Slow start, low rpm, backfires and shuts off

Car didn't start before because it didn't have spark, changed the dizzy, got spark again, but when it starts it's really low rpm, i have to keep the gas pedal pressed and when i'm pressing it starts backfiring, if i let go of the pedal the car shuts off.

You must RUN the scanner/computer, you can have the manufacturer specification wrong.
The electronic vehicle is complicated, by that reason you can have wrong tune up, PCM+BCM+sensor+ignition coil faulty ,etc
see the diagram attached.

SOURCE: Transmission problem

If the S light is blinking, this indicates that there is an electrical problem somewhere it the TCM circuit. I have included a link that takes you to an excellent page which shows you how to read the codes and what they mean.
http://home.earthlink.net/~michaelpkeefe/HowTo_Codes.htm
Also, The top solenoids are for the lockup clutch and the bottom ones are the shift solenoids.
As for the Immobilizer causing problems, if it was incorrectly wired to the TCM, then it could possibly cause a problem.

SOURCE: 1999 honda accord idle problem:

Is the engine light on, if so have them read? Take a look the charging system (see if it is above 13volts and below 16volts), see if the gas cap is on firmly and the o-ring on it is in good shape, look at the cars maintenance history and see how long its been since the last complete tune-up. If there are no codes recorded then it would probably be a mechanical issue, Look at coils, fuel pressure, timing, and injectors. If you need more specific info, just let me know, Good luck.

It was missin now wont start


must be 90s week?
no starts, but cranks fully and full crank speed, which is near 300 rpm, called robust cranking but notarts.
its flooded.
(compression not above150PSI) means the timing belt has slipped.
and will never run right again, ever do the 60k tuneup yet.
if not , why not?
flooding.? so many way to flood.
1: spark plug tips x4 all wet with fuel.
use the cracking (wide open throttle like the op.guide shows)
this cuts all fuel, (EFI)
2: no spark, check spark x4 and if all 4 are dead, try the coil.
if the coil is dead, no spark there, then the dizzy is toast.
90 cars are a stand alone dizzy, meaning ECU is not doing this.
3: Flooding can be caused by other things.
see em all here.
over 28 ways !
but there are only really 3 ways.
1: bad engine (60k tuneup skipped.)
2: bad spark
3: bad fueling.

it is one of those,
there are 2 exceptions.
1: EGR main stuck open. (this kills fueling to start and low rpm)
2: CAT melted (this kills an engine, it cant pump air. )

Suzuki wagon r+gl check engine light keeps flashing and wont start after battery change


the engine (there are more than one engine)
has a distributor.
"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

Car runs good for a bit then dies when i slow down and have to start again


If it's carburettor engine then you might have a speck of dirt or water in the idling jet. A quick way to clear it is to swap over 2 or 3 ht (spark plug) leads and let it backfire a bit. Just remember which leads you swapped over.......

I have a 1994 Honda Prelude Si non v-tech i recently changed distributor and spark plugs. Before i changed sparks car was running rough it had a lag to take off and sometimes lost power while at around...


Sounds like the catalitic converter/s are clogged up. This would cause low air flow and low compression. I've seen them so bad that they dropped the compression down to 60 lbs.
