Question about 1999 Ford Escort

2 Answers

After the car warms up, it won't aaccelerate past 3500 RPMs. If you accelerate slow you can get it to accelerate to 5000 RPMs. Could this be the fuel pump? How much pressure should the fuel pump put out?

Buick Lesaber, Lower then 1800rpm most time runs fine, Once in while surges high rpm's like driving fast 1900 & above rpm bucks /2100 smooth's out.


Need to take to a shop with a GM tech 2 or higher scan tool. These tools can actually display various sensor readings and voltages in real time and can be used while driving the car to recreate the issue. These are super expensive scan tools so most shops don't have them. Call around or bite the bullet and have a dealer do it. The money you spend on a correct diagnosis will be saved by not throwing random parts at it based on guess work.

2007 kia rio acceleration will not go past 2500 rpms


there can be few things...first thing first
is your car missing...if yes then check plugs, any bad wire

- check for dirty fuel injectors (have u ever cleaned fuel tank) if ok then
- if u have easy access to intank fuel pump, replace its filter..
- check for bad TPS... if ok then
- check for bad O2 sensor

A bad PTS might be the culprit...
Hope this help

First thing to do is change the fuel filter, spark plug wires, spark plugs, and air filter. If this does not solve the problem then I would have the fuel injection system cleaned out and also change the oxygen sensor
