Double check your timing and if the vehicle has a dwell setting double check the dwell. You said you replaced the cap but did you replace the Rotor as well? I believe it is a timing issue more than anything else but you should always replace Cap and Rotor at the same time.

When accelerating up to speed the car will cutter out or spudder a little and then it will drive fine for a while. What is the cause?


Could be a lot of things, did you change the spark plugs lately? How about the spark plug wires, does it happen mainly when its damp out? That would lead me to wires. Did you change the fuel filter lately? Under acceleration it uses the most gas, thus the fuel filter needs to get the most fuel through it. Same goes for spark plugs they are working harder under acceleration. Maybe just take it in for a tune up if its been a while.

2000 passat v6; check engine light+spuddering when accelerating


good chance with that problem you were close most likely a misfire will cause that. it would be either your spark plugs or coil pack. also make sure your vacuum lines are good and air filter is good. also bad gas can cause that problem. the worst outcome would be your throttle body going out on you.

After car warms up and stops wants to cut off


Sounds like you need a fuel pump. If its the original with114,000 miles then replace it.

My car doesnt accelerate like its supposed to do.It seems to me like it boags down when i push the gas but when i let off the gas a little it will accelerate slowly.It has no power, once you get to going...


try to have your intake manifold and air filter cleaned. Also, try to replace the fuel filter. these are usually the culprits for the problem that you are experiencing.

Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate


Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).

1991 toyota previa 132,000 ml. I have a problem with acceleration. The engine sputters when accelerating. I have completed a tune-up, and there were carbon deposits on the spark plugs.


I had a power problem, when cold idled just fine,when warm it would miss at idle, spudder on acceleration and sound just fine at higher rpm. found number three spark plug wire had burned through lower boot. Spark was firing to head at low idle. same wire burn twice with about 40000 mile between.

No power when accelerating


Once you rule out some kind of ignition problems,; spark plugs and wires, ignition timing, distrib. cap & rotor, the cause may be low fuel pressure from a failing pump or clogged filter. Listen to the pump in the gas tank. If its been getting louder lately, have the pressure tested.
