Sea Foam fuel cleaner Autozone $10 pour in 1/3 can to 2gallons fuel. replace fuel filter or cleaner it with carb spray real good, pour just a little into the filter, now crank it up and get on it and go! : drive it for 10 -15 miles and see if this will work it way through all the vanish **** that is probably clogging up you fuel system,,,it the bikes doesn't start, push star it, and force it to go... sputtering and all, it took me 11 miles of crappy sputtering riding before the power was fully restored..this stuff works great. Im 90% sure this will fix ya problem. can i get a rating on this please, or i"ll start to loose my expert status, because a lot of people never get back to us with feedback or testimonials, i would really appreciate it. also if this doesnt work take some carb spray and spray all around the carb and vacuum lines and intake manifolds if the rpm increases theres your leak. take care and later!

Pickup surges acts like its out of gas, stalls when stopping and hesistates when accelerating

2 other common problems to check into is when engine acting up where is the oil gage at? If at low, either oil sensor is shot or the oil screen on your oil pump is clogged, which the latter happens a lot to dodge otherwise easy fix is your idle control motor, cheap as well . located right in back of your carb.

97 Tahoe hesitates and sometimes acts like it will stall when accelerating. Stalls when coming to a stop.

even if you hear pump run, dosent mean it has enough pressure. it is very possible this is the problem. could be engine miss as well. does it jerk when accellerating (light load, like in overdrive up a hill?) let me know.

Acceleration problem

possibly camshaft position sensor in the distributor, or weak fuel fump starts acting up when warm, or throttle position sensor. heat has a effect on sensors and electrical components in some weird and hard to find ways.

I have a 1996 Plym. Grand Voyager, hesitation & stalling.

If it works well at speed and acts up when slowing or stopped it doesn't sound like fuel filter or pump. You can try running injector cleaner through the engine to clean the carborator injectors or fuel injectors if you have those. Look at replacing the plugs and wires on the motor.

Engine hesitates or cuts out with a forward load but not ireverse

Check fuel pressure at idle it should read 30psi. If you have a weak fuel pump it will act just like you describe. Located intake and replace the fuel filter.
