Thread: car stalls when put in drive and gas pedal pushed

  1. #1

    Default car stalls when put in drive and gas pedal pushed

    i have a 97 ford contour gl every time you start it it will run fine once you put it in drive and push the gas pedal it stalls. if you let the car slowly accelerate itself with the motor than push gas slowly it wont stall. but you cant even drive it cuz it stalls almost every time. what could be the problem

    Clean the MAF sensor. My car would hesitate whenever I stepped on the gas until I cleaned it.

    Default 97 contour gl

    I cant seem to figure out why my car is stalling when gas pedal is pushed. it only stall when gas is pushed when the car is in drive. In park it will idle and run fine except that it you floor it the gas will slowy rev up instead of fast like usual. i checked the tps with a meter its still good i cleaned the maf its fine cuz that was my origanal problem. i changed a rotted dpfe vaccum line and the fuel filter. i am running out of things to try can someone please help.

    Since you cleaned the MAF have you tried resetting the ECU? Pull the fuses and see if that corrects it.

    sounds like a fuel supply issue. when u floor it, ur injectors switch to full cycle. how old r ur injectors? any Check Engine Light?
