May need a tune up, if that does not fix the problem then it may be in the fuel system, fuel filter injector lines or pump. I would start with a tune up as this should fix the problem. Hope this helps Tim

If you have the check engine light on, go to Autozone or similar business for a free scanner check of your computer. With luck, the scanner codes will reveal the exact part that is causing your problem. Good luck!

The car is not passing enough gas to and it makes my car buckle


Is it stumbling and hesitating when you hit the gas or go uphill, but OK at idle or light-throttle cruise? If so, change the fuel filter - it's clogging up and can't meet the fuel demands when you ask for more gas (like going up a hill or accelerating).

Loss of power on acceleration. Put new fuel


Probably the ignition timing is not advancing the spark on acceleration or high rpm's.

That is the job of the ECM (Electronic Control Module). Check it / Replace it.

Hope this helps!

Engine stuttering


have you replaced your O2 censor yet? or changed your air filter lately. I know our avenger is pretty picky we had a dirty air filter once and it seemed like the O2 censor went out because it kept trying to shut off when the idle was lower. a new air filter did a bit for it then we got a censor reader that you plug into the brain box of the car or the cigarette lighter and it told us the O2 was out and our car was doing the low idle thing. after we fixed it no problems.

Strange engine stuttering problem around 1500 to 1800 rpms.


YOU CAN TEST IT WITH A OHM"s meter or a multi meter one is your ground wire the other two send the signal to your computer.what you are looking for is when you rotate the throttle do it as slow as possible and as steady.If the reading jumps alot when you slowly rotate the throttle then it is a bad tps.let me know what the outcome is.Thank you for using fixya
