When I take off it sputters, up to 40 to 60 mph it sputters, what is that ? I just bought this '97 Nissan Maxima, it runs real good except that problem. We've tried putting injector fluid in it, it works for a while, then returns to the sputtering. I'm thinking a tune up would help, but we don't know


This could be water in the gas lines or, you may have wire and plug issues as well. I would take this car in for a full scale tune up. make sure they check the distributor points as well. Changing the fuel pump wouldn't hurt at all. ... 1997 Nissan Maxima

My 98 Taurus (with a 105,000 miles)sputters. Was initially doing it at higher speeds. Is now sputtering at lower and progressively getting worse to where I am idling, I think it is going to stall out on me. I have put in a new fuel filter, oil change, tune up, wires replace, belt replaced, coil replaced. I love my car and I realize because of her age that it is time to replace things...but my pocket book is taking a beating! The engine light still is coming on and it is still sputtering...help!

I tuned the 350 throttle body fuel injected engine. New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter and pvc. The engine ran well before and even better after. Nice smooth idle. Nice smooth ride.

My 2004 Lincoln LS is missing, it sputters when I take off and the engine light continues to come back on. Had the #3,4,5 coils changed and ignition gasket valves changed, spark plugs also and it is still doing it. Took it to Firestone for Diagnostic test, they stated to change the #5 coil, ignition gasket valves upper and fuel tune-up cleanser-still doing the same thing.

Hi, i own a 2001 S-500 and after clowning around on the highway with a 2010 440hp camero my engine started making this noise. It's not a bearing noise or pully noise, or any thing like that, it's just this weird roaring noise when I'm riding down the street. If i sit in park and rev the engine i can hear it, but when i take the air cleaner off the noise goes away. I'm really tempted to take the air cleaner off and take a ride around the block, but I'm really not comfortable doing that, is this s

My 2001 Mazda Tribute sputters when in gear (R, or D), and when accelerating whilst taking off, I really have to put my foot down for the vehicle to move... also when drive along at a high speed, and its shifts into 4th, (RPM below 2000), it sputters and jumps around quite a bit.... So basically, sputters at low RPM.. Do you have any idea what the cause of this might be? .. Thanks

Have replaced TPS twice. Take it apart put it back to gether runs fine for a will then later sputters and jerks. I think it may be a wire problem. But right now the engine wont start. when it does run will run well for a while then sputters again. the gas has to be in just the right spot for it to increase speed. or will sputter and not run well. Could it be the ignition coil. Not sure if it is a spark or fuel problem. Not a mechanical with gages and toold to check.

My Windstar 2001 has the P301 code and is sputtering despite a very recent tune-up (everything was changed from the spark-plug to the coil). The trouble was there before the tune-up and is still there after the tune-up. also and I dont know if it's related but the car seems to have trouble shifting gear. The rpm goes to 3500 before shifting to second and then it almost immediately shifts to 3rd. Thanks Ghis

We have a 04 Navigator, we replaced several air ride height sensors and solenoids. We re-scaned and had the following C1991 and C1990 and it wouldn't take the re-programing. Ford suggested we replaced the VDM, same problem , air ride suspension light on. The air ride has worked excellently since replacement the height sensors, it seems like a programming problem only. However, now it has been suggested to replace the compressor. Please help

When i start the car it idles ruff and dies sometimes the check engine light is on. It dies while trying to drive when you let off the throttle. I have an 89 Buick lesabre. It usually takes my car anywhere from 3-10 tries before starting. Once it does start, it sputters, and sometimes dies if I don't hit the gas pedal. It's even died while driving. It barely wants to take off when I press the gas, it takes about 30 seconds to get to 40 mph, and now it doesn't want to go any faster.


Could be the O2 sensors ... 1989 Buick LeSabre
