Q: Vehicle dies when I give it gas.

asked by on

My vehicle cuts off when I press the gas pedal.

A: The vehicle may have more than one problem ...

The vehicle may have more than one problem causing this problem. These problems were from things like the coolant sensor giving false readings, engine control modules failing, throttle position sensors failing and the mass air flow sensors failing. All of these could cause your problem along with a list of other problems like stalling, hesitation, no start, bucking, or loss of power to name just a few. I recommend to have a qualified mechanic check it out such as one from YourMechanic. They may be able to isolate your problem down to one of these components.
