The usual problems with this car are; the inertia (rollover) switch this is located behind the trunk liner on the left side of the trunk reset the button or, replace the switch; also this car is notorious for the "thin film ignition" module on the side of the distributor it overheats and the flexible circuitboard inside cracks and, causes the car to stall intermittantly

I HAVE A 1991 CHEVRLLET LUMINA 3.1L V6 MULTI PORT FI, IT WILL START AND IDLE BUT WHEN I GO TO ACCELLRATE IT STALL'S, I HAVE CHANGED THE, MAP SENSOR,CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR, FUEL PUMP, FUEL REGULATOR,...


Possibly the throttle position sensor. Or maybe you are having a problem with the fuel injectors. I would have the fuel pressure checked for proper pressure-that's the point of replacing the pump: proper pressure is critical for good driveability. Replacement pumps, particularly aftermarket, can sometimes not perform adequately.

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

1989 toyota supra hesitates and won't start


If Engine Starts with accelerator pedal depressed , check idle speed control valve (if equipped) and wiring connection. Did you check for vacuum leaks. Do you know if your ignition timing is correct? How did you check your fuel pump? I take it no codes have been set, so if not there are several things to check for when the engine stalls #1 is to check cold start injector and cold start injector time switch. If engine stalls sometimes- check airflow meter and connectors You can tap the connector or relay or wiggle and notice if there is a slight change in the engine idle.
