Perhaps a trouble code scan would be beneficial, so that you get the right part the first time. Could be a few things, so why gamble, spend $20-$30 have it scanned, and possibly save $100's

Pathfinder "cuts out" at 2,300 rpm


Replace your MAF, its a little pricey around $280.00 or so but this will clear the code but make sure you have the ECM reprogrammed to perform a "learning" sequence since sometimes the code will not clear even though the vehicle will run like new. This reprogramming will most likely have to be a dealer performed procedure.

My 1997 Jimmy runs fine in idle when I take off the vechile is fine until it reaches 20 mph it won't accelerate and the rpms increase up to 3000 but no speed. What's wrong it's a 4 wheel d


Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

Why did my engine stop accelerating just stay at idle


Your accelerator pedal is bad. The IVS (Idle Validation Switch) is probably not shutting off, or the potentiometer in the pedal went bad.
Hopefully you do not have adjustable pedals as the pedal assy. can be expensive for those.

1995 saturn sl2 ticking noise when accelerating


these are known for carbon build up on the valves that cause several problems.this could be the problem as the carbon can cause the valves to stick a bit in the valve guides while its running and show up as a ticking noise with the gas applied.have the top end service done which cleans the fuel system injectors and any carbon build up on the back of the valves.if this gets bad enough it can cause the cam holders to break locking up the motor if the piston hits the valve.another thing to check is oil pressure and the lifters may be worn to the point that they need replacing.check the cam lobes as well if worn these can cause a ticking noise on acceleration.

Engine hesitation up until 45 mph. Rough engine idling, hard to accelerate


Could be the spark plugs! Run AC Delco the factory made these trucks to run best with this brand. Bad gas could cause a truck to run rough sometimes trash in the bottom of your gas tank from runnin' regular. Check your CAT convertor as well sometimes they become clogged and constrict airflow from goin' out the exhaust and back up what needs to escape from the engine. Your airfilter could be clogged as well. Hope this was helpful! Good luck

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low


Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

1995 pontiac bonneville stalls


I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.

I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.
