1987 Topaz, has trouble accelerating.

I have a 5 speed 1987 Topaz, the car starts fine and is driveable, but while im driving if i push the gas to hard it does not accelerate like it use to, it just rev's my engine like its in neutral. I have to push on the gas lightly and it will accelerate at a slower pase. What could the problem be?

Most likely it is a transmission problem. Being that old the transmission needs work and possibly the clutch replaced or Throw-out bearing.

Why wont my car accelerate?


If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

My 2000 daewoo nubira is hesitating and jolting and it also loses power when pushing on the gas some times.

This fault will not cause any driveability related symtoms, it just turns on the check engine light. But that is not saying it is impossible. She a trained technician and have further dianostics run on the code.

Sputtering while driving and running funny.


It could be a clogged fuel filter or you could have a old gas coated inside the carbrator. Seafoam will fix that up in a hurry. Don't be supprised if it blows smoke its cleaning all the junk bout of your carbrator. I would start with the simpelist things first. Fuel filter Check your carbrator Throttle adjustment Fuel pump relay Defiantly get a Haynes manual it will trouble shoot you through your problem.

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters - including fuel filter? I would start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.

'93 Aerostar-stalls while driving/scary-stalls in 'drive' at stops


Wow!!! Now that's a headfull of problems....
This could be a great many things...
Check these before you sell. I have a '93 Aerostar and can't live without it.
1. Check idle speed
2. Fuel filter may be clogged or water in the fuel system.
3. Choke improperly adjusted or sticking.
4. Distributor components damp or damaged.
5. Faulty emissions components.
6. Faulty or incorrectly gapped spark plugs/ Also check wires.
7. Vacuum leak at the carburetor/fuel injection unit or vacuum hoses.
8. On 1986 models, stalling during idle or deceleration may be caused by sludge in the throttlebody. (2.3 litre engine)
9. On 1986 & 1987 models with a 2.3 litre engine,hesitation or stalling during acceleration may be caused by carbon build-up on the intake valves.....I hope this helps!! Adios
