Therory #1
Electrical short or ground
You might have a wire to the coil for 'kill switch' in the handle assembly that is connected to the Off-On switch and is being pinched by something when you pick the unit up. If you pick it up by the body or base, does it die, or is this only when you pick it up by the handle.

If you pick it up by the handle(only), I suspect a pinched wire:
Therory #1

If you pick it up by the base, I suspect it is fuel related:
thus therory #2

Theroy #2
Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

My 2003 eclipse will idle fine but when put in reverse or drive it wants to die.


You should first get the engine scanned for trouble codes.
Try a new fuel filter, or have the fuel pressure tested. If fuel pressure is good, try some injector cleaner. If still no help, time for a tune-up with new plugs and wires, filters, pcv valve. If still no help, possibly the catalytic converter may be plugging up, or your egr valve needs cleaning. Could be a lot of things-you just have to start eliminating one by one. short of a shop running diagnostics and testing to find the problem. Good luck.

Have miss at idle and when the trans need to down shift


You.ve got me confused!!! You have a miss at idle, but at idle the miss stops, and when you step on the gas the miss stops. It sounds to me that the miss is stopping under all conditions - so what is the problem?

I purchased a 1997 chevy blazer ... looks great interior and exterior... but when I drive and stop, i have to keep 1 foot on gas pedal and one foot on break. what do i do ?


Here is the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours.

To correct this problem get a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, spray it into the air intake of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is know clean, if you continue to have the stall out the idle speed control valve may be defective and requires replacement.

93 chevy 1500 v6 keeps dying out.


Connect a voltmeter set on ac volts to the pickup coil wires (disconnected from the module) and crank the engine.

2. The pick-up coil output should be more than 0.7v AC. If not, replace the pick up coil and distributor shaft.

3. Visually inspect the condition of the magnet on top of the distributor shaft to be in good condition. If not, replace the distributor

1. Disconnect the set timing connector or ground the Tan/Black bypass wire.

2. The check engine light should come on and code 42 should set.

3. If the engine stops stalling, disconnect the pick up coil connector at the Ignition Control Module (ICM).

4. Check acv output from the pick up coil while cranking the engine at a normal cranking speed.

5. If output is less than 700 mv replace the distributor shaft with a new one.
