I have a 1998 4 cylinder Toyota Camry. There was a loud noise from underneath of the car which was followed by loud noise, like a Harley motorcycle. I was also experiencing some issues with a lack of power being given to the car even w/ the gas pedal being pushed down to the floor. With the gas pedal pushed down the floor the RPMs would jump between 3-5 and the noise would get louder. I wasn't able to get passed 30-45 (60 coasting) while driving. Once stopped we open up the hood and the exhaust

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power a 2500-3000rpm when you accelerate hard on the gas pedel, however if you press down on the gas pedal slowly the power will increase all the way up to 6000rps with no power lost. The power is only lost when you press on the gas pedal fast or hard all the way to the floor of if you try to accelerate full power from a dead stop. Thanking you in advance.


It sounds like a fuel delivery issue so it could be many things such as low fuel pressure from the pump,clogged or partially pluged fuel filter, a malfunctioning throttle posisitioning sensor (if you have a check engine light on) or if its turbo it c ... 1991 Lexus LS 400

My 2003 gmc sierra loses power sometimes. the truck seems fine when in park or neutral but doesn't want to move in drive(lack of power, have to put accelerator to floor to get truck to move). it seems to be flooding with gas because exhaust smells like gas and it burns way more gas than normal. seems to work better with little gas in tank. I have changed fule pump, fuel filter, and plugs, makes no difference

I was driving to the gym when my car died on me. it still had power and tryied to turn over but wouldn't start. I thought maybe it was out of fuel because the fuel guage is broke. I pushed it into the gas station and put gas in and it still wouldn't start. I then waited a little bit and tried again and all of a sudden all power is lost now, no lights, radio nothing will work. I looked under the hood just infront of the firewall on the driver side it looks like oil or power steering fluid has spr

1992 Saturn is having a problem running on freeway at 70 for long periods of time. Car loses power when you push on gas and slows down and then dies. My car will run but sputters and spits and acts like it ain't getting gas when i push the throttle harder but only when going after 50 mphs for a medium time of being over 50 mphs. Just replaced the Fuel pump and alternator and serpentine belt. Thinking its the map sensor or fuel sensor any help please. Thank you for your time. Jesse E.

When I drive my 1996 town and country chrysler van and I push the gas down the car loses power. It makes a loud banging sound. Sometimes it will start to go a little and **** really hard and then you can push the gas all the way down and it will do absolutely nothing. My daddy thought it might be the cadillac converter (spelling?). If I let the van sit for awhile it will usually start back and drive norma. What do you think the cause of this could be?


Has the service engine soon light come on ?This could be caused by a lot of different things, don't replace parts until you know for sure what the problem is otherwise you will just be throwing your money away,If the service e ... 1996 Chrysler Town & Country
