Can anyone help guide me how to repair my ca? It has trouble accelerating once gas is under 3/4 tank.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car won't accelerate normally. I push on
the gas peddle and the car will go but the
acceleration won't pick up. If I go peddle to
the metal the car will stall out. However,
this only happens once gas is under 3/4

throttle position sensor


or plugged catalytic converter


99 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 the truck was hot wired by previous owner and the steering wheel column has been replaced. It was running and cranking now it will turn over but won't start. Any ideas as to what this is?


95 GMC might need a fuel pump


99 Chevy you need to check for fuel pressure and spark, both can be an issue, if you have fuel pressure and spark, check for codes .

Thanks will try that tomorrow. I seen one guy say his truck is supposed to have 55 in the pressure gauge is that true?


Btw my daughter has a 95 gmc sierra and change spark plug wires and spark plugs plus distributor cap and she purrs like a kitten. Hers was acting the same backfiring in start up. Awesome truck also


I do believe 55is spec.
