The pinking is due to either lean burn, high temperatures or overly advanced timing. If the mass air sensor is dirty then it may underestimate the volume of air entering the engine and therefore call on shorter injection cycles meaning less fuel = lean mix A faulty or slightly under-performing exhaust gas recirculation system would reduce the amount of inert exhaust gas from entering the combustion process and this will cause a high temperature lean burn situation. An under-performing crank sensor may yield erroneous timing signals to the ECU giving rise to an excessively advanced ignition causing the pinking. There may be error codes logged by the ECU which would help in the diagnosis.

Struggles accelerate


This is a hard question. When was the last time you did a tune up?
Dirty oil? clogged air or fuel filter?
a 1.6L engine isn't the fastest thing on 4 wheels. Did you have a full tank of gas, trunk loaded with heavy stuff. Other people with you? Your Max power band and max torque band is right around 4000 rpms. Don't try to pass when your at 2500 rpms because 4 cylinders have no power in lower rpm ranges and don't go into the red area either.

Where you in overdrive? Headwind?
Possible the other driver had a faster car?

Acceleration problems: really doggy and won't accelerate. My 2005 Grand Prix base model has 50,000 miles on it and ever since I bought it about 8 months ago I've had problems with acceleration. It always...


Check/change air filter.
Check/change spark plugs & plug wires. The wires can be check with an OHM meter, and the specs for the resistance in the manual. So can the ignition coils.
Change fuel filter...easy.
Last, if you have scanner...check MAF(mass air flow sensor) for operating specs...5g/sec at idle to 300gal/sec+ @ 3,000 RPM.

Impreza 2002 wrx spluttering and holding back when accelerating hard inbetween 4000 rpm and the red line any ideas


check coil, dist. and plugs; have the fuel pressure tested make sure you getting proper pressure from the fuel pump, check the fuel regulator make sure is not faulty. if all above check out, than have the air mass flow sensor check. air mass flow sensor measure the amount of air entering the intake and the computer calibrate the amount of air and how much fuel need to be injected from the injectors. faulty air mass flow sensor will throw ecu off from air and fuel mixture causing the ecu (computer) to starve the engine with fuel also causing it to sputter or hesitate when apply on gas pedal. if you have to replace any part check with ebay.

Looses Power at high RPM's


Hello! A cylinder misfire can be something as trivial as needing new spark plug wires, to having a dangerous lean condition in the fuel mixture. Assuming that you have a stock, un-modified car, with a stock, un-modified PCM, my suggestion would be to swap the coil packs, to isolate whether or not the 1 - 4 coil pack is faulty.


Hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!

No Accelaration


Check your fuel filter and engine air filter. Sounds like your engine cannot breath or is not getting the proper amount of fuel to run well. Possibly also check your fuel pressure regulator.

Accelerator problems


Hi,

If you have the turbo charged version, this issue refers to the "turbo dead zone" between 3500-4000 RPM. This refers to the no acceleration between these two RPMs and is caused by the time difference between the time the second turbo kicks in after the first turbo has activated. If you are referring to acceleration loss/delay below 3500 RPM, the issue is "turbo lag" which pertains to the delay in time between the stepping on the gas pedal and the 1st turbo activating.

In some other instances including non-turbo versions, the problem may be due to air leak in the intake manifold and the air cleaner. In the turbo versions, it would include the in/out junction of the blower including the clamps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
