    When cold, my 6 (diesel 121hp) stops from idle. If I hold the engine running with the throttle, I can go. If I stop and depress the chuch pedal before engine is hot, it stops. When hot, no more problems. Any idea ??

Why does the brake peddel sometime goes hard?


Sounds like the engine vacuum drops, incase being a petrol engine. If it's a diesel, the vacuum pump might be worn out, and need to be replaced.

My truck has 160000 miles and just started running intermittingly rough sometimes.All of a sudden it will lose power and stumble.If you hold the throttle all the way down it sounds like popcorn maker...


It sounds like the ignition may be firing early at times. If it sounds like it is knocking and pinging then this can be ******* the engine to keep it running like this. It is better to get off the roadway and shut it down. Check for engine codes, etc.

I hope this helps.

Yes sir , you have a failing valve, soon it will snap in two....please have your head checked. You can do this yourself by placing a long-handed screwdriver , business end down to each cylinder while pressing your ear to the handle(while engine is running)...you will notice a definite difference when you hit which cylinder has the bad valve. Also makes sure the egr valve is clean and your exhaust recycle valve is not stuck.( located in the crossover pipe)

1996 Plymouth Neon 2.0 installed new timeing belt and now car is only running on two cylinders, in cylinder two a missfire was detected and random multiple cylinder missfire


You have the timing belt off. If the engine computer sees the Crank sensor and the cam sensor don't line up, the engine computer will shut down two injectors. It sounds stupid, but trust me. I have seen this before.

1999 Tahoe 5.0 Very hard starting, sometimes requires starting fluid to get started. once started runs fine. Has had a full tune-up, new fuel filter. Fuel pressure has been checked and is ok. 2 different...


The most common cause of this condition is the check valve in the fuel pump failing, to check this hook up a fuel test guage to the fuel rail test port, run the engine for a moment and shut it down, after shout down the pressure should stay within 5 PSI of the pressure at shut down after sitting overnight, if it doesn't then the fuel pump must be replaced, the reason is the fuel drains back to the tank if the valve is defective, so you get air and no real pressure on cold start, A check of pressure on a hot running engine will not show this fault, also make sure you are usine the correct Octane of fuel, Prem fuel in a regular fuel engine will cause cold start and stalling issues in cold weather.

Does the pump cycle eventually if you keep cycling the key off/on, without trying to start the car ?
