try some injector cleaner ...you ad it to your gas... I had an issue where I was driving along and my car lost power and the lights came on. I was told that the float in the gas tank is set in a weird spot and if you have between 1/4 - 1/2 a tank of gas it can cause the car to do this because of the floats location. So now I just try to keep over 1/2 a tank of gas in the car and I haven't had any problem like that sense it happened a couple of years ago. Hope this helps someone.
What causes a car to jerk while driving can be based on many factors. A car can sputter due to engine compression issues, bad transmission, engine misfire, bad spark plugs or even low fuel.
Because it's an Audi and they suck!
Try disconnection your MAF ( mass airflow sensor ) and if it doesn't sputter when you accelarate, it means your sensor is gonzo.
Yes, that and dozens of other causes.Yes, that and dozens of other causes.
will the transmission causes my 1999 ford expedition to bog down & sputter when accelerating the 4.6liter engine.
Most common cause would be the plus wires. Dampness causes them to arc and the cylinder that the wire is arcing on won't fire causing a miss/sputter.
coz you shud of gone to specsavers
it may have somthing in gas line or your fuel pump may be going out
Crank sensor has failed,Ignition control module (ICM) has failed,Bad ignition coil pack,
when the engine dies
There could be several reasons why a car would sputter and shut off. The car might be out of gas, dead battery, bad starter, alternator problems or other issues. It is best to have it checked out by a licensed mechanic.
Have the system checked for codes. You will then know possible causes.Have the system checked for codes. You will then know possible causes.

Hmm, I had a similar problem with my Ranger. It had an untraceable electrical problem, and we sold it for scrap. Symptoms include backfiring, severe loss of RPM before backfiring, dying unexpectedly, just about everything it shouldn't do. How bad is the sputter? Does it sputter, or does it sound like a large dying animal?
I have the same problem and was told it is the fuel temperature sensor.
One cause why a Plymouth Voyager sputters is because the driver may be holding the gear shift button, unnecessary for going through drives 1 to 4. The gear shift button is a safety feature that keeps from reversing while driving.
check the egr valve mine does that when under load at 10 to 15 miles when I ease up on the gas I'm going replace it , How do I know I invested in a diagnostic tester cost about 150 dollars
Try to find a fuel pressure gauge. The fuel pump sounds suspicious from your description.
There could be a few causes for a car to spit and sputter on acceleration. One common cause would be the engine not getting enough fuel, so it could be a problem in the fuel line, fuel filter, or fuel pump.
egr valve may be clogged or bent. where do i find the egr valve on my 93 Saturn sc2?
Bad Valves or fuel pump usually from redlining the care
Some possible causes for the engine to sputter: Bad fuel pump not enough pressure Bad fuel injector Bad air filter Bad fuel filter Bad spark plugs or wires
If the check engine light is flashing, it has "stored a code" meaning that you should be able to read a diagnostic code to find out what's wrong, that way neither of us will need to guess.
