Question about GMC Canyon

1 Answer

Stalls and stops

My 2010 GMC Canyon has begun to stall on start up at lights and stop signs. It cranks right back up but has nearly caused numerous accidents. It's been doing this now for 2 months. At first we thought we may have gotten bad gas so we added a fuel cleaner and bought better gas next two or three tanks with no improvement. It only has 29,000 miles on it and all the routine maintenance is completely up to date. There are no warning/ maint. lights displaying. Any ideas?

Check your fuel pressure you could have a leak and your loosing pressure when you take your foot off the accelerate or peddle if it starts hard after stall suspect pressure regulator leak or bad vacuum or injection leak inside manifold

SOURCE: Stalling when letting up on gas

I just had the same problem with my 2001 Escape- replaced the fuel filter, no help. Turns out I needed to replace the idle air valve. It took 5 minutes, and I'm back up and running!

SOURCE: engine intermittently stumbles and stalls after taking off from stop

Take carborator cleaner. First take off the big hose on the front of your intake then press gas peddal to open up and then spray it inside this fixed my problem. Jerry

SOURCE: No check engine light on

You didn't say how much fuel is in the tank when this happens. Some of these old GM cars will starve for fuel if the tank is near empty and you are braking or stopping with the car facing downhill. It could be rust or scale in the fuel tank clogging the screen around the fuel pump inlet. Sometimes, putting cleaner in the tank of an older car will only cause more debris to loosen up from the inside of the tank and make the problem worse. If the problem gets worse, I would guess tht a new fuel pump/sloat assembly is in order. You may have to have the tank removed and cleaned or replacedd with a new one to prevent the problem from reocurring.

2005 gmc envoy, while at idle or driving under 25 my car will shut down, the dealer can't find anything wrong . doenst happen all the time but does do it. I was on interstate and traffic was at about 25-30...


GM used an automatic starting function on the envoys. The engine cranking after you let go of the key is normal operation. Under normal conditions you wouldn't notice it, but because the engine is not starting up immediately, it continues to crank in attempt to start the engine.
As far as the engine stalling goes, some basics that come to mind for the envoy are:
1) Is the throttle body dirty? A dirty throttle body can cause stalling at lower engine speeds.
2) Is there a vacuum leak at the engine? A vacuum leak can also cause stalling at lower engine speeds, depending on the severity of the vacuum leak.
3) Has anyone checked the fuel pressure? A fuel pump that's on it's way out can also cause stalling problems.

Sounds like this thing needs some quality diagnosis by a good driveability technician :)

Truck dies when i stop or slow down


this may be the cause, try it and see if it helps, it is a very common cause of problems like yours.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk 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.
