Check the rubber air intake hose from the air cleaner box to the engine,(take it off) it may be cracked, when the engine moves the crack opens and all that extra air chokes out the engine, saw this allot on escorts in my 20 years as Ford dealer Tech.

Takes gas good at an idle our of gear, but when you try to drive it it won't take gas because it bogs down. You can feather the gas and make it go but you can't make it accelerate. What's the problem?

Please help my 1999 jeep grand cherokee has been dying out. As soon as I start to slow down or I'm at a red light it wants to die out. When I give it gas its fine but once again when I begin to slow...


sounds like a fuel problem. when was fuel filter changed last! if filter is ok, remove and clean the idle air control it may be sticking. this is what controls idleing, on todays cars. ( IAC ). good-day ! there is another thing you can do. clean out around throttle plate of throttle body and make sure aircleaner is ok. this should help!!
