Question about 1993 Dodge Shadow

93 shadow stumbling hesitating stalling

Hi, i have a 93 shadow with mood swings. sometimes it drives like a brand new car and other times it idles uneven and rough. it has stalled when revving in park and will buck like it is choking out when giving it gas (though not all the time and usually at lower steady speeds). ive replaced the plugs and wires, and fuel pump and filter, pcv valve, and air filter, and flushed the fuel tank. the problem is very inconsistent. any ideas? i was thinking of doing the cap and rotor, and maybe the egr next, any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

    I also have similar problems. There is a strong smell of fuel when under the hood. Shop replaced O2 Sensor, Fuel Pump, Fuel Filter (twice), re-gapped spark plugs, Catalytic Converter. Cost me a lot of money and problem is not solved. If you find out what your problem is, let me know. I will do the same.

Like 'nstripes' 9/08 post, my 1990 Shadow has the same problem (mood swings pretty much describes it. It has gotten increasingly to be a more consistent problem though since in addition to changing all the things that 'nstripes' said they changed, I've changed the coil, spark plugs, asked the Dodge dealer to diagnose it and they thought it was an EGR but mine's a 2.5 turbo and don't see an EGR on it and Chilton's says there is no EGR on a turbo. Anyway, I will check into the pickup coil next. I had an 88 Dakota that had that problem once although it behaved more like the post here described, not like Nstripes' post describes... identical problem I guess.

    Was not a pickup coil--appears to be the waste gate valve linkage bad on the turbocharger. Hope this saves you some cash... tricky problem when the dealer isn't able to give a definitive diagnosis. Good luck everyone.

Yea , those crossfire injection vettes can be a bear sometimes . I had dealings with them 84-85 - 86 working as a tech at a chevy dealer . Don't remember much about them , haven't heard anything about them for long time .

How's the fuel pressure ? Have you put a fuel gauge on it ? I would imagine you don't have a Tech 1 scan tool ? What's the map sensor voltage at idle ?

Engine skips after it gets warm


if it does not need a tuneup, then I would say to check the coolant tempurature sensor. if bad it will result in. poor cold idle, stalling, rich mixture and ******** timing, slow idle speed, cold hesitation, stumble, poor fuel milage. good-day! if need be. change plugs and wires first ! this could also be your problem.

its a possibility that you have a bad coolant tempurature sensor. symtoms of a bad sensor are: poor cold idle, stalling, ( rich mixture retards timing ) slow idle speed, cold hesitation, or stumble, poor fuel milage. remove and clean idle air control also, ( IAC ). good-day!!

symtoms of a bad coolant sensor. poor idle, stalling, rich mixture, retarded timing, low idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage. ( will also ****** timing ). in some cases you can unplug sensor and the pcm will compensate by running a default air/fuel ratio and in some cases allowing car to run without the sensor.Id just replace it !! if light is on, get vehicle scanned to find problem code. most all auto parts stores will scan for free, auto-zone etc. have a good day !!

Not picking up gas when engine is cold, sputtering, bogging out especially when travelling uphill, Is this some sort of a sensor maybe??,the spark plugs are new. thanks


check fuel filter. it is starving for fuel. unless the fuel pump is bad. check filter first, then go from there. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor--poor cold idle, stalling, rich mixture retarded timing, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage.

check for codes. If no codes are stored then maybe the idle air control valve is bad, or the air cleaner clamps are loose.. If the clamps were loose or a vacuum hose fell off you should have a code stored. If the IAC is bad it usually will not set a code.
