It sounds like your idol is to high on ur vehicle depending on the year u will have a carb orator and there should be an adjustment for your idol ( mainly where your throstle cable hooks up to your carb orator ) but make sure you don't make adjustments your not sure about which can lead to runnin your car too lean or rich.

    There is a knock in that motor, you have a bad coil pack, broken plug, or bad plug wires. Id say a bad coil though the way it is running. Follow plug wires back to where they go onto the 2 coil packs, look for cracks in coils, start car or crank it over at night you will see the sparks arcing from coils or plug wires.

The required fuel pressure is very low,so when you release the gas pedal,fuel pressure drops and it will not remain running without you hitting gas pedal.
I suggest check the fuel pressure first,these will lead towards further troubleshooting:----

Gas pedal issues:------


The fuel pressure and fuel system needs to be inspected.

Try cleaning your MAF (Mass Air Flow ) sensor, when my sensor went bad I couldn't keep the car running and it threw wierd codes on the computer.

SOURCE: car wont stay running unless foot is on the gas

Withoutknowing if the check engine light is on it could be a variety of things including but not limited to the o2 sensor, throttle positioning sensor, and the MAF and MAP sensors. Best diagnosed by using an OBDII scanner to scan for codes. If no codes are present I would then check for the pressure coming from the fuel pump to make sure it is still functioning.

Suspect idle air control valve. Also clean the throttle body. If its gummed up dirty it will restrict air.

SOURCE: i ran out of gas

The fuel pump in this car is electric and is inside the fuel tank, it uses the fuel it sets in for lubrication and for cooling, when u run out of gas this causes the tiny electric pump to severly overheat and many times it ruins the pump, and that is what has happened here, u will need to pull the gas tank and replace the fuel pump. also replace the fuel filter.

Check TPS -Throttle Position Sensor

Test it --not replace-- unless it has failed a test

Also the fuel pump maybe worn out as well

My 1998 dodge caravan won't stay running. starts up but shuts down instantantly or when i take my foot off the gas pedal,


ok i have a 1998 durango with the 5.2L 318 engine. had trouble with a bad cell in my battery. I went out bought an optima red top battery for it 800cca. put it in and had same trouble. No start without putting foot on gas. wouldn't stay running without holding foot on gas. CPU has to relearn it's programming once you unplug it for long periods of time. mine was without power for about 2-3 weeks till i got new battery. Start with this.. first check under air filter make sure a squirrel hasn't made a mess under your air filter and it's clogging the air intake. Then pull off the lid to your injector cover ( the screw down lid coming from the air box ( with air filter in it) to "carb") make sure all your cables move freely. put that all back together and close hood. Start truck with foot slightly on gas pedal to get started. keep it at about 1k to 1500 rpm for about 1-2 minutes. Rev motor to about 2500rpm and let it die out if it will. Get out lock doors with key fob if you have it. if not make sure to lock doors. ( trust me it worked for me) let sit for 5 minutes. come back out and unlock door and relock door 3 times with fob ( if you have it ) or key if you don't have a fob. Then unlock it with the key and enter vehicle. Start truck as before and keep it around 1k to 1500 rpm again for about 30 seconds rev it up and should keep running. Mine did. I think the iac was stuck from sitting and has now since loosened up.
Good luck hope ti works for you.

Car won't stay running


Have your fuel pressure checked sounds like it might be a clogged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump.If its not within the specs then replace the pump.If the fuel pressure is low i would replace the fuel filter first then the pump if needed.
