If it is getting too much fuel you should be able to pull a vac hose such as the one to the PCV valve and make the engine speed up.If it is too rich could be a fuel pressure regulator or injector problem.Pull the pump relay and see if it star ... Ford Bronco

I recently got a code 32 on my 95 chev suburban 4x4 and changed the egr solenoid (egr valve passed all vacuum tests). Didnt seem to change the way it ran, but then I got a code 54. Truck starts and idles perfectly, but when driving starts (usually around 20 mph) it starts missing. Runs fine when i am deep in the accelerator. Seems gas mileage has really gotten bad. I recently put bosch platinum spark plugs (did not gap them, straight out of box) and accel 9000 high performance wires on truck. Ra


HI. Ok, If the plugs were not gapped, properly. This will be the cause of the horrible gas mileage and occasional missing at low speeds, if originating after the installation of the plugs.This will trip this 32 code, due to poor combusti ... 1995 Chevrolet Suburban

I am still getting the code reading P0171 which in my book says system too lean (bank 1) what does that mean? I have already clean out the mass airlfow and tried the electrical cleaning spray for the sensors. Its funny I am getting the same freakin code on my 1999 GMC Sonoma which wont pass smog test.


171 usually means you have a vacum leak, or vacum hose disconnected, but usually the mass air flow sensor needs to be replaced. ... 2002 Toyota Tacoma

My 2000 (V plate) Ford cougar 2.0L zetec failed its mot today on Exhaust emissions. My readings are as follows Fast idle test co = 0.21% = pass (max 0.30%) hc = 36 ppm = pass (max 200) Natural idle test co = 0.54% = Fail (max 0.50%) the car had a new cat fitted around 6months ago along with new ht leads.

2002 chrysler voyager check engine light came on took van to dealership they told us it was the hoses. We bought brand new hoses all three and changed them. The light wont go off it still says that the hoses are bad. Had a smoke test done and no leaks. I was told that this is a problem with these vans and the codes for the hoses. How do we get the codes to reset and not come back up with the same error? We need to smog vehicle and it wont pass if light is on. The van passes all tests except the


On these vans the light will stay on untill it is reset. You need a OBD 2 scanner to reset it. You can take it to the dealer and have them do it but they will probably charge you like $130. The best thing for you to do is check with an auto parts sto ... 2002 Chrysler Voyager

1989 f150 302 V8 fuel injected emissions problem. Installed new engine from Ford, blew SKY HIGH on low and high idle emissions. Emission numbers were 10-20x max legal limit (over 3000). Replaced the catalytic converter and EGR valve and cleaned the idle air valve and took back to emissions. Truck passed the HIGH IDLE test very well, but still failed the low idle test. The low idle numbers were cut exactly in half, but were still 5-10x the max allowable. QUESTION IS, what can cause JUST THE LOW I

SMOG issue. 1991 Chevrolet K5 Blazer, 142,000, failed smog, Prior to the test it had 1/4 tank of premium fule and a half a bottle of pass smog test. The truck overheated at the smog test prior to the actual test. I had accidently severed the hot wire to the dual electric fans that cool the motor and idn't realize it. So after about 90 minutes the vehicle had cooled, the engine temp at about 210, the test began, Hydro carbons at low idle were 209, high idle or 25 mph were 509. teh 509 they said


I doubt is premium or any additive was a good idea.The engine is not likely high compression.It would help to know thingsl like what the spark plug were like.If any were discolored, that would be a sign of a bad plug, plug wir ... 1991 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

On my car, emmisions. Everything is OK, apart from CO is way high. It passes tests for MOT ok for all (jusy about on CO) at idle test, but fast idle all is OK except CO is way high. The Cat is apparently working correctly according to the CAT stability test, its had new thermostat, air filter, MAF fuel pressure regulator but still CO is high. Is there anything that could be causing the co to be high?
