Does it only happen when it's coming from a stop, or is it when you accelerate in general? If its only when you start, it could indicate a problem in your transmission. If it happens while accelerating in general, It's most likely a bad spark plug, which is an extremely easy fix.

1993 Mustang 2.3L Trouhble(again); It's slugish at accelerating from a stop(some times falling on its face and dieing), jerks at highspeeds when trying to accelerate, and has hard starts. Any help


All the above problems were happening to my truck, and the engine light never did come on. Finally changed the O2 sensor, and it runs like new again.

4.3 coolant sensor


Along with the vacuume leaks I would check the carb. The accelerator pump might be out of adjustment or something else in the carb. Currently I have the same problem with mine and I just adjusted it and for 1 day so far it's ran fine but I have a holley on mine. Carb may be dirty also.

The truck sometimes barely starts. then once it does, it idles fine. but when you give hard acceleration, it falls on its face. not the fuel pump or the filter, and definately not spark. its a 96 chevy 350...


Lets go back to the fuel pump. I am working on one now that has the same symptoms.It turns out it is the fuel pump. Still pumping fuel, just not enough pressure. Hard start, idles fine give it some fuel and dies. One other thing that I can think of that will do this is clogged catalytic converters.

1998 Ford Taurus OHV 3.0L. Just replaced both heads. One head was cracked around all three exhaust valves and the valves, seats, seals, and guides were cooked in the other head. Now replaced the car seems...


it could be a poor fuel pump not suppling enough fuel to the injectors when required,a fuel pressure test and flow test should be done.it also could be a cat as when your accelerating you are trying to push out as much exhaust gas as possible and if the cat is plugged it causes back pressure to the point the exhaust stops flowing causing the car to fall on its face.then when you back off there isn`t as much exhaust gas to push out the exhaust system and it runs better.you can get an exhaust back pressure test done to see if this is a problem.

Can't get speed go up hills


That's often the sign of a clogged fuel filter. Running on level ground or not trying to accelerate hard, enough fuel can get through for the engine to make the power you need. But when you try to punch it to accelerate quickly, or you try to go up a hill (basically anytime max power is needed), the car can't flow enough fuel to the engine to make that power, and the car seems to fall on its face. Change your fuel filter out and see if that helps.

When you open the hood of the the car have a buddy accelerate in park and listen for a vacuum leak this is the likely cause it sounds lik your loosing boos pressure. Also, get a tune up there maybe a list of problems. Hopefully it's not your transmission!
