Default 07 Outlook running issues

2007 Outlook XR 170,000 miles all stock. Last oil change less than 2,000 miles ago. Have put in Lucas injector cleaner and an oil treatment.

It was running fine, drove about 60 miles City driving for 20 then highway up to 80 mph for 30 and then city again for 10. Turned off for 2 hours to go into a doctor appt, it was parked where the front end was on a slight incline. I came back got in and it was a rough start, cranked for about 15 seconds, then 10 sec, then 30 seconds before finally starting. There was a bad vibration through the whole car and very rough idle. Tried to drive it and it would not accelerate even with pedal pressed to floor. After about 5-10 seconds of it revving up it would start to move it was very sluggish but started accelerating it still ran very rough with bad vibration. It would take close to a minute for it to get going faster than 10 mph then it would accelerate better and vibrations calmed down a little. Top speed I got it to was around 30 mph. I’ve had something like this happen before, something to do with the traction control made it run the exact same, it was parked for a couple hours then ran perfect again. So I pulled it into a parking lot to turn it off to maybe reset computers or something. Opened the hood and the whole block was vibrating and smelled like something electrical was burning. The battery ended up dying from trying to crank it so that’s as far as I got

2007 Outlook XE
Default Re: 07 Outlook running issues

I have an 07 that has a similar issue. Replaced the timing chains and oil pump, but the dang car still has reduced power and service stabile messages. I also notice that in park the engine revs fine unless you have your foot on the brake. If the brake pedal is pushed, the engine won't Rev at all. Did you ever figure your issue out?

Charlie214, since post #1 was placed on 2/24/20 and is the only one created by Jvermillion then it's possible this member might have just left the website because - until yesterday's posting by you - there had been no replies to the thread here. I would suggest that you do the following: go to post #1 and hover the cursor over login name until you see some options show up for finding information about the member's activity here. One option present is to send an email to the member. I would use that option and send a message to Jvermillion and ask the member to reply at this thread. Hopefully, a reply will be posted.
338,000 miles - Holy canolli!
Joe Biden for POTUS and Kamala Harris for VEEP. What follows if they get their way? A bad economy, weak military, increased terrorism and a greater RED CHINA.
