Question about 2004 Chevrolet Aveo

1 Answer

I have a 2004 chevy aveo and there was a split in the air intake hose that i was unaware of until the engine started to stall. I sprayed carb\manifold cleaner in the valve and replaced the hose and now it wont start at all. Could i have damaged the engine too bad with not having a filter system or too much cleaner?

Email me. Check and make sure all vaccum hoses are not cracked. Basically anything connected to you throttle body, or intake that is made of rubber replace it. there is a small crack. happened to me this week. small air leak makes a difference. also if you can replace the intake with a cold air intake. Runs way better.

Sounds like some type of vacuum leak. I have seen either small vacuum hoses off the intake or an actual Intake Gasket leak... Best check out is a Smoke machine test hooked up to any vacuum hose.. if not available , spray areas of hoses / and around engine intake with some type of cheap spray Throttle Cleaner .. small bursts.. if you have a leak and it sucks in the vapor it will make the engine stall/die. That will give you general area to start looking ..

2004 ford ranger,runs rough at idle,i have replaced spark plugs,wires,air filter, and its still runs rough and the longer i run it the worst it get, or when the engine get hot


Try cleaning the MAF Sensor heated wires with spray carb cleaner. They accumulate varnish. It's on big air intake hose. Check hose for splits, leaking air.

please rate.

When I start up my 2005 chevy aveo, the engine rpms go to 2500 to 3000 and will not come back to Idle. when the hood is up I hear a vaccum leak but I can't find a loose hose.


that is causing the high rpm,there definitely is a vacuum leak.you will have to check for any cracked loose or fallen off hoses without the engine running first then if you find nothing you will have to start the engine and find out the area that you hear the leak and run your hands over all possible areas in that section if there is no vacuum hose problems then its possible that there is a intake gasket leak.in that case what you can do is spray intake cleaner or carb cleaner around the intake manifold if there is a change in rpm then that is the area that the gasket is damaged and will have to be replaced.NOTE be very careful when spraying with the engine running as there is the chance of a fire starting with the hot engine or poor ignition wires

Skattamooch,
I had the same thing happen with my 2004 Chevy Aveo, but I drove it appx 3 hours with my hose broken and, evidently, cold air and dampness allowed ice to build up and they tell me thats what made my throttle plate stick 3/4 open! Dont know it you may have done something to the engine or not, but this definately can be quite dangerous!

Stalls when at lower revolutions or when stopped


Low / uneven idle problem can cause by a lot of components.

Dirty air filter

Dirty injectors + o-rings

Vacuum leak at intake manifold and vacuum hose.

Bad Idle Air Control Motor (IAC)

Low compression (170 psi + is OK)

Start cleaning and repair these trouble spots and see is there any improvement.

====

For more advance DIY'er then you may try this.

Use a can of Berryman carburetor clean to locate the vacuum leak.


SEE SAMPLE PICTURE HERE


This is a 20-30 minutes job.

Vacuum leaks can occur in following locations.


Intake manifold AND/OR vacuum lines.


Intake manifold is not accessible unless the engine head if off.

You can still check the potential leak by spraying some Berryman near the intake manifold.

Listen for rpm increase after you introduce the Berryman (FUEL) at idle.


Do the same starting from the brake booster unit (the round unit) on the drive side fire all.

Carefully listen for increase of RPM right after to spray the Berryman to the potential vacuum spot.

Get a friend to HEAR the ROM increase or monitor for RPM on the tech.

DO NOT AIM the Berryman into any heat source.


PLEASE RATE my answer if it is useful to you.

1995 Taurus Engine Stalls


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) 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.
