Stalling on hills

Hi has anyone got any idea why my 740 would stall out on hills if you give it to much gas.

Hi,
Have you had your intake manifold cleaned out before? They can really get gunk-ed up. It only requires some Throttle Body Cleaner to be sprayed inside the intake. Be sure that the engine is NOT running when you do that.
Also spark plugs do not come pre-gapped. You need to adjust them to the correct gap.

Cheers,
Ken

Try cleaning the throttle body around the butterfly. Gas carbon will build up in the throttle body and that will cause one to stall or not run good. I just use starting fluid and screw driver and rag, does a good job. Hope this fixes it, Mitchell.

88 wrangler stalling 5 speed 4 cyl


Was there any water in the tank? Has anyone changed the fuel filter? Has anyone checked the ceramic ballast resistor on the drivers fender near the master cylinder?
Has anyone checked the crank sensor output? Did anyone see if it will run if you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body after starting? Are there pulses present at injector? You need to verify these things to get some idea what is going on there.

'93 Aerostar-stalls while driving/scary-stalls in 'drive' at stops


Wow!!! Now that's a headfull of problems....
This could be a great many things...
Check these before you sell. I have a '93 Aerostar and can't live without it.
1. Check idle speed
2. Fuel filter may be clogged or water in the fuel system.
3. Choke improperly adjusted or sticking.
4. Distributor components damp or damaged.
5. Faulty emissions components.
6. Faulty or incorrectly gapped spark plugs/ Also check wires.
7. Vacuum leak at the carburetor/fuel injection unit or vacuum hoses.
8. On 1986 models, stalling during idle or deceleration may be caused by sludge in the throttlebody. (2.3 litre engine)
9. On 1986 & 1987 models with a 2.3 litre engine,hesitation or stalling during acceleration may be caused by carbon build-up on the intake valves.....I hope this helps!! Adios
