Sounds like your idle air control valve is bad.  You can try taking it apart and cleaning it with throttle body cleaner which will help it for a while but in the end you will probably need to replace it anyway.  It is a very easy part to replace as it sits on the throttle body and is held on with 2 screws.  For most cars it is a relatively inexpensive part from AutoZone.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Pontiac firebird 1994 v6 wont turn over unless gas pedal is pressed i just changed fuel filter. what could this be?


When you say won't turn over, do you mean that in order for the starter to engage you must press the gas pedal? Or do you mean that the vehicle will only fire and run once the gas pedal is pressed?

After I know that I can better answer your question

Buick regal 92 3.8L Horrible fuel mileage


Sounds like you might have an oxygen sensor problem. Your catalytic converter(s) maybe defective or dirty. That in turn can dirty up the oxygen sensor. A defective oxygen sensor will send faulty info to the computer, interpreting the fumes as cold (even when the engine warms up). That causes the computer to adjust the fuel mixture to very rich, giving you poor gas mileage and the fuel smell. Hope it helps.

Car wont go


check the fuel filter. If it is clogged it will do just as you are saying. has enough presure to run car however when you press gas the filter isnt letting full pressure go through filter because it is clogged. If any questions email me. Good luck. Change filter.

2000 toyota tacoma 2.4l wont start when cold


clogged injectors you need to put cleaner in the fuel to help get dirt and grit out of them some times (every 3 months).
I am assuming you are saying it will turn over but not fire and run when cold?

Just a thought, have you checked yout TPS(throttle position sensor)? I had similar problems with my 89 GMC Jimmy 4.3l, however a code 44 is strange. Also check to see if your problems go away if you advance the timing a few degree's.

Hope this helps
