I'm having the same problem and was told it may be the mass air flow sensor, which is found in the air filter housing box.

Sounds like a fuel problem. Check fuel pump and fuel rail. Do a fuel line pressure test. Try cleaning inside of throttle body really good and also the TPS at that location. There's many things that can make a car run bad.

2000 echo shuttering when you accelerate

Sounds like an engine misfire.Does the check engine light come on or flash. If so, it may be a spark plug or ignition coil issue. The transmission can also cause a shudder problem. These transmissions are usually rather dependable though.

What could be causing my car to shudder or shake intermittently when it is in gear?

Have someone check your transmission fluid level. Probably low, so the shifting up and down is compromised.

My engin light is on and feels like i am not getting enof power! i amn not sure what is wrong could it be a fule filter? for 2000 toyota echo

a fuel filter can be a cause of power drainage, but it can also be many other things, start by replacing the fuel filter, and if its not that then work your way to your spark plugs and plug wires so on so on.. making sure you change your oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, ignition rotor, plugs, and plug wires is a great idea to tune up and restore some power back

Hesitates badly and almost stalls when accelerater is depressed. Improves as car warms up.Air filter is new. Spark plugs are new. Mass air sensor is clean. Runs good other than the iniatial hesitation....

Possible, but it is for sure a fuel issue and must be checked starting from a choked fuel line, low fuel pressure at the pump or a bad blocked injector which improve on heat.
You will need to check the details of each to finalise the suspect.

My 1999 Toyota Previa stalls when I am coming to a junction and backing off the the throttle. The revs drop and sometimes they drop so low it stalls, doesn't seem to matter whether the engine is hot or...

My 97 Tarago did the same. Found it was a sensor near the air intake area, quite accessible under the passenger seat. It connects via a bulbuous screw in unit [valve]to the metal work of the engine with a tube to a small filter then connects to an electronic sensor. Unscrew the valve, disconnect from the sensor, and wash out the small hoses filter and valve with some fuel, Dry out reconnect and you will get your acceleration back. If anyone can help with the name of this unit, it would be easier to explain. Good Luck

My echo hesitates on take off and it has a tough time getting up hills,on the highway it seems to wanna go but wont get up to 75-80

Try changing the fuel filter. Check the air filter. Check the timing. Check or change plugs and wires. Make sure there are no loose or broken vacuum lines under the hood. With the engine running, wiggle them all around and listen for a hissing sound.
