A code checker tool will tell you some, can be checked without having to move the truck. Sounds like an unhappy computer.

SOURCE: engine start-stop push button not working

The vehicle should still be under warranty. Either way it is your best bet to take the vehicle to your local dealer. They will be able to diagnose your problem properly. With newer technologies like push button start their are only more issues that can arise. If you need help locating your nearest dealership I would be glad to assist you further. If you have a moment please accept and rate my solution accordingly.

SOURCE: automatic transmission shifting problems

20 year old vacuum hoses are done. Replace all you can. The little plastic ones too. They control everything, transmission, computer, fuel, brakes, everything.

SOURCE: engine wont idle unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal

First, try a new accelerator pump. They're less than $10 and easy to install. On the side of the carburator, near the linkage. It's simple a small rubber diaphragm.

Peugeot 206 stalling, either cuts off or I floor the gas pedal


When you "floor the gas pedal" the computor goes into a bypass mode (emergency mode). This honestly sounds a lot like a problem I ran into a while back on a Dodge truck. Problem was a cracked intake manifold (plastic). Short version: vacuum leak.

I installed new intake monifold gaskets because the bottom one was sucking air in and my 1996 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine would run at 2300 RPM'S. After changing the gaskets the car is hard to start...


Take it to bits again and check the gasket you put on and all the other gaskets as it still sounds like you have air sucking and a blockage somewhere else so check out all parts you done and the parts you dident

No passing gear


My car did (past tense) the same thing. The service engine light is flashing until you let off the gas because raw fuel is being dumped into the catalytic converter. The transmission won't shift because the converter is plugged. When you push the pedal to the floor the transmission computer holds the transmission in gear. Meanwhile the engine computer is raising the rpms. It will seem like a transmission problem but it is more likely a plugged catalytic converter. I had converter changed. The engine has A LOT more power, great acceleration and the transmission shifts perfectly.
