Customer Question
2004 gt crusier, if...

2004 gt crusier, if I hit the gas pedal quick it will bog down and the engine light will come on and you have to let off the gas a little and it will be ok until you give it more gas, but if you give a little at a time it will only go about 65mph,

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GT yourself? What have you tried so far?

If it is something simple, if not a mechanic.. when it bogs down and I am moving I can turn the car on and off and it will be ok for about 10 min.

i have no codes, right now..
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 8 months ago

Alright, Is this the original catalytic converter on the vehicle to your knowledge? It sounds like the exhaust may be restricted to me by the symptoms your giving me.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
it has not been changed. when you first start driving the first 3 min. i can step on the gas and it will do 80+ the turbo kicks and runs great. after its warm at any speed you step on the gas hard it just bog and spit and sputter until you let the gas off
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 8 months ago

Alright, I follow you, is the fuel pump original as well?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i was thinking the same thing or maybe the filter like the 70's cars
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
but then again i thought it could be the PCM
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
when i am driving and it bogs, i turn the car off an on like i am rebooting the PCM , but that only works for a few times until it cools down
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 8 months ago

I doubt it's a PCM, or definitely would be throwing codes in my opinion. It sounds fuel pressure related to me, look on the end of the fuel rail, tell me if you see a schrader valve at the end of the rail where the injectors are. I would like to check fuel pressure cold , then when it acts up check the pressure again and see if it's the same, if it's the same pressure, we know fuel pressure isn't the problem.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 8 months ago

The fuel pressure spec is around 58 plus or minus 5 psi.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i am sure it does have codes, i don't have anything to check them right now
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i will try to get codes over the next few days, i live in South Fl and we a expecting a very unwanted guest- Irma the hurricane.
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 8 months ago

In about mid 04 Chrsyler was nice enough to delete the schrader valve from the fuel rail, I'm sure that saved them .25 cents a car, but see if yours does have one, if not , it takes a special tool to check the fuel pressure with that's about 100$ . So if it doesn't have a schrader valve, checking the pressure would have to be done by someone with this tool the tool number is ***** fyi, but hopefully you have a schrader valve to check fuel pressure, So in summary, if the pressure is within spec and around 58 psi, it's not fuel pressure related, and I would say perform an exhaust system back pressure test next, or pull the front o2 sensor out and see if it ran any better temporarily as pulling the o2 sensor gives that exhaust somewhere to go instead of building up backpressure if the cat is clogged. If fuel pressure is lacking and falling below 53 psi, I would say replace the fuel pump.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
