Icon5 Acceleration Stutter/Choking

Hi All,

After changing a few things there is still this re-occurring problem: start the engine (any time of day), first shift into drive D4 (automatic), hit the gas lightly and engine starts to stutter then takes off after 5 seconds and never occurrs again until next time u start the engine and do it all over again. Anyone have experience with this? Havent had much luck yet :(
Thx

What did you change exactly?

What you described could be a few things, have you done a tune up lately? could be timing-related...

So its when you start the engine like everytime? Or like when you start it after a cold morning after a mouse started nesting in your header lol. But seriously if it does it even when the car is properly warmed up something is wrong. Mine will studder a bit from all the moisture and stuff that gets in it at night.

not tryin to thread jack ya but im having this same problem with a standard. I start up the car feels strong, put it in first and start goin and it bogs down and jerks a bit till i get to higher RPM then gets goin a lil more. Does it in every gear except 5th (so 1st-4th) Not sure what the problem is might be a vac leak or something else. Hope this helps a little.

You might have answered your own question, quite possibly a vacuum leak. I also experience the same type of symtons in my 97 Base 5 spd. I am convinced its the CAT. I recently installed a header and to do so I dropped the whole exhuast front to back because I knew I would have to cut some bolts off and I was right I had to cut two bolts off the front flange. But I think when I dropped the exhuast, the CAT probably being the stock CAT may have hit the ground a bit too hard and rattled something loose so I am under the impression that the CAT is clogging up, so when I get the time I will remove the CAT completely and hone it out with a broom handle

Of course I better take the Lude to the inspection station fist before I do this just in case. But that might help it breathe a little better and may or may not stop the hasitation (stuttering/ choking)
