Basics: 1. Do you have spark at the spark plugs?
2. Is fuel getting to the cylinders?
3. What are the compression readings? (only perform if spark is good, and fuel quality and quantity are good at end of injectors)

You could pour a little fuel at the intake. But, in order to know for sure you need to check for correct fuel pressure and volume. Check to see if you have spark at the spark plugs, also. Need to diagnose properly to save from having to buy anything you don't need to buy.

Check engine light on, while decellerating on freeway offramp the engine dropped down to an idle. when pressing the accelerator the engine barely raises the rpm's. linkage seems ok.


Check engine light usually means some failure in emissions control
system. Kia will have to hook up and get diagnostic code or codes.

Car runs great and has about 200k on it. I have had it since it was new but about 100k ago the car started stalling after extended trips on the freeway. At the base of the offramp one out of 10 times the...


it sounds like the vehicle is starving itself for fuel... if it runs fine in town, or on close trips... sounds like when your on the freeway, and got the gas down its demanding fuel, and not getting what it needs to run, thats why it will start right back up.. if i were you i think i would start with the cheapest thing first and replace the fuel filter.. hope this helps.

85 vette fuel injection fine after first cold start then runsroug


something wrong with mixture thats for sure,but only being a europeon mechanic without a lot of experiance on yank tanks iam not sure exactly what the problem could be ,but if one bank of injectors are not operating ??have you checked for a feed to the suspect bank ??(electrical)because in my eye if they operate when cold then stop when autochoke shuts off then its a fault with the ECU or a sensor on that bank??

1985 chevy blazer smoked and died


To start off you can probably get a manual at Autozone. To get a good idea of what's really going on in the engine you might want to check compression, wet and dry, check fuel output psi and do the basics, IE plugs, rotor and cap, plug wires, etc. At least if you do the checks you'll have an idea of the engines condition, if it's worth putting alot of money into. Please rate this and good luck.

Car died right as getting off freeway had to tow home again


shouldnt worry about compression ratio pressures as yet ,if all gauges going up the swanie then either altenator is overcharging and the voltage burnt things out or a gremlin got into works when you visited the mountains in whick case call ghost busters ,must go first customer has arrived
