SOURCE: 1989 Chevy K2500 - idles fine but stalls out when put into drive.

Sounds like the injectors may be bad or just really dirty. You say that the truck is only used as a plow truck, so I would assume that it sits alot. If you dont add any fuel stabilizer to the tank, the fuel will start to degrade and the will gum up your injectors. One thing you can do is to pull the air cleaner assembly off and look at the injectors while the truck is running. Look at the bottom of the injectors while it is running. The injectors shouldbe spraying fuel with a fan spray of fine mist. If you see any drips of fuel in the this fine mist, that injector is at least dirty or on its way out. I would recommend that you change your fuel filter and then get some fresh fuel and the purchase some Seafoam fuel injector cleaner from your local parts store. Dont mess around with anything else. GET SEAFOAM. If it is in a plastic bottle it is not strong enough to do anything. Seafoam is in a metal can. Dump the seafoam in and run the truck as much as you can. This will help clean out the injectors.

SOURCE: IDLE PROBLEM

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

My 85 chevy truck idles real high when you first start it and after 3 minutes you hit the gas and it will idle down to normal could it be out of timing or is there a fast idle screw. tried nothing yet 1985...


thats the electric choke. It warms up the engine so that it will idle properly. It may be sticking. Personally i hate the things and just remove and just hold my foot on the gas a bit when cold starting.

But check and see that the solenoid is not sticking and that the other valves on the carb are not sticking some wd-40 should help.

Check idle speed and mixture at idle. Often with too fast idle speed, engine will not shut off. Many vehicles had an electric solenoind that released the idle speed to much lower, at key off.

Try pulling the vacuum line off the EGR valve when the engine is warm and idling rough. If the EGR is bad the engine will idle normal once you remove the vacuum line. It will be located on the intake manifold.

adjust your carb, the 2 screws on each side of the carb adjust so you can get the car to idle correctly, also check your distributor

Hesitation , skipping,engine cuts out when accelerating


Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?
