe try waiting untill dark ,fire it up,open the hood (kill the hood light)
spray the plug wires with windex(not water) and look for sparks ,if any ,put a set of wires on it. I suppect this is the only problem,bad wires will kill coil packs

I have an 02 wrangler and the oil preasure goes down when Idling is that an oil pump going bad?


First we would need to know when this occurs. Asuming the oil level is at the full mark!. If the pressure goes up during acceleration and down at idle when engine is fully warmed up, then this is normal. An engine requires 10 psi of oil pressure per 1,000 rpm ( ex. 20 psi at 2,000 rpm, 25 psi at 2,500 rpm, and so on ) . If the gauge is moving back and forth erratically at idle , i would say the gauge is bad. If it drops to 0 while accelerating I would say your oil pump is bad. If from time to time it seems to work and other times it seems not to work, I would say the oil pressure sending unit for the gauge is bad. If the pump failed you would start to here a Knocking noise from the engine in a short period of time. Use the above scenario's to narrow down what it may be.

2002 Buick LeSabre shows 3 trouble codes: p0404, p0410, AND P0300 .. Car lacks power... will operate pretty well between 1800 and 2400 RPM. Beyond 2400 RPM there is nothing, no response when accelerator...


P0300 is random engine misfiring. Could be several problems. My car had this and I replaced the plugs and plug wires. No change. Checked the three coil units. They seemed ok. I used a new on in each spot and nothing changed. Ended up being the ignition control module that sits under the coils. Relatively easy to change. Costs around $150 at the parts store. This may correct the other codes.
