If your car have check eng. light on try to pull trouble codes. for free at auto zone, or most auto part stores, and start from there could be many things. coil packs for example, autoparts have spetial keys to pull trouble code on cars made before 1996.

1990 Mazda 626 Car starts, idles and runs very well when cold however whwn its hot the car is hard to start and stalls. So far the idlde air cotrol valve and mass air sensor have been replaced . Each...


Honestly sounds like the throttle position sensor, if the car is cold it will be choked and thus the throttle body flap almost closed easy to crank, more fuel less air.... when the air warms it moves the throttles actual flap opening wider, thus more air less fuel and harder starting, not as much fuel to combust and if the computer cannot sense the correct position, it will cause acceleration hesitating, poor idle, and what is called stumbling, where you press the gas and it kind of sounds like the motor sputters for a second and then goes or the occasional surging if at highway speed of say 60 mph and you feel the car kinda speed up mile or 2 and then back to the original speed.

My 93 nissan p/u had that issue, but the tps was replaced and it takes 2-3 revolutions on the motor and it's running smooth, hot or cold.

Hope this helps.

Stalls accelerating on turns


Disengage the traction control if possible see if that helps. the oil light will come on after stalling, because the key is on.. just like when you start the car. it may be dirty fuel system... filter and or injectors...

My 99 camry 4cyl, has a rough idle and sounds like a misfiring when accelerating when in gear. Any answers to what it could be?


You could sure be running on 3 pistons. Check spark plugs by removing one HT lead at a time with engine idling. One that's dead will not alter your idle speed when disconected. Replace bad plug and check the same cylinder again. If OK fine. If not check whether you are getting a spark to that plug and rectify. If you have both power and a good spark but still without power the check engine - valves and pistons.

I'd replace the fuel filter. It's easiest if you use a toggle joint adapter with your socket and ratchet.

Stalling out


One indication of the Coil failing,,is the car will idle nicely,,but will **** out when under hard acceleration.
This can also be caused by non functionaing alternator,,and dead battery.
