How to prevent engine knock on 92 Ford Thunderbird Lx


The sensor helps to monitor the engine performace, and when it detects knock or pinging. It sends a signal to the PCM which in turn adjusts the timing and fuel ratio to reduce or eliminate it in those situations you have knocking. Low octane, bad gas, carbon deposits and heat will contribute to pinging. It's best to replace the sensor if you know it is faulty to avoid damage to the engine.

02 f150 5.4 runs ruff after it warms up


Check the throttle plate for varnish or carbon build up , clean with throttle plate cleaner . Have engine sensors scanned with a scan tool ,mass air flow sensor may be dirty . I'd tell you to check fuel trims with scan tool but you are probably not familiar with these . They show how much fuel the engine computer is adding or subtracting . Great diagnostic tool for trouble shooting engine running problems . Also a scan tool is great to check O2 sensor switching rich to lean an back to rich signal . The engine runs in open loop when cold which means the PCM doesn't look at O2 sensor data till warmed up . PCM/ECM adds more fuel till warmed . Then it will go into closed loop fuel control , the PCM/ECM watches O2 sensors . May have a vacuum leak ,check with can spray carburetor cleaner ,spray around the intake manifold an listen for the engine RPM to pick up or may even stall the engine.

1992 gmc suburban has no power and bogs in cold weather


You need to perform an OBDII diagnostic test and look at the stored faults. Sounds like a temp sensor or Mass Airflow Sensor. Also dirty air filter needs to be changed every 40,000 miles. be sure to delete stored faults and recheck OBDII periodically for new faults.

When car is warm engine races at idle.


it is possible the engine to have a vacuum leak,**** air,or the temperature sensor not to work properly and give wrong message to PCM as cold start. clean also the throttle body from any dirt.

84 ford f150 carburetor was rebuilt runs great when cold kicks and bucks when warm have to stomp on throttle to get to go


Sounds as if your choke is hanging up, or not opening at all. With the engine warm remove the air cleaner, there is a butterfly valve right inside the top of the carburetor If this is closed or mostly closed your choke needs to be adjusted. There are manual and electric chokes, yours should be an electric choke. First with engine cold and the key turned to on check for voltage at the choke wires. If you have voltage, then you might just need to adjust your choke. Electric chokes heat up an element inside the choke to tighten a spring and open the choke butterfly valve at the top of the carburetor. There should be between 4 and 5 screws that hold a ring around the choke housing on the side of the carburetor with the wires going to it. While holding the round choke housing in place loosen all of the screws on the retaining ring. If you can feel the choke housing wanting to spin turn it the opposite way that it wants to turn. Do this in stages until your choke butterfly valve is open with the key turned on, or the engine warm. Hope this helps if you have more questions just ask.

Since day one, my 2007 Dodge Ram Hemi always starts like its in a cold engine cycle. In other words, it starts at a high rpm and steps down in increments for about 20 seconds. Hot, cold no matter. It...


Yes, it is normal for a vehicles idle to be high when first starting up, no mater what the temp. If it`s already warmed up to operating temp, it will still have a high idle for a brief moment when starting. Usually this is the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor. Located in the air duct down from the air filter, and before the throttle body.

Main proplems from IAT sensors are to low of an idle at normal temp, or the idle never comes down after warm up.

Your gas milage problems would stem from Oxygen sensors, plugs, wires, timing, etc...

Here is a quick test, just incase your OBD II (Computer, PCM..) memory module is not working properly. With the engine running, using the tips of your fingers, tap on the PCM, if the engine stumbles or stalls and sends troubles codes that light up your check engine light while tapping, if it does, check to make sure all wires are securely attached to it.

Hard start when air temp is cold, backfires when warm


Try this, remove (MAF) Mas Air Flow sensor,(be sure key is OFF) so you don't set a trouble code when disconecting wire conector, with some throttle body/air intake cleaner from the outlet side of MAF, spray the sensor clean, let dry, reassemble.Remove snorkle from throttle body, and with a old tooth brush, clean throttle body& plate with cleaner, may take a couple of cans if throttle is badly 'coked' up. Hope this helps.
