Have the cam sensor and/or crankshaft sensor checked. They could be going bad.

Is it a carb problem if I have to spray ether in carb for car to fire. Doesn't always stay running if I do. Carb or fuel line?


Probably fuel pressure issue. Check for leaks, dirty filter, low fuel pressure could indicate bad fuel pump. Normally, a float would cause flooding, but a clogged jet could cause a lean / no start issue. Try some gumout fuel cleaner and a gumout spray clean of the carb and linkages before you get to far into a part issue.

Fuel injectors are dirty or you've got a tank full of watery or bad fuel. Buy a bottle of fuel injector cleaner and put that into empty tank then fill up with premium gas. She'll be giddying-up in no time.

Probably a vacuum leak at the intake manifold,or an o-ring at one of the injectors.
if you spray carb cleaner around the sealing edge of the manifold and at the injectors and the idle changes ,you found the leak.
The plactic intakes are prone to this problem.

My Ford Focus SE sputters when I accelerate. I replaced my spark plugs recently( and not with cheap ones). At times, it doesn't want to accelerate fast then starts to sputter. Any ideas on what it...


what does "not with cheap ones" mean? what did you put in.? Did it run like this before the plugs were changed? If you put some Bosch Platinum plugs in from Autozone take them out and put in the plugs that FORD calls for. You may have created your own problem. are your plug wires good?

My 98 Toyota Camry V6 LE has 120,000 miles on it and runs great. However, lately I have noticed it sputters ever so slightly on the highway. right about 60 MPH. If coasting or accelerating it is fine. ...


Being that you have a 1998 Toyota Camry, these cars are fuel injected and shouldnt need the gas pedal depressed to feed fuel to your engine. It's possible you may have a dirty fuel pump or dirty injectors. Here are some possible steps (cheapest in $) so follow these in order to spend less money.
- Run some Lucas Fuel System Cleaner (green cap bottle), do two treatments of that in your gas tank and see if that makes a difference. Dirty lines and clogged injectors are caused by cheap gas and or constantly running on Empty thus allowing fuel pump to pick up sediment from bottom of gas tank.
- Sputtering could also be worn spark plugs (too big of a gap) and or faulty spark plug wires or both.
-Timing chain issues usually occur if you hear a constant vibration near the top of the engine.
-Transmission issues would be having trouble putting the car in certain gears, or the transmission stick does not sit in gear properly (slippage).

Just some suggestions that may help with your problem.

As i put my foot on the acc, in all 5 gears, sometimes it judgers like a kangaroo, like its running out of gas


OK number of possibilities here- Im gonna give you the most common ones-

a dirty fuel filter can cause vehicle sputter by blocking the flow of gas from the pump to the engine

a dirty air filter restricts air flow causeing the MAF (mass airflow censor) to report abnormal readings to the ecm (computer) causing the ecm to adjust fuel mix improperly resulting in stutter

bad plugs, wires, or coil - if the engine cant achieve proper spark it will hesitate.

Sounds like you need a tune up- Id check your fuel filter first and go from there, buy plugs before you buy wires, and wires before you buy coils-

I have a '93 nissan pathfinder and whenever I try to accelerate or if my RPMs get lower than 2000 it starts sputtering, it is also idling low and sputtering then as well. What is wrong and how do I fix it?


You need your idle speed adjusted, or you have bad gas, or you have dirty fuel injectors. I would put some injector cleaner in the fuel tank. Go fill the car up. Then if it doesn't improve by the end of that tankfull, I'd take it in for a tune-up.
