I have a 90 chev blazer that runs rough when i apply the brake ,it also has a high idle and runs rich .?


I would look at the vacuum booster control unit .
This is the power assiest for the brakes it runs off the main engine vacuum,
If its leaking inturnailly you would lose engine vacuum that would make it run rough when you hit the brakes .
Also if the check valve inside of this unit were stuck it could cause a vary high idle
Try hitting the brake pedel when its idleing high in park and see what effict it has on the engine speed .
If it changes this is for sure your problem.

Why does my 2003 pontiac grand prix maintain speed on flat surface when cruise is not turned on?


Sounds dangerous and hard on breaks. I\'d catty with the throstle linkage under the hood. It should twist open with a bit of pressure, than snap shut when you let go. Yours won\'t. The return spring is worn, stretched out, or most likely gone missing or fell out. Find it and hook it up. Or any spring with the power to pull it back to a closed position. Must be hard to restart the car after it\'s warmed up too.

09 Aveo loses power



The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.



The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

My 98 dodge ram vibrates bad at 40 mph plus at a steady low rpm. if i step on the gas it kinda stops and if i let go of the gas is stops completely it also started misfiring when it started this


Torque convertor shutter? Maintain the speed that it does this, and with your left foot, apply a small amount of pressure to the brake pedal. Not enough to slow vehicle, but enough to disengage the lock up convertor. If it goes away, try servicing the fluid with new 7176. if that doesnt do it, replace the convertor.
