Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi ive changed fuel filter, dropped tank, checked spark and changed egr valve as a result of stalling it wont start after all work ive done im about to change timing chain but every piston seems to fire after cleaning spark plug it started but ran but sounded carbon up from trying to start it so much and being flooded backfiring. wont start again and am changing plugs and gonna scan it as it initially had p0440 code which was egr valve. didnt work after that must be to carbon up im thinking. hope you have solution.

Compression, spark , timing , fuel for any engine to run. Don't forget a stopped up catalytic convertor will have the same effect as you described. Backfiring of course is fouled plugs, bad plug wires, look for arcing from wires when it is dark outside. If it has a distributor check for cracked cap, had my 91 GMC start backfiring then die due to ignition module inside distributor going bad. It would start back up after it cooled for about 10 minutes.

sounds like the timing belt it has a interference engine so if the timing belt broke you could have bent rods and cracked pistons or worse. good luck

DEFINITELY change the filter...It's only about ten times past its useful life. Then check fuel pump, pump relay and fuse. (doubt if you'll have to!!)

maybe your iac valve is not working? it takes place of a choke or temp sender to computer could be bad which controls t I.A.C. known as the idle control valve,do you have any codes?

My 88 raider did the same thing. As long as I had my foot on the gas pedal it would run but if I lifted off the gas it would die. It ended up being a vacuum line. I can't remember which one (possibly the AAP) but not sure. I did replace the AAP diaphragm and all of my vacuum lines.
