Look for a stuck Idle air control valve. It should be on top of the motor. There are two techniques to work through this issue. One is to thump it with the handle of a screwdriver (if it's stuck this will sometimes help) and the second is to remove it and clean it and replace it. Long term solution is to replace the idle air control valve motor as an assembly.

Also, you need to check for holes in the rubber hose between the motor and crankcase (PCV valve to motor hoses). If anything is squishy soft or oily, that indicates a hole.

Also make sure there are no leaks in the air ducts from the air filter box to the throttle body.

When hot will randomly not start unless gas pedal is pressed all the way down. on a 2001 honda crv. replaced fule pump,fuel relay,fuel filter, dist. cap, rotor, coil,plugs, wires, and ignition control


If you hold the pedal to the floor it puts the fuel system into Clear Flood Mode. This prevents the injectors from firing and lets the already present fuel burn out. Now if this has to be done on every short trip you probably have a leaking injector.

Does the vehicle seem to crank slowly or stop and then crank when this happens?

Why dosent my car advance when i step on the gas pedal


From what you say Daniel, your kickdown cable need's to be adjusted, here's how :

Down at the pressure lever on the front of the trans, loosen off the cable retaining nuts so there is a little slack in the cable.
then start taking the slack out of the cable a little bit at a time;
Rest a long screwdriver on the end of the pressure lever, holding the screwdriver with one hand start opening the throttle with your other hand.

Just at the point the idle RPM barely rises, the pressure lever should just barely move.

Driving test; Going along a level road at 25 mph light throttle, floor the gas pedal.
The trans should downshift to first gear.

repeat the same drive at 28 mph, floor the gas pedal, the trans only downshifts to second gear.

When engine warms up and you are driving and you let up on gas pedal to come to a stop it quits. Try to start it won,t start squirt little gas in carb it will start but if you let up on gas pedal it quits...


Change the fuel filter.
You may have to also change the fuel pump (sounds like it is getting weak) , but the filter is the cheaper/first step in the process.

2001 dodge caravan sport, v6 quit running as I was driving down the road. It will start but only run at 2 / 300 rpm at idle, very shaky. Can not drive it live this, no power.


Sounds like your gas filter is clogged....if you want to do this at home, locate the filter, remove it and blow into it, if you can't blow through it, then replace it because it's bad...if you can blow clean through it with no resistance then it fine...chances are it's clogged.
