Hi

You need to get two things checked. Ignition and Fuel.

Ignition: typically in this order ... Start off from sparking plugs ,,, move to leads (get them changed) and on to the ignition coil if there is no spark coming out of it. In case of fuel, the carb needs a clean and a good carb cleaner or fuel treatment (added to the fuel tank) wont do any harm. You should open up the carb filter. Remove it and change it if its dirty. Start the engine rev it up and while its revved up (throttle flap open) spray the carb cleaner or in this will clean the carb cleaner from inside. If the power gradually increases its a clear sign that you need to open up the carb and get the jets cleaned. properly.

Hope that this fixya will get you on the roads soon :)

Regards :)

Do you notice it dieing in a certain place? Like in a hilly area or on inclines? I recently had a similar problem on my motorhome. I seemed to run fine on the flats or downhill, but when I went to climb a hill, it would die. It ended up being a weak fuel pump, water in the fuel and a clogged fuel filter. So I replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter and put two cans of heat in the fuel tank (75 gallon tank) and it ran great the rest of the way home.

Engine tune complete..map ,iac,tps relaced..start car,put in gear,give it gas ,the car dies ..even in park, you push the gas and the car stalls


Cold starts and untill engine reaches operating temp, The coolant and intake air temp adjust the fuel like the choke in older vehicles. The MassAir Flow sensor adjusts the fuel by measuring the velocity and density of the intake air for proper air/ fuel ration. The MAF can be cleaned with CRC electrical spray cleaner, Do not rub or brush this sensor. It is as expensive as it is fragile. Spray was it as thoroughly as possible. The spray evaps fast so no compressed air. It is located in the intake ducting in a metal section of tubing. make sure your air filter is clean and leak free. Good Luck....Ned

Sounds like a faulty sensor. Have you changed your fuel filter? Checked all vacuum lines? Any check engine light on?
