Bogging Down While Accelerating


hey guys, im having a problem with my 94 gt. when i accelerate it starts missing or bogging down real bad. my a/f ratio gauge starts spazzin out and im losing power. once i get up to speed, it runs fine, until i go to accelerate again. i did notice that my left o2 sensor is chaffing against my transmission cover shield and wandering if it chaffed through the wiring, but this all started happening after a heavy downpour and while driving home, i went through some pretty deep water. any ideas?

Sounds like a coil or distributor issue...

if you dont have the stock hood, water could be getting to the coil or distributor somehow bu tthat wouldn't explain why its only under acceleration. Its possible that it is the o2 sensor. I would check the TPS and MAF also.

mine had the same problem. i changed the distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter, and i got an oil change and it is back to normal. the oil change is what brought the power back and the bogging stopped after that. hope that helps with you but it sounds like a different problem.

it could even be as simple as a spark plug starting to file out or an injector going bad

Make sure that all of your ignition wires are tight and like suggested above make sure that all of your spark plugs are snug...
