2000 Trooper Acceleration Problem
Recently I had a problem where my trooper would stall on start up. Engine would fluctuate between 0-1500 rpms. After start up, the engine would either die or come close to it. Reving the engine rarely helped. Didn't matter if i was starting the engine cold or hot. This would go on 4-5 times until the engine finally just worked normally. I brought my trooper in numerous times for this issue which the dealership said they had 'fixed' each and every time i brought it in. Well finally it seemed like they did fix it, what they did im completely un aware of. Now that i've gotten it back, its giving me a new problem.
Engine has started up fine ever since my old problem. However, when im driving around, i will randomly loose pressure in my acceleration pedal. When the problem happens, no matter how hard i push on the pedal it doesnt do anything, no response at all. Doesnt matter how fast or slow im going. The engine just completely looses power for 1-2 seconds then it just regains power and i can accelerate again. I know the car/engine are still running becuase 1. i can hear it and 2. i still have power steering, so i know the car doesnt shut off during these 1-2 seconds.
Both these problems occured and progressivly became worse after an even bigger issue when one of my lifters broke off and I had to get my engine completely replaced.
Its quite hard for me to explain since again i know nothing about cars, but I figured i'd give this a try before I bring it into the dealership for weeks on end.
