Question about Ford Escape

1 Answer

When stopping at a light, the truck is almost chugging and feels like its going to stall out. The dash lights start to flicker and the truck almost stalls out. You have to keep your foot on the gas for the truck not to surge/jolt while sitting at a stop light.

This set of symptoms is classic evidence of a stuck open EGR valve or malfunctioning EGR circuit. Keep in mind that a stuck open EGR valve may or may not set a diagnostic code in the computer.
The EGR valve is very easy to remove and clean which should remedy your issue and is generally good preventative maitenence practice. It is situated on a runner which goes from the air intake to the exhaust pipe/manifold.

What could be wrong with my Toyota Echo if the engine chugs while idling, and the car loses power when accelerating (stalling out if accelerating too quickly)?


There are numerous things that will cause this problem. If the check engine light is on, have the codes checked to see if there is a problem the computer has found to cause this issue. Even without the check engine light on, there may be a code stored. You can also do a visual inspection under the hood for any disconnected hoses causing vacuum leaks. These are the best places to begin with diagnostics

Grand prix started then stalled then started again, chugged a little and was good at all speeds. No lights came on the dash. What could cause that?


Bad Gas might be the culprit. If it continues to happen for extended periods of time, the stalling, that is, then I would be surprised if no codes are set in the computer.
