No power when I push the gas


check for plugged exhaust system, dirty air filter, vacuum leaks, those have a mile of vacuum hoses. Also, check for bad fuel pump.

Want idle on cold mornings.


Thinking possibly the air temp. sensor (mounted in the
air cleaner housing) Really need to see scan data to tell for sure
but that costs a fortune at a dealership.air temp sensor is fairly
cheap.

Started my 2005 Kia Sorento this morning. It sounded and felt rough than died. Started it again gave it some gas and kept running rough. but RPM's fluxing up and down.


If no "check engine" or "wrench symbol" shows on the dash, the problem may be with bad gas.

If you do have a light displayed on the dash, Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will scan the car for free. They can give you the defect number and sell parts to you if you can fix it yourself. If you need someone to fix it, at least when you call, you can price the repair by name.

Let the car idle and warm up before accelerating. See if it smooths out or makes noises. The noises would indicate problems that should not be driven.

I hope my solution is helpful.

1994 Chev Astro 4.3L AWD "W" OBD Code 43 168K Miles


code 43, i would expect with running rough but that's not the cause , its a result ,if the system detects noise (knock) it will try to compensate by retarding the timing to save the motor , built in self preservation , i hope your not running on 2 year old gas , i'd be amazed its even running at all , gas varnishes up bad enough in 6 months to 1 year , i suggest getting some fuel additive in there to stabilize and clean the fuel system , or have it drained and start over with fresh gas and go from there . cheers .
