Certainly would need to know which engine you have , however this sounds like you may have a mass air flow failure. This would cause the engine to run fine when the air intake is unhooked as the mass air flow sensor would be not measuring the air flow so the computer would be in a failure mode using a default setting. Please rate this info That will help me out Thankyou RJ

Why doesengine runs but wont accelarate beyond 20mph


Hi Clare, Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. The problem could be with the wheel speed sensors, the fuel pump, air flow sensor or a number of other causes. Once you have the scan report let us know the codes and we can then advise on the depth of work required. Regards John

How dose egr valve connect to intake on 93 buick lesbre 3.8


Just find a vacume hose that has vacume to it when you accelarate with car running pull a vacume hose off from carburator check by putting your finger or a vacume gage to it to see if you got vacume if not accelarate the carb by pushing accelarator (left side of carb driver side) if you have vacume when you accelarate you can use that vacume line

I put a cold air intake filter on the truck, and right after that the engine will not accelarate I changed the O2 sensor, the mass air flow sensor, and the one before the mass air flow sensor.


I,m thinking that its your catalitic converter, it may or may not be the fault of the cold air intake, due to the increase in air flow you may have freed up some lingering carbon deposits through driving potentionally with a heaver foot than normal. (we all love the sound of our intakes) Is there a check engine light or emmisions type of warning?

Got a 85 ford f150 has a 302 holly carb. was running fine ran low on gas and now cuts out wont back out of drive way idles fine but hit the gas and it stalls


strip and clean out the carb,or quick fix ,rev engine with air filter off and then hold hand over intake this may or may not not cure it .because when hand is held over carb and stops air the suction will draw any muck through the jets

Daughters 2002 Ford Escape starts but will not keep running. Similar problems since purchased it 1 yr ago. What could be the problem?


I have the same problem with my 2001 escape V6. there is a really cheap temporaly fix....actually it could be permanent and will never damage your vehicule. When u open the hood there is a plastic guard with the ford logo and engine size that is held in place with 3 bolts, 1 on the left 2 on the rigth. Unscrew these and the guarding comes off. Once this remove you will see the accelarator pedal cable hook to the throttle. U can rock the throttle manually to give more gaz when your motor is running. At the bottom of the throttle there is a small screw that is not touching to anything, if u screw it a couple of turn it will start pushing on the throttle and stop your vehicule from stalling. Adjust this screw until your RPM indicator on your dash board is at around 600 rpm wich is the normal idle speed of your motor when functionning normaly. The real problem is an air intake valve that is defective (150$) because it open when the vehicule starts but shut because defective causing your engine to stall because no air for combustion....By forcing the screw on the throttle the valve cannot shut down and that is why your vehicule wont stall........It takes a full 5 minutes to do the mechanical screw fix...And I drove one year on it before replacing the valve........good luck from a friendly canadian........
