I was having the same problem with my daughter's escort. I replaced the cam position sensor and the problem stopped. Advanced Auto Parts will check the computer to find out the problem for free.

Change the plugs and wires. also check the throttle position sensor or have it tested


It could be your MAF sensor. Mass air flow sensor that measures the air going into the intake. This could likely cause sluggish acceleration.


bad fuel, shorted mass air sensor, if the car is automatic might be low transmission oil


the crank position sensor can cause similar symptoms jeep is known for crank sensor problems


When the TPS sensor is disconnected from the car in idle, there would be delayed acceleration.


The vehicle speed sensor is located in the transaxle. If the technician forgot to pop the sensor far enough back into the hole, the tranny fluid could potentially leak out. I know, because this happened to me when I replaced my Speed sensor.


That happened to my 1996 F-150. Ended up being my oxygen sensor. It would crank, but not start.



About a million things. Bad gas, plug wires, plugs, throttle position sensor, timing off, idle air control valve, clogged injectors, or maybe even the coil pack. The easiest to change and probably one of the best bets in the plugs and wires.


It would if the battery voltage was lowered enough to cause it not to fire.


This will be caused by either worn wheel bearings or worn outer cv joints on the driveshaft which will eventually give out if not dealt with immediately


No, a bad crankshaft sensor would cause the car not to start and run.


Hi, If the problem is the O2 sensor, I was told that there are two, and if so do you replace both. Thanks, Gary


Lots of things, most of them engine problems ( assuming you your parking brake is not set on and your tires all have air.) The cheapest to fix would be badly adjusted or worn carbuerator and/or spark plugs and spark plug wires - this is what the typical engine tune-up would fix. More serious engine probles such as bad piston rings or warped valves would cause slow acceleration and would require an over-haul.


In this case, acceleration is positive. Negative acceleration would cause the object to slow down (decelerate.)


One sensor would be for your engine temperature gauge and the other sensor for the OBD II engine management system


A malfunction in the range sensor could cause the cruise to be inoperative.A malfunction in the range sensor could cause the cruise to be inoperative.


A faulty crank sensor would cause no spark and no fuel.



There are several things that can cause your 1989 Honda Accord to stall on acceleration. The most common cause is a plugged or dirty air filter.


Several possibilities: Engine issues -Clogged fuel filter, Crank position sensor or cam position sensor going out intermittently (should throw a code), ignition coil breaking down(unlikely - would usually cause stumbling all the time), bad gas or water in the gas(unlikely),oxygen sensor (would cause one or two jerks during a typical acceleration, should throw a code). If it's the transmission, it may be "slipping" or have a clogged filter or valve body causing hard shifts.



Perhaps an out of balance wheel. If this is the cause it will be worse at a certain speed.


Newton taught everybody that Net Force = Mass * Acceleration. Since we're talking about acceleration, we can rearrange that to be Acceleration = Net Force / Mass. If you want to decrease the acceleration of an object, you would need to decrease the net force applied to it or increase its mass (or both).


Yes, a bad O2 sensor would cause a 2002 Dodge Dakota to stall. It would also cause bad fuel mileage and hard idling within the vehicle.
