May be a vacuum leak or an electrical problem (coil packs/plugs and plug wires/injectors) it may also be TPS (throttle positioning sensor)

I have a 4.9l engine surges at idle running way to rich and miss. at higher rpms .I changed fuel filter spark plugs . what can it be?


How do you know it is running rich? The computer controls fuel delivery. If it is running rich, one or more sensors may be giving the computer false readings resulting in a rich mixture. A leaking fuel pressure regulator internally will also cause a rich issue as well as a stuck open EGR valve. A scan test monitoring engine data can inform you of what may be the trouble

Car will start and idle well, idles fine in the different gears. Then when you go to accelerate, about 1100 RPMs it starts surging up and down, but if you go up towards 13-1500 RPMs, it rides smooth. What...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I would say it is either the idle control sensor or the map sensor. Usually, with the map sensor, you experience the car stalling out. If this is not happening, I would say change the idle control sensor. If you have a check engine light on, take it to Autozone and have it scanned to make sure.

1988 chevy camaro 2.8 liter multy port fuel injecton I recenly replaced the fuel pressure regulator, but the car is still running rich, idle surging, and misfire. I appriciate your help>


check you oxygen sensor. check the timing catilitic converters could be pluged now too. running rich can be a cause from that also an efect of running rich if theres another problem. check everything else before replacing the cats becausethey arnt cheap and if ist still running rich it will burn them out. also check the firing order if its real bad u may have one switched. that will cause the cats to glow and burn out.

Sounds like a dirty mass air flow sensor but the hill thing is strange...Is the tank full when this happens? Could be a filter and would not hurt to change it (often neglected).

Dodge 1996 caravan/engine starts then abruptly shuts off


I would check the iac(idle air control valve) first it controls the idle, and then if it is still acting up you may have to change the crank/cam position sensor

You maybe need to adjust the idle speed, on top of the intake manifold, near where it says EFI, there a small black rubber plug, pull it out, turn off everything in the car, then turn the screw in where the plug was to change the idle speed. Or it could be that you need a new Idle Control Valve

near the throttle body part there is a electronic idle control valve either this control valve is defect or there is a leak between the body and the valve.
