please help me w/ my car
    #2423553 - 03/12/04 01:01 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Maybe someone could shed some light on a problem i am having with my car?

I have a '91 Toyota Tercel........

Just bought it a few weeks ago.....and its been stalling....not conventional stalling out though....it only stalls when im accelerating and hitting a bump or pothole in the road(at the same time)....it doesnt stall under any other acceleration circumstances.......just when im going over a bump and giving it some gas.....

I know it hasnt had a tuneup in years.....so im going to be doing a complete tune up soon......but has anyone ever heard anything like that before??

Its so fucking odd.......does this in all the same spots on the road everyday.....going over train tracks, the start and end of overpass bridges, and the same potholes.........

And it isnt stalling out completely...only for the split second that the car is jarred around from going over the bump.......more like a sputter than a stall i suppose.......

:confused:

Peace,
Adam

Checking electrical connections is a good place to start. Need more info though. Carborated or injected? If it is carborated it could be a case of the float level being wrong causeing either flooding or starving in that situation.
