I have seen this problem numerous times. The problem is the Mass Air Fow Meter. It sits on top of the air cleaner bos and tells the ecu how much air is going into the engine. If you have acess to a scanner that can read live data stream you will see that the mass air flow meter is sending readings in-corectly. It is easy to change. 2 screws and un plug the harness. be sure the ignition is off though as you will set a few more codes.

Engine wont stay running

you're running rich, the cylinders get flooded with fuel and won't fire. stepping on the gas blows out the excess fuel. take it to the dealer and have the mixture adjusted.

This sounds like a bad leak at the intake. Have your helper start the car, get it at a low steady rpm and spray a bit of starting fluid to find the exact spot. The engine will pick up. Frankster016

Hi your problem seems very easy :) hope this one work with your envoy. Just buy AC DELCO carburetor tune-up conditioner.

How you use it: engine running , AC off please

1. detached the big black airflow hose which is attached in the mannifold of the engine block.

2. ask your friend to step on the gas pedal and set the rpm steady in 2000 rpm only.

3. then spray vigorously in 8 seconds the inside circle opening of mannifold while your friend steady step on gas pedal with steady 2000 RPM only.

4. after you spray, let your freind continue on gas pedal with 2000 rpm for 15 more seconds.
