TRY THIS BEFORE U SPEND ANYMORE MONEY N PARTS.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

you say you replaced the fuse, but does the fuse have power? the gray wire at pump should have power when cranking, or for 2 seconds when turning key on. At fuel pump relay, put power onto gray wire, the pump should run if the wiring is good. if it doenst run then ck for power at fuse while power is on gray wire.

It sounds like a MAP sensor going bad. MAP is short for manifold absolute pressure sensor, it senses the manifold pressure and applies the right amount of gas with the right amount of ignition timing so the car runs and performs well if this does not work properly. It throws off the whole loop cycle for the computer, which in turn makes it run badly and get poor fuel economy. It can causes the engine to have a lack of power, combined with a loss of fuel economy. Poor take offs and sometimes an occasional stalling may occur if the MAP sensor is faulty and sending the wrong signals to the ECM.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya.

After replacing my intake manifold and carburetor my engine wont start, only sometimes but it would sound ugly and run very roughly at 400 rpm. PLEASE HELP


You have leaks in your gaskets. or vacuum lines removed and not replaced or broken in the operation. trace air leaks with propane torch unlit. where engine speed increases, you have an air or vacuum leak.

Fuel Pump isnt running. will not start. Its not the collision reset. Simply no elec going to the pump at all. Ran fine yesterday.


Fuel Pump Relay can cause this, so can a bad ground or a dead pump. I would also check the fuse for the Fuel Pump.

It does sound like a fuel problem, try running some jet cleaner through as you may have clogged jets. Sometimes, removal of air filter and placing the palm of your hand over the top of the carb's butterfly valve, will clear blocked jets when engine cranked over a couple of turns.
Also check the float valve is letting fuel in, could be stuck.
I hope this helps.

Fuel pump wont pump


The electric fuel pump will have to much pressure for the carb, you need a pressure regulator to cut the pressure down to 5 psi. The reason the fuel pump won't stay running is because it gets its power from the oil pressure sensor by the distributor. Did you install this on the new engine and plug it in? The relay is what runs the pump for 5 seconds and shuts off.
