SOURCE: 1997 dodge dakota v6 engine wont start replaced

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.

fuel pump is working but when accelerating it doesnt pump enough fuel up to the engine then it will fall on its face if it is a electric pump you may have to drop the tank if it is inside and replace it if it is on the engine replace it thats what is exactly wrong with it

SOURCE: 96 lexus ls400. Car idles to high and sounds

The first thing I would do is remove the hose connected to the intake and see if there isa lot of blackish brown buildup on the plate, if there is you need to buy some top engine cleaner and with a tooth brush clean the throttle plate on the back side and also the pipe that it sits in. Over time Gum builds up from back fires that you can't feel and causes the plate to open up and gradually will cause this problem.
Check this first and if you find that it is dirty then let me know and I will tell you how to do a top engine clean to get it running better, I do this in a order that won't cost you as much. If there is build up in the engine it will also cause the engine not to get good fuel mileage. Check this first and let me know so I can help you save money, you can do the top engine clean yourself. As far as sensors go I do the simplest things first before moving on to the sensors.

How many o2 sensors do I have on a 1993 gmc seirra

I believe the 93 Sierra has only one O2 sensor. It is in the manifold on the drivers side. This assumes the 5.7L motor.

Where is the aic on a 94 sierra

Its located right on the throttle body. If your talking about the air intake temp sensor, thats mounted by the air filter or in the plastic tube that goes off the throttle body to the air box, its a 2 wire hook up. The idle air control "iac" is located on the throttle body side. "iac" idle air control. "ait" is air intake temp. 2 totally diff sensors.

My 96 nissan altima dies at idle

Could be a dirty throttle body, vac leak, or a defective idle air control valve. The computer adjusts idle speed by controlling the amount of air entering the throttle body via the control valve.
Is the check engine light on ?

I just got done replacing the power steering motor on my 2003 GMC Seirra 1500, After I got done bleeding the lines i took it out for a test drive but everytime i put it in gear it idles down extremely low...

If you disconnected the battery,the computer needs to relearn the idle profile. This may take a bit of driving.Also,make sure the air intake piping is properly secured to the throttle body and Mass airflow sensor at the filter housing and not allowing the engine to **** in any false air past the MAF

near the throttle body part there is a electronic idle control valve either this control valve is defect or there is a leak between the body and the valve.
