Check plugs or coil pack first. Check pcv hose for crack or evap leak.

SOURCE: 92 probe, problems keeping running.

Vary likely its the Altinator. Ask a mechanic but I really do think you should look into the Altinator there not to hard to get out of probes so it shouldnt be to sticky of a job either.

SOURCE: car dies when accelerate. do i need new fuel pump?

Hello;
It sounds from your description that the fuel pump is weak. To check the fuel pressure you need a fuel pressure test gauge for fuel injection. Attach the gauge to the test port schrader valve and turn the ignition to the on position. Record the reading. Now start the engine and record that reading. Unplug the pressure regulator vacuum line and record the reading.
The pump should have pressure with in specs but if low, start with the installation of a new complete pump. It is located in the fuel tank. Also replace your fuel filter.
Hope this helps you.
Thanks;

SOURCE: Starts at high rev and then dies

Hello, I would check your air flow control valve and that should be behind your throttlebody. Autozone can also check your engine codes for you for free. If you have any other questions you can email me and I hope you have good luck with this.

Car cuts off in drive like it is not getting any gas but in park it is getting plenty of gas


This sound like a fuel pump problem to me. I had the same problem. It would idle and rev fine but as soon as in gear or hav load to pull it will just die or struggle to stay alive. Done a fuel pump change and problem solved.

Starts then dies immediatly


try giving a little gas when starting. If you get it to rev up and the only problem it dies with your foot off the gas then clean the throttle body. It may or may not help. Then replace the idle air control valve.

Mass air and throttle position


sounds to me like your having a air leak... my hose on my tahoe had a tiny pin leak in it and it did the same thing... check the small hose that goes from the air filter to the head of the motor... that was where mine was if not, check your o2 censor...
