I had this problem with my cavlier either check the vaccum hose going to the throttle body and check the TPS ( throttle body position sensor) When standing in the front of the car it is on the right side it will have two screws holding it on they cost about 20-25 new and are not that hard to install let me know if its none of these I have a repair book for this car

SOURCE: I have a 1995 GMC Jimmy,rough idle, carbon smell,

My 94 Jimmy had similar problems, until the dirty EGR valve was replaced. We tried a million things, first. But the improvement with the new EGR valve has HUGE.

Chevy camero 94 v6 No start no crank dashlights up starter no noise its brand. battery new fuel pump im running out of options ,if u can ill take any advise you can give thank you

Definitely sounds like an electrical problem. I would check your fuses and relays. I'm no car expert but I know there are fuses/relays for the starter and ignition. If those are all good, follow/check the wiring from the starter back to the battery. There's probably some kind of ignition control module (icm) also. When mine went out in my Chevy truck it did the same as what you've explained yours is doing or not doing I should say. Good luck!

It has a bad mis and running rich dark foul smelling smoke what's wrong? 1991 chevy v6 s10

possibly a faulty injector for the miss but if you have a head/headgasket problem it would account for the exhaust. Do a compression test and radiator pressure test to eliminate that area of concern

I have a 95 4Runner v6. it smokes alot on start up, after running 5 or 6 min. smoke stops, turn it off, crank it back up, and we`re smoking again?! I DO NOT smell antifreeze burning but it is a very thick...

you arent running valvoline or pensoil are you if you are dump them put castrol 10 w -30w in motor if you still have smoke check your pcv valve truth of the posibility it might just be worn out im talking about light blue oil with regular oil you dont want a high milliage nissan as they basically cannot be rebuilt economically to much work engine swaps ? difficult at best

After sitting a day or two unused the v6 will not start in my van

you may possibly have a bad head gasket filling the cylinders with coolant causing a no start,,,,if you see no leaks externally,check the exhuast smoke when it does run for white smoke and coolant smell out the tail pipe,,,,could also do a cooling system oressure check and maybe then youll see a leak,,,check oil for signs of coolant in it,,

Truck getting too much gas. 94 GMC Sonoma. V6 engine. Black smoke out exaust. Plugs keep fouling out. I Changed everything fuel related plus computer under dash board. Truck not starting now. HELP.

Did you check sensors such as crank senors? cam sensor? knock sensor? or mass air flow? Could all be causing it to get to much fuel. Just had same problem on 1997 Chevy Lumina

Smoke and oil smell at start up sometimes

I have a 1989 chevy silverado. my dad bought it new and never drove it. he wanted to pay it off first. after 5 years it had 15K miles on it. it then smoked everytime he cranked it after it had sit a while. The lack of driving it caused the rubber valve seals to dry rot. so now when it sits, oil seeps down between the valve and the seal and enters the piston chamber. when he cranks it, a poof of blue smoke blows out the exhaust but quickly disappears after the the initial poof of smoke.
this may be your problem also if you have abnormally low milage on the vehicle

Truck won't start

The starter smells awfully bad? If so its toasted & needs replacement. It should be under warranty if you purchased a rebuilt
