Question about 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1 Answer

Stuttering and hesitation in my idle and when i begin to accelera

If the motor is idleing it stutters and acts like it wants to die sometimes it will die on me if i let it idle for about 5-10 minutes. Then when i am in drive its fine but when i am accelerating the motor stutters and hesitates, unless i really give it some gas then it will get up and go. I cant pass emissions either if that helps to diagnos the problem.Im thinking it might be the oxygen censor because that is what people have said so far, what do you guys think ?

The truck is cutting out has no power dying when you stop wont idle right after it gets warm and won't idle at all

Not sure what you are working on, but it sounds like your coolant temperature sender is bad. When the truck is supposed to come out of phase lock loop it is not and is acting like the choke is on all of the time.

Engine dies when idling seems like electrical problem. wait a couple of minutes with key off, starts right up.

re-tune the idle mixture setting
check for vacuum leaks at the auto transmission actuator , vent controls
raise the idle rpms to around 650

Motor low idle problems

You need a carburator adjustment. I'm guessing it is a 302cid? It's burning too lean

My car stutters for then it is ok on till i turn it off for a while then turn it on again the same thing happens

Hello and welcome to Fixya!
I suspect that you have a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor. The MAF controls the vacuum supply of the car and if there's irregularity on vacuum supply the car will surely stutter.
You may check the IACV (idle air control valve) too. If it's clogged with dirt, air won't pass that's why it stutters. Try to clean it with a carburetor cleaner. If cleaned and still acts up, have it replaced to resolve the issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Idles rough and acts like its going to die then revs up....acts like its not getting gas sometimes....when under pressure the air blows out of the defrost instead of the panel

you have a vacuum problem, I would have the intake gasket checked or you can spray carb/choke cleaner around the intake where it meets the heads and if the rpm of the motor reacts then you have a leak, my explorer was the same way, idle raised and lowered,idled rough, stalled, and my vents acting up. new intake gaskets a month ago and wham runs great. My yukon i did 2 days ago as it had the same actions and yep it runs great now. I'm sure its your intake.

I have a 1997 Ford Escort Wagon and I don't have a problem while I am driving, but when I slow up to a stop. The motor will come to a rough idle when I stop and sometimes the motor will die. I can restart...

try this test
place in neutral with the park brake on
start the engine if it idles alright put your foot on the brake
if it falters or plays up ,it is a vacuum leak in the brake booster
replace the booster

My 4runner has a low idle, and sometimes dies while idling, but starts right back up with no problem. there also seems to be a miss when i accelerate, but i dont have any idea what could be causing it. but...

You need a tune up, if that doesn't fix it then have the injectors checked, and if thats not it, then have the fuel-pump checked. It has to be one of those.
