Sounds to me like you have to change your fuel filter. Every single item in your symptom list point directly to a clogged fuel filter. Some fuel is getting through but when you try to accelerate the motor gets starved for fuel and when you let off it will recover.
I've had this exact same problem before on a couple of occasions
and the problem turned out to be the fuel filter.

Hope this info helps you out, good luck.

Ps. Don't forget to give me a fixya rating when this works for you. I'm 99 percent sure this is your problem.

I have a 96 f150 5.8 4x4. Starts fine and runs fine, but when I start it after a 5-10 minute stop (when its warm), it will start fine but then die after a minute or so. It starts right back up and I hold...

Common issue on this year and engine, Do the cleaning outlined below.

Throttle Body Cleaning

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

My check engine light is on and when driving wont pick up speed like it suppose to and when stop at light cuts off

Take you car to the local Auto Parts Store, most of them will connect a handset to your car for free, once they have the codes you will have a better idea what is wrong with your machine and what parts may be required to repair the issue. Places like Auto Zone and I beleive PEP Boys will help you out.

The truck choke off when going do a slope at slOw speed. I

Check the IAC valve (idle air control) might be dirty and sticking. Remove air intake hose to engine, spray throttle body cleaner in upper right opening in throttle body to clean, also spray all areas of throttle body while opening and closing butterfly, then start truck and spray IAC valve and openings while running. If that does not work replace the IAC valve with new one.

I have a 2001 Mercedes C240. When the engine is running with car stopped you can feel a bit of trembling. It also cuts off during driving and at slow speeds only. Like when I will the foot off the pedal...

The first thing you do is have the engine control module scanned for fault codes. I also suggest you buy a can of spray throttle valve cleaner and clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve.

VW Golf MK3 1996 P - Car cuts out when slowing down. Battery and Oil lights come on. Restart the car then starts juggering. Its not a fluid purring from the engine.

i would start by cleaning out the throttle body. they collect soot and not have to be a lot either for it to mess up the idle speed, i had trhis on mine soon as i dipped the clutch to slow down the rpm dropped to about 400 to stall, i cleaned throttle body out ( taking air intake off and wipe round inside and the butterfly will be enough) and now it idles and the rpm dont drop below 900

2003 Expedition jerking/cutting out.

Had same problem: cutting out at low rpm, jerking, a huge clunk or shudder at higher speed (like transmission was going out), and rough idle. All these symptoms were intermittent.
