Did you lose power to the cig lighter or the auxilury one(the one with two by each other)?if you lost power to the auxilury power then its not a fuse, but a bolky black one, , this should help with that problem, as for the idiling one, change the fuel filter and if you havent change spark and wires very easy to do. Should do the trick, had the idling thing and helped when i changed the sparks and wires. good luck

Rough idle stalling, only runs when pumping gas pedal


Either not enough air or fuel. Check the air filter and gas filter. Also could be the exhaust system Catalytic converter clogged. No air out, no air in.

Fix rough idle and stalling on 1986 S10 blazer.only keeps running if pumping gas pedal. was running good and all of a sudden started dying out.


I would start by changing the fuel filter. Run some injector cleaner through it. And check for more of those rotten lines. You can check by spraying a little starting fluid around the vacuum lines. Be careful though. Its flammable. But the engine should speed up if you have a leak.

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.

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

Hi I take it that you are using a well grounded test lite and that it is working properly.My very best idea is #1 check relay and or fuse,2nd check continuity of wire ,it may be broken a tester is unexpencive.I would purchase a roll of wire long enough to reach from your battery to the fuel pump plug,attach wire to one male prongs and another as a ground and see if ya get your fuel pump running.Please be carefull of sparks if tank smells of gas.Is the plug contact area clean?I hope ya don't think I'm talking to ya like your a dummie ,not,not,not,I hope this helps you.I own the same truck but an 02 with 60,000 on it 3.4 motor great little trucks,my brother had one 280,000 no problems,just wanted a new one.

Engine wont idle unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal


First, try a new accelerator pump. They're less than $10 and easy to install. On the side of the carburator, near the linkage. It's simple a small rubber diaphragm.

you may have a fuel delivery problem. If you are having to prime the vehicle in order for it to start. than your gas is not getting to the engine with out help. I would check the fuel pump and filter.

1999 toyota tacoma Sr5 won't start


Check for fuel pressure when starting. Fuel pumps have a check valve in them that keep fuel in the rail at the injectors. If the check valve fails, the pump has to pump fuel all of the way up to the engine. Same thing with hot no-restarts. Fuel pump.
