I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy. It cranks all the lights come on and it started up fine but if it sits too long I need starting fluid. The gas pressure is right and the fuel gets to the engine, but will not start anymore even with starting fluid. Also when it does start I have to steady the gas pedal until the accelerator actually runs like normal but tapping the pedal with my foot cause the car to idle funny and rpms jump up then it runs normal. Any help ?

I have a Mazda 2002 Protege and my problem is that when I start the car and it's idling it will start to **** and then the check engine light comes on. If I have to start moving (if I have to go to work and can't wait) then the acceleration is affected, I can only accelerate very slowly even if I am pressing on the gas and then suddenly the engine will surge and I will start to accelarate very quickly and then it seems to go back to normal. I just had my spark plugs changed. I've looked onlin

1989 Camry V-6 1. Starts up and drives just fine... However, after 20 minutes or so, and particularly when on the highway, the Check Engine light will come on.

I have an Audi 80 1.8 petrol 1989. The car starts from cold with no trouble settling to a normal idle speed. However as you drive for a mile or so and come to slow down the engine dies to a extremely rough and lumpy running - barely above a stall. Pressing the accelorator produces no revs and the engine ''hunts'' firing only on a one or two cylinders. Eventually the car will start again and as long as the revs are kept high it will drive again, although when the revs go lower the engine dies aga

I have a 2005 (MKIV) Jetta 1.8T Automatic, and stalled suddenly while waiting for a traffic light to change. I turned the ignition on and off a couple times to get it running again, and after getting it re-started, the EPC indicator light came on. I arrived to my destination and when I started the car EPC indicator light was off and everything was normal. This has happened like three times before, and always at idle or coming to a stop.

1992 Oldsmobile cutlass ciera s 3.3 liter V6. While driving or idle in park, the idle kicks up high and the check engine light comes on. This symptom is not constant. It comes and goes sporadically. After a short while the idle will return to normal and the check engine light will turn off. During the times the check engine light turns on and I turn the vehicle off, it gives me difficulty starting it again. I have to press the gas down while cranking over the engine to start it.

My 1991 Buick Regal (3.1 engine) use to start a high RPMs and then slowly, as the engine warms up, the RPMs would come down to about 800, which is the normal. However a few weeks ago, it started to start a higher-than normal RPMs, and instead of coming down as the engine warms up, it keeps going up to a certian point. Then it would stay high, no matter how long I wait for the engine to warm up.

1986 Honda Civic HB: when starting cold engine, starts at very fast idle speed and immediately dies. The same thing happens with the next 3-4 restarts, then the fast idle really races. I don't have a tachometer but I'd bet the engine rpm is around 2000. After the engine warms up, the idle is normal and re-starting a warm engine is no problem. Question: what is the cause and how is it fixed? I have paid more than the car is worth to a couple of mechanics and they can't seem to fix what seem

I have a 93 Dodge Colt 1.5 liter engine. I've noticed in the last month or so after it starts that the idle seems to go high and take 15 or 20 seconds to get back down to normal.

But when you apply so revs immediately after starting, say 1400 for about 30secs, and then let it idle, it does not cut even when the engine check light comes on.

I have a 2002 RX-300. When I start the engine and let off the ignition, the engine quits. It will do this over and over, but when I step on the gas peddle to keep the idle up for a couple of minutes, then it will run just fine. Some days it starts normally and no problem, and after running the vehicle and shut the enigne down for a short period of time, it starts up and runs normally. No Enigine light comes on.
