WHAT IS A PVC HOSE IN MAZDA MPV


The PCV is a valve and a hose, that sucks engine ring bypass gasses and reburns them. if it plugs up the engine leaks oil.

if the hose cracks it sucks air and the AFR goes lean and bucks.

jerks.

only on engines (unstated) that use a MAF sensor.

engine that use a MAP sensor ,race too fast with full power and no jerk with air leaks.

next time post engine type. as we can not guess this.



the list.....



2.0 L FS-DE I4 (99-02)

2.3 L L3-VE I4 (02-05)

2.5 L GY-DE V6 (99-01)

2.5 L AJ V6 (99-02)

3.0 L AJ V6 (02-06)

2.0 L RF MZR common rail turbodiesel









WHAT ENGINE PLEASE.

if unsure, (why fix any engine,if unsure>)but in the USA

the hood EPA sticker states this clearly.

I have a 1998 Chevy lumina 3.1 that when you started it starts at idling in the red zone if you try and t hich the gas it automatically kills the engine so it doesn't blow up


You have a Vacuum Leak that is sucking in AIR and that is causing the Increased RPM.

Does it slow down after it warms up?

I once had a Idle Air Control that was causing it on a 3.1 and when I replaced it, the Idle went back to normal....

99 4 runner v6 The engine pulsates at idle and during acceleration ,It goes up and down about 100 RPM and you can feel it under acceleration. what could be the cause?


If this a petrol engine, you have an air leak some where on the intake manifold. Test with soapy water and a paint brush whilst engine is running at idle. check all connections to the manifold and when soapy water gets sucked away, you have identified your leak. Start with the air cleaner and work along system back to the manifold.

1999 chevy silverado 5.3 starts then dies out


check to see if you can hear a loud sucking sound (air) going into the throttle body when the engine starts then dies. if you hear alot of air being sucked into the throttle body, replace the Coolant Temperature sensor located close to the thermostat housing on top of the intake manifold. If this $12.00 part goes bad, it will cause the same symptom you have described. You can check the sensor for correct reading by using a scan-tool.

1996 Chevy Lumina Sedan Whining noise from engine


The pattern you describe is consistent with an alternator going bad. Maybe the fields are already rubbing together. Test it this way: Start the car and leave on idle, when the whine is worse, then start using up electricity, by increasing the demand. Turn on AC, then lights, then full blower and then high beams. If there is a change in the whine, then either alternator or voltage regulator is the culprit. When a compressor pulley bearing is bad, noise shifts just by turning AC on and off.

99 buick regal 3.8 starts for 3 seconds and shuts down,


Had the same problem drove me nuts until I tried disconnecting Mass Air Flow Sensor, the car should drive normally but with a "Service Engine Soon Light" on. Mass air flow can run from $140 up, picked one up at recycler for $40.

Worth a try.

Have you checked that the airfilter isn't blocked or damp? What about water in the carb?
