1995 Chevy G20 stalls.

It will idle, but as soon as I put it in gear it dies. I have changed plugs, throttle position sensor, O2 sensor, checked for leaks, checked timing, rplaced fuel filter, but nothing seems to work. Need my van for work. Need a solution quick.

Not sure if this will help. I have seen this happen!!! remove the cover under the steering column and locate the ignition switch. Get a flash light. You really need a flash light to see this. Set the E-Brake real good. While watching the ignition switch. (actual SWITCH not where the Key goes) . Turn the key back and forth with out starting and see if the switch is loose. (it has 2 hex head screws in it ) and is like 4 inches long with a bunch of wires in it and mounted the passenger side of the column under dash. If you cant see it move then try removing it from park and see if it moves. The switch is mounted on slotted holes. and if it is loose it will only move with the legnth of the column or front to back of vehicle. any ways if it is loose there is a way to put it back right ... as fallows:
key needs to be in the off position. loosen screws 1/2 turn each,
use your finger to push the switch up towards the key but not force it. like pushing a key on a key board. Tighten both screws and check it out. This seems like a long process to go through but it costs nothing but time.

When start high idle put foot on break to put in gear then stalls


Doubt it's the O2 sensor.More likely an issue with your IAC(Idle Air Control) motor.Quite often they get plugged up with carbon and stick in position.

When it stops running and will not start back up, you'll need to figure out if you are lacking spark or fuel pressure to proceed with testing.

check for o2 sensors, maf sensor, throttle position sensor(check them phisically and with a n OBD scanner). if they are ok check for vacuum leaks on intake manifolt by sprayin some brake pad cleaner to intake manifold. if soudn of engine changes you have a vacuum leak.

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. When the engine is cold the leak is there but as the engine warms up the parts start to expand thus closing the gaps and sealing the leak. I had this problem on my personal vehicle and it turned out to be lower intake gaskets.

it might be the ECU, when cold the computer raises the iddle to warm it up, when reaches temp., it dropes it down to normal iddle, but it might not know where the correct iddle is, it might be another sensor like a cam, map, throttle position senssor.

Runs rough till warmed up. Hesitates. I put a new


Ok, you got new 02 sensors, that is good, Now check timing, vacuum hoses for leaks, check for headgasket leak with compression test, Check or change fuel filter and plug wires. If fuel injected, try using injector cleaner and you can also remove one injector at a time to make sure it is not leaking or plugged. You can also test throttle position sensor and idle position sensor with an ohmmeter to see if they are good.

1992 gmc chevy 350 wont idle when warm


This could be a number of things but i think that your problem sounds like a vacuum leak or an EGR problem. Try listening for leaks and try un-plugging the EGR solenoid valve one time.
