I have a 02 lancer oz rally. Yesterday I left work stopped at a gas station and filled up. As I went to leave I put the car in first gear with no problem but when I pushed the clutch again to stop the car started to jump forward a couple times like the clutch wasn't wanting to engage. By the time I got home the car had done this 5 or 6 times. Now it has only done this when I stop and put the car back in first all other gears seem fine. I didn't notice any change in the way the clutch feels. Anyo

I have a 2006 Cobalt and I'm experiencing some problems with it. Suddenly, it's acting like there is an electrical surge going through it. When I'm stopped at a red light, the speedometer goes up to 120 and the radio surges and gets loud. I'm not even moving. Then when I go to take off, the car doesn't seem to want to go. If I hit the gas, the car cuts out and I have to let off the gas a few times before it goes normally. When I'm driving, all is fine.. it's just when I'm stopped that this

Idling Problems I have a 1998 Eclipse GS-T. The other night I drove the car without problems and parked it for about 6 hours. When I went to turn the car on, it acted like the battery was dead. We got a jump, the car started, and I started driving, but every time I took my foot off the gas it wanted to stall out. I ended up driving it home reving the engine the whole time. My husband had the aternator/voltage regulator checked, it was fine. My battery tested dead however, so we replaced it. Addi

Hi i have a 98 honda accord lx and i wanted to know wether it was my trammy or the clutch because when ever i do a rolling stop or if i had jus finished backing up nd as soon as i put it in drive and press the gas the car like stuters and so far none of the local mechanics we gone to dont seem to know what the problem is or at times say the car is running fine
I had the same problem on a 1998. The computer controlled mixture at idle is not working right, and idle is dipping below 700 rpm. The culprit was a dirty throttle body intake. This tends to foul the plugs as well, after a few minutes of idling, so i ... 1998 Honda Accord
Where do I start I bought 1990 Buick Century Custom its a V6 and it had been sitting for about 5 months. The car ran great the first day we had it then we were traveling and had been driving about 110 miles and stop to get some food turned the car off for only a few minutes. The car started fine but when we went to pull out and gave it gas it acted like it was going to stall out so we pulled over. Then the car would roll over but wouldn't start. It acted like it wasn't getting enough gas. So I r
To avoid replacing unnecessary parts, buy a chilton or haynes manual and a digital multi-meter. Follow the component tests outlined in the book and see what you find.Two items I'd check first is the MAP sensor and the vacuum hose that goes to it (che ... Buick Century
Car stalled I was driving and my 94 Acura Vigor with a leaking water pump. I put water in and while driving tempature was showing fine. I did not realize the tempature gauge only works off of pressure so it might have gotten hot. Car acted like it was running out of gas and then stalled. I checked and it has gas but no water. It cooled down and tried to start and acted like it was mis-firing. Now when I try to start it the car only turns over and will not start. Your thoughts please. Thanks.
These vehicles overheat real fast when u noticed the water pump leak yu should have replaced it now i think that you have over heated the head and the heads have to be removed , check for cracks and most probably you will end up doing a valve job and ... 1994 Acura Vigor

I have a 1995 Buick Regal with a 3.8 V6. Car will start just fine on a cold start but will not continue to run unless you hold the engine on at least 3000 rpms for about 30 seconds. it will then idle just fine. It must idle for about 2-3 minutes before putting it in gear and taking off or it will **** back and forth while going down the road and it acts like its not getting gas unless you press the gas pedal to the floor. but if warmed up good before taking off, the car will do just fine for abo

I have a 1999 mazda protege 1.6 liter and the car was driving fine until about 4 days ago. it acts like its not getting gas especially on an inclined road. it jerks and acts like its gonna run out of gas or stall. my friends dad who is a mechanic told me that it may be the fuel filter but my fuel filter is on the fuel pump which is in the gas tank. so we checked it out and theres nothing wrong with the filter or pump. so im thinking that its the catalytic converter. whats up?
My car has a similar problem, if you take it to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts they will usually scan it for codes at no charge. My problem is a bad Map Sensor. Hope this helps. ... Mazda Protege
Sometimes when I try to start the truck, it won't turn over the first time, then the second time it will start fine, can't idle for too long; engine will shut off on it's own. When driving about 10 to 15 miles, it will shutter like it want's to shut off and I step on the gas to get it going. Driving and the gas petal will push back at me and the car feels like it want's to shut off again, but I gently put gas to it and it goes.
Sounds like you have a fuel pump failing or a clogged fuel line from a dirty filter. I would bring it to a garage and have the fuel system pressure checked. This will asnwer questions about weather or not this is the problem. ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

My car is acting like it wants to run out of gas every time i go over 45mph.. when i stop at a light or stop sign, before i get ready to go the car dies, i learned to fix the problem about when i stop.. i give the car a little gas while my foot is still on the brake to give it a little umph.. when i get ready to go.. help me... i brought it to an auto shop and talk to many mechanics.. they said it sounds like my throttle sensor..is that what it is?

2000 Isuzu Hombre/Chevy S-10, 2.2L 4cyl. It starts fine, but wants to stall until it warms up a bit. After that, putting it into gear, it tries to stall. Any acceleration at first, it wants to stall. Once its up and running, (on the highway), if I let off the gas then try to accelerate, it acts like its starved of fuel or is getting too much. If I accelerate quickly from a stop, it just sputters until I back off the gas enough for it to "catch up" to itself and then goes fine. Same issue going u

My transmission was leaking, I got it to stop but I now I need to know; how do I know when its full? I was told that I cant let it overflow because it could cause more problems. My car is also I want to say slipping but I dont think its that. Its kinda acting like that tho. The best way for me to explain it is...When I hit the gas harder than normal it starts acting like Im taking my foot on and off the gas peddle when Im not. what could be causing that?
