Truck dies when idling


HI
first I would like to tell you, do this procedure only if the 5th digit of your VIN is C or K.

Description

The engine control module (ECM) learns the idle position of the throttle plate to ensure the correct idle. Anytime the throttle body is cleaned or replaced, the ECM must learn the new throttle position. The idle may be unstable or a DTC may set if the throttle position is not learned.

Conditions for Running the Throttle Learn Procedure

• DTCs P0101, P0102, P0103, P0107, P0108, P0111, P0112, P0113, P0506, and P0507 are not set.

• The engine speed is between 450-4,000 RPM.

• The manifold absolute pressure (MAP) is greater than 5 kPa.

• The mass air flow (MAF) is greater than 2 g/s.

• The ignition 1 voltage is greater than 10 volts.

Throttle Learn

Important: Do NOT perform this procedure if DTCs are set. Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code

(DTC) List - Vehicle.

1. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

2. With a scan tool, monitor desired and actual RPM.

3. The ECM will start to learn the new idle cells and Desired RPM should start to decrease.

4. Ignition OFF for 60 seconds.

5. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

6. After the 3 minute run time the engine should be idling normal.

Important: During the drive cycle the check engine light may come on with idle speed DTCs. If idle speed codes are set, clear codes so the ECM can continue to learn.

* If the engine idle speed has not been learned the vehicle will need to be driven at

speeds above 70 km/h (44 mph) with several decelerations and extended idles.

7. After the drive cycle, the engine should be idling normally.

* If the engine idle speed has not been learned, turn OFF the ignition for 60 seconds

and repeat step 6.
8. Once the engine speed has returned to normal, clear DTCs.
Good Luck

2007 VW 1.6 FSI 1KZ will shut off when at operating temperature. It will always restart and might or might not shut off again. Usually it happens after starting and pressing the accelerator. Other times it...


Have the 'Throttle' or 'Accelerator' re learn performed. Some will re learn as follows : Turn ignition to RUN with engine OFF. Push throttle pedal to the floor and hold it there for 30 seconds.

Turn ignition off and then release throttle. Start engine and allow it to idle until warm ( 80C.) Do not rev the engine or put it in gear dueing warm up. It must be allowed to warm up at idle only. When you hear the radiator fan come on, turn engine off. Wait 10 seconds and restart engine. Test drive.

This procedure MAY have caused the throttle to relearn. If the same problem is present, go to dealer or VW shop and have them 'relearn' the throttle with a scanner.

Dies when gas pedal is pressed


This engine has automatic idle speed control, the computer controls a "air bypass" valve on the side of the throttle body where the air intake hose from the air cleaner is connected, the valve and the throttle butterfly get "sludged" up and this causes all kinds of idle problems and off idle stall, see full list below and fix for the problems

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 Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body 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 now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

I have 2006 Impala. The idle speed became low and car dies when I slowdown and this problem started after replacing the car battery What could be the problem


If this vehicle is equipped with the cableless throttle, you need to try this first:
remove the air intake hose
clean the throttle door with an aerosol throttle cleaner
replace air intake hose
Upon starting, you may need to apply gas slightly while starting to clear the throttle cleaning chemicals from engine, continue to hold accelerator to 2000rpm for about 2-3 mins
release gas pedal slowly to allow ecm to relearn idle.
This procedure allows the ECM to relearn the vehicle true idle position.

I need to know the correct settings for the "H", the"L", and the "T" on my echo 330T chainsaw . I've got them all out of whack so I have to start it all over from scratch. I...


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Back the jet screws out only 1-1/2 turns each. Remove the carburetor cover and adjust T CW so that it contacts the throttle arm stop, then turn about 2 turns more. It may idle too fast, but don't worry about that for now. Once the two jet screws are preset, start the engine and let it warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H jet CW until the engine starts to speed up. Correct final adjustment is for the engine to 4-stroke lightly unloaded, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Release the throttle (if the engine dies immediately, turn T CW until the engine will continue to run) and adjust L CW until the engine idles fairly well, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. If you go too far, the engine will 'gasp' when accelerated. T is set so that the engine continues to run, but the chain should not be trying to turn. Hope this helps!

My chainsaw starts with choke when choke is off and i press trigger it just dies like its getting no fuel


Check the fuel filter, muffler, and air cleaner for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for hardness, splitting, end rot, or kinking. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If no help, remove the lower carburetor chamber cover and examine the diaphragm and fuel metering valve that it controls. The diaphragm should not be hard, cracked or have any holes. The fuel valve has a rubber tip that may have deteriorated. If looks ok, then turn both L and H jet needles CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. Engine should start and run with these basic settings. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine speeds up somewhat, but is 4-stroking. Correct adjustment is when the engine continues to 4-stroke, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle, and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain stops moving, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Toyota Camry idles then dies


It is NORMAL for the engine computer to have to "Relearn" how to idle the engine after a battery replacement. This should only be temporary and will go away after a few trips.

If it does not go away, or if the Check Engine light is coming on, it will require diagnosis to determine the cause. Nobody can tell you if the problem is related to your recent work until the cause of the problem is located.

Poor idling and stalling on deceleration can be caused by anything from a bad Idle Speed Control motor (ISC)
to low fuel pressure (Clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump) to a bad connection in the A/C clutch sensing circuit. (Kicks the idle up when the A/C compressor is running)

Probably lost idle memory,all computer controlled keep it running for a period it should regain the idle memory if not make sure no rodent chew damage to wires to the throttle position sensor, if check engine light is on scan for faults.
