Question about GMC Canyon
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

tork converter is locking out see if you can unplug it as a quick fix it will be a round plug on the training should fix the problem but remember its only temporary as to you will lose overdrive and kill gas mileage by 5-6 miles a gallon but it wont damage anything

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!

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

does it have spark? you did verify fuel pump working properly? could it have a clogged converter? is the engine lite 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.
