Hi, i replaced my fuel filter, fuel pump seems to work good. But when accelerating, the truck seems to putt then slowly follow through like normal. So in other words, it's impossible for me to burn the tires...

    Air filters about a month old, and theirs about 120,000 on the engine and over 200,000 on the body.

    When EGR valve is unplugged, the truck won't start. Any other suggestions would be well appreciated.

    Ok, i unplugged it again and it DID start (Dont know why it didn't last time) and the acceleration still acts up. But just to clarify, it dont actually (PUTT) but it dont have the pickup it supposed to when accelerating. Say, if i mat the accelerator, it won't go up to speed right away, it takes about 4-5 seconds before it actually picks up speed. It kind of sounds like it wants to stall, but not totaly. And again, i really appreciate your post's and more would be very helpful. Thanks

    Thanks Pierre, But i replaced my TPS about 3-4 months ago, my truck wouldnt start at all then, so i just replaced everything that could be a problem including: TPS, Pick-up Coil, Control Modual, Cap, Rotor, O2 sensors, air filter and fuel filter. Any other ideas?

    Thanks Again

Loss of power and sputtering during acceleration until ready to shift into next gear. 2.2 engine. No check engine light. Seems to run fine until under power. Changed fuel filter but no help.

Sounds like you have a fuel pump problem, sometimes when they are defective it just does'nt quit it will not produce the pressure needed to get the fuel to the injection system when accelerating.

96 Jimmy bogs down when I accelerate hard

Sounds like the fuel filter is getting clogged. It will flow enough fuel for normal driving, but can't supply fuel for full throttle acceleration, causing the engine to bog down. Replacing the fuel filter with a new one should fix the problem.
