Default Dead spot

2006 PT base 5-speed with 60,000 miles has a dead spot sometimes on acceleration??? Car runs fine, no codes, no miss just falls flat sometimes when accelerating.
Seems like out of fuel then kicks in and may not do this again for days or miles!
Been doing this for over a year and just lived with it.... ANY IDEAS?????

Cool Re: Dead spot

What codes are you throwing?
(see your owner's amnual for the "key dance" for codes)

I would suggest looking at your TPS (throttle position sensor) and make sure its not loose. Check the wires and connectors going to the TPS also.

When was last time plugs and wires were replaced?
Could well be time.
