Question about 1990 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

90 chevy 5.7L k1500 failed emissions

Other symptoms:
High idle has been a problem for a long time & ''service engine soon'' light has been coming on intermittantly for quite awhile (months).
Have changed oil & filter, o2 sensor, egr valve, throttle position sensor, cat converter, air filter, checked & fixed vacuum lines (this allowed me to clear error codes 32 & 44). While doing this work over a few weeks, engine rpm began surging except when under acceleration. Had diagnostic test done 2 days ago, which revealed the driver side fuel injector was bad. Replaced the injector, which cured the surging, but the ''service engine soon'' light still comes on, and there is still a high idle.
When I got the truck after the test, the service manager said I might have a vacuum leak at the TBI base plate gasket. I have not had time to check this.
Any input is welcome. Thank you...

    appeared the error code 79, no oil leak, no high temperature heating po, no strange noises, the oil level sensor that is inside the crankcase was changed and the light began to appear.

    the oil level sensor was changed 2 times and reset the computer and is still on the board.

    Thanks Jorge A

Wood a bad idle air control valve cause car not to start


No, a bad idle control valve will not cause a "no start" scenario. See below:


"An IAV sometimes may fail, or can become troublesome. This can manifest itself through various problems while driving. Following are a few problems that may be caused by a faulty IAV. A rough running engine can be caused by a faulty IAV. If the valve begins to stick over time, or fails to respond to inputs from the car's computer, it may not properly adjust for engine loads and operating temperatures. If you notice that your car seems to run rough when it starts up, or once it warms up, it may be a good idea to check the IAV.
Sometimes you may notice that your car stalls at a stoplight or anytime you come to a stop. An IAV that isn't working correctly can cause that to happen because the engine's computer can no longer keep the engine idling. Many other things can cause stalls, so be sure to investigate other possibilities, such as bad spark plugs.
A failing IAV may cause the check engine light or service engine soon light to come on. Because the IAV plays a role in emissions control, if the valve fails it may cause problems with the engine's emissions control system. You can plug a scanner into vehicles equipped with an OBD II port for a quick diagnostic of the car's check engine light issue."

The check engine light on a 2001 beetle read code PO118 engine coolant temperature circuit high input. what do i do?


16502/P0118/000280 From Ross-Tech Wiki Jump to: navigation, search Contents [hide] if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = "show"; var tocHideText = "hide"; showTocToggle(); } 16502/P0118/000280 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too High Possible Symptoms
  • Difficulties with starting a cold engine.
  • Starting the engine when engine is warmish or warm, idle rpm immediately is 1200 - 3000 rpm.
  • RPM at idle is irregular.
  • With all engine temperatures idle rpm will often vary between 900 - 1000 rpm.
  • With engine warm (90 °C) the engine temperature suddenly drops (70 °C) and slowly comes back to 90 °C.
  • Bad acceleration during warm-up.
  • Diesel Engines: Glow plug indicator may be on for a longer than normal time or at ambient temperatures where it shouldn't come on at all.
Possible Causes
  • The electrical signal coming from G62 is too low
  • Wiring and/or connections faulty (short circuit?)
  • Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62) faulty
Possible Solutions
  • Check wiring and connections
  • Check / Replace Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62)
Special Notes
  • In many cars between MY 1995-2002 the G2/G62 had a bad reputation for failing often. The original G2/G62 sensor is black and the improved replacements are green.
