    Do you have fuel pressure? can you hear pump humming? What happens if you spray WD-40 into front of throttle body, with air cleaner assy hose off, with plate open, then try it, with out touching pedal?

Engine bogs down when attempting to accellerate


Is this a carbureted engine? If so, there's a little pump on the carburetor that squirts more gas into it when you hit the pedal. The diaphragm might be rotten and need replacement.

My 2005 Ford Focus won't stay running unless my foot is on the gas. It starts just fine & the check engine light is NOT on. What could be causing this?


It is likely that the engine management system has lost its base line calibration. If the battery is weak and during the crank to start the voltage dipped low enough the Engine Control Module lost its calibration. If the pedal is depressed during the crank the TPS (Throttle position sensor) will lose the idle position for the throttle. The hunting and surging and resultant stalling is the ECM seeking out the limits and re-establishing the throttle idle plate location.

If battery is OK than running the car allowing the calibration of the vehicle to reestablish itself will correct the problem. My experience is that this happens if the gas pedal is depressed during crank with a very very low battery voltage. Always the best way is to not touch the pedal during any cranking starting procedure. Or after a battery replacement.

To accelerate the calibration process attempt to run the car ingear tring not to allow the car to stall. After afew munites the car will have reestablished its normal running calibration and you will be allset.

Do you know anything about automotive electronic's ,serial data communication's between control module's ?
Circuit Description
When the ignition mode switch is placed in the START position, a discrete input is sent to the body control module (BCM) notifying it that engine start has been requested. The BCM then verifies that the brake pedal has been depressed with a discrete input from the brake pedal position sensor and that the key fob, with the correct code, is in the vehicle. After this information has been verified the BCM grounds the control side of the RUN/CRANK relay closing the switch side of it and allowing battery positive voltage to flow from the BATT 3 fuse through the RUN/CRANK relay switch, engine control module (ECM) fuse to the battery positive voltage side of the CRANK relay coil. The BCM also sends a high speed GMLAN message to the ECM requesting engine start. The ECM will then verify that the internal mode switch (IMS) is in Park / Neutral or the clutch pedal is fully depressed. After this has been verified the ECM then supplies 12 volts to the control circuit of the CRANK relay closing the CRANK relay switch circuit and allowing battery positive voltage to flow through the STARTER fuse, the CRANK relay switch to the S-terminal of the starter solenoid cranking the engine. Ground is supplied through the engine block.

96 crown Victoria wont start had the problem couple weeks ago guy said the idle control was off now I guess doing it again I cleaned it but still wont turn over


When you say it wont turn over that implies that you can not hear the starter turning the engine over. If you can hear the starter cranking the engine over but the engine will not start try holding the gas pedal to the floor. Be prepared for the engine to start and let off the gas. If the engine stalls when you let off the gas try starting again but feather the gas pedal after it starts. It it stays running with the pedal depressed than I would agree that there is an issue with the IAC and it may need to be replaced.

The oil system reminder needs to be reset so the computer knows you had the oil changed. The procedure is in the owners manual but can be tough to find so you might have to do a little searching for it. Many of the GM vehicles can be reset by turning the ignition key to "run" [but don't crank or start the engine] and then fully depressing and releasing the accellerator pedal smothly three times within 5 seconds. Turn the key off, wait about 10 seconds and restart the engine to see if the reset was successful. Check your manual first as not all GM's can be reset this way and yours may be different.

The car will not stay running after you start it. The fuel pump, spark plugs, and throttle position sensor have been changed.


Will it stay running if you hold your foot on the accellerator pedal??? If so you may need an iac ( idle air control)

Car wont stay running after initial start up?


Will it stay running if you keep the pedal depressed. If so you have a Idle Air Control valve issue. If it wont run at all it may be a bad fuel pump
