2000 Honda Civic Q&A
2000 Honda Civic Question: Engine Misfires, putters, and loses power when I give it gas from low speeds.
I have an Acura EL year 2000. It recently ran out of gas and was parked for a couple of weeks. I put 6 bucks gas in it to get it to the gas station and then filled it up. On the way back home it stalled as I decreased my speed. In park it would start no problem, but as soon as I would shift it to drive it would stall. I had the fuel filter replaced the next day, and it started on the first try. I drove it around, and from a stop, it has no problem accelerating, but when coming down from a high speed, like on a turn, any acceleration I give it as I come out of the turn causes it to missfire, and putter, and lose power.... ie. almost stall. I don't know what the issue could be. Any help would be much appreciate. ps. The car was running fine without this misfiring problem before it ran out of gas. - haider.ott
I would check your fuel filter again because since you ran out of gas you dont know how much sediment got into the fuel system plus I would have it scan tested for codes - goodguy
Also have the fuel checked for water! Good clean dry gas can used to put the "6 bucks" fuel in it? Water in gas will show up while turning or braking/accelerating more so than steady driving on straight roads. The fuel pump picks up the 'water' as gas/water solution sloshes in tank!!! - pushrod
