Question about 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis

2 Answers

92 Grand Marquis chugs and dies when at an idle. Also jerks alot

This problem has been going on for awhile. The car jerks while driving no matter what speed we are going. If I am at a stop light it dies. Before dying it starts chugging really bad. The spark plugs, wires, Map Sensor and one of the coils has been replaced. What can be the problem? Also, the fuel pump was replaced within the past year.

The throttle speed control valve must be cleaned. The valve is located near the throttle body throat. It has an oval flange with two bolts. Unplug it, take it off and clean it out with throttle body cleaner. You will notice a big difference. This is a common issue with this engine.

Have you replaced the air filter and PCV valve ? Check the IAC (idle air control valve) located at the fuel system . Where you look into the hole going to the fuel side. remove the air duct work. and see if you can see 2 holes at the side. The IAC is located at the outside of those holes.Sometimes cleaning the IAC will get rid of the problem. If not. the fuel pressure regulator may be the problem.

92 buick century when i start it up the idol goes way high like its going to blow put in drive it jerks and eats alot of gas


more then likely it is the IAC thats bad. clean or replace the IAC. more causes are--- erratic idle (including high idle speeds) can be caused by a faulty throttle position sensor (TPS) - a common problem. and check for a bad vacuum hose also. good-day ! clean IAC first ! to see if this helps then go from there.
