Sounds like the distributor advance is sticking for some reason. Is it mechanical?

Hey, your right about code 42 being the Electronic Spark Timing. The Electric Spark Timing Bypass curcuit or EST circuit is either grounded or open. A malfunctioning HEI module can cause this code so I suggest maybe trying to replace the HEI module. Good luck!

SOURCE: low idle on my 1992 gmc pickup with 4.3 v6

On the bottom right side of the throttle body toward the firewall, is the Idle air control valve. Sometimes this gets carbon build up that interferes with the stepper motor. You can unplug it and remove the valve (it unscrews with a 27mm or 25mm wrench; or the medium crescent will work). Once you have it out use a mirror to look into the bore it came out of. If it is plugged or heavy with carbon you can clean it with healthy dose of throttle body cleaner... If it is really bad you can use a bore brush to loosen up the heavy stuff and flush with generous amounts of throttle cleaner.

Check all your vacuum lines since your there. replace the old brittle stuff. Check and make sure the TBI unit is snug and not loose, look for signs of bad gasket material around the base.

Spray the TBI throat and clean the butterfly. You can use a old toothbrush to loosen up the build up and prevent you from using a whole can of cleaner.

Went you have everything reassembled, be aware that it may stumble a little on start up. It has to burn off all that throttle body cleaner.

After is it idling, you can clean the TBI throat by spraying the cleaner down into the throttle while manipulating the throttle to keep the engine running. (do not over rev the engine)

If the condition continues, there is a procedure to check the IAC. It is fairly cheap at most discount part stores. ($35 to $45)

SOURCE: 1993 gmc sierra 4wd 5.7L running rough mostly

timing might be off a little...or your low idle control might not be functioning. try unhooking your idle control module on throttle body, if it doesnt change idle when you disconnect it, its faulty.

I have a 91 Eldorado 145,000 the engine runs but sound like it about shut off, and when you give it gas it sound like it the catalytic converter is clogged. I just got the car and after reading you...

Sound like not all cylinder are contibuting and the reason it want to shut off is the RPM is to low. If the catalytic convertor is plugged as you accelerate youll hear exaust through the air cleaner and have no power. And yes a plugged catalytic will cause the engine to be rough and not to be able maintain proper RPM and thus the shut off. Inspect for a plug catalytic disconnect it look through it.and since it out start the engine is the rpm smoother , accelerate it does it seem to have more power, then you solved the problem.Also the cadillac has a Idle speed contol motor youll have to see if it nose can extend and retract this is important to maintain proper RPM

Transmission only shifts in 4000 rpm range- see notes.

if it has a cable attached throtle body it needs slacking off big time, if its electriacl it needs a shift solenoid first. before you do anything check the fluid is it dirty and level ok, if all yes a new box.

No power when accelerating

Once you rule out some kind of ignition problems,; spark plugs and wires, ignition timing, distrib. cap & rotor, the cause may be low fuel pressure from a failing pump or clogged filter. Listen to the pump in the gas tank. If its been getting louder lately, have the pressure tested.
