What would cause a car to shake and sputter and lose power only under heavy acceleration but not while at idle or low acceleration?

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.

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.

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.

cause your power steering pump has died... try hit it with a hammer :)

Bad torque converter? Bad Power steering pump or low fluid?

it means there is something wrong with the spark plugs cause they provide the energy for the engine

Hard starting, loss of power, check engine light, excess fuel consumption, and a blowing sound under heavy acceleration.

try changing fuel filter first. it could also be the catalytic converter. that can get plugged up and cause your vehicle to lose power.

Discharges from power stations or heavy industrial plants, especially on lakes and rivers. Heavy traffic in a large urban area. Heavy use of air conditioning in a large urban area

Freezing rain and heavy snow cause power failures by building up on overhead power lines, overburdening them. They either snap the line from the weight or come loose from their connectors to the poles and come down.
