Spitting and sputtering sounds like a fuel problem. Have you checked the fuel flow from the fuel petcock. It's vacuum operated and sometimes the diaphragm gets a hole in it. When this happens, it doesn't open properly. When acceleratign, the manifold vacuum is low anyway dut the carburetor being wide open. Pull the fuel hose off and spin the engine with the starter while watching the fuel flow. If it's not a good flow, you may want to replace the petcock.

Good Luck

My honda cg 125 is stuttering as i hit bout 30 mph though iv checked the oil and that seems ok?


Drain the carb folat bowl. Chances are condensation has made it into the bowl causing the sputter. A new spark plug never hurts. The same for a clean air filter.

Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate


Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).

91 jeep randomly wont start; also spits/sputters on acceleration


First (I"M starting to sound like a broken record on this) check the ground connections at both ends of the cable.(smaller body grounds as well) Make sure they are clean where they make contact with block and terminal post (not just on the outside.) Make sure hot wire is also clean and fastened correctly. Right now, we are trying to find out what it's not., Then, you can get to what it is.Often small stupid things can look like other larger problems.
