Sounds like you may have a clogged catalytic converter. do you hear a air rushing sound from the exaust when accelerating? or alot of intake noise. have someone rev the car up and feel if the exhaust is superhot but be carefull!! you should be able to hold your hand there for a couple of secounds about 3 inches away without burning yourself. if it is superhot you have a bad converter. disconect the exhaust from the engine and sewe if the power is back to normal. good luck

Starts good wont idle stalls. if i give it a mid rpm will hold steady, let go of throttle runs rough and dies


Hi Russell:
I'd start by looking for a vacuum leak, often associated with the PVC valve. Make sure the PVC valve is not obstructed. Possible dirty air filter.
How long since regular Preventive maintenance was done?
Cheers

Why no accelerator control


Your throttle position sensor (TPS) is bad.

My car smells like gas, and the odor gets stronger the longer it sets at an idle. The gas mileage has decreased by 6mpg. The first time it starts for the day the rpm's rev up an dit sounds like you ar


When you smell the strong odor of gasoline and the car runs rough the coolant temperature sensor has failed (no exceptions) The engine is usually slow to start the first time. turn it off and it starts right up next try.

Hi i have a 2002 hyundai xg350l while driving the car accelerates without depressing the pedal further, in park when i reach 4000 rpm the rpm shoots up to about 4500 rpm without depressing the pedal...


I'd say sounds kinda like a missfire although with the absence of an engine code I would lean more towards a vacuum leak somewhere. Chk all your lines while cars running to see if you might have a vacuum leak.

93 grand cherokee has a very rough idle what could be the problem


Also check the vaccum hose from the fuel pressure regulator to the intake manifold, it is right on top, to the front right of the valve cover where the fuel lines attach to the fuel rail, there is a small vaccum hose that runs from the regulator to the intake manifold, I have a 93 grand cherokee limited w/ 4.0L 6cyl, it was hard to start at times, wouldnt start at times without starting fluid spray and had your symptoms at idle, running rough like it wanted to stall like it was out of gas, I had various opinions ranging from fuel pump was bad to the fuel filter to the fuel presure regulator, the fuel pump relay ,etc....after replacing the relay and having the same symptoms, some digging brought me to this vaccum hose, wich had a break in it, when it was replaced it allowed the regulator to have the correct fuel pressure output and solved all the afforementioned problems way cheaper than the suggested alternitives. good luck.
