Answers :

Is your check engine light on? If so have someone run a diagnostic scan to try and pinpoint the culprit. This could be caused by any number of ignition/emission/ or fuel system problems such as filters, sensors,plugs,etc. If I had to guess than I'd check the EGR valve system and possibly the O2 sensors. A "clogged" catalytic converter would suggest this. Did you notice a rotten egg like smell from the car. Converters usually rust away these days...

2005 KIA RIO Loss of engine power accompanied with the check engine light. Max speed about 28MPH, got 5+ codes. Over the past many months the check engine light would come on for a short period of time. On occasion when the accelerator was pressed after a green light or when moving into a traffic circle there was loss of power resulting in a very slow acceleration (ie hesitation.) Lately, when the hesitation was noticed it was an indication that the check engine light would come on soon. Recentl

I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am 3.4l automatic, 159XXX miles. Have been having a problem with hesitation. It happens at idle, cruising, or accelerating. It seems very random, some trips, it doesn?t happen at all. Though most trips it happens a lot. When it is happening, its like a short burst of power loss, it may happen several times in a row, giving almost a ?bucking? feeling. There is no loss of power at any rpm when it is not happening, I had thought perhaps partially clogged catalytic conver

I just had the mass air flow sensor replaced in my 2001 merceded-benz c240 thinking it would solve the hesitation and loss of power. There is no power when I press on the gas peddle with about a 3-4 second delay before the car begins to accelerates. Otherwise the car idles and runs fine. If I turn the car off and restart it the car usually runs fine. Seems as if I am resetting something when I restart it. Any suggestions on what it may be? Thanks
