You most likely have a fuel pressure problem, have you changed the fuel filter? If not change it, if it still runs bad you may need a new fuel pump as well, a plugged filter can quickly destroy the fuel pump.

    Did you test the fuel pressure before you rated me??? You have to do the real work, I can only offer advice!

How to fix on a 2005 dodge neon went driving the car till I get to a speed of 35 mile per hours it try to shut down and I release the accelerator and it goes back to normal


releasing the gas pedal and it gets going again
not very safe

is the engine light on
could be any faulty sensor in this engine diagram

maf clean might help
if a spark issue needs chasing
it could be a fuel problem
maybe bad fuel or blocked fuel filter

My 88 toyota camry wont accelerate when i step on the gas pedal


tests:

cruise at say 45mph ok?
if i accelerate , it bogs then catches up?
if i accelerate, it bogs and never catches up?
if i go WOT, wide open throttle it has full power up a hill after the bog?

these test , are the KEY tests.
this tells me what is wrong.
i hope the car is tuned up, if not , why no? the 60k mile done?

When I drive it 40 miles an hour it runs great. But when I take it to 60 to 70 miles an hour the engine gets loud.


Have you had this problem long? is there a check engine light on? have you done any new repairs and then the problem come to be?

No problem, but concerned about recent news of clutch sticking and car traveling at 100 miles per hour. Is there a recall on this? Or do you have some particular advise? We have a Toyota Camry 2009.


you are probably thinking of a master or slave cylinder going bad making you unable to disengage your clutch.( very unlikly on an 09 ) even if this happened, you stiil have control of the gas pedal, and could pull the shifter into neutral as a last resort, im almost beting you heard this in traffic court

Loss of power on acceleration from a stop


I would think its a transmission problem. have you tried shifting it manually. starting out in low or 1st gear then 2nd and then drive?

How to improve the fuel efficiency?


my 2 cents -

1. You didn't specify your exact model, on this site you'll fond your answer - http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/bymodel/1989_Toyota_Camry.shtml

2. There are a few ways to do this, here's one -
- Fill your gas tank to the very top.
- Write down your odometer or reset you trip meter.
- Drive your car till it's time to fill it up again.
- When it's time to fill you tank, fill it to the very top (preferd in the same station, in the same pump).
- divide the number of miles (or kilometers) you drive, by the amount of gas you filled, This is of course only true for this gas tank, fuel consumption is effected by many things, load, driver, type of miles you do (city or hoghway), etc..

3. Service your car regularly, make sure tire pressure is correct, don't drive like you are racing.

Good luck,
Eitan.
