2003 gmc savana rough idle then shuts off


Does it have any power when you start moving? I've seen a lot of plugged catalytic converters. You may want to have an exhaust back-pressure test done.

Poor gas mileage on my 1993 dodge caravan


If you want fuel economy then dump this beast and buy a nice peugeot or citreon picasso diesel manual then you will get around 30 mpg around town and anything up to 70 mpg on a run ,try paying our fuel prices and this nice typical american petrol gas burner would be delegated to the classic car sunday drive out like my jag with its 4lt engine i can only afford to take it out once a month or so on a jaguar club run around ,other than that its my ford diesel manual escort with its 0 to 60 in 15 minutes but it only uses one tank of fuel a month.

My toyota hilux surf 1992 auto, 3L 4x4, keeps cutting out when i put it in reverse and drive. sometimes it will go for a couple of minutes then just cut out randomlly. whats wrong with it and how do i fix...


Sounds like the idle is too low. This could be due to a bad vaccuum line or a faulty IAC if this car has fuel injection. IAC = Idle Air Control motor. Check for loose or broken vaccuum lines first. If no vacuum are bad and you can keep the car running by keeping your foot on the gas a little and dies when you let the gas pedal up then I would think the IAC is bad. A poor idle can also be the result of a long overdue tune up.

I have 97 dodge ram 1500. Once tha truck reaches operating temp. it will stall at idle. Some times you drive it and it runs fine then you stop at a store get a snack and then it wont start with out pumping...


A few things actually lol. How long since its last tune up? A dirty air filter, worn spark plugs and wires and cap and rotor can cause a poor idle and stalling. Not to mention a dirty fuel filter. The fuel filter is in the gas tank unfortunatlly :(
Try giving it a basic tune up " about 45 dollars" and see if that helps. Good luck.

see when you say you step on it, and the vehicle stalls, it sounds as if it bein starved of fuel...you step on it, and therefore the demand is there, but not the supply. to prevent itself from over heating, the fuel pump shuts off...after a moment of cooling off, it fires right back up...get it checked at your mechanic...do the strainer on the bottom of the pump, and fuel filter as well...is it time for a tune up yet?
