This is caused by a lean fuel mixture, and if this problem has come on over time and has gotten worse. it could be an air leak at the intake maifold to head junction. if this started after changing pipes or air cleaner then the fuel system needs to be re programed with some kind of fuel programer, powercomander, hd race tuner, etc...

I'm riding a r106.my trottle seems to have problem.when I'm traveling at constant speed.out of a sudden there seems to be no acceleration when I throttle and suddenly it come back again after...


Sounds like a fuel supply issue. When you say you "cleared the throttle body" did you strip the injectors, check fuel filter etc? Also check temperatures of your header pipes, excessivley low temperature on one header will indicate which cylinder(s) have a problem. Are there any fault codes flashing on your FI light?

Fault with the IAC valve.there maybe a trouble code associated with it also./ Go to your nearby autozone or auto parts retailer and ask them to put a scanner to the car....make note of the codes if any are found. the IAC valve i usually locate don the throttle body and can be removed for inspection and sometimes cleaning using a good throttle body cleaner spray and a pipe cleaner brush.

My car want to die and the lights come on and off then it die


Have you cleaned the throttle body? I assume this accures at idle correct? With the car running remove the air inlet pipe and spray cleaner (Kragen auto) into the intake, hold the throttle on to keep engine from dyeing, do this several times, then turn off engine and disconnect battery for 5 minutes at least and restart and throttle engine to clear out gunk, if the stall is due to sludge in the intake idle speed control port this should cure your problem, unless the idle speed control stepper motor is not functional.
