View Full Version : Engine Stutter, Loss of power :(

Alright, i've got a 01GAGT. First off my engine seams to cut-out every few seconds when I am driving at a even idle (like when I'm driving slow through a parking lot). It is kind of hard to notice but you can hear it since my exhaust is kinda loud.

Also it seams like I've slowly been losing power and it feels like its really working hard to pull up small inclines.

My dad has replaced the plugs but not the wires. The Fuel filter is stock. But I have had a new muffler put on and the resonator removed.

Any ideas on the stuttering and loss of power? (I've did searches and not really got a good answer)

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Possibilities:
wires
TPS
coil packs
Cat converter
MAF
IAT sensor

if not it's the TPS

i hear a little rattle somtimes when i start it up but it goes away pretty quick, when i keep the gas pressed at an even level and going slow (like 5-10mpg) it feels/sounds like the engine is going fine and then the sound is interrupted for a split second and then it comes back to normal. I dunno
