I'd check my spark plugs if I were you. They're not under a lot of pressure when the engine is idling however, when you rev it they have to work a lot harder and this is where the fault may lay.

If they are good, then check the HT leads. It definitely sounds like something to do with the ignition timing

I have a chevy s10 2.2 2003 truck and one day it ran about five miles. then stalled. it started back up idled fine but put it in gear. stalled again. had to get towed home replaced the fuel filter,truck...


When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

MY 2000 BMW 318I SE IS NOT ACCELERATING PROPERLY WHEN STARTING FROM COLD I PUT MY FOOT DOWN BUT THE CAR JUST JUDDERS ALONG IF I STOP AND REV THE ENGINE PAST 5000 IT THEN SEEMS OK AFTER ALSO THE EMISSION...


There isn't a car out there that likes to be put in drive as soon as it is started. Mine especialy. I give it at least 30 seconds to warm while I am adjusting evrything and away I go. Runs like a champ. Let it warm up for a couple of minutes from a cold start.

Another place to look is your IAC, or Idle air control valve. It is bolted to the back of the intake manifold, and can be removed and cleaned. It is usually the cause of most Honda Idle problems.
