Sounds like a fuel problem. Check the fuel filter. Check the fuel condition. Carb could need cleaning.

My zuma will run but when I stop it wont idle it shuts itself off also sometimes when I have the accelator all the way down it takes a bit before it accelerates why is it not workn properly?


sounds like a fuel problem. Try running a tank of premium gasoline this should solve your problem. You see short trips on any motor all the time is hard on them. They like to get out and stretch there legs..another words take it out for some longer trips and start using a better grade of gasoline. If this don't work clean your plug and your fuel system. Good luck..ps.Mobil and Shell are both very good fuels..all grades..

Try a different machine to read the codes then post a reply ,i have no idea what could cause this on this engine as remember that anything over 1.6/2.0 litre is regarded as a big negine here in europe ,most i work on are under 1.2 ,but if its not accelerating from idle then i would suspect a vacumn leak to one of the sensors but not having much practical experiance then i couldnt say exactly

I give it gas and it won't accelerate


Can be several problems, one the injectors can be clogged and not allowing the gas thru at a fat enough rate, two it could be a gas filter going bad.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle circuit and transfer ports clogged.
2. Air fuel mixture adjustment too lean.

My 2003 dodge stratus idles rough like it might die out then when you start pressing the gas to accelerate it has a tough time accelerating right away but then when it starts goin it gets smoother also...


check or replace fuel filter for clogging up. if it does clog up, then you will not get enough fuel to engine to run it properly. it will stall at stops, and be very sluggish on takeoff. check fuel pressure if need be. could also be a bad catylist convertor. so check above first. Rent a fuel pressure guage from advance or oreilley's and check fuel pressure if needed. they will tell you the proper fuel pressure for your car.
