SOURCE: engine wants to die and idles rough when slowing down and you can smell gas

the throttle body is probably gummed up. You need to buy some throttle body intake cleaner and clean the throttle body. After you've cleaned it up, recconnect the battery and it should reprogram the engine's idle and your problem should be solved. It's pretty easy.

HAVE YOU HAD YOU THROTTLE BODY AND OR YOUR CAM SHAFT SENSOR CHECKED OR YOUR AIR TEMP SENSOR ? IT MOST LIKELY SOUNDS LIKE YOUR AIR TEMP SENSOR IS'NT LETTING ENOUGH AIR IN OR OPENING YOUR MASS AIR FLAP ENOUGH WHEN ITS COLD OUT CAUSING THIS.

Fuel pump relay is just above the brake booster, change your spark plugs and wires. Check crank sensor. And reset and re scan your car. Code 12. Means ur computer is scanning well. You have to wait . Each code flashes three times. 12 x 3 then all trouble codes x 3 each. Then 12 x 3 again. To conclude scan

2004 chevy cavalier wi'll not start unless I keep my foot on gas. Then it will start but won't stay running until it warms up. While driving it runs fine untill you brare then it stalls out.


Pressing the pedal down, puts in clear flood mode. Any applicable trouble codes? Did you use a gage and check correct fuel pressure, also, see if pressure will hold for a bit, with everything off. If it drops like a rock you have fuel leak. Pull vac line off fuel pressure regulator, where applicable, if fuel runs out, you have a faulty fuel pressure regulator. You could have fuel injector leak?
Smell of your crankcase oil dipstick, if it smells like gas, either you don't change your oil and filter very often or fuel leak. There could be other issues? You have to start testing, somewhere.

JUST REPLACED CARB ON MY 1992 CHEVY SILVERADO WITH A 4.3 LITER. NOW IT STARTS AND RUNS FINE UNTIL IT WARMS UP THEN DIES AND WONT START FOR 30 MIN


How many rpm's is it running at when you first start it up and it is running on the choke? Does it gradually start to idle back and then start to die r does it do it all of a sudden and dies?

When running with the choke on, it is on the high idle circuit of the carb, as it warms up the idle should slow down and then idle in the 800 rpm range in Park, 650 in Drive. This will be the low idle circuit range. This transition inside the carb will cover an idle air bleed hole in the venturi of the carb and lean out the mixture. If you notice that the carb smells gassy and black rich unburnt gases are coming from the tailpipe, the problem is located within the carb and requires a carb tech to do a rebuild of the carb. You could try a good carb cleaner like Lucas by putting it into the gas tank, in case you just got a bad tank of gas, but that is just a bandaid for a more deeply rooted problem. Get the carb rebuilt?

1990 Chevy Van with a 350 small block that has a mind of it's own.


Try to get it running a bit to warm up the exhaust. Take a point and shoot thermometer and take the temp of the cat. If temps exceed 400 degrees I would start to suspect a plugged cat.

hey that sounds familiar!have you checked your idle control sensor? let me tell you 1st you crank it cold,you have to keep your foot on the gas pedal until it warms up.but then when you come up to red light quick stop,the engine dies or wants to stop? sometimes it starts fine? but when it does,after running for a few minutes,it idles up and down? when it's warm after driving 15miles or so,you shut it off and try a restart,and the engine starts,but idles up and down? all of the above are signs of a bad idle control sensor.the part costs about $20.00 u.s. 2bolts removal 1 PLUG IN REMOVAL you may be able to do it yourself.have an autozone or advance autoparts store employee show you where it's located.you would be shocked at how many great people there are left in the world! i'm answering your question for free at midnight from the u.s. think i'm bored? no. just love helping people like you! thank you so much!

thats because the car is not at operating temperature.you will get a slight drop in power and drivability until its warm.do not try to use any more than 1/3rd gas pedal until its warm anyway.your car has an automatic cold start device (choke)that operates when the car is cold.

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?
