I have to step on the gas to start my fuel injected engine, then when I get it running, put it in gear, it dies. As the engine heats up it gets worse. Much worse and I have a lot of trouble keeping it running. If I slow down, it misses and backfires and after a few minutes of pumping the gas and letting off it will finally gain power again. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, plugs, dist.cap, and throttle control valve to no avail.


Look for the pcv valve in the valve cover pull it out and take it off the vac line and see if its dirty should be able to shake it and you should hear a rattle or clicking when you shake it also check the line to be sure its not dry rot and broken, s ... 1989 Dodge D150

Engine Trouble Just got my truck back for my mechanic, with re manufactured engine from Jasper. It has run good for a week, then all of a sudden it started running rough, like water in fuel. While in park or neutral it idles fine and revs great, but when I put it in gear the problems begin. I just put ''HEAT'' to dry any water out in the gas and also changed the fuel filter. After doing that now the motor doesn't want to spin over and the battery is good

1996 F-150 4.9L runs fine when cold, then after it heats up runs rough with low power and eventually stalls. It has been doing this for some time, at first it would run for a longer time before acting up but the time it would run before acting up is decreasing. "check engine " light has been on but when I tried to use OBDII scanner but it would not work. Finally found that the wire to the socket was shorted out, now fixed. BODII showed -crankshaft position sensor malfunction and lean mixture


I would look at the ignition module and coil. Either one of those are notorius for malfunctioning after warming up. ... Ford F-150

Gear slipping This problem occurs more in the cold than heat. It happens only until the car has been driving(not running) for 15 minutes or more. It used to only happen one time, but it is happening more each time. Here is the problem: I will warm the car, then when I go to leave, I will put the car in gear and as soon as it takes off, it slips out of gear. It will not go back into gear unless you rev the engine to about 3000 rpm's. The transmission does not make any noice and there is not any o

I have a 42re trans (4x2). My previous trans would always pull out in 2nd gear shifting regular thru the rest. Rarely did it pull out in 1st gear. Eventually the trans went while on the highway. Vehicle trans shifted all over the place. I replaced my trans (keeping the old wiring) and found that it would not shift out of 1st gear. The kicker is that there is NO engine light on...... NOR did it produce any codes from my OBD2 scanner. I proceeded to unplug the speed sensor wire, run the engi

As soon as the engine heats up I cannot get into 1st gear at all and struggle to get into other gears as well but in the morning when the motor is hasnt run for the day yet its fine. I thought it had something to do with the clutch so I fitted a brand new LUK clutch kit but it did not solve my problem

1992 Honda Accord EX engine bogs down - problem is doesn't do it all the time. When it does it, it seems like it won't go into gear but it is not the transmission. If I am going 60 to 65 mph on the highway, it bogs down to 50 mph, the tach bounces up to 3 and the transmission downshifts to a lower gear. If I press the accelerator, it eventually kicks in. It has never stopped running though

1990 Plymouth Voyager Minivan 2.5L 3 speed auto trany. Starts fine and runs fine when cold. But after about a half hour of driving and the engine heats up the trouble starts. The engine acts like it is cutting out but not all the way where it stalls. It bucks and chugs. Like only a few cyclinders are firing. I stop and stand on the brake and give it gas while in gear and it stumbles. I put it in park and give it gas and it revs just fine not missing a beat. I thought maybe it was getting too hot


I think your on the right track but I would start with the CPS (crank position sensor) as it seems most obvious as it normally starts to fail/read inaccuratly when the car gets hot. Should be less then $40 and a much easier replacement then a radiato ... 1990 Plymouth Voyager

I have a 1990 Chevorlet 1500 pickup 4X4 with a 5.7L and over 292,000 miles. The engine is running ruff at idle and under power and when climbing a small incline the engine pops through the throttle body. I changed the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor button and distributor. Also I sprayed the throttle body with CRC cleaner in case it might be a clogged injector. After all of that the engine stills runs ruff. After putiing in the new distributor and it still running ruff, i noticed t
