Question about 1992 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Stalls when acellerator is depressed 4.9 litre engine

Problem has been getting worse over about a month to where it is dangerous. Got E12 and E412 codes so replaced the distributor with little improvement. Acts like a fuel delivery problem or bad TPS but no trouble code to indecate such. Your expert diagnosis and suggestions would be most appreciated.

I have aVW jetta 4, 2.0 highline, 2001 that stalls engine at low gears. The situation becomes worse when the aircon is on.

Engine stalling issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve 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

check for vacuum leaks ---transmission actuator and hose
vent control hoses , any where the there is vacuum control
the idle air control sensor would be a suspect so check wiring , connections and the sensor itself

Whats wrong with my jaguar x-type 2003 after i start the car then drive off the amber light says cruise control not working,, then it also stall's or hessitates when trying to excellerate or pass another...

I have exactly the same problem on mine-you explained perfectly,i was told i need to change the cruise control computer.I recently had the thermostat changed and the mechanic wiped the engine sign off that was triggered by the cruise control not available sign coming on-when he did this it took about a month for the problem to recur so i think the probelm is definately electrical not mechanical or it would have happened straight after he wiped the engine sensor light.could be air mass sensor could be cruise control computer-when i get some money i'll get it done

92 pickup 22Re engine, runs great when cold but after heating up engine stalls and with no acelleration, and hesitation. After cooling off runs fine

Almost certainly a faulty cam sensor. This sensor suffers over time with the repetitive effect of getting hot and then cold along with the engine. The cam sensor determines when cylinder 1 is at compression TDC and this timing dictates the fuel injection cycle on the engine. If the cam sensor fails to report signals then the ECU fails to inject fuel appropriately and the engine stalls. Many times as the cam sensor gets hot it expands and any discontinuity becomes apparent. As soon as it cools down the cam becomes functional again.

the 2.7l has a sludge problem. This could cause the stalling and loss of power. There's a few fixes, the new water pump (which is part of the problem) doesn't dump coolant into the oil pan. Easy way to check is to simply drop the oil pan.
