      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires

    The RPM indicator revs high and low on its own when the car is in drive or when the car is idling. What can the problem?
    Sometimes even while I'm driving I feel the car rev up and down by it self. I've changed the purge solenoid and egr valve over the past few years and even the throttle body. But the problem continues.

    Why is there such a price difference between fuel pumps online ($40 to $300)?
    And if I don't have a hoist, and I am handy, can I replace the fuel pump myself? How long would it take a shop to do this? Thanks!

      The price difference depends on many factors; parts source, parts supply, parts inventory, and parts demand.

      In addition to these variables, the fuel pump assembly itself will vary by the number of components; you can purchase just the pump itself (for very little cost) or purchase the entire assembly; consisting of the following components = pump and level sender assembly; includes fuel pump, sending unit, float and fuel strainer - for much greater cost accordingly. This is the condition you have discovered.

      For fuel system components always purchase the OEM-equivalent in aftermarket parts to be assured of the best fit and application for your vehicle.

      Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the generic steps to replace the fuel pump.

    Why when I drive my car it starts running hot, but if in park and just idling it does not.
    My car starting running hot while driving it, I have found if I stop and let it idle the temp will go down but only while I am not moving. Would the water pump be going bad. I have checked all the hoses and and even ran a OBD code reader on it but it is not stating ...
