PVC simply recycles the blow by gases. You have either blown a fuse, or your fuel pump is not delivering gas to the motor.

Cruise control, 1992 Chevrolet K1500 pickup truck.


Terrible news for you, you may have already figured out.
These accessories are in the category of : " Be thankful it lasted this long " !
Now, about a fix.
Here are some of the things that have caused my cruise to stop working.
Check these out on yours.
1) The engine mounts got loose, affecting the adjustment of the cruise control to the throttle body.
2) The cruise throttle body got loose on the inner fender due to loose screws or out-of-adjustment brackets.
3) The brake pedal switch got loose and caused the cruise to think you were pressing the brake when you weren't.
4) The drive shaft sensor/magnet fell off because of old age. (The glue failed)
God bless your efforts.

Cruise control is not working


Cruise control directly control the electronic throttle body.Since version is electromechanical ,throttle pedal is directly connected to the throttle body through a cable and cruise control is achieved by way of a servomotor that sucks in that cable and holds it in place.First you have to inspect the electrical switches and clear it.You should also check fuses related to the system anf if you have multimeter check that wiring also.

My speedommeter doesn't work but my cruise control does. Is it cable driven or electric?


Your speedometer is most likely electric (magnet) drive off of either your drive shaft or a wheel sensor. You cruise control is cable driven by a solenoid that adjusts the cable and throttle body like it would if you were pushing or releasing the gas.

My quad 4 always runs like it is cruise mode always goes into passing gear mode at 60mph uphill down hill and on straight road disconnected the cruise but it still is not running right whats up? does the...


There is a cable that goes from your throttle body to the transmission.This is called the throttle valve adjuster cable.It has either come out of adjustment or is bad.You need to go to someone that knows how to adjust this and your problem should go away.There is a special adjustment procedure so you can`t just move it to where ever you want.This controls when you vehicle will up shift or down shift depending on the input from the gas pedal.So have someone that knows transmissions help you or take it to a reputable shop and get it fixed.It is not that big of a job.Hope this helps.Good luck.

What could be wrong with my cruise control? The dash light comes on but it wont set when I press the button to hold speed.


ok under the hood on your throttle body there is 2 sets of cables attaching to it the one closest to the throttle body connects to you gas pedal and the one next to that connects to your cruise chances are that it popped off or the cable broke chase the cable back to the control box if there is no breakage then you main cont box went out and should be replaced to locate you throttle body follow the tube from your air cleaner that tube connects the throttle body the cables are right next to that

Cruise control 2000 jeep grand cherokee


insufficient info. The cruise control has a cable that runs from the servo, located just in front of the battery, to just behind the air intake, to the throttle body. (This is on the 4.7L V8 engine.) Check for that cable being connected at the throttle body. That connect is adjacent to the accelerator cable.
