This sounds to be a problem with the ignition module. The module might produce a fairly nice spark at an idle, but at higher rpm's the spark should intensify, if it doesn't then the car will not run at a higher rpm.

check the water pump gasket and timing chain gasket for leaks. You should take it and have a coolant pressure test done to quickly determine the source of your problem.

SOURCE: white smoke comes out of exshaust

white smoke is an indicator of coolant leaking into the combustion, so a leak down test

SOURCE: my 1.8 20v turbo has no power but builds up

Check fuel system. Leaks,Dirty filter can cause this
condition. You could have gotten a tank full of bad fuel. If this is the case ,you must drain all fuel and dispose of it properly. Change the fuel filter AGAIN.
This should keep you busy this weekend.

OH, by the way you may have to replace the Turbo!!

Why does my 2004 buick rendezvous idle at 3000 rpm and put in gear it drops to 1500 rpm and shifts hard while driving due to high engine speed?


Stuck throttle plate . gummed up with varnish or a problem with IAC valve . IAC - idle air control valve ! Videos on youtube , how they work how to clean . Idle Air Control Valve Could have unmetered air entering the engine pass the MAF sensor , a bad MAP sensor ! I would check the throttle plate first , if dirty clean it . Then check IAC valve if not the throttle plate . GM Idle Air Control IAC Function Diagnostics and Repair

Where is the air control sensor in a 2001 oldsmobile silhouette?


It's called IAC - idle air control valve > Did the RPM'S stay at 2000 or drop back down ? The PCM engine computer controls IAC valve according to engine load . Put it in gear , turn on electrical loads , headlamps , A/C etc... an the RPM raise's up so engine will not stall . More then likely the throttle plate needs to be cleaned , they get gummed up an stick at higher idle . Quick Tip Throttle Cleaning EricTheCarGuy If the IAC valve were gummed up the idle would be low or erratic . On some engines a vacuum leak will cause high idle . Videos on youtube checking for vacuum leaks .

Hi ,bought a fuel injector from eBay and I'm not sure it's the right one for my fiat coupe 20 v turbo ,are the injectors for a fiat coupe 20v non turbo the same ?


Turbo and non turbo are not the same...check the serial numbers against one another, if you install one wrong injector you will damage your engine completely!
ask the agents nicely if they can compare before replacement! Good luck cheers Dave

2002 jeep liberty 3.7L engine miss on 2 cylinders engine revs to 2800 rpm and shuts down comes back on at 2300 rpm and repeats.


stalls?
ok stalls are complex. there are over 50 causes.
no , im no listing them..sorry.
ill not tell you to read a book, but they do tell you how to diagnose all engines. made... no kidding.
so what is it.
so the CEL did not come on as the engine SHUTS DOWN.
then that means it never fully stalled. (a key fact)
but was the throttle dead, at the SHUT DOWN? key fact 2.
if the throttle is dead, at stall.
then that is the ASD relay cutting out.
if you had scanned it at the stall it be obvious with DTC's stating that fact. in fact 8 reason there are for that.
if not asd drop this try this.
1: lost spark, never tuned up in 10 years, so spark ends.
2: lost of fuel pressure.
there is my guess, 3 things. (i skipped bad engine, (loss of compression hot)

Got P03xx codes, DTC errors. that be top of list
here is the ASD list

fixing stalls with no scan tool is like juggling blind.....
buy one or rent one.?

Car stalls whether its hot or cold when the throttle is flicked down or you rev up and leave it to drop revs then it stalls.


Is the engine idle just set a bit low anyway? Can you access the idle adjustment and turn it up a tad? The sluggish drive may be in need of an engine service but a 1.3 is small for this car. Check out online car owner forums to see if others think so to.

run fault codes and look for accelerator position sensor fault . Check for MAP/MAF sensors as well

Swirl control valve vacuum check switch


sounds to me like something besides the throttle is opening up in the intake manifold-the fuel could be shutting off also causing a lean situation-nasty little cars-I hate cars that don't preform properly-when it stalls does anything smell hot-cheers Denny

Idle problem integra


check the MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure). The ECM (car computer) uses that to keep idle at minimum 750 RPM. It's normal for it to run high when cold. These small 4 banger motors typically run hot, and they won't run right IF they're NOT running hot, ergo the idle is usually high when it is cold so as to cause it to warm up quicker. If the RPM's drop below 750, suspect the MAP sensor, &/or ECM.

89 cutlass cierra crank but wont start when wet out unless gas pedal is pushed


This should be a drive by wire vehicle meaning it has a cable for the throttle body. First thing would be to see if any error codes can be pulled up (most parts stores will do that for free.) Drive by wire versus the late model that use electronic control for the idle have a IAC or idle air control which when first started controls the idle air intake--all air is run by it to idle the vehicle when cold--

Usual symptoms are rather high idle when cold engine or even idle and RPM jumping up and down and stalling when cold.

Another way if idle does drop when cold is tapping the gas--engine will still run until hot. Means not usually a fuel pump issue.

You could also have if the vehicle is fuel injected a dirty Mass air flow sensor, a throttle position sensor, etc.

These can be if the vehicle has them cleaned using a special zero residue spray cleaner.

First have it scanned to see what if any errors it shows--the computer.
