When I give my car gas it doesn't seem to want to go it sputters. I can let of gas and push again and moves fine. My check engine light is on and now when I put the car in gear fills like it wants to die.

I have a 93 mercury cougar, 3.8. When I first start it up and give it gas it'll sputter then stall and the check engine light will come on and it won't start again unless I give it gas and even after it...


It needs a gascap. You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. A Code will be set if the cap is loose or missing.

There are other possible reasons for your drivability problems, but get the scan, put on a gascap and fix scan results.

have the fuel pressure checked if it is ok then you most likely have a bad cam or crank sensor.. is the check engine light on? that will help to pinpoint the issue. if no check engine light then most likely its a fuel pump.

2004 kia sedona ex -just over 100k miles - On cold start after having not been run over night it starts fine, for the 1st few minutes of driving when you push on the gas there is a sputtering/shaking...


It is odd that there are no codes registered. Have the scanner connected while you simulate the condition and get the check engine light.

Since we do not have codes handy I would suspect, bad wiring. Have the fuel pressure tested. The problem may be from the lack of fuel being supplied even if the throttle is stepped on. Check the sparks from all of the plugs. When you check the sparks from the hi-tension wire, do it one at a time to check which causes the sputter.

Other than that it could be loose wiring or vacuum lines. If you have carb cleaner handy or throttle spray, try spraying the intake of the car. At times it may help.

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0 I6 with about 155k miles that is having intermittent issues. I just recently had to replace my muffler because of the car backfiring. This problem doesn't happen...


Have it checked with a computer diagnostics. It sounds like it could be a bad sensor, quite possibly your oxygen sensor. A bad sensor could cause the computer to think your engine needs more fuel.
