2003 ford escape acts like it wants to stall when you accellerate


First question is always - is the check engine light on ?
Could be ignition or fuel problems such as spark plugs or coils, low fuel pressure or a failing sensor.

I have a 2003 mitsubishi galant, 4 cyl. whenever i take off it goes really slow like it doesnt want to change gears. (automatic) i had the trans checked & they said it's ok. could it be a fuel...


I have a similar problem...when at a stop it jerks in hesitation sometime feeling as if it wants to stall. It also does this when accelerating from stop...it has completely stalled out once when accelerating after switching from reverse to drive, but started right away.

I am having the same problems with 2003 Kia Sedona


Drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. Filter is attached to the fuel pump. Sounds like the fuel pump is failing.

2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking


Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
