Hi there,

if the problem is under load as you are describing it to be, then perhaps you have some bad fuel, maybe water was in there. You could also have a timing chain problem if it back firing that way. But double check everything first. Fill up at the same gas station every time. With the same grade of fuel 87 octane, for example. Don't mix it up! If u run premium keep it premium. If u run regular, keep it regular, but the odd tank of premium won't hurt it either. lol.

Sounds like a mass air flow or map sensor fault. Could try running the car with either disconnected, if there is a vast improvement then it is likely to be that part.

Why does my car bog down and wont accelerate up a hill?


Usually a sign of a fuel problem, either too much or too little.
Too much could be several problems including a clogged air filter, too little could be a weak fuel pump or other issue.
A mechanic would check fuel pressure and air flow first.

Hold gas pedal down start car


If this has a carburetor, look at the Power valve that is connected to the throttle lever. It is a small plate in front of the carb with a lever that moves with the throttle. There is a small rubber valve inside which allows gas to flow between chambers.

Another possibility is the fuel pump. After that, a bad Vacuum leak like from a ruptured EGR diaphragm can cause these problems.

2002 Audi A4 3.0 Stalling and bogging down majorly.


Ignition coils has to be the answer. if it was the fuel pump your car wouldnt start. So i would say contact audi. they should have sent you a letter in the mail. We have the same car and i got a letter from them. ignition coils are the recall for the 02 a4.

Engine looses power and tranny wont shift


Transmission is likely reacting to poor engine performance. Check cap, rotor & wires...Check fuel filter (if they haven't been changed in a really long time, don't even look...just change them). If you find nothing unusual, check codes (if any)
I think you most likely have an ignition problem at this point but you have to do some "hands on" checking to determine what's going on...
Good luck

1994 Buick Century - high idle, hesitation @ speed & little power


Have u checked to make sure that the fuel filter isn't plugged, and it could be possible that the fuel pump is bad -being cracked or haveing a bad seal in it allowing fuel to leak back in the gas tank, as soon as your fuel pump warms up the leak would expand dropping your power

Will suddenly start to backfire and sputter, dying down but not stalling out. If immediately turned off and on it clears up and runs okay again.
