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

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Wont Idle, does run but only if you hold your foot on the gas pedle.


it may just need some carb cleaner put into the fule tank or you may need to bring up the tick over speed to stop it stalling on you

Have you checked your fuel pressure at the fuel rail? The problem could be a clogged fuel filter, pinched fuel line, or under-performing fuel pump (either faulty part, or not receiving enough voltage).

The only other thing I can think of that would cause the loss of power symptom and failing e-test would be a plugged catalytic converter, but that wouldn't likely cause the lean running.

Clutch pedle stays down.


Hello;
It sounds as the pressure plate diaphragm has given up on you. From the sounds of your post, you will need to replace the clutch assembly. Also check the clutch cable for binding and chaffing. Hope this helps and rate me high.
Thanks;

Clutch pedle stays down


if you have a hydralic clutch usually the pedal staying on the floor indicates air in the clutch lines. if so check 4 leaks at the filler and at the slave cylinder. however just bleeding the clutch system may temporarily fix your issue
