1973 dodge dump truck rebuilt the carborator and it still keeps cutting off when at idle. Any sugestions?


CHECK FLOAT LEVEL IS CORRECT. IF YES CHANGE OUT FUEL FILTER AND FUEL PUMP. OLD DUMP TRUCKS GET A LOT OF RUST IN FUEL TANK. YOU MAY NEED TO COAT THE INSIDE OF TANK. THERE ARE COATING KITS AVAILABLE.

I HAVE A 1989 TOYOTA CORROLLA. iCAN START BUT IT DOES NOT IDLE. I HAVE TO KEEP FOOT ON ACCELERATOR PAD TO KEEP THE MOTOR RUNNING AND IT STOLLS WNEN APPROACING TO STOP. FROM FRANKLIN SOUTH AFRICA.


If your carb has one, check the idle cut-off solenoid wiring and operation first. If that checks out your idle jet is either blocked or the volume adjustment screw is out of adjustment. Start with the volume adjustment screw by turning it all the way in (counting the number of turns it took) and then turning it out about three turns. See if you can get the engine to idle at that setting or somewhere near that. If that does not work, replace the screw to the original position and remove the idle jet and ensure that it is not clogged.

I have to keep my foot on the gas so it wont cut off


I think the problem would be in the Idle Air Control Valve or the Throttle Position Sensor. The idle air control valve can get clogged with soot. It can be removed and cleaned with carb cleaner, which may take care of the problem. Be careful not to lose or damage the o ring seals. If cleaning shows some improvement, but does not cure the problem then replace the idle air valve.

2004 chevorlet impala ls engine cut off after a few seconds it keeps running only if foot is on the accellerator


idle air speed motor might be gummed up. it controls your idle speed. remove and clean with spray carb cleaner to see if symptoms improve. Other problems could be vacuum leak or stuck EGR valve or PCV valve.

Just need to know where the fuel cut off relay is


I guess on the Carb, at the idle port, its a solenoid I suspect.

91 honda accord cut off


Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Rough Idle and then the veh cuts off


Have you tried cleaning the mass air flow sensor ? Use Qtip and carb cleaner to remove any gunk on the two wires that strech across the inside.
