Have a 95 olds lasaber starts but doesnt stay running


Well put some gas in it man! No, seriously, a vehicle runs on the physics of three principles. Fuel, air and ignition or "explosion" of gases. You have eliminated two of these principles since the engine "starts" but will not stay running. Most likely because of it lacking "fuel" or the pressure thereof. Only two things to check. Fuel pump, and filter.

You have overheated the engine, check the engine cooling fan operation there is a problem I suspect.

Starts up like normal but jumps up to about 3 grand on the tach then falls down to 1.5 and stays there, engine surges at this idle. Runs good on the road till u have to stop and surges(jumps a little)....


P1294 indicates a vacuum problem or a idle motor control problem. Since you already checked for vacuum leak then the iac on the side of the throttle body will need to be removed and cleaned. The best thing to do is remove the whole throttle body so it can be cleaned as well - both with carb cleaner. The idle solenoid (motor) on side of throttle body should be removed to do a through cleaning. All of the black needs to be removed from inside both before remounting to the intake. Make sure all connections and bolts are tight before starting engine.

Engine Surges and Lo trac light comes on then goes


1.Intake air vacuum leak. Check all hoses and bolts for tightness. With the engine running, wiggle all hoses around and listen for a hiss. 2. Change fuel filter, check fuel pressure. 3. Faulty idle control system/sensor.

92 corsica wont stay running. cleaned MAF with spray!


the maf on it isnt used a maf only a temp sensor the software change made the syatem speed density controlled fuel.. but if you have a idle probel it may just be the Idle Air Control Motor or IAC try to put foor on the gas pedal a little whne cranking see if it fires right up if so suspect the IAC.. is if still cranks long time try the fuel filter but those usually will make lack of power before you get a hard start issue.
