Well, 2 things come to mind. (1) There could be a dirty gas filter not letting the engine receive enough gas to idle and certainly not enough to rev to any rpm. (2) Depending on the mileage, the catalytic converter could be partially or completely stopped up, not letting the engine expel exhaust gas and subsequently causing unburned fuel to bog the engine down.Lastly, again depending on mileage, the oxygen sensors could be needing to be replaced because of exhaust fouling. Hope this helps.

    In my past experience the fuel pump was the problem.

How do i ajust the mixture screw on the 1985 nissan 4x4 kingcab pickup


If the engine is not running turn the screw all the way in and then turn it out 2 and half times
Start the engine and turn it in until the revs start to drop.
turn the screw out (keeping a count of the number of turns ) until the revs again drop
Turn the screw in half the number of turns that you screwed it out until the revs started to drop and that will be very close to set. If the idle screw is set so that the engine is idling too low or too high then adjust it in conjunction with the mixture screw anti you get it right

When you smell the strong odor of gasoline and the car runs rough the coolant temperature sensor has failed (no exceptions) The engine is usually slow to start the first time. turn it off and it starts right up next try.

1997 nissan serena diesel 2.0 van it starts and idles, may rev, then engine light comes on and it wont rev ?


If the "engine light" turn on, scanned the computer car in order to know what fault code is stored there, then could start directly with this issue.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

1988 Mercedes Benz 300E 3.0L Gasoline F.I. ''Sputtering at Idle


ok..you must have more than one car???? you don't drive the 300 atall im guessing. #1 start car drive up the road and \back to your house. #2 let it idle till problem starts. #3 once it does start with the problem keep it alive with the gas pedal. #4 once your have it safely from dying in higher rpms "rev it" like a kid would, you know like if you were gonna race some one lol. be careful not to over rev or damage engine. you should do this for five minutes no longer than that. #5 let it idle for another 5 minutes. #6 repeat every day until problem with idling decipates. it took mine 3 300e like 3 days of this. if your not going to drive the car once you get the problem out of the way. turn the car on everyday and let it idle for 5 minutes atleast and take it for a short drive once a week. they get lonelly you know lol. later on you can just turn the car on every 2 -3 days and let it idle but still take it on a short drive atleast once a week
