Are you doing this in the driveway or on the road? It has a rev limiter that will cut in quick in the driveway. Otherwise check all the things doug1111 suggested. Also plug wires are a big problem on those too......Dan

Will not start


This problem can be caused by a lack of fuel or spark or other things but lets start with these, try spraying starting fluid into throttle and then try to start car, if it starts and dies out then we know it is a fuel problem, like a bad fuel pump.try that and let me know the results.

I'd say your battery is dying, or your alternator is not charging it fully. If it is 3yrs or older, suspect the battery.

Car goes great for awhile and then engine stalls when stopping , and is hard starting unless you leave key on for awhile to let fuel pump catch up.


This is not the fuel pump, this is an idle air control issue. Either the idle air control valve is gummed up or the throttle body interior is filthy or both, the fix is very cheap. Disconnect the air ducting between the air filter cleaner and the throttle body. Using WD40 spray and a cloth clean the throttle interior and throttle plate until like new. Pivot the throttle plate by applying pressure with your fingers and clean in as far as you can behind the throttle plate. Remove the idle air control (IAC) valve from the throttle body and clean the associated passageways and pintle valve. Make sure the electrical connectors to the IAC is clean and reassemble everything. You should notice an immediate improvement to engine performance from start up and no more engine stalls.
