Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500

2 Answers

I have a 1993 Suburban that hesitates under acceleration when it reaches operating temp. It almost feeling like it is missing or running rich. I have replaced virtually the entire fuel system, EGR valve, plugs, wires, cap and rotor and rebuilt the fuel regulator. ???? Could it be the coil?

Yes a coil could cause your problem . on the dist dose it have a vacuumn advances unit? if it dose take volt ohm meter and hook it up in series with the pick up coil take a hand vacuumn pump and pump 14 inches your ohm meter should be 1000x scale your reading should 900 to 800 ohms steady . now crank the mtr over if there any change by more than a 100 ohms i would look at the pick up coil pull the dist see how much play you have good luck kdc744

I know this sounds off the wall But, Try it. Replace your Fuel Cap. It sounds like you are sucking air into the Fuel tank. This will cause it too miss Everytime.

My truck is a 95 chevy silverado 1500 it cuts off in 1st gear

Does it seem like when the engine is cold it runs ok, then when it reaches operating temp. it starts acting up? (poor acceleration, stalling) When I had that problem w/ my 93 K1500, it ended up being my oxygen sensor. (causing too rich of a mixture in the throttle body)
Hope this helps, Good luck

I have a 1993 chevy suburban and just replaced the thermostat, because addmissions wants the surburan to run no higher than 160f . Well the thermostat works but dosen't kick in untill it reaches 2

you will be hard pressed to get a thermostat that opens at160F as that is 71 C and most thermostats have an opening temp of 80 C (175 F) to 85 c which is 185F
at a temp of 220F which is 104.4 C your engine is near boiling
it indicates that the thermostat has been incorrectly fitted in that the bulb or major part is not in the head or block water but in the hose section
go to the dealer spares and see what the temp range is on a new thermostat but I doubt that the manufacturer will get a special thermostat as they use generic items from thermostat manufacturers put in expensive packaging

My 93 plym voyager, 3.0 has a hesitation when

if your having cold engine start hesitation,you need to check the engine temp switch,it tells the computer how cold it is,so the engine can adjust to a rich start and not a lean one.if the switch is faulty and the computer is being told it is 80degrees,you will not get a rich mixture like no choke at all

Truck misses under acceleration after it's warmed up.

that is a tricky one you have almost replaced everything. that is fuel injected if you dont have the right fuel pressure when you step on the gas it will fall on its face you need to take a fuel pressure reading and also it could be as simple as the fuel filter which is often over looked it could be cloged restricting the flow. also check the MAP sensor

On a cold start my 2002 estate 2.4 gdi missfires.

Since you vehicle is 7 years old. The temperature is due for a change.

the temp sensor give the exact engine block temperature information to the computer (ECU).

An old sensor or sensor giving incorrect temp to the ECU will cause this problem.

The correct term is call close loop. When the engine at start up the computer will only count on the temp sensor to report temp.

When temp is reaching 195F,the mode change to open loop. All sensors comes into play and at the point the fuel inject will scale down for the warm up state.

Running rich condition can be cause by an old temp. sensor.

Change the sensor and the RICH condition after warm up will go away.

3.4L engine stall at stops

do u have a check engine light coming on? if not the plugs are not the problem a miss will trigger a check engine/service engine soon light, most likely you have a dirty automatic idle speed control motor.

Very bad idol and run condition.

sounds like a possible water temp issue... check your thermostat and/or water temp sensor. when you first start your engine the computer uses the water temp reading to do a 'cold start' scenario, more fuel. once you reach normal operating temp the fuel should be cut back. if the thermostat is not opening and closing properly this can cause strange readings from the water temp sensor (which is mounted near the thermostat)... unlikely the sensor is bad, but a possibility... more likely the thermostat.

Runs rich, loads up, hesitation

It could be several things but most of the time with these its a faulty EGR valve that causes the off idle sputter. You can take a piece of tin soda can and bolt it between the valve and intake. If the probelm goes away then the EGR valve is at fault.
