Question about 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Vehicle stops running when I let off of gas pedal

When I crank it if I don't hold the gas pedal to a kinda high idle it will go dead. Same as when at a stop sign. It does'nt do it all the time but more often than not

First thing it sounds like is a Partially Plugged Fuel Filter, Chhange your Fuel Filter 1st,Its the Least expensive, If that does'nt Fix it, You could have a Faulty Fuel Pump which is in your Fuel Tank. These are the most common problems. Hope this Solves your Problem.

2004 GMC YUKON DENALI idling rough and trouble starting


unless you want to blow up the intake stop giving it gas before you turn it over what you are doing is dangerous all you are doing is dumping raw unburned gas into the bottom of the intake to the motor, one of these times you go to start it it will do this boom really loud then die, it will lift the whole back end of the vehicle off the ground, then if you try to start it again okay I edited the answer also could be your catalytic convertor plugged is the exhaust coming out good, change the sensors whatever you do stop pumping the gas if it wont start now get in as you need silence so shut the door and the radio off can you hear the fuel pump? it will sound like a huum for a few seconds if you cant there is your problem all I can say is stop pumping the gas as that's why its running bad you are burning out the sensors and all the computer code stuff and wasting expensive gas too. you prolly fouled your plugs as well.

Pls location of acceleration position sensor on nissan pathfinder turbo diesel 2004 model


That should be you gas pedal assy

They never fail ,so you better look at
scan tool data & scope the 3 or so switches
before you replace it.

What is the problem?

I would be looking for a dead battery,checking both sides
of the TPS Sensor with a scope,not just a meter,as well as
scan tool,& maybe you have bad COP ignition Coils

I don't have any idea what your issues are but I can guess
at what they may be,if your idle isn't right,no power on the road,
shuts off when coming to a stop or pulling away,won't go up a hill,
etc

It sounds like your security system is the culprit.The computer does'nt reconize the code on your ignition key and it thinks some is triying to steal it so the computer shuts the injectors off.You will probably have to replace the ignition switch and the ignition lock cylinder.

I have a 2002 chey blazer 4x4 extreme. When you get to about 20 miles an hour there is a roaring sound. It runs fine, however it does idle high, so much that when you put it in gear you don't have to...


The roaring sound is the front wheel bearings, jack up the front wheels and check for play side to side, as for the high idle the vacuum lines on the top of the motor they also run up by the bottom of the windshield on down to the from diff are probly rotted and leaking please rate

Car dies when running and wont start again, i spay starting fluid in the throtle and it starts but if i let go of the gas it dies again and i can't start it normaly, fuel pump about 4 months old, new fuel...


Sounds like throttle position sensor to me. It will let engine go dead instead of maintaining an idle rpm. Try disconnecting battery,and after leaving disconnected for a couple of minutes,crank vehicle and maintain a steady rpm with gas pedal. Doesn't have to be revved up high just steady. Called relearning tps. Sensor might be bad but I would try this before buying a part first.

Cranks right up but cuts off immediately unless the gas pedal is pressed


IF YOU RECENTLY UNHOOKED BATTERY OR HAD DEAD BATTERY THE COMPUTER WILL NEED TO RELEARN IDLE STRATEGY,START VEHICLE KEEP IT RUNNING AND DRIVES ON 2OR 3 MILE RUN SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT IF THIS DOESN,T WORK LOOK FOR VACUUM LEAKS IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT OR POSSIBLE BAD IDLE AIR CONTROL LOCATED NEAR THROTTLE BODY
