I have a 1995 Dakota sport 2.5L that loses power at freeway speeds. engine sounds like it starts to lug. road is flat. engine smooths out when acc. is pushed to the floor. once this starts the idle is real rough and starting from a stop is difficult. no error lights or codes. Problem goes away if I shut engine off and restart or coast downhill without using accelerator. Have had all tune parts replaced and my local mech. is stumped. Problem can go days or weeks between events.

Occasionally, my 1998 GMC will lose all power and cut off. This usually happens as I accelerate and even once in traffic. When I try to restart, I turn the key and there is no response. After fiddling with the light switch, radio knobs, etc., it restarts. I recently had a lot of engine work done, including filter replacements, thinking that was problem, but problem persists. Yesterday, while pulling out of a parking space, the truck simply died. After checking battery cables, which were tightly

Losing power My 07 Sprinter has a similar problem with losing power and VERY Slow acceleration after 20mph. If I pull over, shut down and restart it clears up for about another 500 miles. This started at 26k miles and is now at 46K miles and dealer has yet to solve this problem after many, many attempts. As we speak the dealer is putting on a new alternantor and battery as that failed yesterday. Dealer seems to be getting no cooperation from Chrysler. Any advise?

I have a 1998 Cherokee with auto gearbox, with petrol/LPG conversuion... My beast runs fine, but having driven 250 miles it had no power due to a fuel problem ?? Accelerator pedal ineffective , although engine restarted regularly cut-out again when put into gear... Occasionally cleared & able to drive a few miles before problem reoccurred & roadside help called, Mechanics said it could have been water on plugs from smalll radiaitor leak. Drove further 150 miles to home with no problems, Tod


I think water on the plugs would make it run rough. But, that would be from the cylinder head gasket leaking into the cylinders and not a radiator leak. It's possible that the leak at the head gasket sealed up. Do you have to add coolant to the radia ... 1998 Jeep Cherokee

Intermittent fault on grand cherokee. Car running fine then out of the blue, car starts jerking/kangarooing like it is being starved of fuel. Another thing that happens sometimes is that I lose power-steering when the above problem occurs and it is very difficult to steer. When this happens, the engine still runs but there is no drive(the vehicle won't move even though the transmission is still in drive). When I switch the ignition off and then back on again, this usually clears the problem. Ve

Ford Windstar (98) V6 3.0L power loss : While driving since a while suddenly the van begin to lose power. RPMs drops, speed come down slowly but could not increse power when trying to accelerate. Accelerating does nothing, the max RPM gets lower and lower as I drive. Shutting down the engine a few seconds/minutes then restarting, solves the problem temporarily. But a few minutes later problem starts again. Having this happen more often as the weather get hotter (>50-60 F). Also most of the time

Transmission fault When driving in low range (low gear ratio) and using my command shift feature together with the terrain response system, I sometimes get the message above which then tells me to stop safely. Then the suspension lowers. If I switch off the engine and restart the engine letting the diagnostics run first, then the error clears and I can continue. The problem is not persistent, but on a recent trip it happened about 10 times in an hour.
