SOURCE: O2 sensor problem

I have a 97 gmc sierra .This truck is the same as the chevy ok.Its a 350 5.7 liter 4x4 Z71.I took it to auto zone which was my first mistake.They put it the scanner and said bad O2 sensor.Ok so which one is it i said.They dont know.Well there four (4) O2 sensors in this truck i hope you know that.I had to replace all four of them before i had to take it to a real shop.It seems the fuel pump i replaced a week earlier with an auto zone fuel pump was bad.Ive changed my feul pump 4 times now and have 235000 miles on still running.You need to get your fuel pressure checked.It should be 65 psi to start it and 55 psi to run it.If the pressures are good it could be a different O2 sensor or maybe the mass air flow senor.My last option would be the fuel pressure regulator because it seems to be a waste of time and money.I would get that fuel pressue checked first.Good luck.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Aveo - engine light and hold lights flash

I also had the same problem, But the problem lies in the switch the actual hold switch on my aveo there is a side entry way you can pop off the one on the left will give you access to the switch. what could of happen is theres is condensation in inside the switch. then when it gets cold it freezes causing the switch to malfunction. This could happen either by spilling something on the switch or using a cleaning solvent like armorall, YOU MUST BE CAREFULL WITH ANYTHING LIQUID NEAR THE HOLD SWITCH. Also the car going from warm when you drive then cold when you park it at night. My car was in warranty and remind you I came up with is the dealership had no idea what was wrong. they reseted the computer it worked for a week then was happening again. I have knoweldge in switches/wiring so i decided to check pot the switch and open it up and sure enough there was condensation took it to dealer told them to try a new switch works perfect and going on 5 months with out problems. Replacing the switch can solve pretty much every problem that is stated here i think. Also take a look at the wiring and connections for older aveos

DTC P1516 Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance

Your vehicle has an electronic throttle body unit so it uses voltage signals to control throttle blade in the throttle body. There are a few different issues that can cause this problem.

First off there is a update for the PCM to address those codes, but you will have to take it to the dealer for that.

Second there is issues with the actuator on the throttle body binding up and causing the codes.

Third there is a yellow wire coming off the throttle body connector that breaks inside internally and cannot be seen to the naked eye. The best way to test that is to grab the wire about 5 inches from the connector and tug if it feels spongy or breaks, that

SOURCE: Reduced power light/ service on 2004 trailblazer

Hi,

Your truck has a system that is called "throttle by wire" installed in it. What this means is that there is no actual throttle cable, the throttle plate is actually opened and closed by the computer. The reduced power light will come on when there is a problem somewhere in this system. If there is a loss of signal from any of the position sensors, the system will go into a reduced power mode and you will have virtually no power at all. Turning the vehicle off and back on will reset the fault until the next time the fault is present. A diagnostic trouble code will also be stored in the computer that will pinpoint where the failure was (or is.)

This is usually caused by a bad Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APP Sensor). It is located on a bracket above the accelerator (gas) pedal.


ACCELERATOR PEDAL POSITION SENSOR VOLTAGE (4.2L)

© 2008 Mitchell Repair Information Co., LLC.

Throttle Position (1) Volts

At Idle

APP Sensor No. 1 Less Than 1.1

APP Sensor No. 2 Greater Than 3.9

Wide Open Throttle

APP Sensor No. 1 Greater Than 2.0

APP Sensor No. 2 Less Than 3.0


(1) Measured at sensor or as seen on scan tool.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Well...my ball park guess on this is just a tune up. The engine light is usually showing a misfire. If the plugs are bad then the cylinder is not igniting the fuel and it is flooding out. With what is here this makes sense to me. Let me know what it does turn out to be.

It might be helpful to know what code or codes are stored in the computer. GM can do this through On Star. I don't suppose you continued your subscribtion? Do you know where you could borrow a code reader? Basic models can be purchased for approx $75. You could check for spark. Pull a spark plug wire off from a spark plug. Push a screwdriver into the boot to the metal connector. Hold the shank of the screwdriver about 1/4" away from a metal engine part. Have someone crank the engine. Spark should jump this gap if it is present. Make sure you are holding onto the screwdriver handle while doing this or you may be in for a nasty suprise. Do you have a propane torch? We use on to introduce raw propane into the intake manifold. If the engine fires when you crank it you know that the engine isn't getting fuel. There's a few things to try. Good luck.

You need to go to Autozone to get your check engine light scanned for a code. It doesn't cost anything. Hopefully, your computer has found your problem. They can tell you why your light is on and tell you what the problem is. This will let you know where to start because they are a few things that can cause your engine to loose power.
