Question about 1992 Suzuki Sidekick

1 Answer

Car will start and idle well. When I give it gas it dies.

Was running fine, just happen suddenly, after sitting a few days. There are two air (vacume?) hose's that are not connected to anything below the injection manifold. Don't remember them being there or where to hook them back too. One looks like it goes to the bottom of a can shape thing. the other is cliped into a hose holder down on the frame with the end a good 6 inches from anything.

Thanks for you help

Look for the diagram under the hood to find where the hose goes. next to the TPS are two little pipes where, there must be a hose connected to eachone and u have another that goes to the MAP sensor installed in the fire wall next to the battery.

My 2007 Kymco 500 MXU starts and idles fine but when you hit the throttle it dies instantly. Ran fine then this all of sudden happened. It did sit for almost a year. Any idea's???


It may be as simple as a bad fuel filter. if the filter is plugged, you may get enough of fuel to idle car, But when giving it gas. there is not enough fuel reaching engine, to keep it running. Its worth a try! God-Bless!

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 VW Jetta. A few days ago my car after sitting in the hot sun all day idled very roughly then died at stop signs. The next morning it was fine, but the same thing happened in the afternoon. ...


run fault codes and look for a fuel supply sensor/servo failure. The heat is affecting the fuel system and is causing a fuel vapour lock or is over pressuring the injectors.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
