The first thing is to have the computer scanned, the check engine light is on and codes are stored in the computer, these codes will tell you where the problem is and with some diagnosing the problem can be found, you may need to have someone with a scan tool check this to pull the codes.

Engine wont catch


Catch?
cranks fast
starts every time.
idles fine hot or cold , or both? hot idle not too fast.
i race engine , in park and neutral, I can hit 3500 rpm easy, can you.
i release brakes, (brakes are not packed in ICE , are they?)
I select 1gear or reverse (A/T or m/t)
the car moves or dont move, which is it, my guess catch = no move at all.
I try to drive, i look at RPM and MPH
RPM moves up and MPH track.
track means they both move in a linear progression.
RPM rises and for all RPM increases MPH also increases.
does it?
if all that works then we have an engine power issue.
weak on hills?

Can you rev up the engine in park ?

Set timing mode 1995 cadillac deville


Depending on the trouble codes, it may be the ECM. (computer)
You can have the car scanned for codes or attempt it yourself.
The "set timing mode" is the section of the computer program that you access to change the base timing. It should not show up on the display unless you access it.

Go out in AM, car is cold, starts and runs fine. Drive short distance, stop and restart, runs fine, idles fine. Drive about 8 miles at 50-55 mph, pull up at a red light, when speed gets down to ~25-30...


The EGR valve is unserviceable which causes a bad or insufficient fuel control for em-missions......Hope this helps you out........EGR valves are not very expensive.

YES!!, you had it tuned, it runs good, but gas mileage dropped, and check engine light is on,it sounds like the o2 sensors are slow or even dead, i would replace them for sure and that just might solve all your problems,good luck, hope this helps.

Audi 1999 a4 runs rough idles up and down


I think the fuel has gone bad. it's cloging the injector ports. Try this first remove all fuel from the tank, replace the fuel filter. add 5 gallons of fuel and one bottle of fuel treatment. Run the engine for an hour
this will allow all of varnish from the bad fuel to disolve and clean the injectors. Don't be suprised
if this doesn't totally elimnate the problem chances are the plugs are fouled and need to be replaced also. Good luck
Hope this helps

1997 Volvo 850- It doesn't get gas when it idles- Current Problem My original problem is the same as the one described below. My husband use the same fix described below and it worked. "Hi: We own a 1997...


Hi!

Sounds to me like the engine in fact is getting gas when idleing, but not getting enough air. Therefore my 2 cents are on you IACV (Idle Air Controller Valve). It's a small steel cylinder suspended in a rubber piece on the front of your throttle body, and its job is to supply the engine with air when idleing. This is a necessity since the throttle body valve is closed when the gas pedal isn't pressed. Take out the IACV and clean it thoroughly, also make sure that the air going from it is not hindered by any gunk or deposits on its way to the intake manifold.
(You could have someone hold their hand on the IACV when you take your foot of the gas pedal. If nothing happens it's probably dead or stuck. If something does happen there is still a chance that the air is hindered somewhere).

Good luck, let us know if this didn't help!
