I have a 1965 6 cylinder mustang and it was running well and recently I was driving and the car started to loose power. It seems like it does not have power i would press the gas and there was no response. I took it to the mechanic and they told me it was the carburator and I had the carburator rebuild by a professional and nothing. the car starts and when you press the gas it idles well then all of a sedden it starts to loose power and shakes. Once I take it out for a drive it drives well but


What needs to be checked and verified is the point gap. And if it is adjusted to the correct dwell, the timing will need to be set again also. Oil inside the ditributor and contaminating the points as well as the condensor is not good. You probably h ... 1966 Ford Mustang

2002 grand am gt. I have the 3.4 motor also. It starts up fine and idle is smooth at start up. When I put it into drive and start to pull out it has no power / sputters all over the place like the sparkplug wires are off. After warm up and driving a bit even at a stop light or parked position it's like I have a huge cam in my motor. Idles from 300 - 650 rpms at a constant fluctuation "spell check" From touching the gas to 3/4 it has no power BUT when I get past 3/4 to floored it runs like new. W

Well...my ball park guess on this is just a tune up. The engine light is usually showing a misfire. If the plugs are bad then the cylinder is not igniting the fuel and it is flooding out. With what is here this makes sense to me. Let me know what i ... Cars & Trucks

I have a 2006 trailblazer, while i am driving down the road i loose all power and it dies, i wait about five minutes and it starts right back up, it also does the same thing if i stop and idle for any length of time, would it be the ignition, idler bar or an electrical problem?


{: ) The cause of this kind of trouble is usually electrical. Top of the list would be the ignition switch, the rest are the battery and the connections, the charging system, poor grounding, engine fuseblock, and a dirty throttle body. ... 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer

My 1995 Maxima tends to idle rough and has loss of power. I have heard a slight whining noise coming from the engine compartment, perhaps a loose belt. Seems to drive OK on the open road over distance. Sometimes, it almost shuts off when coming to a stop. Also, sometimes hard to start even though battery and alternator are new.

Most probable cause is a fuel filter is partially clogged. The charging system is ok, when the engine rpm slows down, the charging system will drop in voltage. Some vehicles have a minimum rpm speed required to bring in the charging system.\015 ... 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 2500

Inconsistent idle After the car starts the engine's idle will drop low enough to cause the engine to die, and it drops in one second after the vehicle is started. The vehicle will run as long as I keep the accelerator down placing the RPM's above 2000 in-between gears. Vehicle drives somewhat boggy like if there is water in the tank. Also recently the power steering went out because somebody kept putting to much fluid into the reservoir.

I have a 1998 hyundai tiburon with a manual transmission and when idling runs fine most of the time and then suddenly starts to run rough and then shuts off. It also runs just fine most of the time while driving, but sometimes when I am coming to a stop with my foot off the gas it stalls. Also just today it has started to feel like it has less power when I press on the gas. I think my problem is progressing any ideas from anyone?

I have a 93' sierra 6 cylinder 2 wheel drive, once engine warms up it sputters and loses power. If you shift from drive to reverse it stalls and won't start. When engine has cooled it starts like a champ and idle's beautifully. I have changed the fuel filter and the ignition coil. The gas tank is new also.


The problem may be the engine coolant sensor. If the sensor fails the engine will stop when normal operating temperature is reached . When engine is cold it will start. ... 1993 GMC Sierra

Started car this afternoon for short errand. Drove 8 miles to store and when ready to leave store car would not crank, engine would spin but would not start. Waited about 20 minutes checking under hood for any loose wiring and repeatedly tried starting engine. Was about to give up and tried 1 last time and while trying to start engine repeatedly patted foot pedal and then car finally started. My son also said it seemed weaker while driving as far as power did not have the normal feel. 217k miles

I had to take my 2008 F250 6.4 turbo diesel to the dealer because it was loosing power, It had codes poo87,p0088 and p2291. I cleared these codes after I changed the fuel filter, but lose of power issue came back after 10mi of driving. If I stop and shut of the engine, restart it, the full power comes back, after about 10mi. the lose of power issue starts again. Each time this happens the cruise control also stops working.

Just put a new/reman distributor on my 1990 Honda Civic 2dr Hatchback DX Model, 1.5 fuel injection, Auto. After installing distributor car did start but it took a couple turns to start. Seemed to idle fine but when I took it for a test drive, car started hesitating and did not have any power. Seems like it is missing. Thought I lined up distributor gear with cam gear. Also my check engine light is on now. Is it out of time and how do I fix it.

Vacuum hoses my mustang is having problems due to hoses. i've had this problem before, but i don't know which hoses are causing it. my rpm idles high for long when i start the car, and when it idles, it will sometimes squeak then dip far below 1000 rpm and then die. it usually idles just under 1000 rpm. it's also losing power giving me bad mileage. i was told it was because a hose that creates a vacuum is loose and needs to be connected firmly. which hose is this and where is it loca

I have an 2000 alero. It has had problems for weeks now by dying in a turn right or even left. It has also died with pulling up in a turn lane or @ the top of a hwy. off ramp. I have noticed fluctuations in power when applying the accelerator pedal in take off and it has died in an idle as I wait at a light. If I put the car in park while parked in an idle it has less chance of the engine quiting. I can always start the 2000 alero every time and drive 30 miles a day. It's just that a lot in idle

I have a 1995 Lumina and the transmission clunks very bad when you stop. When driving down the road, the trans is very smooth, but when I stop, it clunks very loud and goes into neutral. I have to put the car in park, then back into drive to start driving again. Also when at idle, it sounds like there is something loose inside the tranny, as it rattles until the engines RPM's are increased to about 1500.

Its an R plate S40 TD with 156000 on the clock. When the engine is idleing their is blue smoke comeing from the exhaust and also if the revs drop below 2000rpm when driving their is a lack of power and blue smoke. The only way to stop the blue smoke is to get the turbo to kick in! Friends have told me that it is a fueling issue and i have already changed the fuel filter but with no joy. It also struggles to start up when cold and is prone to stalling when stopping until the engine has warmed up.


It is possible that your fuel regulator is leaking.\015\012\015\012On the throttle assembly, there should be a few vacuum hoses attached. Pull those off and shake it a bit to see if there is any fuel coming out of it.\015\012\ ... 2006 Volvo S40

Possibly electrical. When starting or while driving, all of my warning lights start to flash on and off at different times. Also the fuel, rpm, and temp. gauge will move out of control while I lose my automatic transmission. I can feel and hear a clicking sound coming from the shifting panel while this occurs. In addition, the power steering goes out. I have brought the car in four times and they still have not found the problem. They claimed to have found loose wires and replaced a computer par
