CAR DIE WHEN SLOW DOWN OR STOP AND LET GO THE GAS

I HAVE A SUV , ISUZU RODEO LS 2001 V6 136000 MILES.
EXHAUST IS LOUD LATELY AND WHEN I START IT ,SOMETIMES DIES RIGHT AFTER.
WHEN I START IT I PRESS THE GAS AND GET RPM A LIL HIGH AND I CAN BACK UP AND DRIVE IT, BUT EVERY TIME I GET TO A STOP SIGN OR RED LIGHT AND I HAVE TO LET GO THE GAS AND PRESS THE BREAK WHILE IN DRIVE ,THE CAR DIES.
SOMEBODY TOLD ME THAT IT MIGHT BE THE FLEXPIPE, I LOOK UNDER AND IT SEEMS LIKE THE Y PIPE (I DON'T KNOW IF THAT Y PIPE OR FLEXPIPE IS THE SAME OR PART OF IT, BUT IT'S DEFINITELY PART OF THE ENTIRE EXHAUST UNDERNEATH OF THE SUV.) HAS A NET THAT GOES AROUND THE PIPE AND IS OLD AND ALMOST BROKEN. I THINK THAT LIL NET IS PART OF THE Y PIPE.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
THE LOUD NOISE DEFINITELY COMES FROM THERE FROM UNDER THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER AREA UNDERNEATH.
SOMEBODY TOLD ME THAT IT MIGHT BE THE CATALITIC CONVERTER?

I went to my mechcanic the same day my engine started to make the same loud noise that you are talking about. he said that it was the flex pipe. just this morning (5:30am 8/3/09) i went to dunkin donuts for my morning coffee and while waiting in line, my car just stopped running. like you said, when you take your foot off the gas and press the break, the car stops. no doubt about it, it is the flex pipe. im sure by now you got your car fixed but i thought that i'd share my car troubles with you :)

Why does my car just turn over but wont start


A suggestion would be to check your fuel filter to make sure it is not stopped up. Your fuse to the fuel pump may also need to be checked. Chevys are notorius for bad fuel pumps.

Bleeding the radiator


take the top off the header tank ( part you fill the water in) top to the top run engine until it boils or fan kicks in to cool down the engine. while it is heating up squeeze the pipes around the engine to help release the air better DONT put your hands near any moving parts. keep the water full to the top while doing this. when at temp turn off engine and leave to cool down dont add any water or do anything till it has cooled down. when cooled down top up to the mark and should be good then if not then the thermostat may be faulty. or you have a blockage some were in the system that is causing the over boiling problem also check that the fan is working and the temp switch for the fan is working all these can make the engine over heat, also when bleeding the system have the heater on number one and heat on full.

Gas spits back if I pump too fast, and the check engine light is on --maybe a vent is clogged--Help!


GASOLINE in the air filter is a serious fuel injection problem....to be honest....I have never heard of such a problem...air goes through the filter into the cylinder where it mixes with gas....to have gas spit back into the air filter.......exhaust valve stuck? Maybe intake manifold is leaking? Gas from the tank goes straight into the cylinder via the fuel injection hose...how does it get into the air filter is really a problem. .

ON LOW GEAR MOTOR IS WEAK ,ON HIGH GEAR RUNS OK


Hi, Sounds like not enough fuel, in low gear motor turns over a lot faster, using more fuel, high gear it chugs on a trickle of gas. When i used to work in a garage, the final test was a long steep hill that would show flaws in the fuel delivery system, and everything else to, well worth the extra few minutes time. Also, if the big fuel tanker is at your favorite gas station, you might better keep driving bye, or else you can pay 4 bucks a gallon for mud, rust, and water. There is a sock screen on the pick-up tube in your gas tank, the screen is so fine and dense, that gas will flow easily thru it, but water has to be sucked thru. Suppose there is 4 gallons of water in the bottom of your tank, car sitten still the water is half-way covering the pick-up sock, car is running good. Junior stomps on the gas, then hits the brakes for the stop sign down the street. The water sloshes in the tank, covering the pick-up sock several brief moments, forcing the fuel pump to suck water thru the dense screen, causing all kinds of problems. Up here I have a big ice slab in the bottom of my tank that grows each time i get gas until april. Now I hear that ethenol in the fuel is supposed to cure all that. When I was young all the cars had drain cocks on the bottom of the fuel tank to let the water out. Best Wishes

Recently Ive started smelling gas or exhaust fumes when my 96 Tahoe is sitting and crunk up! What could this be?


If you are smelling raw fuel i would check the fuel pressure regulator.Pull the map sensor vacuum hose off and look for fuel in the hose and also look in the air intake pipe for fuel if you see any in either of these two components then replace the fuel pressure regulator.
