SOURCE: Car wont stay running unless foot is on the gas pedal

is the CEL check engine light out running? (it comes on stalled, and is normal that)
stalled. engine stall. no year, now that makes this 10x impossible
and even more impossible no engine stated, (displacement or VIN)
F22? 2.3. 2.7? 3.0L?
if in usa, (no loctation stated ) open hood, look up, see tag?
see vacuum EPA map, see engine type? bingo.

so I wall answer in the generic, (ALL CARS gasoline)
fails hot or cold engine, does hot engine reach 180F and hold?
wow, how low was the oil, off end of stick, none?
stalling is caused by over 50+ things. (we do tests to find it fast )
we use tools, do you have tools, or can buy them, or do you just want
endless guessing. here is the path.
#1 stall maker is a stuck open EGR main valve, ignored during the turn up, clean it. make sure it close
in the macro,
1: bad engine, the hot engine can lose compression and stall.
tool1 the $20buck compression guage.
2: bad spark, or timed wrong. gapped plugs wrong, wrong plugs used. bad wires sets, (old dizzy engines) bad COPS newer cars.
check for hot spark at all spark plugs, skip none.
3: bad fueling (too much or not enough
if engine runs perfect and only idle is too low 800 hot is normal
no DTC 300s misfires, then maybe the ISC is just dirty.
we clean the EGR and ISC every time.
if the EGR leaks, the fast right foot can save a stall but is hard.
if the ISC sticks closed, saving the stall is piece of cake, super easy
after all , you are adding the missing air.

does that help,. no, then take it top the man, the ASE man.
The Mechanic.with the ASE patch on his /her sleeve.
no year, ouch.

Car drives good but high rpm at 60 mph rpm is like 3000


Does your car have an overdrive or economy mode? 3000 is about right if you're going uphill at 60, your car is under heavy load or your not in overdrive. It could also be that your car hasn't shifted up to the next gear. On many automatics you can stomp on the gas pedal twice quickly, all the way to the floor, and that will make it up shift. Try that to see if that lowers the rpm's and gets it to shift up. If your car still wont up shift check the transmission fluid level with the car warmed up and running.

Idle high in park


May either be a sticky throttle linkage requiring lubrication, or the TPS (throttle position sensor).

Cruising rpm even after the OD has engaged has a lot to do with the differential gear ratio and tire size.
There will always be a variation between different vehichles due to that alone.
To see if the OD is working, at about 50mph, lightly touch the brake pedal. If the rpms increase for a moment then the OD was engaged. (touching the pedal momentarily disengages it...good thing to know when hill climbing!

My transmission wont shift after second gear or inany other gear and drives in park plus my cables are streached tv and shiftin cable would i need to rebuild


Not completely sure but I had a similar problem on an older ford. There was a high rmp shifting cable that came off the engine to the transmission. It was binding up and after second gear there was nothing and the gas pedel became stiff. After ordering new bushings for that rod, things were fine. This may not be any help, but just something to maybe look for.

Wont shift past 2nd


Find your throttle valve cable attached up near cable from throttle pedal ,it's the one that runs down behind toward transmission. With engine off in park,park brake on, Have someone push gas pedal to the floor & observe that cable, to make sure it is retracting properly when pedal released. Now get under & watch where that cable attaches & watch it while doing the same with gas pedal. The lever that it attaches to should move freely & rotate one way when gas pedal pushed, and should return all the way the other way when pedal released. Sometimes that linkage or cable will get seized, and not return fully, which will hold transmission in lower gear. You can use your hand to make sure it is returning all the way if necessary, and if needed, apply penetrating spray to loosen it up, then apply something like white lithium grease to coat it after it's unseized, to prevent repeat in near future.

Suburban wont go into gear


check to see if your brake lights are working.there is a safety system that wont allow you to shift from park unless you push the brake pedal........most of these systems utilize the brake light switch for this........if your brake lights dont work it is most likely a blown fuse.
hope this helps....
