It maybe a vacuum line so check all of those to make sure one is not loose or off and put some STP gas treatment in the fuel tank make sure it has at least a half a tank of gas and if the STP helps then replace your fuel filter

The truck is cutting out has no power dying when you stop wont idle right after it gets warm and won't idle at all


Not sure what you are working on, but it sounds like your coolant temperature sender is bad. When the truck is supposed to come out of phase lock loop it is not and is acting like the choke is on all of the time.

How to test the EGR valve for proper functioning


Your symptoms do not sound like an EGR issue (but could be if only slightly dirty and stuck) but rather could be a bad coolant temp sensor,which is much easier to replace. It can be tested also, but most are so cheap I just replace them. This part acts like a choke on old carb engines and can fail such that kind of like a stuck on choke.

In cold weather, my car is slow to start and has stalled a few times. What should I check?


You don't say what make of car but it's about the same for all. Your problem is the choke adjustment. The choke raises the idle when the car is cold and after warm up drops to normal. You are doing the chokes job when you hold the pedal down, once its warmed up the choke no longer functions till cold again. So check the choke and the high idle speed adjustment. Simple fix. Hope this helps mike

Choke problems


I take it that you have a carby in which case adjust the choke cover so that the cam engages the throttle lever and holds the throttle open until the bi-spring in the choke cover moves enough to move the cam out of the away allowing normal idle. If you have efi (Not from your choke word) then run fault codes and see which sensor is faulty. There should be an idle speed around 1200 RPM idle in efi for around 3 minutes and then the idle should drop back.

Jeep grand cherokee choking problem after a few minutes.


Check your idle air control valve. Sounds as though it may be the problem. The other item could be the TPS, but I doubt it because it would idle poorly all the time even after warming up.

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....


Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

if it sits there and seems to rev up and down, it is probably your throttle position sensor. Mine acted up very bad, expecially when leaving the highway back into city driving when at a stop sign.
