Acceleration hesitation My 2005 Jeep Wrangler suffers from random acceleration hesitation. When I accelerate more, the hesitation dissipates. I've tried fuel injection clear to no avail. Should I replace the spark plugs?

Depends how long since your last tune up and mileage. I would do a normal oil change, oil filter, air filter and plugs. If she still does it, try checking for a vacuum leak. Start the vehicle and spray "lightly" carb cleaner around your vacuum lines. If you have a leak the engine will increase in idle suddenly. Replace the line or part. AS A LAST resort and pretty rare is the distibutor. They usually run about 75.00 to 110.00...hope this helps.

Hesitation is usually a dirty throttle body and idle air control motor.

I've got a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee with the 5.2 v8 fuel injected Holley throttle body. My problem is while driving at soft or low acceleration it accelerates fine, but if you hit the throttle hard it


I would check the voltage on the throttle portion sensor with the engine off from idle to wide open throttle.If there are any dead spots, replace the sensor. If the tps checks out, you should check fuel pressure. If you have good fuel pressure, you may want to make sure there isn't a lot of slack in your timing chain. I don't believe you mentioned the mileage of your vehicle. Best of luck.

My 95 jeep wrangler sputters when I accelerate. I just changed my fuel filter and still runs the same.


For starters, fit a new set of spark plugs and test the HT plug and coild lead for high resistance. If you have the fuel injected engine, test the fuel pressure in the fuel rail and if this is ok, have the injectors cleaned and calibrated. If still aproblem, remove the negative battery terminal, wait a minute or so and re-fit it. This will re-set the engine management computer back to factory defaults. These things should do it.

I have a 1990 mitsubishi magna sedan with automatic transmission. It has a carburetor rather than the fuel injection and has traveled very low kilometers for its age. The problem I have is that when...


ya..accelerator pump is the prob....to see this problem..turn off your engine...open the air cleaner and see from above the carburetor and look inside...then pull the accelerator cable...if a healthy carb you can clearly see the carb squirting fuel..if you dont see any or poor squrting that is the problem...need replace or try carburetor cleaning to unblock the squirt hole...

1992 jeep wrangler with faulty acceleration. It


It is possibly the O2 sensor. I had some issues with early 90's 4.0 liters where the O2 sensor would stick rich under heavy acceleration and would cause it to lean out and bog down. It felt like a rochester four barrel flat spot on an old chevy. I hope this helps.

89 Jeep Wrangler when I accelerate it hesitate slow down its fine,accelerate it hesitate,and sometimes it will ****


Start by checking the choke. While the hood is up reach in to the carb and give it the gas.If the choke is normal then check your distributor cap for cracks(especially hairline ones,then check your rotor etc.

My car stalls


Check fuel filter . You have a mechanical pump & a carburetor on that model dont you?...Check fuel pressure (should be around 6-7 lbs) and check coil immediately after it shuts down...sometimes coils will act like that just before they go bad..
