My 95 VW Jetta III GL with a 2.0L is stuttering. It occurs only when aplying light throttle at speed. Seems to be fine when you are accelerating (under a load) to reach speed through all gears with no apparent lack of power. It generally is brought on after car is at an idle such as sitting at a traffic light. It is temprarily corrected by turning engine off and immediately restarting while in motion. It will be fine until you have to stop and car is allowed to sit at idle for a short period. As

Engine stumbles 1987 Chrysler 5th Avenue, 120,900 miles, 318 V8, Holley 6282 carburetor. Ports formerly for idle mixture adjustment are plugged. Car driven by little old man with light foot.

What can cause a 2005 Escape's Theft light to appear and the engine to hesitate mostly at speed? This occurs unpredictably, lasting for a second or so. This has also occurred while backing out of a parking space. Have read much about this on the Web--seems like a morass of conjecture on the part of well-meaning individuals. "Getting the various Codes--TSBs, DTCs and the like--seems quite important. But all of this dealer-haze; the replacing of parts, almost at random. What is that? There are so

The problem starts with a 2.5 japenese engine that replaced the original 3.0 liter. I was told by Engine World in Houston, Tx that this engine would be cheaper and more economical on fuel than the 3.0 liter engine so I bought it and had it installed. Intially, everything looked and ran ok but as soon as a week rolled by all he'll seems to have broken loose. Currently, when the car is idling in park, fuel flow is works fine. Once a shift to drive occurs, fuel flow drops. Rpm's only reach 2500 eve

The engine revs to 5000 rpm and seems like it will keep going higher if i do not cut the engine. Also when changing gears the engine is revving up to 4000 RPM before it shifts. I have only allowed this whe going from first then second then into third. I parked my car because i was afraid i would blow the engine. My car is a 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS 2.0L 4CYL.
You are correct that engine damage can occur due to this high engine RPM problem. Your problem seems to be with the throttle return and/or the throttle shaft, causing the throttle not to close all the way, leaving it open as if your pressing the acce ... Hyundai Elantra

On the drive home the engine started to **** accompanied by a whiney swishy noise while traveling at about 65 MPH on level surfaces; when I accelerated the engine seemed to settle down.

I have a 1994 Park Avenue that was owned by an elderly woman. Vehicle has ~99000 miles on it. Overall problem is random sputtering, loss of engine power at idle or between stop & go traffic. I have a hunch there is a fuel system problem, as the car was sitting for several months unusued. I have noticed that the Engine Fans come on MAX speed with key turned to ON position, even if the engine is cold and not running. Pulling the fuse for the fan does seem to allow the car to idle without a s

When I accelerate to enter the freeway the engine cuts out and when you floor it the problem worsens. I can also hear some sort of vibrating noise when I do this. The other day the engine when I was doing a test drive, the engine just died, but did restart. I thought maybe the problem occured when I had the fuel injectors cleaned at EZ Lube, since the car doesn't seem the same since they did that. I took it back, but all they could find was a loose air filter. They tightened that up saying that

Okay, this car has been giving me alot of problems. Currently I am experiencing a starting problem with the vehicle. This seems to occur when the engine is warm, yet sometimes even then it starts perfectly. I have replaced several parts on the vehicle, had a recent major service etc. I have been told my fusebox needs replacing - its worn out and the one fuse has been burnt. Yet my friend took a look at it and it seems okay to him... Would a faulty fusebox cause such behaviour in the vehicle?

1999 volvo v70 awd xc. Trouble code p1618. Symptoms are it wont start. LImp mode? Seems that after testing and resetting codes, we turn the key, it starts as normal for about 3 seconds, then dies. Trying to start it again results in no real "ignition" allowed. Seems computer is telling fuel pump to stop or some relay. Tested and bypassed relay. same same. Pump operating normally. Only other issue is the up-arrow light is flashing on the dash sometimes (and check engine). The flashing arrow light

I have a 91 ford thunderbird sport V8 5.0L HO Recently I have noticed a smell of burning plastic and small white whisps of smoke coming out from under the engine at red lights/ after driving. The smell usually occurs after driving 90-110 km/h. It seems to be coming from the engine close to the firewall. Any idea as to what the problem is and how much it might be to repair?

Running Hot I am having problems with my 91' Lexus LS400 holding onto antifreeze coolant. It seems to have small leak in the front center of the engine. As soon as the engine is cut off it is amost like a valve is letting loose and majority of the fluid runs to the floor. More recently it is allow steam anf presser to escape almost as if air is coming through a hole that can be reached. Please help if you have an suggestions, college student just trying to get to class!!!!
This may be a bad water pump. There is a small hole (called a 'weep hole') at the center of the shaft. When the pump goes bad, the coolant will leak out here. If you can get a look at that area, it should be obvious where the leak is coming from. ... 1991 Lexus LS 400
When engine is hot, if I accelerate too fast to pass, a very loud noise begins, almost like a motorcyle being revved. This goes on for a few seconds then stops. The engine does not seem to lose power or anything when this occurs. What could it be?
Check the resonator on the exhaust to see if it has come apart on the inside,also the fan clutch,and pulleys need to be inspected to see that the noise is not there. ... 1997 Cadillac DeVille
My 2004 chevy impala has an intermittent problem. After sitting at idle for a while it begins to idle very rough and occasionally dies. It seems to clear up after reving the engine a couple of times. When this occurs it also seems to cause an acceleration hesitation and cuts out at highway speed. Any ideas?

Hi, I have an AUDI A8, 1998 model in beautiful condition. It has the 2.5 TDi engine. I have two problems. First of all at between 1,500 and 2,000 rpm the engine starts to "search" with power rising and dropping but the rev. counter seems to remain constant. The second problem is an intermittent one and has occurred both before and after having new front brake pads fitted.

My (1999) Saab 95 (2.3 litre) engine cuts out without warning. This tends to happen after slowing down. It immediately re-starts as if there had been nothing wrong and functions perfectly otherwise. The computer system says there have been no faults and I have had the throttlebody induction flushed. The garage says the car seems perfect, but after a couple of miles, the problem occurs again. The only other thing I have noticed, is that the power steering seems slightly heavier than it used to be

My 1989 350 suburban show the oil pressure maxed above 60 on the gauge. this occurred at the same time as a leak occurred in the intake manifold releasing a small amount of water into the oil. I have replaced the intake manifold gaskets, oil, oil filter and antifreeze. there seems to be no more leaking of water to oil. the engine sounds good, no ticking.
Sometimes you can get a little water trapped. you can try removing the sending unit and cleaning it. you will probably have to replace the unit. the pressure is acceptable though as long as youre not pourong oil out through the seals. ... 1989 Chevrolet Suburban
