Remove spark plug were the water was at. put your finger over the hole without burning yourself. have someone to turn the engine over a few times to see if more water comes out. try this on both spark plug holes one at a time. if you continue getting water from each plug hole then i would say you have a blown head gasket or maybe both depending if both plugs came from the same side,if not then both head gaskets are leaking. that problem would also make the truck or car run ruff/missing/hard to start. hope this will help you.

1985 chevy idles high when defrost is on


Interesting. If it is a vac leak you should be able to plug the line from the intake to kill the leak.
My guess would be the idle speed control is raising the base idle to cover the load the ac compressor would put on the engine.
If the compressor is not working, the computer would not know.

My 85 chevy truck idles real high when you first start it and after 3 minutes you hit the gas and it will idle down to normal could it be out of timing or is there a fast idle screw. tried nothing yet 1985...


thats the electric choke. It warms up the engine so that it will idle properly. It may be sticking. Personally i hate the things and just remove and just hold my foot on the gas a bit when cold starting.

But check and see that the solenoid is not sticking and that the other valves on the carb are not sticking some wd-40 should help.

Check idle speed and mixture at idle. Often with too fast idle speed, engine will not shut off. Many vehicles had an electric solenoind that released the idle speed to much lower, at key off.

I got code p2176 I changed out the tps still got same problem did not have this problem with other engine just changed engine out now cant seem to get this code off causing the car to rough idle and low...


P2176=Throttle Actuator Control System - Idle Position Not Learned
Did you use all you old sensors,or is some of them from the new engine,I would swap out the IAC sensor or check for wires not hooked up.
If it can't relearn to idle the Idle air control might be different then your old one,but its not registering with the computer

Chevy 305 small-block engine runs good has a bad idle and dies when idling. I used a 350 intake and ignition system and put onto the 305 and need to know what to look for to make idle


if this is a fuel injected engine youll most likely have to replace the idle speed control sensor this should solve that problem.youll have to get one for the intake that you put in the car(one for the year and engine size of the replacement parts)

Engine shuts off while driving


I would suspect a faulty EGR valve, but is the check engine light on? If it is, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service free of charge. That will narrow the search for the problem. Sure hope this helped.

Engine idle


dirty intake throttle valve and air bypass idle speed control motor. ttry the following.

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

Engine wont idle unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal


First, try a new accelerator pump. They're less than $10 and easy to install. On the side of the carburator, near the linkage. It's simple a small rubber diaphragm.
