Customer Question
2002 protege randomly once...

2002 protege randomly once or twice a week bogs down almost stalls ,trying to accelerate from a dead stop------replaced fuel pump, filter, drained tank ,put in new gas???????

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

No light on, rough idle when in gear, not in neutral, only acts up occaisionally from a dead stop

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

Just had new cylinder head,timing belt,tensioners ect,, changed fuel pump,filter

I am very sorry your having this issue with your vehicle.

I will try my best to answer all of your questions.

However, before we get started, please let me mention a few things.

1. If at any point you would like to speak on the phone, please feel free to request a phone call on your end and I can call you right away.

2. If you dont understand any technical terms or anything that I mention (component tests or theory or operation), please let me know and I will provide you with a more in debt explanation or answer.

3. Please understand that I am here to help you any way I can.

This condition is most likely caused by a faulty mass air flow sensor located in the air intake snorkle. Just be sure the air intake assembly or tube is not cranked or ripped in anyway.
