if its throttle body, give it a good cleaning with carb cleaner while its running and hold open the throttle so it wont die. also I would check out the TPS (throttle position sensor) pretty cheap fix.

Hold gas pedal down start car


If this has a carburetor, look at the Power valve that is connected to the throttle lever. It is a small plate in front of the carb with a lever that moves with the throttle. There is a small rubber valve inside which allows gas to flow between chambers.

Another possibility is the fuel pump. After that, a bad Vacuum leak like from a ruptured EGR diaphragm can cause these problems.

Idels to high when running


I am going to assume this is a full size Bronco with a 4.9 or 5.0 engine.
The computer controls the idle speed by the amount of air allowed into the intake thru the idle air control valve.
If the throttle body is dirty or the valve fails, or if you have a serious vac leak, the engine RPM will be higher than normal.

1990 full size blazer starts fine idles then dies


sounds real easy either a bad idle air control solenoid or more likley a blown throttle body gasket. to test fro a blown gasket, with engine running and cool spray carb cleaner or brake cleaner around base of tb were it bolts to intake. when it hits the bad area, should idle down and be normal for a second or 2. iac is possible,try this first since its so common and let me know

I just had the same issue with my 88 xlt w/351 W it wound up being the MAP sensor and the timing. I would check both of these and see if it solves your issue.

I am assuming it is a carburated engine. Sounds like the accelerator pump is not pushing the extra fuel when required as the accelerator is depressed. Time to rebuild the carb. The kit will contain a new accelerator pump. Look for a tag on top of the card with numbers and letters on it. It will let the parts house you go to know what specific carb is on the vehicle so you can get the correct rebuild kit. Good luck.
