You need to adjust the screw for the idle on the carburetor it should be in the driver side next to the accelerate cable.

1989 300 SE mercedes benz dies after driving for 5 to 10 miles and will restart after it cools down. start easy and idles ok.

Could be the egr valve is sticking open. I would try diabling the valve by pulling the vacuum line off the egr valve vacuum port. You can plug the hose with a golf tee or bolt to run the test. Then drive the car on the highway where it would normally act up. If it still acts up, put the vacuum line back on the valve and check for other leaks, such as vacuum leaks--maybe the intake manifold gaskets.

1992 cavalier. starts and drives fine, but will die after it's been driven if i try to put it in gear again. What's the problem? bought it site unseen, drove it home about 7 miles and it started sputtering...

Try pulling the vacuum line off of the EGR valve when the engine is warm and starts to sputter. If it runs good cold and then dies when warm and won't start again until the engine cools it is most likely a bad or sticking EGR valve. Try the procedure to confirm it is the EGR. You can check the internet for location and an image of the EGR valve for your specific car. Please rate me on this answer.

My car dies out after ten minutes of driving, then it won't start until after it cools down. I just changed the main relay. What could it be?

Find the EGR valve on or near your intake. It will have on vacuum line connected to it. Start the engine when it is cold and wait for it to warm up. Once it begins to stumble and die, remove the vacuum hose from the EGR and if the engine holds idle and continues running, replace the EGR. It should be 2 bolts to remove and might have a gasket you will need to replace. It should be a fairly inexpensive repair that you can do yourself. Please rate me on this answer.

The car will start and drive but when i put on the brakes its dies

Hi and welcome to FixYa. The symptom your describing points to a bad BRAKE vacuum assist diaphram on the firewall of the engine compartment and attached to the Master Cylinder.

Remove the vacuum line from the large vacuum assist cannister and PLUG IT. Don't drive the car just start it and put on the brake. If it does not die then you know the vacuum assist assy is bad.

You can prove it by simply reconnecting the vacuum line and stepping on the brake with the engine running.... engine dies... you found the culprit.

Thanks for using FixYa!

How to remove the egr valve on a 1993 mercury grand marquis

Jack up the passengers side of the car, get a 1 1/16" wrench break loose the fitting to the manifold, hold a 24 mm wrench on the fitting to the manifold, loosen the flare nut on the tube. Then using a 10 mm socket, about 2 inches long, loosen the two nuts under the EGR valve, then take the both out, remove the vacuum hose to the top of the EGR valve, and the sensing line from the small tube. then completely remove the flare nut from the orifice fitting on the manifold. BE CAREFUL with the tube, do not bend it or break it, you may find PB blaster useful the night before on a cold engine loosen these fittings. Once the EGR valve is out, remove the orifice out of the manifold, remove the tube from the EGR valve, again be careful, mark the tube to EGR position before pulling this off, because the top fitting to EGR needs tightened before you put it back in, it will make the lower fitting difficult if you do not line it up right, dry fitting from under the car is helpful, mark it, and then tighten the top. Clean out the tube, be careful not to bend the little tube, either inside or outside the larger tube, it sticks out inside. Clean the orifice, clean the manifold face carefully not to score it, check for blockage there too. Apply anti-seize to the orifice, put it back in the manifold, then apply anti-seize to the bolts for the EGR valve, and the flare nuts both ends. Apply some silicon to the EGR valve face, just enough to hold the gasket in place, put the new gasket on, start the bolts two turns in the gasket, it will hold them in place, then start them in the manifold, then start the lower flare fitting to orifice, tighten the top bolts, and then the flare nut, connect the vacuum line, connect the sensing line. I just recently did this process, it works, if have other EGR issues, the valve is the easiest.

85 ford tbird will start fine but then will dies when put into drive or reverse unless I am constantly tapping the gas, in which case it barely stays running. What would cause this?

I had an 84 Bird. There were 2 places to set the idle. If someone has worked on it or if the first setting fails, it can give you that problem. Check for a loose vacuum line going to a carburetor part. Sometimes putting in a new air filter will cause the vacuum line to fall off.

The next thing to check is an EGR valve that is not closing. This will cause the engine to stall at idle.

Finally, if you need a diagnosis the Autozone or O'reilly auto parts people will scan your car for free. They may be able to sell you a part you can put on yourself to solve the problem.
Good Luck
