Question about 1989 Hyundai Excel Hatchback

I have an 89 Excel and i got it to start and idle but as soon as you push gas it stalls. If you catch it right as soon as you start it it will rev up for about 20 secs and dies again.

You issue is common with 'AGING' vehicles.... this drivability issue is not necessarily Hyundai Excels. As vehicles age, there are 'MULITPLE' probable causes... primarily the Throttle Position Sensor (which is the MOST COMMON cause). Find a COMPETENT TECHNICIAN to bench test it! If it tests 'GOOD'.. then the diagnosis has to continue to determine the 'ACTUAL' cause.... Sorry, that's the business of 'DIAGNOSIS'.... it ALWAYS takes TIME!

nevr evr replace parts til u know the issue--its either the egr valve or the idle control motor----resistence in electric components from old age cause heat and stop car til they cool--such as injector drivers in the computer-----have a data stream run-it gives values and voltages topinpoint and area--code readers only give a general view

89 Chevy Sprint takes about 5 minutes to warm up to be able to drive away or it stalls when I give it gas. The engine will rev up for 3-4 seconds then drop down and almost stall and then rev again during...


Plug the vacuum line you unplugged and the idle should come back. Change your air filter and the map sensor. check for correct coolant level and replace the coolant temp. sensor. This sensor affects cold starting and idle through the ECU (open loop mode, rich fuel mapping and 1200 rpm idle) It should go to closed loop mode in the ECU once engine warm up is achieved ( lean fuel mapping and normal 900 rpm idle). Do not unplug anything else till you perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history

The engine will start and idle fine. Engine revs


Definitely an electrical problem. Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

2002 Regal - Engine kills right after starting cold.


There are 3 things that cause this, 1st and most common is a dirty idle speed control valve, 2nd is carbon on the back of the intake valves, last but not least is the wrong octane of fuel, if it requires 89 Octane and 91 or 92 is used the engine will stall code.

To clean the dirty idle control valve follow this procedure:
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, 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.
