This is a problem with Air :gas mixture. The engine needs a correct air: gas ratio of 14.6:1 to run it efficiently. When this ratio is more then 14.6 it runs lean. When this ration less then 14.6 it runs rich. This is maintains by the ECM responsible for maintaining this ration. It takes feedback from the O2 sensor from the exhaust, and the Air Mass flow before the throttle body to make adjustment with the gas injected to the cylinders. When it runs lean it gives more gas. When it detects rich it gives less gas. Either one of these or both are not functioning correctly can give you this symptom. However when you said you ran OK after 20 minutes, that meant your Air Mass Flow is still working so it make ECM adjusted the gas input to get back to earlier stage. Therefore I conclude that you have a bad O2 sensor. Check this out.

To get a tune up on m 95 cadillac deville what parts do I need.


I would start by getting spark plugs and spark plug wires. And find out (through part store)what the gap is for your plugs.Then i would replace the cap and rotor and check your air filter. If you have over 60,000 miles i would also change the trans.filter and fluid




Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Distributer cap
Rotor (if applicable)
Air Filter ?

Engine still misses after changed plugs and wires and distributer cap. its a 1978 ford f150


Did you change fuel filter? I'd change fuel filter and run a good fuel system cleaner through it, Lots if questionable fuel going around these days.

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Z24 Cavalier, It has 241,000 miles on it. It runs great and I haven't had to fix much on it. Just lately it started missing when you accelerate to speed up fast or go up a hill in...


Normally the first thing that would cause a miss like that (under load in a tall gear) is a secondary ignition miss, usually caused by a plug wire, or possibly a distributor cap or rotor-have these been replaced in the last 30,000 miles? If not, I would do them first. If it still happens, you might then change the fuel filter, clean the throttle body and Mass Air Flow sensor, and replace the air filter-that's a complete tuneup, it should last you another 50,000 plus miles as long as you change the oil religiously and don't overheat it.

96 jeep cherokee, inline 6 4.0... runs fine... after shut off (5-10 mins) acts like its chokeing out, wont start acts like its missing, no combustion (fuel injected) let sit for 20 mins, fires up fine......


Try the pick-up coil that is under the distributer cap.Remove the cap and rotor button then remove the plate that is under the rotor button.Next you need to take off the relucter wheel that is in the way so you can take out the bolts and remove the pick-up coil.

1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L. V6 Engine runs beautifully but after 16-20 miles highway driving engine stalls as if flooded, or as if fuel is cut-off. After sitting for a few minutes, will start and run...


the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work
