I have a 2001 Grand Marque with 151437 miles on it and never had a problem with it. Recently I drove through a very large rain puddle and now my car sputters and accelerates slowly. Oh and the check engine light comes on. I took the car to a service station and they tried to tell me I needed a oil change and air filter, I just had that done the day before I drove through the rain puddle. They then said I needed a fuel filter. I just had a NEW fuel PUMP AND FILTER PUT ON TWO MONTHS AGO. SO HE THE

Hi, i drive a 1985 ford Bronco. It has a carburated motor. I noticed lately that it wont keep an idle. When im not driving or revving the engine, it slows down to a sputter and dies on me. I bought carb cleaner for it and sprayed some down the valve by the air filter. Once i turned the car on shortly after doing that, it seemed to have CHOKED the car out or something. It wont start AT ALL now!!!!! :( Did i break it? What's the deal???


Naw,you did not break it,it may have flooded it out.The carburetor most likely is flooding already,and the carb.cleaner just helped it stall the rest of the way.Hold the accelerator to the floor,and turn it over until it starts,continue to hold the p ... Ford Bronco

2004 Kia Optima has 3 check engine lights on for the following codes - 0741, 0455, 1529. Is this safe to ignore, or how soon to have serviced? Car runs fine, except when stopping for lights, then it kind of skips like it's about to stall but it stays running while I'm waiting for light to change and then accelerates normally. Also, car has hard time starting after fueling, but starts fine at all other times. Don't know if this is related to any of these codes, or just a dirty fuel filter.

I have a 92 mazda mx3 that spits, sputters, chokes, hesitates, etc throughout the entire rpm range in every gear under acceleration. When I let off the gas, the engine smooths out and sounds like it should. Disconnected the maf, car stalled. Checked intake tube, no cracks, rips and is in relatively good shape. Previous owner installed a Spectre cone air filter right onto the end of the maf. Found a vacuum line that leads to nowhere, tried plugging it with my finger with the engine running

I have a 2002 Volkswagen Golf with a 2.0 engine. The 'check engine' light starts to blink and the car starts to shake violently, and it doesn't accelerate past about 25km/h. Then after riding it that way for a few minutes, the engline light stops blinking, and just stays on. The car shakes a little bit (not as violent), and the car accelerates past 25km/h but has a hard time doing so. I've taken it to the mechanic and the first time, they replaced the catalytic convereter and the spark plugs.


There are a LOT of problems that could have this effect on an engine ... but from this description it sounds like your timing chain might have skipped a tooth. If your timing is off, the pistons will not fire at the correct time, and will cause a vi ... Volkswagen Golf
