Did you disconnect the battery when you installed it so the computer could see the new part? Next was the rod sticking out or retracted? It should have been retracted. Disconnect the vacuum hose going to the brakes and the engine will speed up reconnect hose the engine will slow down and then level off if not you have a wiring problem. There are many sensors that control it throttle position sensor, crankshaft sensor,coolant temp sensor, brakes and air conditioning when used

When you changed the fuel pump i presume that you put fresh gas in it ?. buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it soaks up water)... change the fuel filter as it is likely gumned up with fuel. after you have done this keep up with the pouring fuel in or get a can of "hard start" and be very careful with using it. Eventually it will run on it's own. I would also suggest getting a can of combustion chamber cleaner. nasty stuff but it will clean out the motor and should unstick any valves that are not closing properly. be very certain you use that outside as it does create alot of smoke. I would also presume as it has been sitting that long that you have drained and replaced the oil as well as the filter.
For a vehicle that has sat that long there will be a lot of condensation issues.

sounds like its not getting enough of fuel. check or replace fuel filter. this will cause vehicle to die out at stops because when you come to a stop. the dirt settles to bottom of filter, and then its like it chokes out the fuel supply. Hope this helps! the reason it runs in netural, is because the engine is not under load.

The IAC (Idle air control) is mounted on the throttle body,Your PCM uses this device to control idle speed to compensate for engine load, before you decide to replace it try a throttle body cleaning,(just follow direction on the product you decide to use).

Check the fuel filter on car for a restriction. Check the air filter for a restriction(dirty). also check the IAC valve (idle/air/control) located on the side of the throttle body. To check the iac valve, start the engine and disconnect the electrical plug from the iac. Listen for a change in the idle of the engine. then reconnect the plug to the iac valve and turn on the a/c and listen for the engine idle speed to change. If not then replace the iac valve. Hope this will help you.

Start with replacing the fuel filter. The Aveo fuel filter is located passenger-side rear, in front of the rear tire.

If there is no filter there, then the filter is a non serviceable filter and is integrated with the fuel sending unit. Your going to have to replace the fuel sending unit if the fuel pressure is slow, start with running fuel injector cleaner through the fuel system for the next few fill up's and hope that will clear up the issues your having.

The other thing to is that your IAC (idle air control) valve may be dirty and is stuck close, you can try cleaning it by spraying Throttle body cleaner through the throttle body, paying attention to the IAC passageway. A dirty of faulty EGR valve will also do the same thing.

Start with the simple and inspect to see if you do have a external fuel filter, and inspect the wire leads to the IAC, EGR and clean them with throttle body cleaner. Don't forget to run the fuel injector cleaner through your gas tank.

Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.

Check the IAC valve (idle air control) might be dirty and sticking. Remove air intake hose to engine, spray throttle body cleaner in upper right opening in throttle body to clean, also spray all areas of throttle body while opening and closing butterfly, then start truck and spray IAC valve and openings while running. If that does not work replace the IAC valve with new one.

Problem with idle


Check your Idle air control (IAC) valve wire leads. It's located on the throttle body, the other thing to is it may be dirty and will need to be cleaned with throttle body cleaner. That is just simple cleaning out the throttle body through out, paying attention to the IAC passage way in the throttle body intake. Once you cleaned out the carbon that should help your idle problem, the other thing that would cause this a dirty EGR valve and it's stuck. The EGR can also be cleaned with Throttle body cleaner by removing it and reinstalling it once all the carbon has been cleaned out. replacing the fuel filter also would not help and that is located in the inside frame rail under the drivers side and takes about 20 min to replace. Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter and clean and inspect the IAC at the throttle body. Good luck and keep me posted.

1994 gmc pickup- starts but when you put it in gear it dies, give it gas it will run but not good


It sound like your idle air control (IAC) valve is dirty and the fuel injectors. Try cleaning the throttle body and IAC with throttle body cleaner, if it's really bad you may have to use two cans of throttle body cleaner to make sure you have all of the carbon and varnish cleaned out. If this does not help, then there is a good chance that the IAC has gone bad and needs to be replaced but also check the wire harness to the IAC and TPS on the throttle body. Good luck and hope this helps and it would not hurt to replace the fuel filter also.
