View Full Version : Sputtering?

03-28-2005, 02:31 AM
well ive started to notice that my car is sputtering the last few days

it happens mainly under acceleration in the last 1000 rpm range.

im thinking maybe a bad plug or a vaccume leak. any other ideas?

run some seafoam

if that dont help, try a tune up

also u may need a 02 sensor, also the tps could be out of adjustment or just craped out

edit: motion to move to maintainace and repair

My car is carbed.

and wtf is the seafoam?

03-28-2005, 05:30 AM
Yeah, check your plugs/wires/cap/rotor.
Which you should have done before you posted, you lazy bastard :)
Seafoam is this stuff you run through your engine. It's supposed to clean it out. Alot of people swear by it. Dunno how good it is.

You've got a 82, right? With a 22R?

roger that. 82 with 22r motor

and its hard to stop and check that stuff when im at work ;)

was sputtering way bad on the way home this morning..

knowing my luck it prob means my head gasket on the way out again.. if it is that and not something simple.. that car will get bullet holes in it.. and driven straight to the junk yard :rant:

why, it's a good excuse to buy another head [better one]
Give the car some balls. :)

Check your plug wires, make sure your ignition isnt wet. Check your ignition timing again.

Dude sputtering is usually fuel or spark.

well just went out and checked her out.. looked kinda as if my coil wire was loose where it connects to the cap. slamed that bitch in there and will check it on my way to work tonight

Still sputtering. does not do it in 1st gear.. and still does it in the last 1000rpm in 2-5th gear

maybe my fuel filter is pluged.. i never replaced it when i rebuilt the motor... ill go get a new filter and 4 new plugs today

So did you put all new plugs and the new filter in at the same? If you did.. shoulda did it one at a time.. so you could've found out exactly what was causing it.

I rarely do it myself.. I get a bunch of new parts slap it all together and whatever the problem was I fixed it.. but I never know what exactly was causing it.. to impatient lol.

same.. It was last in my day *i got off work at 6am* i did not care and just wanted it fixed. I think it was the filter tho, it was pretty dark inside it and all the plugs looked like they were burning good, they just had aot of build up

They blow for a reason.
Not just randomly. You should figure out why they blew....So you can prevent it from happening again.
