I just noticed yesterday that while I was EASY accelerating from a dead stop, the motor was stuttering. As I increased the speed the stuttering disappeared . This only happened twice in a 20mi trip. My suspision is a Fuel filter, but what do I know, I am only guessing.
Other than this problem, the motor runs fine.
what do you think?
How does a bad fuel filter react?
I took the advice given and started to check on vacuum hoses first when I glanced over to the Overfill tank and I found it to be empty
. I have been watching this very closely since I started reading the threads here. In the past I had noticed that it would drop at a miniscule rate over a period of time and I also had read somewhere in a thread here that during the summer months it is not uncommon to lose a little colant.
I checked the tank and it was dry, I took the cap off the rad and I could see colant about 5-6" down from the top. Because I haven't driven the car since I felt that almost unnoticable stumble It looks to me that I caught the failure just in time.
My question to all here is, Could the stumble be the seepage of colant because it was at low speed/rpm ?
Could this be the problem I had? Describe what you felt before your UIM went bye bye.....
