Poor idle and no acceleration on a '91 GMC Sierra 1/2 ton p/u w/4.3l v6 manual trans


there is vital information missing here
to start with it is a v 6 so there will be 2--HO2S sensors one for each bank before the cat converter and 2 --O2ensors --one for each bank after the cat converter
there is a vast difference between HO2s and O2 sensors as each reports different information to the ECM
next slow acceleration can be accelerator position sensor or throttle position motor
every time you read the codes it cancels them so you have to run the vehicle for a few miles for codes to reappear
from the codes there can be up to 7 reasons for that code to appear so you don't pick on the first one as it could be another or a combination of others

Won't accelerate on highway. Is it a transmission


Won't accelerate on highway? At what speed (estimate) are you traveling before you "punch it". Is the engine a 3.4 or a 3.8? Is the check engine light on? Is it flashing?

These are a few questions I need to know to try to isolate the problem, but to put you in a ballpark of possible causes, causes could be (but not limited to):
poor grade of fuel
faulty secondary ignition components (spark plug wires, plugs)
clogged fuel filter
insufficient fuel pressure
a partially blocked catalytic converter (will aslo cause the floor to be a little warm)
a faulty map sensor
a faulty egr valve
a faulty transmission shift soleniod
a faulty vehicle speed sensor
low transmission fluid level
partially or blocked transmission fluid filter
transmission fluid has weaken due to age (needs flush)

Signs of transmission problems


The most reliable and tried and true method is to check the transmission oil. Check it for...
1. Correct level
2. Right colour: a nice light red. (or somtimes yellow) not brown
3. Smell, it should have a not unpleasant smell, if it smells 'bad', it is starting to break down and will attack the friction material on clutch packs and brake bands.
4. Remove the transmission oil pan and check it for flecks of friction material, metal filings and pieces of rubber.
If any of these things are present, you have, or will soon have a transmission failure. The whine could be the transmission oil pump, the gear set is known to to come incontact with the pump body causing whining noises and creating metal filings which cause the transmission valves to stick..

If the "overdrive off" light is flashing, this indicates an error condition in the transmission ECU.

There is a diagnostics procedure you can follow, but it is a bit too long to go in to here. Try and track down a copy of the Toyota service manual, number RM315E (searching the ih8mud forums is a good start) and follow the procedure in there for reading the fault codes.

It involves bridging the diagnostics connector in the engine bay (facing the front of the vehicle with the bonnet open it is to the right of the engine on the bulkhead) - easy to do...

First things first, did you verify the transmission fluid level? If the tranny is missing even just a little bit of oil it can cause slippage and a whole bunch of unexpected problems. So before considering the tranny is going out, start by checking this out cause it might just be as simple as adding a bit of fluid to the tranny to solve the problem. If the level is good, check the filter inside the transmission oil pan, cause if it is too dirty and/or clogged up, it will prevent the fluid from giving enough pressure for the tranny to work properly. If the oil level is good and the filter looks like new, the now you might have bigger problems on your hands like the solenoid bodies in the transmission, but until you have checked the first 2 things I told you, don't start digging a grave for your transmission.:p
