Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Car has been fueled up twice today while on trip. The first time, the car would sputter while accelerating to highway speed, but eventually stopped doing it and ran fine. The second time, it would not accelerate above 25 mph. Engine speed (rpms) picks up, but not vehicle speed. Oil changed plus fluid top off (supposedly) yesterday. Check engine lite is on. Possible probelms? My son is currently in his car in FL, trying to milk it to 3 more miles to Orlando, and I am here in MD.

Assuming this car has an automatic transmission I would recommend checking the transmission fluid level first. If it's down by as little as a 1/2 pint it can cause slippage which appears to be what your describing. If the fluid is low use caution adding fluid, over filling a transmission can cause more damage than running it low on fluid.
Note: the problem does appear to be the transmission by what you have said and there are other possibilities as to what might be wrong with the transmission but most cannot be cannot be fixed on the side of the road.
If it's a manual transmission then the problem is most likely a worn out clutch and/or pressure plate both of which require pulling the transmission to fix.

1995pontiac,firebird6cyl,sputters at 2000rpm


When you say "sputters at 2000 rpm" , are you referring to ANY time the engine is at 2000 rpm - meaning in Park, when you are just goosing the throttle, or in gear when you are accelerating, or at highway speed in high gear? If you are experiencing a "shuddering" in the engine at certain speeds/rpms - especially if these are speeds you regularly cruise at (long commutes at steady speeds), the problem could be in the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). They have a tendency to wear unevenly if you drive a certain steady speeds. Eventually, the problem would progress to an engine code, but it may occur without setting the check engine light.

2002 Sable sedan choke/missing/sputtering intermittent


The PO 316 is still misfires om first 1000 revolutions
so the shop did a poor job for you on resolveing the
cylinder misfires

Try a diffferent shop

Have to clean the MAF Sensor & replace upstream
oxygen sensors if over 100,000 miles

Need the correct oem spark spark plugs/any brand

No reason the gas filter should be clogged unless it was in
the car for 10 years

Fuel pressure should be checked

Need to check for cylinder misfires on a road test of 20
miles or more with professional software in Mode#06

Just bought a 1988 Ford Ranger 2.9 liter v6 today. On my way home from the gentleman's house whom i bought it from, the truck starts bucking and sputtering. When accelerating at highway speeds there seems...


well i'd call the basterd and ask him what he wants to do about it , or take him to court as he did not disclose these problems. Or did he? I would check the fuel system for leaks which causes engine to get air and less fuel than it requires or check tank for leak and also check motor for bad vacuum lines and intake gaskets. spark plugs check.

ENGINE SPUTTER AND DIES ON ACCELERATION


check your fuel filter, take an air compressor and blow air through the "in" end if no or little air is coming through then just replace the filter, if fuel filter is ok then try a fuel additive to clean your injectors which are a very common problem when the engine gets gunky build up on them
