I have a 97 jimmy and it does good till your up to speed (anything over 50) it starts to studder when gas is evened out (not gaining or losing) but fine when you give it more gas or let off


If the check engine light is on, you should check for trouble codes first.
The first thing that comes to mind is the EGR valve. It could be opening when it should not.
Another thing is a regular cylinder miss. The transmission is going into overdrive at 45-50 mph which puts extra load on the engine. If you speed up it downshifts into 3rd which gives the engine more power. A regular miss could be ignition or a fuel injector.

2010 Nissan Pathfinder Cruise Control issues


First I'll assume you haven't read the owners Manuel, Cruise control is not perfect on any vehicle. if coming to a hill put foot on gas to help rpm, going down hill put foot on brake to keep same speed, cruise control operates off of engine vacuum. Speed sensors can be affected by putting on smaller or bigger tires than what is on drivers door.

When i accelerate gradually, no problem. When I push the gas pedal to gain speed quickly, the car loses power, like it is going to stall.


This could be a clogged air filter and /or fuel filter. start there. Also a dirty throttle body can cause this. Use brake clean to clean this. you only need to clean the inside of the throttle body , use a small brush and clean as far as it will reach, also clean the back of the plate. Start it (might take a minute) and spray the brake clean into the throttle at higher rpm's.

I have an intermittent problem with engine power loss/lack of acceleration in my 1999 chevy Lumina. 3.8 L vin K. problem only develops on warm/hot days after sitting in standstill traffic idling for long...


Normally that would be classic vapor lock. But I don't know how that could happen since fuel injection recirculates so much? I try to think of how gas tank vent valve could do this and also draw a blank. Leaving the fan. It is electric and possibly not working? It is mechanical and have a bad clutch?
