Question about 1991 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

When cool in the morning, engine keeps dying. But when it stays out in the sun (in warmer temps) it is not hard to keep running. But after it reaches just below 210, it runs better. Changed the ERG, ERG Solenoid, and fuel filter.

Have the ignition coil or coils checked. That is one component that can become temperature sensitive. Most part stores have the ability to check ignition coils. Another possibility is clogged fuel injectors. If you think that is what it could be, then you can have them professionally cleaned with a fuel injection cleaning machine. I have seen this procedure work very well in certain cases. I hope this information has been helpful and thank you for using Fixya.com.

97 tacoma runs a few seconds and dies. will stay running if you keep foot on gas for a few mins then let off. crankshaft sensor code, replaced it but still get code. could it be iac or tps


If the code for the crank sensor comes back, then there's still a fault in that circuit. Check for sensor resistance and wiring harness short or open. Crank sensor resistance should be 1,630 -2,740 ohms when cold. TPS would not cause those symptoms. IAC could cause rough idle but wouldn't affect higher RPMs. Bad coolant temp sensor could also be part of the problem. Bad sensor = ECM thinks engine is warmer than it is and provides too lean a mixture. But fix the crank sensor issue first since that affects the fuel injectors.

Motor starts then dies several times when cold


Sounds like the cold start solenoid. It is designed to keep the engine running at a set RPM until it reaches a specific engine temp.

Cooling fan relay location for a 1992 corvet


the air con fan comes on with the air con switch. the engine cooling fan comes on when the engine temp. censer reaches operation temp. most times the air through the radiator when driving is enough to keep the censer cool and the fan not working if you stop at lights for any length of time it will come on.

Idle air control is sticking/ dirty throttle plate. bad engine coolant temp sensor not reading true temp (sending warmer signal)

model with coil fitted check this as when they over heat they stop sparking. also the spark plugs and leads, up graded model with electronic timing check the dis pack and then the spark plugs and the leads, leads can check with meter, if hard or stiff leads replace them as this can mean they will crack with engine movement. check spark plug gap to your recommended speck for your engine code. coil should be replaced every 5 years or depending on your driving times these can very depending on coil fitted. dispak type if it has any cracks in the casing replace as water could of damage the internal coil.

Car Surges then dies at a stop only in hot or warm weather


Think about what you just said. Only does this in times of higher temps out BUT never in winters cold. Doesn't that seem strange to you. Well I guess it does, huh. Anyway, know these systems helps. When engine is started, the temp sensor tells the computer it needs to place the engine to cold start mode. It does this and extra fuel is put into the cylinders to keep it running like a choke on the carbureted engines. But those you can turn the choke off or it does this automatically from the warmer engine. If in fact the temp sensor is not telling the computer it's warm enough to be taken out of cold start mode, it keeps dumping excessive fuel into the cylinders an flooding the engine causing it to surge and then die, because it's flooded. Therefore, the temperature sensor is faulty and needs replaced. Do that and drive on.

My 1994 volkswagen golf has a problem with the cooling fan, it keeps running even after the car is shut off. How do i fix that?


It may be running because the engine hasn't cooled down. These fans will run until the engine reaches a specific cool temp. But if it's not running hotter than normal temp, it's within the temp switch, which reads the temp of the engine, or the relay could be bad and not know when to shut down. While you're driving look to see what the temp gauge is reading. This will lead you in different direction for the temp. switch.

The cooling fan is staying on all of the time. when trying to turn the fan it turns very hard.


your engine has a temp sensor that tells the fans to turn you may have a sensor going out or shorting out keeping the fans on constantly ,does it turn on even when you turn the key on in the morning
