Starts and idle good wont accelerate.car sat for a year just put another motor in with 115000


Ok ...is the air filter been changed ...start there first.at idle the engine isn't in need of any big air and will use the surface air around it to run.if there is any air restrictions for air to flow it won't .then that's when engine dies.make sure it's getting enough air
Number one thing of all thing that run on gas at fault is the neglected air filter.a engine that runs on gas needs 3 thing to make it go fuel.spark.and you guest it air!

1995 Buick LeSabre 3.8 Liter Wont start unless I push down on gas pedal like it wants more gas, Why? Runs OK when running


Possibly a bad or dirty Idle Air Control motor. The engine computer controls the operation of this motor to control idle speed. A pintle on the motor extends and retracts, according to signal from the computer. The pintle controls an air passage below it to give or take away air during idle -when the throttle shaft is closed, no air will get into the engine through the throttle body except through the idle air passage . The IAC motor or valve is on the throttle body, with a 4 wire connector. Take it off and look for carbon or coking deposits around the valve's pintle, and in the air passage beneath it. With the idle valve off, plug the connector back on it, then watch the pintle as the key is turned to on. If there is no movement whatsoever, the motor is probably bad.

I have also heard that a bad coolant temperature sensor can cause such a hard start. If the computer does not know the engine is cold, it won't put enough gas into the cylinders for easy starts. The engine needs more gas to start and run when cold.

power steering only works when motor is running. If car is running and you are having this problem it could be as simple as low power steering fluid...have it check...good luck and hope this helps some.

First of all there is a vacume leak, second how is the air filter?, tell the husband to change the MAF mass air flow sensor and I would also change the TEMP tempreature sensor.

Ran out of gas.. that nite below feezin temps. car froze. allowed car to thaw. added gas... wont start. no oil leak. no water in oil. was pushed out of road wen car ran out of gas.. is there a fuel reset...


No ressting to do. You need to remove all air from the fuel lines. Running out of gas in any fuel injected vehicle is a big no no for it is so expensive to get back running right. Add 5 gallons of fuel to get good priming pressure first of all
Turn the ignition key on for 5 secondes and turn it off for ten secocds. Do this step 5 time to bring up fuel pressure to the engine
Next try and start it
If it does not start release the air pressurized in the fuel line at the fuel rail above the engine. It looks like a tire air fill valve. Use a rag to catch the gas that spews out as you bleed the air out
Now turn the igition key on and off again for 5 times as stated above and proceed to start the engine once more
Good luck

Your diff could be going out or the transmission is having issues. Does your burb have a Locker in the rear? My 02 had the Locking Differential and i blew two of them up; a mile from home it busted so i put it in 4wheel and drove back on the front axle, the rear was spinning freely then it locked up and i came to a very quick stop- any sounds while taking tight turns?

GMC Sonoma Automatic Transmission Problem


The transmission is this truck is a 4L60E. It is electronicly controled through several sensors. It will sense the load on the motor mainly through the TPS (throttle position sensor).It is not uncommon for you to have to really press the gas to make it down shift. Alot of the feeling depends on gear ratio in the rear end. The 4.3 is a very good engine, but it combined with a high gear rear end and overdrive may really seem under powered. You can put a programmer on it to change all the shift and power feel.If you are not having a hesitation issue then it will most likley not be the tps. You may just need a fuel and air filter, not knowing when it was last changed. The programmer is the best way to get the feeling you may be used to. Good Luck
