Have you checked the spark plug leads, disy cap and rotor. Does that model have points. Have you checked the coil. Some golfs have a rubber mount for the carby that splits and sucks air in. Have you changed the fuel filter. Is the air filter really dirty

SOURCE: 1999 Z24 runs rough when warm

Buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze.... the coil would have been my first suggestion... but it sounds like you have water in your gas as well.... gas line antifreeze is alcohol (not the kind you drink) it sucks up water tho.

SOURCE: high idle will not lower

sounds like you have something blocking the linkage or the throttle body isn't closing totally or you have a air leak.

I've got a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee with the 5.2 v8 fuel injected Holley throttle body. My problem is while driving at soft or low acceleration it accelerates fine, but if you hit the throttle hard it


I would check the voltage on the throttle portion sensor with the engine off from idle to wide open throttle.If there are any dead spots, replace the sensor. If the tps checks out, you should check fuel pressure. If you have good fuel pressure, you may want to make sure there isn't a lot of slack in your timing chain. I don't believe you mentioned the mileage of your vehicle. Best of luck.

Is it a twin cam? often one of the cams can be out by one tooth and the engine can idle fine and miss when throttle is applied

1963 vw newly rebuilt engine, starts then dies at RPM acceleration


Could be one or both of two things.

1. The accelerator pump in the carb is clogged, the linkage is unhooked, or the diaphram in the pump is bad. It's cheap to replace and comes in the carb rebuild kit. This usually just causes hesitation when you step on the gas pedal. It doesn't usually cause the engine to stop running.

2. More likely is that the main jet in the carb is clogged. At idle, high vacuum under the closed throttle plate in the carb causes fuel to flow thru the idle jet. As the throttle plate opens (as you step on the pedal), the vacuum under the plate dissipates, stopping the flow of fuel thru the idle jet, and the vacuum ABOVE the throttle plate increases, which is supposed to then draw fuel from the carb bowl thru the main jet in the carb. If the main jet is clogged with dirt, then it can idle just fine and die as soon as you step on the pedal.

I have a 1995 chevy lumina 3.1 and upon starting the engine will either hesitate and die or it will idle and when i press the accelerator it hesitates and then the engine dies...what could this be?


you need a tune up...plugs, possible wires too, they might have a lot of carbon tracking deposits on them ...clean (IAC) sensor, if you"ve never cleaned it, believe me it"ll be dirty.. and then make sure you completely clean you throttle body too inside and out! but wait an hour after before starting to let it air dry...clean air filter or replace it, and replace fuel filter if it hasn"t been replace in a long time. also after you"ve done this purchase a can of Sea Foam fuel system cleaner $10 and pour 1/2 can into 1/2 tank of gas and drive around even if its running "a little rough", for about 30 minutes and this should clean out any fuel injectors that may be possibly clogged up! if you you cant drive the car but will idle only after cleaning (idle air control), pour some seafoam in the tank and let it idle for about ten minutes then try to see if it will run. If none of this works then you probably have a fuel pump not putting out the correct pressure!

Jeep wrangler 2.5. Motor idles up and down,


check the throttle possioning sensor on the throttle body that can cause alot of things

That would be your Accelerator pump diaphragm (part of a tune-up kit). It is a (roughly) square diaphragm that goes under the pump cover (four screws with a pivoting rod that controls the diaphragm) which is located on the right-hand side of the bottom portion (looking at the carb from the rear of the car) of all the Solex PICT carbs.
Kits are available from www.mamotorworks.com for around $15.00.
Hope this helps you.

I have a hesitation problem when I first apply


Throttle Position Sensor possibility,find someone with a scanner and check for codes.Located on the your throttle body.Oppasite side of the accelerator cables is a shaft that goes thru your throttle body and connects to the TPS.Rough idle but evens out when you increase engine RPMs.

Perfect Idle, no Codes, but stepping on gas causes hesitation


i would try cleaning mass air sensor, its mounted in air duct between air filter and throttle body, they sell the cleaner at auto parts stores, also as stated bofore make sure the intake pipe clamps are tight and it's not cracked, if that doen't fix it i would investigate a fuel pressure problem either a weak pump or problem with regulator
