my honda civic cuts off when I give it gas, it idles and starts just fine but when i put it in gear and give it gas it cuts off
what is wrong with my 1992 civic it cuts off when I give it gas, it idles and starts just fine but when i put it in gear and give it gas it cuts off
i would look at your throtal body
I will tell the tech. tomorrow he has already replaced the distributor,,,whole thingy and the fuel filter, and the fuel tube nut & adapter and the throttle position censor now i will suggest that...... :}
u check the fuel pump homie
yep my tech changed the distributor , fuel filter, fuel tube nut & adapter and something called a throttle position censor...help ..so far as of today they called the factory to see what else it could be it has been in the shop since last thursday morning...
so what exactly is it doing
well it first stated last monday after i got gas at shell as always...it stopped twice before i could get out of the gas station,,but started and sputter so i floored it for a min. and it drove fine. On tuesday it drove fine, wednesday spit and popped and on thursday after going 65 on the freeway when i got off the exit and tried to excelerate it started losing steam and slowed down by itself until it stopped on the side of the road..so i call a friend and it set there for about 30min and started but was running ruff it went 1 block and cut off...got it to start again and drove it 2 miles and parked it. called a tow because the mechanic thought it might be the motor and did not want to do further damage and it has been with them since thursday... scratching their heads... they say it wil start and idle but if they give it a little gas it just cuts off.
is it carburetated or throttlebody and also look into a pcv valve
well the technician took off the carburator and parts and sent them back and will be trying a fuel pump/filter, and stuff...i am tired and need my car
get a new mechanic! he's running up your bill. i would check to see if theres a vacuum line disconnected or has a hole in it. also you mentioned they replaced the distributor. did they check the spark plug wires or spark plugs? last but not least, did they check the air filter?
great answer..they will have it 1 week 2morrow...still nothing
your mass airflow sensonr may be dirty/blocked, clean the wire in it lightly with a q-tip
thank yall so much...i will call and suggest this also..i have been calling them at least twice a day hope they are listening...if not then it is past time to go and get my car
id be curious to see how much they're going to charge you
yeah sounds like you should check your plugs and wires first. then if that doesn't work then taking your plugs out after runnin your car at high throttle and pull out a plug to see if it is soaked in gas if so you might want to check your fuel pressure regulator cause if your plugs and wires and distributor are all good or new then that means that you're getting enough spark but too much fuel so check your fpr and your maf to see if they are clean and functional
whewwwwww....that thought gives me chills...they are still trying to figure it out...I must go get my car tomorrow I may have to push it away.....
thank you I will suggest that tomorrow before I take it away...
good luck and keep us posted
hi, please update and let us know what happened with your car. i'm having the same problem and would love to know what caused your issue and how your resolved the problem. thanks!
i have a sort of smilar problem... car starts and idles fine, the problem begins when I throw in on 5th gear reaching highways speeds. im going about 60 mph and the gas all suddent cuts off but engine is still running, i let loose of gas and pump it again and i have to drive it for a while like that until problem stops. I have yet to check spark plugs and wires.,. any other suggestions on what the problem might be? - Oscar
i had the same problem where it idles fine but when you give it gas it bogs or even die... what i did was this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdpP4wxBvpA&feature=player_detailpage#t=69s took it for a drive and ran perfect im thinking the fuel line had air in it from running it low on gas.
