Question about 1995 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Car cuts off when I take foot off the gas peddle.

I think it's bad gas. The gas I used may be watered down. It idles high when I start it. When I put it in gear it idles down but when I push the gas and then release it the car shuts off.

2001Mercedes E320. Drives fine until I take my foot off gas peddle the car is still running but gas peddle does not work turn off then on runs fine until I take my foot off the peddle what is happing


If you have drive by wire. I would check the TPS first. It's under the gas pedal. (bad location). Unplug it and plug it back it. (bad connection) see if it still does it. If so. Have the codes read. I replace a lot of these because of the location. Bad water and moisture source.

Possibly blocked fuel filter, when you press the pedal it starves the engine or fuel causing it to cut out. Only a few quid for a fuel filter so I'd start there

I disconnected my battery in 08 tundra and now it wont idle


disconecting batt resets the computer. now it needs to learn how to set everything to run again. disconnect batt for atleast 60 seconds, re atach, start car it will start and die(dont press gas) do this over and over until it idles (could take up to 10 times). by pressing the gas you make the computer think it is idling to high so it keeps turning down the idle. it will idle fine after reseting computer and starting several times without hitting gas peddle.

My toyota hilux surf 1992 auto, 3L 4x4, keeps cutting out when i put it in reverse and drive. sometimes it will go for a couple of minutes then just cut out randomlly. whats wrong with it and how do i fix...


Sounds like the idle is too low. This could be due to a bad vaccuum line or a faulty IAC if this car has fuel injection. IAC = Idle Air Control motor. Check for loose or broken vaccuum lines first. If no vacuum are bad and you can keep the car running by keeping your foot on the gas a little and dies when you let the gas pedal up then I would think the IAC is bad. A poor idle can also be the result of a long overdue tune up.

IS THERE AWAY TO BYPASS THE FUEL FILTER SO THE CAR WILL RUN UNTIL WE CAN GET A NEW ONE. THE CAR WILL NOT STAY RUNNING. HAVE TO HAVE YOUR FOOT ON THE GAS TO START ONCE YOU REMOVE YOUR FOOT FROM THE GAS...


Are you sure that bypassing the fuel filter will solve that problem? I would not recommending doing so. If you bypass the filter then any trash coming in through the fuel will clog the injection ports. And then the car will absolutely not run. Cleaning injection ports are mighty expensive. If you suspect trash coming into the fuel, purchase a few fuel filters... about three. They are not expensive and are realitively easy to replace. If a new fuel filter helps the car run, then great! Just replace it again when the car starts stalling. Eventually, all trash from the fuel will be filtered out.

However, I do not think that a simple filter would effect the idling of the car. The idle can be adjusted, though I do not know how on your specific car. Also, you may have a faulty throttle position sensor.

Engine will start at very low idle, sometimes killing, then may fast idle, then low idle, back and forth. What may cause this?


check and make sure air filter is ok, and there are no restrictions in hose to throttle body, check iac (idle air control.
