Your fuel pump suppose to Hum and gently vibrate only when working normally, clacking sound would only mean that it is having a hard time or inconsistently supplying gasoline into your engine. Have it checked and see if any improvement would happen.

1984. Why does it run fine during cold weather and sputter when it is warm and I punch the gas pedal?


could be low float level, low pump pressure/supply
blocked fuel filter
when cold the engine is running on choke setting which draws more fuel from the carby
when it is warm the choke is off and if you have a flat spot ( (sputter) , that indicates a lack of fuel or maybe a bad accelerator pump or power valve
if the carby is a holley then replace the power valve and overhaul the accelerator pump.

I've got a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee with the 5.2 v8 fuel injected Holley throttle body. My problem is while driving at soft or low acceleration it accelerates fine, but if you hit the throttle hard it


I would check the voltage on the throttle portion sensor with the engine off from idle to wide open throttle.If there are any dead spots, replace the sensor. If the tps checks out, you should check fuel pressure. If you have good fuel pressure, you may want to make sure there isn't a lot of slack in your timing chain. I don't believe you mentioned the mileage of your vehicle. Best of luck.

86 honda shadow VT500C flat spot in throttle about 1/4 throttle


The carbs are most likely clean, especially if they were soaked in real alkaline carb cleaner. Honda Shadows are very fussy about incoming air. If the air cleaner intake box is not fastened securely to the carburetor intakes the engine will run lean. The reason for the lean mixture is there is not enough negative pressure with the airbox disconnected and the carbs get too much air and not enough fuel.

I recently overhauled my jetta 2 1.8 motor. tdc are all in the right place.I am not sure the position of the distributor ? it does start but have dead spot when pulling of.


With the #1 at TDC Compression, the distributor rotor should be more or less in line with the locating cut-out piece in the distributor body. From there, the nearest lead tower will be #1 and the rest follow in the firing order in a clockwise order. Flat spots are normally attributed to fuel not getting into the manifold at the moment the throttle is opened ie. the accelerator pump on a carb model.

Dead spot on hard excell


If this happens right after you shift it is likely the check valve in the fuel line at the pump. If not occuring after the shift you may be experiencing spark blow out. Try reducing your plug gap to .035 and see if that helps. This is especially important if you have made any modifications that will increase your boost over stock levels.

My 1986 Ranger 2.9 liter is hard to start (i have to pump the gas to get it to start) once it starts it runs fine until it gets warmed up then when you step on the gas it falls flat no power will not move,...


Just taking a shot here as I have seen the same thing in the shop in that last month....I am going to throw you two scenarios as you don't say if it has a carb or F.I.
If it is Fuel Injection the filter or a weak pump would be the culprit.
If it is a carb engine there is an item called an accelerator pump. this pump pumps fuel into the throat unmixed so during startup and on acceleration it needs this raw fuel, on startup to just get fuel into the chambers and on acceleration when switching from the Idle to the venturi there is a dead spot that this pump covers for.. A 20 dollar rebuild kit for the carb is all you need. there should be a tag on the carb for the ID to give to the parts store..
