1990 chevy Corsica 3.1 dies under load when warm. Runs good until you punch it. Has good spark, new ignition control module, new temp. sensor

Hi. There isn't one answer for this issue. Do you have any test equipment? I would start with the vehicle's maintenance history and mileage. Last tune-up (W/fuel and air filter). Any recent repairs that were performed before this issue started. Take a look at fuel pressures at curbside idle and while under a load. Also look at the engine vacuum. Normal vacuum is 16 in/Hg and the needle on the gauge should be steady (Not Fluttering). Good Luck.

Engine stalls out and rough starts

FYI for anyone who finds this thread and is researching the same problem- Try this it fixed my problem. take off the AIC and spray it good with INTAKE CLEANER. do not use carb and choke cleaner, then put it back on. next take off the air intake hose. with someone in the vehicle to keep it running and to resart the motor when it dies, (which it will) spray an entire can of the INTAKE CLEANER into the intake with 10 second sprays. try spraying for 10 seconds , then start vehicle and it will prob die. thats ok. a few times with motor off have the person in the vehicle press the gas to open butterfly and spray a whole bunch. let it sit for 2 minutes then start again. repeat these steps untill the whole can is empty. next- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT- put everything back together and disconnect the positive battery cable for 30 seconds. then put it back and get the motor running again. due to all the intake cleaner and the resetting of the computer it may take a few tries to get it running. once its running smooth take it for a drive and if you can go through a full cycle of driving conditions. example, stop and go , highway ect.. obviously im not responsible if it works or not but i messed with my truck for days untill i came across this advice and it cured my problem. hope it helps someone else.

Cherokee will not start until i hold down on the gas as soon as i take foot off it dies immediatly

Might have to reset the codes on the computer. Take the + battery cable off the battery and reconnect it afer 5 minutes. Next try to start the engine without holding the gas petal down, it should start and run rought till the computer resets itself. If engine stops, restart the engine and hold the gas petal down and give it enought gas so it will run smooth, it may take 5 minutes or so for it to smooth out and run at idle speed. If this did not fix the problem, check for a vaccum hose that may be off some where on the engine

My late 2005 caburettor vw chico 1.4 is sometimes veri difficult to start and after starting engine may run smoothly for a few seconds and then dies out,and thereafter may not start again until a few days...

First, you have to figure out if it is an electric or a fuel problem. From what you are describing it sounds like you are running out of fuel in the carburetor, to check this, once it dies out, remove the filter from the carburetor and look inside while you open the throttle, you should see fuel being sprayed into the manifold. If there is no spray, you need to investigate why there is no fuel getting to the carburetor, it is either a fuel pump issue or a blocked fuel filter. Good luck

Hello i have a 2001 honda odyssey my engine dies after awhile i drive it so what i do to to get running back again is for me to take out the fuse fuel pump from the kick panel on the driver side and it...

My 2001 Honda Odyssey would completely lose power, foot on the gas pedal and nothing there. There were no warning lights prior to the losing power. After letting the car set for a few minutes it would start and run okay. This happened intermittently over a couple of weeks until finally it didn't want to start at all. When turning the key the car sounded like it wanted to start but wouldn't. After a quick trip to the closest Honda dealership and asking a few questions we were told that it sounded like the main relay needed to be replaced. They showed us where it was located on the Honda, we bought a new one and we easily installed it ourselves. The old relay did have a slight burned smell. My Honda is working fine now and it has been over a week with no problems. I hope this helps someone else.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas

It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.
