Question about 1999 GMC Safari

1 Answer

99' GMC van "sputters" or stalls around 2k RPM

So the van starts and runs fine. But when I start to accelerate the engine starts to stall and will sputter like its not getting enough fuel or air. What I suspect is the issue the fuel filter and or Fuel injection system. Now what I have researched it looks like the fuel pressure regulator is a common part to fail. Thanks in advance!

Usually the failure of the regulator results in a fuel leak either externally where it would be seen or internally where the engine wouldn't run. If the filter hasn't been changed in a while it should be changed. Also, the spark might be bouncing around the wires or cap. I've even seen it bounce out of the coil. That would sound like a clicking noise.

It sounds to me like your idle relief valve is malfunctioning. This little device pictured below does a lot of good things but is a pain when not functioning.

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,
