Ok I have a 3.0 v6 engine in my accord , when I accelerate gradually it works fine but if I floor it the engine sputters like a rev limiter kind of feel and if I keep my foot on the gas it then looses power unless I let off the gas pedal, now this only occurs when I accelerate aggressively (floor it) can anyone say what this might be, what to check
So much could be the problem with those symptoms... Btw I do not have this engine or this vehicle but I have been reading up on some of the problems as I was thinking of putting engine into a civic... Start simple I guess
Disconnect battery for about 5 mins to reset ecu I believe these engines have exhaust gas recirculation and in combination with the pcv the intake manifold tends to clog with excess carbon deposits... Clean intake and egr valve... And please don't power foam or sea foam the engine while it is running to clean it out. I am suggesting removal of manifold to clean but only if you have an egr. Might be able to get a look inside by opening the throttle body all the way. Could be a clogged fuel filter, a vacuum leak... So much can be the reason why... Hope you get through
Ok I checked plugs, air filter,no vacuum leaks no oil leaks plus I cleaned the egr, intake manifold andn trottle body however when I accelerate aggressively i am still getting that stutter like a rev limiter kinda thing
K&N filter or OEM type replacement...I want to suspect ignition bit I am not sure... Not sure if your particular vehicle has a maf sensor or a map sensor. Maf sensors are affected more by contaminants than a map sensor
Do a basic tune up, I had an issue with sputtering tried all kinds of stuff, end up changing fuel filter and cleaned the injectors, seems to have worked. But the issue can be related to other stuff not mentioned eg. Fuel pressure when at WOT etc
With our trip to Colorado this year would like to take some pictures and movies on the way. Other that the same old Gopros that are out there what kind of cameras have you all found to use for these kind of trips?
