Is it a raw gas smell? If so then there is a fuel leak (and a fire hazard). Is the check engine light on? If it is from the exhaust, but not fully burned (extremely rich) then there are a number of possibilities. If it running that rich, the check engine light should be on and a scan tool could help in the diagnosis.

Hi Monkeypaint!
I assume you have power brakes and I gather that it idles properly at times, but dies when the brakes are applied. This sound like a leaking power brake assist vacuum line or diaphram. You can verify this by locating the big vacuum hose connecting the intake manifold to the assist diaphram. This will be about an inch in diameter connected to the round item behind the brake master cylinder next to the firewall.

  1. Disconnect the line at the intake manifold end, and plug the vacuum port on the manifold with a tapered rubber stopper or cap.
  2. Being aware that you now do NOT have power assist to the brakes (requiring CONSIDERABLY more pedal pressure to stop!!!), see if the problem goes away. If it does, you have narrowed it down to the assist diaphram or the hose. If it still persists, it is an engine tuning/control issue, not related to brakes.
  3. Do determine whether it is the vacuum hose or the cannister, remove the previously installed cap/plug, reinstall the hose to the intake manifold, disconnect it from the diaphram and plug/cap the hose at that end. Repeat step three... if the problem returns, the hose is leaking and should be replaced... If the problem still goes away, the Power Brake Assist Diaphram Cannister is leaking excessively and should be replaced.
  • ***ALSO*** Any other vacuum lines leaking can lower the manifold vacuum to a threshold level where the load of power brake assist actuation crosses the line for adequate vacuum to idle*** So check all vacuum lines underhood, looking for a pronounced hissing at vacuum leaks. A manifold vacuum gauge is a relatively inexpensive diagnostic tool that could also be useful.
Well, hope this helps, and good luck! Don't forget to rate this answer!
Thanks!

SOURCE: 92 dodge 318 truck engine runs til you stop, then stalls when put

Then i think i'd be dumping some soapy water on the intake gaskets checking for leaks. ANd wiggle the **** out of all vacuum hoses. ( you probably did that) And if there aren't any, your cam could be tired. You got a tough one there. Hard to figure with a keyboard.

I'd like to get step to step instructions on how to clean the throttle body in my 2010 Jeep Patriot


  1. Purchase "02 Sensor Safe" throttle body cleaner spray;
  2. Drive the vehicle a few miles, bringing it to full operating temperature, then park it in your driveway with the engine still running;
  3. Gain access to the throttle body, and hold your thumb on the butterfly linkage so that you can open the throttle butterfly when the engine begins to load;
  4. Begin by spraying throttle body cleaner spray on all linkages around the throttle body. If the engine begins to bog because it is aspirating throttle body cleaner, quickly open the throttle butterfly to keep the engine running.
  5. Once you have cleaned all around the throttle body, spray cleaner DIRECTLY INTO THE THROTTLE BODY, opening the throttle sufficiently to keep the engine running. It will run rough during this process but try not to let the engine stall.
  6. If the engine stalls, restart it, and continue cleaning the throttle throat until you see clean metal.
  7. Pour some fuel system cleaner into the gas tank and drive the car a little more before parking it. Try to find an excuse to accelerate hard, WIDE OPEN THROTTLE momentarily if safely possible (as when accelerating to merge into traffic on a highway).
  8. Drive back home.
  9. Done.

Lpg converted engine wont run using lpg without gasoline in tank


It is normal. All LPG converted engines start with gasoline. Then when they reach 2000 rpm move on LPG system.
If you want to start directly with LPG must call a professional to modify your installation.

wow, no year , no jeep model or even an engine size stated.
cause is first. price is last. always.
stalls.
there are 50 ways to stall. (i can list them but is just a waste)
if you dont know how to do the tests, that leaves only 2 choices.
1: tow it in for diagnosis.
2: or get a house call,$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

since this forum can't do 1 or 2, that leaves , advice.
A: ever do a 60k tune up on this, engine in the last decade?
B: when running does the CEL lamp glow? , not stalled.
C: when it does stall and engine hits zero RPM is the CEL glowing (it must)
D: when it stalls are all cluster lights on and bright , per normal?
E: when it stalls does the dash voltmeter stay above 12v? or near.
if no dash meter , then connect a meter to the CIG lighter port
and watch voltage there at the stall.

CEL means check engine light.

that stall is from gross misfire. of the engine.
my guess.
bad spark
bad fueling
there are tests for each but im not typing 10 pages to say.

Engine stalling


The sulfur smell is usually low grade gas or a problem with the catalytic converter.
In your case I would go for bad gas, especially if the problem just started happening recently. You can try adding premium to the tank and drive it out. You may have to replace the fuel filter once or twice if the gas has water or other contamination.

2002 Malibu stalls while driving, doesn't over heat. But can start smelling gas fumes before it stalls. usually wait about 5 mins then restarts. in higher elevation runs fine but in lower elevatio


It sounds like the catalytic converter could possibly be almost completely plugged up not allowing the exhaust to leave the engine like it should. It just builds up in the cylinder head and when it gets too much in it built up and there's no where to go, it'll stall the engine. By letting it sit for a few minutes, it gives the exhaust time to find a way out and the car will restart.

Your fuel filter is probably plugged - change out the fuel filter. The location of the filter depends of which motor your truck has and the type of fuel injection system - a throttle body system typically has a fuel filter mounted into the throttle body whereas a multiport usually has the filter mounted to the frame rail, close to under the drivers seat. Determine which configuration you have and go buy the filter - this will help you to determine where it is and what it looks like.
Hope this helps!!

91 Maxima Gasoline odor when I first start the car


If it is running fine, the busted bolt isn't the source of the gasoline smell. The intake manifold has vacuum, so the smell wouldn't be getting out, air would be going in, and a vacuum leak would give you poor idling. The exhaust manifold wouldn't have much raw gasoline smell. But it would have loud noise if the broken bolt were causing an exhaust leak.

Check that the vapor recovery line is not broken or disconnected. The hose connectors get cracked. If that were broken, it would cause a gasoline smell after the car has been sitting, especially if it has been sitting in the sun, heat driving gasoline vapor out of the tank. It is supposed to condense in the vapor canister, but some escapes if the line is broken. If it is broken, driving would **** out the gasoline from the line and the wind would dissipate the smell.

Or it could be a leaking injector. With the injector cover off, engine idling and cool, you can visually look for raw gas around the injectors and injector rail connections.

Hope this helps.
