REPLACED STARTER AND BATTERY,BUT ENGINE WONT STAY RUNNING WITH OUT FOOT ON GAS?


you may need to clean the throltte body, and then start the engine and hold the rpms high for a minute, then slowly reduce the gas pedal to idle, you blanked out the memory, now it needs to learn the idle speed again.

Running problems


Idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, the idle air control valve controls the amount of air let into your engine when you start or while running you holding your foot on the gas lets more air in.

find the idle control motor on top of the engine and remove it, most times you can clean it with throttle cleaner sold at auto parts. and if that does not work replace it.

Wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed


Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.
