Does it ever stall while accelerating?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
no it bogs down to around 1000rpm then starts to die
Chevy Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 5 months ago

I think problem may be the oxygen sensor. Unplug the front oxygen sensor and see if it stops stalling if so replace the sensor. If that doesn't help unplug the mass airflow sensor to see if it stops stalling if so replace mass airflow sensor. If neither help next step would be to monitor fuel pressure to see if pressure drops during problem which would indicate a failing fuel pump. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

sometimes when it starts to bog you can floor it and it only reaches 3000rps already replaced o2 sensor mass air flow sensor cam positioning sensors and actuators have not checked fuel pressure yet was is normal pressure

Do you ever get any other codes? Does it always bog under hard acceleration?

you can slowly leave stop sign and it will start right away then you can shut it off and start it on the move and it will be fine for a while
