Question about 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Can't keep my Escalade running

I have a 2000 Escalade that I can't keep running. It spits and sputters, and just when I think it will clear up it dies.
I've changed the fuel filter, fuel pump and played musical o2 sensors.
Do you have any idea what could be causing this?

Have you checked the EGR Valve. Does it miss at idle or all the time?
A stuck "open" EGR Valve will make it hard to start and it will miss at idle.
It might also set your Check Engine light and give you a code P0404.

2004 nissan titan = starts and runs fine for a while - and then spits and sputters and wont run for a while - then runs fine for a while - then spits , sputters, and wont run any...

Not sure to be honest as to what the cause could be ,i would suspect a coil pack problem or even the ignition module if it has one but i think it may be built into the ECU ,although you havent stated if this is a diesel engined vehicle so having more information would help a great deal

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all filters & fluids? Especially fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.

To much air. check the idle air control motor and the egr valve. if you have them. don't know what year you have.

My timing belt broke on my 1997 Dodge Stratus, 2.4. Is it a for sure thing that the valves are bent? How do I change the belt and check to see if the valves are bent? many thanks, NC

mine broke on my 2000 and i lucked out, the top end was unharmed. the cheapest route is to have someone change the timing belt, fire it up and see if it runs. it will spit and sputter at first while adjusting the timing, but after a few minutes it will clear up. if it runs like ****, your valves are shot. the 2.4 is a non interference motor, so it's the luck of the irish on your side.
