A GPS is very reliable, but if you want the speedometer to work, you might just buy a new one on line. You will need to look up your year, make and model of your car/truck to match up the system and size.

SOURCE: 1995 neon stalling intermitinly when deacelerating

Is it stalling at idle, or while driving? Have you performed a Throttle Body Service? The Tps usually wouldn't cause a stalling problem at idle, and it would generally throw a check engine light. The Idle air control valve, on the other hand, could be clogged full of carbon and not allowing any or enough airflow through to the enging. You should remove the throttle body, pull out the idle air control valve, and if it is dirty, clean thoroughly with any throttle body cleaner from a parts store.

SOURCE: 2000 GMC Seirra 2500 4x4 can not get brake disc

There are two 3/8" threaded holes on the face of the rotors (between a couple of the stud holes). Get two 3/8" bolts and tighten them into those holes. The bolts will push the rotors right off. Might have to bash them a bit from the back as well. I didn't have to. This was true on my 2002 2500hd anyway.

SOURCE: cant remove door pannel on driver side 04 gmc

1. Remove the door handle bezel.

2. Insert a flat-bladed tool between the door handle bezel and the trim panel in order to release the handle bezel tab retainers.

3. Remove the door trim panel upper extension.

4. Release the upper extension by pulling outward on the front edge in order to release the upper retainer clips.

5. Remove the upper extension from the trim panel by lifting up and out.

6. Using a suitable flat bladed tool, gently pry the manual lock lever from the door trim panel. Remove the trim panel screw.
*Remove the screw (2) from within the opening where the manual door lock lever resides.
*Remove the screw (3) from the opening in front of the armrest.
*Remove the screw located beneath the map pocket, if equipped.

7. Carefully slide the trim panel up in order to release the retainers from the door. Disconnect the electrical connectors.

Note: the top part of the door panel is not separate from the bottom. The "upper extension" is just the small triangle piece directly behind the mirror on the interior.

Simplified instructions
Remove the bezel around the door handle.
Pry out the manual lock.
Remove the 3 or 4 screws depending on options
Slide the door panel up off of the engagement tabs.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

P1193 error code car wants to stall when stopping and accelerating

P1193 = Detected engine speed below 470 RPM. There are several possible causes/components which can contribute to this drivability issue. ELECTRONIC THROTTLE SYSTEM (ETS). In most cases, an ETS related DTC will set in pairs of codes. The first code denotes the related system or component. The second code is for the specific fault detected.
There was also probably P1191 - limp home

For this issue, on frequent occations I've found the throttle position sensor (TPS) (potentiometer) had bad spots in it and subsequently sending erratice signals to the ETS Control Module (additionally, the throttle body and plate had carbon buildup inteferring with the intake air flow. Also check for air leaks (intake air hoses, vacuum lines & tubes for cracks/leaking). Clean the throttle body & plate. Bench test the TPS. You also have an APS (Accelerator Position Sensor) located on the RH side engine compartment near the firwall next to the strut tower. These are the initial components to check/examine. Replace as needed.

My 2002 sport trac stalls or runs ruff at low rpms, r there any easy fixes?

You might get some relief with a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys. Sometimes the diagnostic computer in your truck will have some info and not set a trouble code.

The usual tuneup stuff like clean oil,air filter,PCV valve, gas filter should be looked at first. Do an intake manifold test with a water bottle. Spray a stream of water around the joints of the intake manifold (with motor running) to find leaks. A leak will change the Rpm or stall it.

Check your sparkplugs for condition or replace them. A dirty EGR valve may not close tight, sometimes taking off the Airhorn and cleaning the intake manifold directly under the airhorn will help. Replace the gasket for the airhorn. Clean EGR opening.

Thats about it for quick cheap fixes. A TPS throttle position sensor is inexpensive and may help if all else fails.

Idle Problem when you slow down of come to a stop idle goes low

THis has happened to me in the past. My fix was to clean the throttle body. The problem began after my battery died. The computer was defaulted back to its original settings after replacing the battery. Once I cleaned the throttle body, everything was fine. This happened at about 85,000 miles.

Stalling issues

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

1998 Cabrio will not idle

I have fixed my problem with my car idling rough and stalling. I took off the intake manifold and all the intake hoses and vacuum lines. I cleaned everything with carb cleaner. I couldn't believe how dirty it was. Especially the plastic vacuum component that went from the valve cover to the intake hose. It was full of oily foam. I also took apart the electronics that control the throttle at idle. I wouldn't recommend this as it is very expensive if you mess something up. You have to file off two tabs to get it open, and I cleaned the contact points and checked the connections inside.

It has been about a month now and the car has been idling great, in fact it is running better than ever. I also found that the number one spark plug was arcing out through a small crack in the rubber boot. I used electrical tape around all the spark plug caps because the wires were only one year old, and apparently I had torn the rubber during re-installation and wires are 100 dollars.

I would highly recommend cleaning the entire intake track off the car to anyone who has this engine! It did wonders for me. I only wish I had done this before I replaced the MAF which cost 150 dollars and didn't fix anything.

On the down side, I now have a problem with my temp sensor or cooling system. :-( VW, not sure they are worth it sometimes. I guess I've had too many Hondas in the past. And I only have 115,000 on the Cabrio. Good luck everyone.

Vw cabrio 1998

I recommend taking apart the intake and cleaning it thouroughly, including the vacuum hoses from the valve cover to the intake hose. I had a very similar problem and it cured mine wonderfully. It took me about 3 hours to dissasemble and clean everything with carb cleaner and re-install it all. For clarity, I took off everything from the airbox to the intake of the engine, including the large aluminum air duct that covers the top of the engine and exposes the spark plugs. Which is a great time to change plugs and wires by the way.

Good luck.

Trouble keeping engine running

I've solved this one by letting the computer do the work. I let the engine run rough at about 1500 rpm until the computer caught up with everything and adjusted either the carb or the timing, now it runs better than it did before!
