Have you changed the fuel filter or drained the fuel filter housing to get any water out that may have accumulated?

1987 jeep comanche will stay runnning only when spraying carburetor cleaner in carburetor or when you pump throttle rapidly

It sounds like a glogged fuel filter or throttle body problem. Disconnect gas line at carb get a small jar or can to catch gas, hold gas line in jar and have someone crank engine, If you have good gas flow to carb then Its a throtle body problem, (Throtle body and carb are same thing just in case you did not know)could be electrical or mechanical problem at throttle body, Its usually electrical, fuel flow meter. Hope this helps

Doesnt start after throttle body installation

If it cranks but wont fire then your wiring to throtle body is up the duff. If it doesnt cense that it is there then the computer wont let it start.

When i put down the throtle the motor jolts like the hole van jolts unles i put the throtle down more it smoother it self out again but when i take it off again it jolts again pritty bad as well its just...

Replace the throttle position sensor . The engine computer is switching the injectors on and off , hence the jolting effect . The throttle position sensor is giving false information to the computer . Replacing the throttle position sensor will probably solve your problem .

My 2004 Sebring 2.7 V6, stall at stopping, it just restart without any problem

The usal problem that you describe could be as simple as a drirty throtle body or IAC (Idle Air Control )bore is dirty. Any way try this, remove the Air tube that goes to the throttle body.You can now see the butter fly plat that moves as you step on the accelerator. Spray some throttle body cleaner on the plate both sides,and scrub with a tooth brush. now take a rag with cleaner on it and remove what you have loosened replace removed compnents and test drive

4 cylinder motorbike engine won't stay running. Fuel is injected in. The sparks are all working. It will start running sometimes and only keep going with near full throttle which will hold engine at less...

If its cable throtle then clean throtle hosing on the inlet manifold.If that does not work clean the injectors.By adding fuel treatment for injection systems.Or remove and get them checked out.

Electronic Throtle

You should have some guarantee for the money you paid. The dealer should offer to tow your car in. Discuss if they installed a bad part or made a bad guess. If anything they should not charge you for a bad guess. Let the dealer try to resolve this and if you don't get satisfaction ask for an appointment with the factory representative. Sometimes a fresh eye from another mechanic will help.
