    Gasoline or diesel? Check your oxygen sensor, it might be defective.

The probes use the mazda motor.... the engine light is caused by a lean fuel mixture...this happens on almost every american motor..its the ecu tuning. this is a way for the a-spec motor to have less horsepower, but they detuned too far. if you replace the ecu with the j-spec one you will not have the light, and gain somewhere around 15 hp im not sure how much or how dramatic the losing power thing is but i do know that the 2.5l motors love LOVE the rpms... so 3,000 rpm is really where the motor starts to run good, other than that im not sure

95 gmc sierra won't hold steady rpm


Sounds like wiring problems with the engine harness.
The oil pressure not working could cause the hard starting problem.
The idle problem could be a faulty idle air control valve or a vac leak.
I would start with the check engine light and find out what the codes are.

Trac off light


chances are its a bad sensor for the traction control...that would make it bog down because the car think the tires have started to spin n lowers its rpm level to bring the car back in control...even though the cars tires arent spinning...check and replace.

Envoy 2004 idle speed


Hi
your problem seems very easy :) hope this one work with your envoy. Just buy AC DELCO carburetor tune-up conditioner.

How you use it: engine running , AC off please

1. detached the big black airflow hose which is attached in the mannifold of the engine block.

2. ask your friend to step on the gas pedal and set the rpm steady in 2000 rpm only.

3. then spray vigorously in 8 seconds the inside circle opening of mannifold while your friend steady step on gas pedal with steady 2000 RPM only.

4. after you spray, let your freind continue on gas pedal with 2000 rpm for 15 more seconds.

5. attached back the airflow big black hose to the manifold and you are ready to roll with your AC on.

if this one doesnt work, please scan your envoy by scanner called TECH II. and find out.
