... 1993 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

My 1986 Nissan 300zx non-turbo was running fine, then just stalled out suddenly and would not restart. I checked the plugs, wiring, fuel, all are OK. I installed a new coil, distributor cap and rotor. If I unplug the connector wire to injector #2, engine will start but idles on only 2 or 3 cylinders (very weak ignition in cylinders 2, 4 and 6). When car is idling, if I reconnect injector #2 again, engine will stall out and will not restart - unless I spray carb & choke cleaner into the air


It sounds like the number 2 injector is hung open.\015\012\015\012It will dump fuel and cause all sorts off issues with the ECU.\015\012\015\012You should ohm that injector and compare it with the others to see if it is wildly ... 1986 Nissan 300ZX

The idle speed control valve on my 96 Jag VDP was sticking in the open position causing a high idle in the 2,000 RPM range. I had to disconnect it, remove it and manually pull out the plunger to reseat it. I bought a new one, installed it on a warm engine and it worked perfectly the first time. The next day and thereafter it started again with the high idle. I can drive the car the way it is but it will stall when cold if I do not keep the revs up. I checked for vacuum leaks, cleaned the throttl

1987 mercury cougar 5.0. When the engine is started cold, it stalls after 30 seconds. To keep it running, you have to rev the engine until it is warmed up. While reving the engine, it feels like it misses and it backfires a bit. Once the engine is fully warmed up, it idles and drives fine. The air charge temp sensor, engine coolant temp sensor, MAP sensor, and idle speed control motor have all been replaced within the last 2 weeks and I still have this problem. Could the problem be the EGR valve

I got a 2000 Dodge Durango 4.7L and 140 K miles. Couple of days ago the engine knocked and the engine light came on, the computer said it was probably caused by the timing chain streched of jumped.Another symptom is that the engine sounds and seems to run good, but while sitting idle, it won't start knocking or stalling until it warms up (average idle speed 600-700 RPMs, normal?) But I also heard the transmission having problems shifting down can cause the engine to stall and die while slowing d

2004 isuzu rodeo 3.5l. Once engine is warmed up it will die out at idle. It will start fine after it dies out but will continue to die out. Runs with higher RPM as long as it is not idling. We replaced the engine a few months ago with a used engine. The old engine crapped out cause of loss of oil. Ran fine with used engine installed for a few months. I cleaned the throttle valve but problem still exists. Whatcha think? Also, Have a 1988 honda accord 119cid. It runs rough at idle. Sometimes dies

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango. At 27,000 miles, it started stalling in traffic and the dealer replaced several sensors. The cam sensor was the last one to be replaced. Now at 72,000 miles, it has began to stall again. The engine idles up very high when I first warm it up, it idles down, but it has a knocking sound now. The engine light comes on periodically and when it does, it causes the car to cut off, but it cranks right back up. Help!


If there is a knocking sound the computer will start retarding the timing to get rid of engine knock thru the knock sensor. Make sure you are using the correct grade of fuel. it will be listed in your owners manual. the improper grade of fuel can cau ... 2006 Dodge Durango

2000 Maxima GLE engine has trouble maintaining idle in cold temperatures 40 F and below and has been close to stalling. If engine is not warmed up, when shifting into drive, I sporadically feel little power until engine has warmed up. Also can hear a hissing sound from under the hood as I accelerate. Noticed this problem at the end of winter '08 but went away once weather warmed up. I was told this could be an O2 sensor but I'm looking at all possibilities. Thank you Ken S.

High idle air intake gasket I have a 95 chevy blazer with a 4.3 litre engine. It has a high idle. It runs at 1200 when starting in the morning and around 1700 when engine is warm. Today i totally blocked the air intake and it didn't stall the engine, which i think it should do. Then i used a propane torch and open it without lighting it, i held it were the air intake cover meets the engine, and then the engine speed went up. Does this mean i've a leak in the gasket and need to replace it? Thanks

First engine was idling rough, a friend said it was the carb and sprayed with cleaner, it ran a little better but would hesitate if accelerated too fast. He then said it was the little plastic thing connected to the carb, it was removed with the carb open and was spring loaded (he had the carb open to spray alot of carb cleaner). I can get it to start but the engine dies after giving it gas, I don't think the little plastic thing was installed properly and i don't even know what it does or what


Sure you have a carburetor? Likely you have injection and the item you are looking at is the throttle position sensor (I'm guessing on that because you are a bit vague there) That is non adjustable and should slide right onto the throttle shaft. Only ... 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Idle loops after highway driving, the engine idles "loopy?". when I come to a stop after highway driving the engine almost cuts out over and over, but does not stall. I only experience this problem after highway driving, not when I start the engine and let it warm up, and not when I am driving regular surface streets. It might be because the engine gets hotter after driving 70mph for a few miles.

I have a 2002 Cadillac deVille with 120k miles. When the engine is warm, it bucks and surges during idle. It runs fine asl long as we are moving. But, when I stop at a light the engine will buck and stall. This only happens when the engine is warm. It runs beautifully from cold start until the temperature gauge/graph is up about 1/3 of the way. It never overheats. the gauge/graph never goes above the halfway point.

Engine trouble Car has sat for quite awhile and is now hard to start, even in warm weather. It does not idle properly, continually stalls out until engine has warmed up. When the gas pedal is depressed,the engine seems like it is starving for gas or air. Also, the oil pressure gauge goes off the scale upon startup. I have replaced the spark plugs, fuel filter, oil, and removed the injectors which I soaked in diesel and then replaced. None of these things made any difference! PLEASE HELP
