This is a common problem on fuel injected cars, the throttle body needs to be cleaned. Dirt and grime will build up in the air passage and on the throttle plate causing a small amount of air to leak past the plate when it is closed (at idle). Spray cleaners are available at auto parts stores, after removing the air plenum tube from the throttle body, spray the cleaner into the throttle body opening and onto the throttle plate. You may want to used an old toothbrush to scour the area, then wipe clean with a clean cloth. The throttle plate can be moved to access the rear side surface.

2008 sprinter 2500, every time i start to drive I have no power for about 5 to 8 seconds nothing happening then slowly it starts to rev up engine and start to drive then its fine , there r no codes


Check the engine in neutral/park and depress gas and confirm engine is slow to rev up. If the engine revs in gear and little or no movement have the transmission checked.

this car is likely a drive by wire.(no cable between gas pedal and throttle actuator motor) Some one needs to observe the throttle to see if it advances when the gas is depressed.

The simplest analysis would be the connection to the engine computer with not a simple scan tool but a Chrysler proprietary analyzer to see the interaction of throttle position and engine RPM

Hope this helps?

I can rev my rpms up to about 2500 before it starts sputtering and wants to quit, and will if i let off the gas


sputtering is called misfire..
means horrid combustion.

nothing beats this cause, due to driver driving car till it quits
or sputters.

Shaking during idle when warm.


try injector cleaner or newer fuel cleaners, try octane booster, sounds like a fuel delivery symptom but the temperature factor is a worry. I would guess injectors.

2000 Ford Taurus. Would fill up with gas when close to empty or light come on. Then a couple weeks ago,gas gauge was on 1/4 tank then went a little lower and engine started bucking. Then light came on. ...


change the fuel filter for one, this is telling you that your pick up in the tank is getting clogged, I would drop my tank, and drain it, flush it, and check the pump at that time
