88 f150 351w forever to start and when it does it runs real rough until I hold gas down for a minute then idle rough but will start right back up unless it sits awhile doesnt want to start back up


There are several possibilities for this problem. A "cold start" sequence is suppose to activate based on water temperature and the signal from the water temperature sensor. This makes the fuel rich and adjusts timing to make the engine run better when cold. It works like a choke only it is electronic.

There may be 2 sensors with one making the dash gauges work and the other doing the engine controls. If not 2, then 1 sensor would do the whole job.

Another possibility is an air leak in the fuel system which makes the system bleed dry overnight. It is far less common on gas engines but happens a lot on diesels.

Some earlier Ford engines from 1984 to I don't know when they stopped on trucks, would use a step-up solenoid on the accelerator bracket that worked off water temperature. Sometimes a bad water thermostat would make the temperature controls malfunction the other way (High idle, clicking, low idle) that would stall and engine as the temperature vary.

1997 chevy makibu wont start tries to but wont start sometimes it will start other times it wont then it ill start n die in a few seconds whats wrong with it


I suspect that your fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Fuel pump may be faulty. Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

Starts and stalls, abs, odometer & speedometer out


Check for coolant temp sensor fault, It will affect cold start and idle. It controls open loop mode in the ECU (cold, high idle, open loop) Perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history. Also make sure coolant level is correct.

I have a 91chevy pu 350 idles great but if i accelarate and hold it there it eventually starts puuling down till it almost dies then comes out of it and runs smooth again , kinda cycles like this ? any...


I have seen this before where there was a split on the rubber inlet pipe post air flow sensor. Only opened when revved due to the engine movement, try lookin at engine whilst some one revs the car to look for any splits, also try brake cleaner/easy start around inlets, etc if the engine speed picks up you know it's letting In air from that place. Hope that helps

hey that sounds familiar!have you checked your idle control sensor? let me tell you 1st you crank it cold,you have to keep your foot on the gas pedal until it warms up.but then when you come up to red light quick stop,the engine dies or wants to stop? sometimes it starts fine? but when it does,after running for a few minutes,it idles up and down? when it's warm after driving 15miles or so,you shut it off and try a restart,and the engine starts,but idles up and down? all of the above are signs of a bad idle control sensor.the part costs about $20.00 u.s. 2bolts removal 1 PLUG IN REMOVAL you may be able to do it yourself.have an autozone or advance autoparts store employee show you where it's located.you would be shocked at how many great people there are left in the world! i'm answering your question for free at midnight from the u.s. think i'm bored? no. just love helping people like you! thank you so much!

I had an 88 that did something like that, it would idle up and down it seemed to be worse when the engine was cold. It turned out to be the MAP sensor, I never did get a check engine light. A friend of mine had the same truck and we swaped sensors back and forth until we found the problem.

Have a 96 camry 4 cyl auto. After highway driving, the idle becomes rough and wants to stall. The problem eventually goes away after driving a city speeds. Around town, it runs all day just fine. Help ,...


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) 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.
