I would do a tune up on the van,the rear spark plugs are hard to get to,but chances are the spark plugs by now are about a .100 gap,witch they would be about gone.

88 isuzu 4x4 Truck 2.6L. Starts then dies in 2 sec on cold start.


I would try cleaning the throttle valve body and also the automatic idle speed control valve mounted to the throttle body, this is a common symptom of a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve. Use a product called "CRC" Throttle valve cleaner, run the engine and spray it into the air intake of the engine with the supply hose removed, hold the throttle up while you do this as it will try to stall, use up about half the can and then shut it down and disconnect the battery NEGATIVE cable for 5 min's to reset the system learned strategy, drive it for a few days and see if this corrects the problem.

It sounds to me like you have replaced everything except the most likely cause of your idle control problem...The Idle Air control. (IAC) (or Idle Speed Control Valve) It is located onthe throttle body and looks like the picture below.

The code P0601 means the internal memory of the PCM (computer) has failed self-test. The PCM may need to be reflashed or replaced. The other codes will probably go away after this.

Van dies after 10 min drive when pulling into


Try removing the idle speed motor on side of throttle body, and spray it clean, as well as the port it came out of, with throttle body spray cleaner. Don't pull and extend shaft of idle motor, just leave it in position it's in, and make sure you don't lose small "O" ring on idle motor. Re-install and try it. If it cures it for a while, then starts to do it again, replace the idle speed motor.

Problem with idle


Check your Idle air control (IAC) valve wire leads. It's located on the throttle body, the other thing to is it may be dirty and will need to be cleaned with throttle body cleaner. That is just simple cleaning out the throttle body through out, paying attention to the IAC passage way in the throttle body intake. Once you cleaned out the carbon that should help your idle problem, the other thing that would cause this a dirty EGR valve and it's stuck. The EGR can also be cleaned with Throttle body cleaner by removing it and reinstalling it once all the carbon has been cleaned out. replacing the fuel filter also would not help and that is located in the inside frame rail under the drivers side and takes about 20 min to replace. Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter and clean and inspect the IAC at the throttle body. Good luck and keep me posted.

SHUTS OFF WHILE IDLE OR TURNING


ck to see if your throttle body is dirty. Buy a can of berrymans b12 carb cleaner (spray) and grab a friend. Take off air intake and expose throttle body. Have your friend start the engine and throttle up to 2000/3000 rpm and spray cleaner all arround throttle body while running. It will run like **** while you empty 1/2 to 3/4 of the spray into throttle body. Turn off and disconnect battery for at least 5 min to reset computer. reconnect and presto good rpm's no more slow idle and dying.

2001 gmc jimmy 4.3l.idles low and will stall when put into gear unless engine is reved up a little.


Clean the Idle air control valve (IAC), it's located by the throttle body so the best thing to do is give the throttle body a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner. Do not use carb cleaner, it's to corrosive for the gaskets used on the throttle body's. Just follow the instruction on the spray can and after your done putting everything back together. Turn the ignition key's to the run position for 10 seconds and then off for 10 seconds to reset the IAC. Start the engine and let idle for 1 min and go for a test drive. If that does not work, turn the ignition to the run position and pull the ecm(BATT) fuse out for 30 seconds and then place it back in start te engine. The engine may stall but let it, don't touch anything. Just start it again and let idle for 1 min then go for a test drive. The ECM is just relearning the sensors like the first time the jimmy was driven off the assembly line. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad to get your jimmy running 100%.

Does this thing have a throttle body that looks like a computer-controlled carburetor?

If so, start motor and verify that it behaves irratically and then stalls.

then, spray WD-40 liberally around base of throttle body where tb meets intake manifold.

Start motor...

Does the problem go away, at least whilst for a little while?

Yes?

You gotta vacuum leak. Replace gasket under TB and tighten bolts to factory spec.
