I had the same problem, and it turned out to be the drive chain tensioner. They are manufactured with plastic guides that break at around 100,000 miles. This guide breaks and causes the chain to skip a tooth. When that happens the engine will lope at idle. This could possibly be your problem as well.

Maximil, you probably could. i didn't do it myself . it was done at a garage in manchester which specialize in audi/vw's. it only cost £40 and it took them 1hr. basically, as i understood it, they disconnected the throttle body and where the gold butterfly switch is, they cleaned that carefully with carb cleane. it was an excellent job and the car ran like new, very responsive. if you are in the UK +new manchester, then i'll post you the number for the garage - good honest mechanics unllike a host of other garages that i took the car to who diagnosed it incorrectly and tried to rip me off!!! believe me, i researched this problem for about a year before i got it sorted!!!

Two of the catalytic converters of my kia sorento jeep get red hot. My check enging light is always glowing while driving. The vehicle emits a whistling sound on throtling and the vehicle power is ver


If you scan the error codes what does it say? You can get this done at any autoparts store (chain) for free. However it sounds to me like there is some air restriction in the intake that is causing the loss of power and the exhuast is running rich. This causes the catalytic converter to overheat. You need to be mindful that any leaks of fluid near the catalytic converter can cause a fire and the loss of the entire vehicle when they get this hot.

1997 Grand Cherokee Limited sometimes dies when slowing down to P


This is an idling problem. Whenever the shift selector is in N or P the engine is running free of the torque converter load, so the rpms in these two positions are higher than in 1,2 or 3. If the engine is runing and you are driving say in position 1 and come to a stop and the engine stalls, you need to clean the Idle Air Control valve. This valve provides the engine with additional air anytime the throtle valve is clossed, such as when lifting your foot off the accelerator pedal, while driving. If the valve is clogged (with dirt, fumes, sand, dust), its moving parts do not move freely (or move erratically) under the comand of the Power Train Control Module and so with no additional air feeding the engine when needed, it stalls. The IAC valve is located on the side of the throat of the throtle body, under the air intake hose. Unscrew the air intake hose nut that is on top of the throtle body. Remove the air intake hose so that you can habe better acces to the IAC valve. Next, locate the Idle air control valve and unplug its connector. Unscrew all star screws of the valve and take it out. Apply liquid contact cleaner inside the IAC with a spray. While doing that move with your fingers the movable pieces the valve has, spray it enough liquid to get all dirt out. When the liquid comes out clean, let it drip until dry. The liquid dries fast. When dry, reassemble all. You are all done. To prevent this from happening again, make sure the Air intake hose is well nested on the throtle body. It has black rubber ring around that prevents dust from coming in and clogging the IAC, make sure the ring is there. IAC valves are buit rugged, once clean they are capable of providing many years of trouble free service. Just mind to have only filtered air coming into the throtle body, not dust or smoke. Put the hose well on its place.

2002 kia sedona starts buts won't stay started


I have a 2002 and I had to replace the throtle body and it now perfect. The throtle position sensor went bad and you can not just replace that one part. You have to replace the complete throtle body and it is a dealer only part.

2000 Buick Century air filter


GM hasn't used any wing nuts on their air filter in cars since they switched to fuel injection. It's either going to be several clips or screws holding the air box together. Follow the air duct from throtle body towards air box. It's normally on drivers side. Should be a flat box with the air duct coming out of it.

Did you try starting the van while giving it half (or more) throtle? sometimes, but not usually, after removing a battery a vehicle's computer needs to "re-learn" some of its programing. the vehicle won't start or idle without some throtle. taking the vehicle for a drive if you can get it started will get the computer working properly agian if that is the problem.
