could be a vacuum leak. When rpms are up, it has enough vac to operate properly. Check all vacuum hoses and make sure they are all on, and look for splits or cracks in the hoses

SOURCE: Car idles erratically-surges and revs up and down

1.Verify that the cooling system is full of coolant and there is no air in it. 2. Remove the air boot from the throttle body and cover the throttle body with something that will stop the airflow . the Fast Idle Valve is the problem.

Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.

2004 bug engine surging


The issue may be the EGR valve. Sometimes the valve can test out OK with a vacuum pump but can still cause issues with surging. Is this happening between a quarter and half throttle? The reason you wont notice it before it warms up is because the ECM doesnt activate the EGR valve when it is cold. One temporary test you could do is unplug the EGR valve and try and drive the car once it is warmed up. If this stops the surging this is the issue. One other issue could be your Fuel pressure regulator. Your fuel pressure could be low from this and it will cause your fuel injectors not to be able to vaporizefuel as much causing the bucking feeling. Keep me posted. If you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance.

Thanks - Tech101

It sounds like the fuel is gelled, is it cold where you are and what are running for fuel? If your in freezing weather you should be running blended fuel, straight No.2 will gel at about 25 degrees (F). Take a hair dryer or heat gun and warm the fuel filter up. Or if you can get in warm garage and get it started thin the diesel with kerosene, about 2 gallons to 20 gallons of diesel. Then drive it for at least five miles so the kerosene gets circulated through the system. I've used gasoline to do this too, but only use about 1 gallon to 20 gallons of diesel.

The engine is spluttering and it seems the more i put fy foot harder on the gas pedal it seems to die over that if i just let it idle. I thought it was a alternator but the lights are on etc. It feels like...


I know this sounds silly but check the air filter for blockage/dirt. If a engine runs fine at idle then wants to 'bog' down at anything above idle it possibly could not be getting enough air.

The "lift off and it goes away" is the clue I feel. This eliminates engine out of balance issues and points squarely to fueling issues. I would say try a compression test (always a good first start before you try much else) but with plenty of power and no vibration except in the range, probably not a compression issue. So, what's left? Fuel or air is the answer. Check air inlet path is from air filter to turbo and (more importantly) from turbo to intake manifold. Check wastegate on turbo is OK - disconnect the wastegate (it's bolted on to the turbo) hose, then **** on the wastegate hose, you should feel resistance. If not wastegate aneroid has perforated. At this point, I suggest taking it to a LR dealer and get them to pull all the engine codes. If all OK, next step is injectors. It's a common rail diesel and removal is a bit tricky, but if you pull them out, you will often be able to see a single injector with all the carbon deposits around it. If all injectors look the same, suggest that at this point you need to take them to a diesel specialist for testing and calibrating. This process usually cures 70% of diesel misfire problems. The other 30% really requires specialist knowledge of your vehicle's engine.

2000 F-250 7.3 diesel, cuts out runs rough no power


Well, you have to let diesels warm up before you drive them so the engine gets warm and it may not sound right at first because if its not warm the compression gets off and doesnt fire right. If you try to give it too much gas before its warm, extra diesel will get in the cylinders and misfire. Then when it does fire, there is a lot of extra fuel in it so that causes the smoke and smell. You should always let it warm up for a bit before driving when you havent driven it for a while.
