I have had this issue as well, it's like a stutter in the engine when your accelerating in the lower gears (for me) but it comes and goes, sometimes it happens and other times it doesn't, and there is no real situation in which it ALWAYS happens for me, it seems to be totally random. I would say I get it only once or twice a week, and that's it, so if you find anything out, please let me know as well so I can get mine taken care of before it becomes a major issue as well.

Common problems for choking are Ignition or weak fuel pump. Most common is ignition.

I had the same problem. I did a few things to fix it. I changed my spark plug wires to aftermarket ones, changed my spark plugs, changed my EGR valve, threw cleaner through my intake manifold and also just put a new fule filter for the fun of it. I think it was my wires and plugs that were causing the problem for me and my egr valve was sticking and the specs werent right.

Engine choking/stuttering on light acceleration

Hi Rory,

Thanks for your input.
It usually seems to happen putting the auto transmission into drive for the first time after starting the vehicle, then doesnt happen again. It seems to be getting worse, longer duration and more stuttering.

Just did a tune up recently, spark plugs & wires, rotor, cap, fuel filter, motor oil, tranny fluid. Seems to be getting enough fuel during regular operation but im sure it can be performing better.

Any input on O2 sensors and when they should be changed - vehicle is a '97 and has 160 000 kms.

thanks.

Hi,

Also, can you explain what ignition symptoms may causing this type of problem?

Any comment on gasoline types - regular vs. premium...i am starting to think the quality of gasoline varies depending on where you purchase it.

Can this choking/stuttering problem be related to the ATTS?

:)

h22 engines are designed for 93 octane. 91 MINIMUM, but absolutely nothing lower.

Most common issues, dirty air filters, bad spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, CHECK TIMING!!!!

Pull your spark plugs and check what color the tips are in.

Use 91 octane or better

Hey all,

It seems the mystery is solved...make sure you use at least 91 octane for fuel and that the vendor you fill up at has clean gasoline. As mentioned earlier in this thread the H22 is super-sensitive to the octane content in gasoline so u gotta use 91 octane or better.

Thanks all for your input.

There is a laundry list of things that might be causing that problem, I am experiencing some of what you are describing, but again I'd have to drive your car to see whether or not it is the same type of hasitation in acceleration. As mine I am almost convinced it is the CAT that is causing mine. Will know more later this week as I am removing it and see if I can get stuff to just fall out if it, (maybe with a little help with a broom handle)
I'll let you know if it clears up the hasitation. I always use 91 or higher octane actually I use 93 all the time. Plus I have recently done tune up and replaced all filters. One thing that hasv't been done yet is replace or clean the EGR valve.
