Where is the speed sensor at on a chevy z71 1994 4x4 truck


I think you made a big mistake throttle body fuel injection that you removed is much much more superior to any carburetor that's on the market, what were you thinking. I imagine when you put the carburetor on you did not reattach the throttle positioning sensor. Your engine control module needs the information from your throttle positioning sensor. You might try to have the problem chip in your ECM reprogram. And what are you doing about a fuel pump, the carburetor runs on 5 to 7 pounds of pressure, your fuel pump spreading around 30 pounds, and the fuel regulator with in the throttle body. the best advice, is to reinstall the throttle body, before you cause a permanent damage to other systems on the vehicle.

By your description it sounds like you have carburetor issues, Possible clogged metering jets , a float problem , throttle adjustment or even possibly a major vacuum leak.

2002 Chrysler Sebring dies at low rpm and will not crank over


Your throttle body is probably dirty,The throttle body has a hose from the air filter housing attached to it,the throttle body is attached to the intake phlenum.Take the hose off(its rubber with a clamp on it).Do this with a cold engine, NOT RUNNING ! spray some carburetor cleaner inside the venturi and scrub it with a toothbrush,on the side of the throttle body there is a place where a cable goes into,twist the direction of cable to open the throttle plate(inside the throttle body),and continue to clean.Now put it all back together.What happens over a period of time is the Throttle body gets clogged with carbon and cannot breath at idle, the throttle plate when close(at idle)has a very small air gap and cant breath when dirty.If this does not cure your problem,then you will need to consider having your ais motor check.ais= automatic idle speed motor.For this you will have to take the throttle body off to replace it and the screws have been installed with locktight and are tricky to get out.Hope this helps,I did not know what year or make of car, but its a common problem since the fuel injectors took the place of the carburetors.
  • ** Be careful that any cleaners used are for Fuel Injected systems and are O2 sensor safe. Some Carburator Cleaners can damage FI components.**
  • Spraying a throttle body spray cleaner, such as one sold by STP, to clean the throttle body, then starting up and revving the engine, may be enough to dislodge the carbon deposits and material blocking the airway.

Engine fluctuating and cutting out all the time when slowing down to stop cos the revs drop too low


Hi.

If engine revolutions are going up and down even when you are driving, then you have a problem with the EGR valve.

If problem is only when engine is idle, most common fault is the IAC (idle air control) valve, which regulates air when engine is idle. If IAC is OK, check air intake and the sensors installed in the air intake (MAF and IAT). The sensors detect the amount and temperature of air coming into the intake and determine the right amount of air to be mixed with fuel and injected.

There are more problems that even if less frequently can cause rough idle. A good thing to do would DBII DTC scan can be done for free at the nearest Autozone.

Regards.

Tune up and clean the throttle plate


Ford is notorius for bad breathing.There EGR system is terrible, it always causes a lot of carbon build up in the throttle plates. The best thing to do, is to take of the throttle body assembly and digg out the carbon thats restricting the air flow. Also, it is a good rule or thumb to clean the throttle plate with carb & throttle cleaner with a tooth brush. Add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to a full tank of gas. While your doing all this you might as well change the EGR valve. If you follow the air intake pipe from the air filter box, it should lead you to the throttle body assembly. The EGR valve is located on the passenger side by the fire wall underneath the heater hoses and AC lines. Good luck, Ford engineers must have been drinking when they designed their vehicles, they don't make anything easy.

Sticky gas pedal


it is a dirty throttle plate. $280 is an absolute ripoff for a cleaning, it is about 10-15 minutes of work. They are probably quoting replacing the throttle body which about a $150 part.

Got to Autozone and get "CRC Throttle Body Cleaner". Remove aire inlet hose at throttle body with a screwdriver. Spray a *small* bit onto throttle plate, use clean rag or qtips to remove gum/varnish. Spray pivots and also clean around perimeter of the plate. Take it to an independent mechanic if you are unsure of the procedure.
