Question about 2004 GMC Canyon

1 Answer

2005 gmc canyon

I had the fuel filter replaced recently but suspect they never really changed
it. I am experiencing rpm variations while idling. Idle is rough. But runs great. Not showing the "old fashioned" bad fuel filter symptoms. Filter looks super east to replace but is it?? How are lines removed?? This is my first "modern age" vehicle. HELP!!

How to clean throttle body on 2005 gmc canyon 3.5l


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My 94 GMC Jimmy 4x4 vortec, is hard to start, cuts off when i make stops, have to put it in neutral when i am at lights and still have to give it gas then. already changed the distributor cap and rotor...


I recently had similar symptoms from my Kia Rio, hard to start, bad idle in gear, etc.
Ended up being the idle air control valve, you can try cleaning yours with carb cleaner and see if there's any difference.
A clogged fuel filter can produce the same symptoms too, that might be the easiest thing to start with, then it's just a process of elimination from there.

It sounds to me like your idle relief valve is malfunctioning. This little device pictured below does a lot of good things but is a pain when not functioning.

I have po300 and po506 on my canyon code cleared and resets after a while


From http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/
The P0300 is a misfire and P0506 indicates low RPM at idle.

A misfire can be caused by poor ignition (spark plug, plug wire, coil, ignition module/engine control module).
OR
Poor air/fuel (air filter, fuel injector, fuel pressure, fuel filter, fuel pump, bad gas, or engine control module).

Check your maintenance requirements and see if any of these items are due for replacement first.
