High idle and transmission catches at about 8 miles per hour every time after I stop and then accelerate catches really hard then runs fine high idle in park


may be a faulty tps (throttle position sensor)

would check the idle speed sensor at the same time

if no better
solenoids on the transmission

I've got a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee with the 5.2 v8 fuel injected Holley throttle body. My problem is while driving at soft or low acceleration it accelerates fine, but if you hit the throttle hard it


I would check the voltage on the throttle portion sensor with the engine off from idle to wide open throttle.If there are any dead spots, replace the sensor. If the tps checks out, you should check fuel pressure. If you have good fuel pressure, you may want to make sure there isn't a lot of slack in your timing chain. I don't believe you mentioned the mileage of your vehicle. Best of luck.

Honda stalls going from idle to driving


I recommend doing a leak down test. It could be valves or blow by. Also try cleaning the idle air control valve (IAC-V), the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR), and fast idle valve (if it has one).

When you get on the gas hard from a dead stop it chugs and has a hard time getting going idles fine does good after you hit 20.


three things.. fuel pump is bad or weak, you should run about 35 to 50 pounds of pressure.. fuel filter clogged(hope it's not this one, it's in the tank.. or replace your plug wires.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

The accelerator becomes dead and if you press the accelerator quickly it will work again for a short period of time. The engine runs fine and if accelerating the gas pedal is fine it becomes dead if you...


I believe on those you have one of 2 things malfunctioning, either the throttle pedal position sensor which is part of the throttle pedal assy, or your throttle position sensor on your throttle body at engine. I would get some electrical contact spray cleaner and pull connector off at gas pedal assy & spray it well with that cleaner to see if it makes any difference. There is a way to test if you have someone knowledgable with an ohmeter/multimeter, but in meantime try a good cleaning to see if that help.

I have 2002 audit quattro TT with 180k miles. When I do a normal acceleration the car surges and rpm drop but pick back up. If I accel hard it runs fine. Also at idle at times it varies 200 rpm like a


this sounds similar to a problem i had. as the rpm went over 2000 the engine would stop for a split second and then kick back in.
after a few days looking my garage finally found the problem was a faulty air mass meter.
this cost me £200 in total to be repaired.

Stops while driving


this is usually due to a dirty throttle body. just beware if you do try to clean it you will need to preform the idle relearn procedure. this does work, ive done it personally.

A. Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning Procedure.
1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds (how would you know if you get it right?)


B. Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning
1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.
3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound (i never get this right because i never heard anything)

C. Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)
It's best to time with a watch/clock.

1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.
2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops
blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11 Wait 20 seconds
12Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications. (this is fine because SES light lets you know if you did it right the way it blinks)

Yeah


Ok, it sounds like that the timing is retarded and needs to be advanced. Now when you say revs up and down, is this happening only at idle? Do you happen to have a manual for your truck? If you do, remove the idle air control (IAC) valve and clean the inside of it out. It may be carboned up. With carb. cleaner, clean the inside of the throttle body out. You may see a bunch of black soot looking stuff come out of it. Keep spraying the carb. cleaner until it's comes out clear. Advance the timing 2 to 4 degrees, this will get rid of the "no take off from a dead stop" issues. Get a manual, so you can see how where the components I'm talking about are. Let me know how things go.
