Check your fuel filter before spending money on other troubleshooting procedures.
Had the same problem, it would idle fine but about 4000 rpm or heavy exceleration it would start to jerk. so i replaced my cam sensor.
Fuel constriction, ignition parts corroded, wet spark plugs. I had this problem caused by a corroded connection on the high-voltage side of the ignition coil. Carburetors could have a failing acceleration pump.
A malfunctioning battery can't provide enough power to your ignition system when the motor is idling can cause sputtering. If there is not enough gas, that can cause your vehicle to sputter. If the spark plugs fail to fire will also cause your vehicle to sputter.
NO... You have other problems. Sounds like WATER is in the fuel.
Low power steering fluid or defective power steering pump.
bad torque converter .
the coipack...you know the thing the sparkplugs come out of....loss of power at random times...no acceleration but at other times the car runs fine new coilpack'll set you back $120 new but i got mine at a junkyard for 20 buck....not a problems since
There are numerous issues that can cause a lack of power during acceleration. Common causes include a clogged fuel filter, a clogged air filter, and dirty fuel injectors.
You may have a faulty coil. Check mass air flow sensor
By itself, the thermostat would have to be stuck closed causing a severe overheat condition to cause a loss of power.
Lots of things. From misfiring spark plugs to incorrect timing to deposit build up.
Start at the fuel filter. It may be clogged.
cause your power steering pump has died... try hit it with a hammer :)
it means there is something wrong with the spark plugs cause they provide the energy for the engine
