Question about 1993 Chevrolet Lumina APV

2 Answers

Stalling and very hard start

Engine will stall while driving at slower speeds.  It will sometimes start right back up while other times it will take several cranks to start.  Also sometimes it will not start after it has ran for a while, leave it for at least a few minutes, andthen go backand try to start it.

Sounds like the Idle Air Controller needs to be cleaned or replaced. Check to see if it is dirty and slow to function, if it is, pull it off and clean it with chlorine free brake cleaner, let it dry then give it a small shot with silicone spray lube. This is what cured my issues with hard start and stalling.

I have a 1998 mercury tracer it has been giving me alot of problems latley i am planning on getting ready to buy a new car in febuary but i need this one to last a little longer the car runs ok but...


You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

2004 Envoy xl stalls when making turns


this is caused by slow engine idle speed, do the procedure below.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
