When was your last tune-up? New spark plugs, plug wires, and an air filter along with some fuel treatment can go a long way.

94 nissan altima won't start and iddle after cleaning IACV valve


An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body. The cars computer or PCM (powertrain control module) receives information from various sensors and will output signals to adjust the idle air control motor in or out to adjust engine idle speed by controlling engine idle air. An idle air control motor can fail one of two ways, either the motor short circuits and stops working or the motor will develop high resistance and cause the idle air control motor to react slowly, either failure can cause the engine to stall at idle. When a trouble code scan is performed it sometimes won't always detect a failed or weak idle air control motor.

My 2005 Town & Country (3.3L Engine) 114K miles is acting strange. I often have difficulty keeping the engine running. For example the ignition key turns just fine but doesn't sustain the engine on...


New air cleaner needed? That's the simple, cheap fix. Happened to my wife's Volvo once. Thought the EFI was toast and the air cleaner was caked with gunk. Maybe dirty injectors. Try some fuel additive to clean them.

If it is the EFI system, maybe something simple like idle control valve (happened on my newish Subaru), or one of the other sensors: TPS, O2, MAP/MAF, etc. It simply sounds like it is running too lean or rich at idle. Injectors could be bad too. Sounds like you need a different mechanic.

2000 dodge Durango... idle is very weak at stop lights, feels like it will stall. No light is on though...


Sounds like you either have a low fuel pressure, brought on by either a weak fuel pump, or possibly a bad fuel pressure regulator.

94 sunbird stalls when stopping


Could be an idle air control problem, or possible vacuum booster trouble, have also seen the baffle broken in the GM tanks and when you brake hard the engine dies. Fill the tank and try it, if it doesn't do it the baffle is bad.

Ford ranger truck overheating


I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.
