SOURCE: 87 mustang idle problem

try unplugging the alternator and see if it still floods. I have seen this before where the alt causes interference with the computer and floods vehicle. Also check the ground cable from battery to engine make sure it is tight

SOURCE: Car starts fine..Idle is fast...stalls after car warms up

Check for vacuum leaks. Also try cleaning the ISV.

If that doesnt work go to and post your issue there

FIrst have you tried giving the engine a tune up (ie replaced the spark plugs)

Also you need to check the condition of all the vacumn lines on the engine loss of vacumn can cause poor idling.

SOURCE: My 93 GMC Suburban has

I assume it is a 5.7L V8, LO5 RPO. I would start with diagnosis of a misfire, Autozone can do this for free with a scan tool. Second, spark plug wires are notorious for degrading with heat over time--may be a wire. First, get it on a scan tool and see if you can identify the cylinder that is misfiring, and check the wire and or plug in that cylinder. You can always shut the vehicle off and remove one wire at a time, start the vehicle and when you come to the culprit, when the engine will not change its idling characteristics---and you found the cylinder by process of elimination.

Hope this helps

(I am assuming it is in the engine firing with my above statements)

SOURCE: 2005 chevy trailblazer, rough start,

With temperature related problems, check your intake manifold bolts for tightness. Our intakes are plastic and have a tendency to become loose, causing vacuum leaks. When it warms up, the plastic intake will expand sealing any leaks. But when it's cold, will contract, causing leaks. Easiest to check are cylinder #5 & 6 near the fire wall.

Also, clean your throttle body, a dirty throttle body will cause idle problems, especially in TB's because we don't have a true PCV valve, so gets dirty which causes sticking of the butterfly.

What would cause my idle to be all over the place the car will not adle smooth it is either to high or it will act like it will stall and it smells like it is flooding when it almost stalls .

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

My car stops at idle after running for a while. it will restart but with difficultly ?

that is called stalling
the PCM works OVERTIME to prevent all stalls
there are over 50 causes of stalls. and about 4 or 5 in pure physics.
we can do 2 things, guess, and tests
testing takes tools , got tools and the gauges?
I can tell you each test. but the story is long,,, and id bet you want gue$$ing (last)
  1. lost 12vdc to EFI or spark systems. (dead battery? blow or loose fuse//?
  2. lost engine compression 1 or more cylinder, hot only?
  3. bad spark , do a tune up now.
  4. lost fueling or flooding, (a new fuel filter can help if its not inside tank as the stupid EPA put it....... dont ask.......
  5. ISC is stuck (IAC-electric) the ISC can gum up and the ECU can no longer control idle speed.
the first tests are free.
  • can your fast acting right foot save the stall?
  • can you start car with WOT, this clears flooding.
  • can test fuel, start engine when it dont want to?

wot (this is in the oper guide) means wide open throttle,
while cranking this magic trick , cuts all fuel and clears all flooding.

that is it, all else takes tools. no tools no joy. sorry.

I recently purchased a 1987 toyota celica gt-s. I am dealin with an idle problem/loss of power. Just recently it started acting up. At first it was only happening when i was shifting into second. Shifted...

Check for code there is a small electric boxe may be 1 inch by 1.5 inch you have to jump 2 wire to get code at dash (long blink digit and fast blink unit)

Bad body throttle

old posts .
if it cranks all engine stall for the following reason.
(physics) in the proper order.
1: engine bad. (or cant breath) (compression loss huge 1 or more cylinders.
2: this engine 1.0L or 1.3 runs on GAS, and spark is next , no spark running end. (slow or fast, and is called misfiring)
3: bad fuel, (too much flooding its called or too little bogging and stalls)

1,2,3, its one of those 3 things
there 3 exceptions (kinda)
a: battery power ended, 12v became 8v and engine stalls, actually EFI goes (OFFLINE) when no power. to run it.
b: EGR stuck open. very common, make all the above useless when stuck open.

c: idle air, the engine need air to breath or it floods.
there are 2 parts related to this fact, IAC valves if many times. or ISC valves, that meter air hot or cold engine.
(thermal air valve or electric or both)
if they stick closed, no air now , engine stalls , unless you right hot foot the throttle pedal and save the stall., if that is super easy , you lost air !

the number 1 reason for stalls in not getting tuneup.
Are your spark plugs in car , antique?
going for the 10 year record on spark plugs, or spark wires.
then FILTERs.
to solve this riddle, the shop uses TOOLS, those tools.
Gauges , meters, scanners and scopes.
Make the job easy and fast.
why not ask a shop just to diagnose car. (be wise to tune up first and not have them prove to you with hours of labor proving, gee,
all these parts here, are useless. (aka. basic service points parts)

Fuel pump relay wiring diagram

hot engine or cold or both??????????
and #1 all time question on topic, can you prevent the stall with a fast acting right foot.. A KEY CHECK and FACT !
Is it totally intermittent, and runs perfect other times,,,, gee, just a hint here.....???????? if yes, #2 below is probably ok.

can be lots of things, that cause stalls (over 50), not just the fuel pump.
we check fuel pressure if at spec. then i forget that. (easy huh?)
let me make a list . (works on all gas cars)
  1. lost 12vdc power to EFI system (dash lamps go dead?) loose fuse? dead battery, battery lugs filty, etc.
  2. bad engine compression , can happen hot,
  3. lost spark , ever give it a 60k mile tuneup? test spark using SOP ways and means, google it.
  4. bad fueling (note how its last as you can NOT burn fuel with above bad. period. We learn to read spark plug tips for clues.
  5. bad fueling too much is flooding or starving.
  6. EGR valve stuck open will stall any engine , or near stall.
  7. there are up to 50 causes but the above MACRO , covers most.
ever think to use a scan tool and scan it for errors at the stall.
a scan tool can be had for $9 buck.s
or rent one, or barrow one, many auto stores lend them.
in the hope you will start buying parts like crazy, lacking and FSM
and the reading these tests. in said manual.

1990 jeep wrangler runs rih won't stay running replaced map sensor and temp sensor

which engine,? the have up to 3 choices.
what are the full symptoms,
did you do the full listed 60k mile tune up on car?
sparkplugs,wire, cap rotor/filters? no engine runs right with bad spark
unless it's a diesel.
starts good
runs good or bad hot or cold engine
idle at 800 RPM hot?
stalls> when hot and cold engine
lost of power

only stalls , but runs perfect even up hills, at wide open throttle.
fresh gas, or 1 year old?fuel.
can your fast right foot , save the stall, and easily?

ok stalls 101.
1; lost 12vdc to EFI system.
2: lost engine compression.
3: lost spark.
4: lost fueling or floods
there is a simple test for each.
do you want more guesses, or how to do tests.
can do both, but my guessing fails 99 /100 times.

tune it up
do the right foot test. those are always first. on stalls.

06 honda element dies in am replaced iacv & still does it???

hot engine or cold or both, just a clue here.
wow gue$$sing is expen$ive.
is the CEL lamp glowing ever running,, YES?< then scan it.

ok so it stalls.
after the skipped 60k mile tuneup is done
if it still stalls.
so you use the right foot action fast acting at stall...?????
and you can prevent the stall easy.
1: very easy, iSC stuck closed or throttle idle detection is bad.
2: harder to stop stall but can , EGR leaks, main EGR valve.
3: impossible. this is gross spark failure ,or loss fuel or flooding

see how far you get on my list. and post back.

first ,now how the EFI works not guessing
it tries all the time to prevent stalls if it cant prevent it, it does stall.
rule2, the ECU controls idle speeds at all times the ISC is the slave to that..... so if the ECU open the valve and the stall gets worse.
its not the ISC/ECU fault. its fueling or spark.
a lean engine stalls. if lean enough ,no ISC can stop that.
a misfiring engine stalls, too.

a tech, dont attach the ISC< no he does not
he looks at spark an fuel rates. using , a scan tool.
The ISC can not cover the bad tracks of bad fueling and spark
nor a stuck open EGR.
THE ISC is dead if the TPS is set wrong, and the ECU thinks wrongly
that you are not at idle. so the ECU cuts idle controls

I use my scan tool to watch the, for error,s DTCS,. and pending errors
and watch for closed loop at idle. hot.
if it is in close loop at idle and it stalls then the ISC is failing
if rigth foot can save it easy.
id bet the fueling and spark are bad or TPS not closed, signalling close or the EGR is stuck wide open'

btw., if eCU drop s to limphome mod (scan it) it will infact drop all ISC
idle controls..

we look for the true cause, do tests, then replace parts
never the reverse or go broke fast.

No power won't hold idle

stalls. (hot engine, cold engine, both?)_what engine of the many.?
lost engine power. sure that will stall any motor.
ever tune it up r, or do the 60k mile service points, EVER?
if car was serviced, we can then say
1: lost 12vdc to EFI and spark , did dash lamps all go dead at stall.
can you save the stall with a fast right foot. (big clue there !!!)
2: lost compression hot. (guage it)
3: lost spark. (tests)
4: lost fueling, or floods more simple tests, ask if not known.
5: EGR main valve stuck wide open.
6: ISC stuck closed but will not stop power, or fast right foot.

lost fueling can be just the skippped, 60k fuel fuilter swap.

Alfa 164 loses power on accelleration when hot. acts like its flooding and stalling. idles ok when put in neutral but once in drive, it tries to stall. on intitial start up it's fine, but within 10 minutes...

The fuel injection has an engine temperature sensor that is supposed to make the mixture very rich when cold, but then leaner as it warms up. If the thermal resistor is burned out, then it will have too much resistance all the time, and the engine will be flooded out. Use an ohmmeter to measure the temperature sensor resistance. I don't remember the exact values, but bad ones often times go 0 or infinite. And you should see it vary with temperature.
