Why does my 2000 Chevy Express 350 sputter and engine shakes when taking off?

Hi Frederick:
I'd be suspicious of timing, like maybe just a bit too advanced. Possible cause could be a vacuum leak. Does it have a vacuum pot on the distributor? If so, make sure it is working properly. If it is stuck, the timing will not retard under low vacuum, making your engine feel sorry for itself.

3.8 running badly

possibly fuel flow direction(filter)is backwards?;don't take it apart just look for the fluid direction arrow on the filter first. Get a OBD Scanner read out;get them done free as advertised by some places,especially ones that do transmission/tune up companies before you touch unrelated components and make your problem worse.

While driving the car spits and sputters changed fuel filter

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If it has been a long time since your last tune up, get one done. Change plugs, wires, coils, coil packs, distributor cap. Check your air filter and PCV valve as well. Make sure you do not have any vacuum leaks. Check in all places.there could be one. Check your battery connection also. If you have a check engine light on, get the codes for the light. Take it to Autozone or Advanced, only if your check engine light is on Cheryl. This light comes on when there is a problem. The staff there cam scan your computer for free and let you know why the light is on. If it is on, more then likely, the computer will know what the problem is. It could be a leaking fuel injector too. I know it is a lot but any of these can cause sputtering. Best wishes. If you need anything else, just let me know.

My 99 ford expedition 5.4 is running bad and it sputtering and shaking while driving?

you probably got a bad coil. The 99 5.4 has individual coils one could be misfiring, but you will have to hook it up to a computer.

My 1995 Jetta is running fine without the ac on. After I turn the ac on it may drive fine for a while then all of a sudden it loses alot of power and spits and sputters. What could be the problem. Thanks

make sure your plugs and wires are in good condition.also fuel and air filter.the engine has to be well tuned up.because air conditioner compressor put a little load on engine.if engine is not well tuned.the AC will pull it down.cause it to lose power and run rough.

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.
