Question about 1988 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

M.A.F. sensor went bad os so i thought. disconnected it, car ran fine no problems. about a month later it starts acting up. since then there's a new fuel pump, filter, plugs, cap an rotor. as well as a new tps sensor. took a week to figure out how to tune it. now car starts an idle's but when you give it any gas it dies. in gear in park, just dies. no clue what might be my problem...still haven't put another M.A.F. sensor on it. i don't know if that will fix it 1988 iroc 305

If the M.A.F. sensor is disconnected it can't help the driveability of the vehicle in question. Do you get a service engine soon light with a code to this effect? I would change it and hook it up and see what happens.

My 2004 jeep liberty stopped running two fridays ago. my mother was driving it, went into her insurance place and left my 13 y/o son in the car with the car running and a/c on. about 8 minutes into that...


I would get the battery checked, even new ones can be bad, I had a Bosch that went bad after 5 months.
Get the codes read, my 2003 Liberty recently had a problem starting also, thought it was the fuel pump or filter, code came back as the Crankshaft position sensor being faulty, could be a sensor giving you trouble, mine would start right away once it got warm.
When it comes to sensors there is not a lot of difference between making the circuit complete and not.

Hope this helps!
Cheers

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

????1762 should be a transmission problem!!! Makes no sense at all.
Review: you had a tps code (but the engine ran well?) You changed it and it threw injector codes and ran poorly...You took it out and put the old one back (was code still there? Did it run well?) You put another new one in and now you have a transmission code? and how is it running?
Only commonality here is that the tps runs in tandem with all other sensors Make sure you clear old codes after doing any work and see what comes up after driving through a few cycles/ And get a volt/ohm meter and test the tps to see if in fact it's out of range. It somehow sounds more like a MAP sensor problem..or even a harness problem....but, test before getting anything else.

2001 pontiac grand will not start all of a sudden. ran fine this


The problem may be the security issue. Do you see a security light? Dust gets into the ignition tumbler and causes a bad contact with the sensor prompting a false security issue.

I had the same problem and thought it was a fuel pump issue, but after a $500 replacement ordeal, I later encountered the same issue again.

To resolve:
Insert the key and turn on ignition tumbler to ACC on (Position prior to engaging the starter)
Wait around ~15-20 minutes (The security light will change... I believe it will flash when the security reset...it's been a long time...sorry)
Afterward, turn the ignition tumbler and off
Your card should start there after

Tumbler maintain: Blow some compress air to prevent this incident from happening.

Hopefully this will resolve your issue without the need of spending any further $$$!
