Acceleration, Stalling and Idle RPMs
So a few weeks ago I had drivin to Joplin (100 miles away) and had the car going non stop running around for 10 hours in bad heat. Then on the way back on the hwy I was going around 70 and the car started jutting the eventuality lost acceleration and then stalled (3 miles from my house of course). Fast forward to today and at a stop I go to press on the gas to take off I couldn’t get the car to accelerate at all for 4-5 seconds then it all the sudden accelerated. When I got home and pulled into the driveway and put it in park the rpm kept going to up and down between 500 to 1000 rpm. Up, a second later down and second later up and so forth. Any ideas out there??
So since this post I’ve had the issue pop up maybe 4-5 times. The check engine stayed on for awhile but now is off most of the time. Yesterday I got new tires due to another issue I’ve been dealing with and ask a tech how much change the spark plugs. He took the plastic cover off the manifold and I noticed at the right of it was a small hose coming from that plastic piece I believe you mentioned ( in the picture). The hose looks kind of melted, cracked and is very loose. I can’t seem to find a diagram to tell me what it’s called so I can price/replace it.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Hey Michael. First of all, that's a pretty good recounting of the problems you experienced with your vehicle. Would you tell us a little more about the actual vehicle? Year, model, engine, Automatic or manual transmission, etc., as these specifics help get you more specific and helpful feedback.
Also, anything looked into or tried between the time the car stalled 3 miles from home and the point you"fast forwarded" to?

It’s a 2006 KIA Sportage Front wheel drive 2.7ltr 6cyl engine. Tried starting it several times after it stalled and it would turn over but wouldn’t start. Had it towed and sure enough the next day the mechanic called and said it started and drove, couldn’t find an issue. When it stalled it started with a slight stutter you could feel, few seconds later stronger, then stronger. Until the acceleration quickly went to nothing and then stalled out finally. I’ve heard fuel pump, ignition coils, timing belt and spark plugs. With most saying fuel pump. With these recent symptoms today didn’t know if that would help narrow it down.

Also it’s an automatic and The mechanic did say the check engine light code said something about a transmission solenoid going out and to get it flushed? He has a real thick accent that’s hard to understand sometimes.

Michael did you find out what the problem was
