It impossible to know what the problem is/could be until the shop checks it out. Could be a misfire, spark plug wires, coil pack, fuel filter, MAF sensor, The list is endless

My 2003 cts fill like im driving with a flat tire. Then the service stability system light comes on my navigation. How do I now what to fix?


SERVICE STABILITY SYS
Refer to ABS Description and Operation in Antilock Brake System ! You need to take it an have DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes read ! That will point you to a diagnostic path !
Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES)
The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) adds an additional level of vehicle control to the electronic brake control module (EBCM).
Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The VSES is activated when the EBCM determines that the desired yaw rate does not match the actual yaw rate as measured by the yaw rate sensor.
The desired yaw rate is calculated from the following parameters:
?€¢
The position of the steering wheel


?€¢
The speed of the vehicle


?€¢
The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle

The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. If the yaw rate error becomes too large, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying differential braking to the appropriate wheel. The amount of differential braking applied to the left or right front wheel is based on both the yaw rate error and side slip rate error.
The VSES activations generally occur during aggressive driving, in turns or on bumpy roads without much use of the accelerator pedal. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal pulsations feel different than the ABS pedal pulsations. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation.
If you do not know about this , I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop that does !

As I drive especially if I accelerate hard front wheels seem to sway


It can be a few things wrong here so the best thing for you and the safest for me to say is take it for a m.o.t even if you still have a long m.o.t. left not much money to pay to get this right

The car hesitates at initial acceleration. The RPM's jump to 3 then to 2 then to 1 before it stablizes at 40 MPH and seems fine. It feels like a jerky acceleration and is not smooth like I think it...


If it only happens in one particular speed/RPM then I would be looking into TPS throttle position sensor. Please check and spray carb cleaner on the MAF mass air flow sensor only.

Smoke coming from exhaust at higher speeds or when putting foot down, also acceleration jerky like am blipping the accelerator not cruising used to cruise 110 no bother now its taking it to reach 100


If the smoke is blue, it is burning oil. If it is black or dark grey it is running way too rich, like your choke is stuck on. That would also explaing the jerky acceleration and poor response. Your fuel consumption will also skyrocket.

Car has the hiccups and rough acceleration!


Go to autozone they have a free OBD 2 code reader. Start by finding out what that code is. It might be something as simple as an O2 sensor. Hope this helps.

Sticky accelerator action Mazda 121


Yes it does. But I would clean the throttle body first by taking off the hose that comes from the air filter to the throttle body, held on by a steel clamp. Hold open the throttle plate and spray it down with a brand name carb and choke cleaner. Keep me posted please.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed


Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck
