Have you had the computer control module checked for system fault codes? Repair as ness. Any Autozone or Advance auto parts does this test for free, ask for an "OBD2" test. If no codes are present in the computers memory then have the fuel pressure tested, if that is ok then try cleaning the MAF (mass airflow) sensor, it is located in the air intake hose that goes from the air cleaner housing to the engine. Use a product designed to clean the sensor made by a company called "CRC" chemicals.

What would cause my 1990 chevy cheyenne to bog down while accelerating ?


The idle air control valve only controls idle speed.
The most common causes are restricted exhaust or air intake, or low fuel pressure.
Is the check engine light on ?

Car idles fine, but sputters, bogs and dies if gas pedal is pressed.


new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.

Motor bogs down


You could possibly turn up the idle if it bogs down when idling. If it only bogs down when you press the gas it may be a clogged fuel filter or fuel line. Could also be your fuel pump starting to go if you ride with less than a quarter of a tank of gas most of the time.

Will run but bogs down until you back off of accerator


Have the TPS sensors voltage checked out. It controls the accellerator as you step on the gas pedal

Bogs and backfires


What have you done so far? Does your van have electronic ignition or points? If the latter i'd check/replace points, capacitor & white, low tension wire inside distributor. Also check the spark plugs (all four should have the same grey/brown colour) & H.T. lead resistance, especially if the fault occurs under load/acceleration.
