SOURCE: chrysler 3.3 vin r v6 mini van, starts then dies

Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.

The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.

NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.

OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.
Thank you.

SOURCE: The engine shut down while on stop and go traffic. Tried to restart but the throttle was weak and shut down again. After shutting everything down for 5 minutes, restarted the engine. The throttle w

If the car is having trouble maintaining idle (the tach dips and car dies) the common causes are the idle control valve and camshaft position sensors. The cam sensors failing will be indicated by a check engine light.

The ICV can removed and cleaned with good results (I think there is a write up on bimmerfest) or purchased new for about $100.

While you are in there check the intake boot that is Y shaped for cracks, it's prone to fail and will mess up your idle too.

Does it sound like the fuel pump or a sensor?


A bad sensor should throw a CEL/SES light, while fuel pumps don't throw codes(usually).

When engine is running it sounds like a air leak around the throttle body. Changed the throttle body gasket and it still does it. It also has no power when you press on the gas.


Sounds like there may be a vacuum leak. You may be able to pin-point it listening through an old, wiped clean of course, radiator hose, small length of old garden hose. Good luck.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Sounds like it may be the fuel pump relay, when it gets hot it doesn't want to work properly. However; I would also check for a vacuum leak around the intake manifold. I would also check the throttle body seal between the intake manifold and the throttle bod itself, this can cause the exact condition you've decribe. Hope this helps you get started looking in the right direction.

1997 suzuki sidekick 1.6 liter runs like 20 minutes then dies. like its not getting gas. wont start till cools down again . any help much appreciated :)


not too cool kick
is check engine light on, at key on and goes out after running?

you forgot to say, does it restart instantly after it dies.
and does it stink of raw gas after or make black smoke.?

when it dies, can you keep it going with a fast right foot>
if it dont start , right after did you try the secret
unflood mode (wide open throttle)

if car wont start , try test fuel
best is instant start in a can (spray)

key test here is car flooding or is it starving for fuel.
those are the top Suzuki tricks.

Truck idle


Hey, increasing your idle may not be the problem but here's how to do it, on the top and middle of the engine you'll see a plastic throttle body cover, pop that off, you'll see a spring with a throttle adjustment screw, give the spring and throttle arm a spray of WD-40, then slowly turn the screw while idling. I dont know if you've checked the basics yet, but it could also be something fairly simple like your spark plugs, plug wires, ignition coil, distributor cap, or even a badly clogged air filter. Good luck
