SOURCE: car won't start or idle

check fuel filter to see if it is clogged, sounds like it is starving for fuel. also check fuel pump pressure if need be.

4.9 litre ?? you having a laugh its a 10ton truck engine not a pick up -global warming machine,remove the pump/sender unit and check the gauze filter also look inside tank for a something floating around ,i think the idles is not a related problem to the vehicle losing power but their is a possibility you could have a problem with the little vac operated thing on the fuel injector line that allows the fuel through only when the engine is running

Have a 1993 ford explore six cyl starts good but put in gear a it stall right away ?


In park or neutral not much load on the engine, when you put it in gear, there is a load. How may miles on the engine? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Check and clean the idle air system and throttle body, see if it helps? Check cylinder compression. If the compression is way low, it may be tough trying to get it to run correctly.
In the old days, carbed engine, no computer, sometimes we'd set the idle in drive, at least it was driveable, it wouldn't die every time you stopped at a stop sign or red light. Yeah, when you put in park or neutral, the rpms would go high. Sometimes, your just trying to keep it on the road, if possible.

2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions


The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

Engine dies when idling seems like electrical problem. wait a couple of minutes with key off, starts right up.


re-tune the idle mixture setting
check for vacuum leaks at the auto transmission actuator , vent controls
raise the idle rpms to around 650

I have a Kia Sedona van 2002 . I stoped to fill it up with gas but i left it running after i filled it up full the van started acting funny and died. I started it back up ran alright then the rpms go up...


Could be a sensor , but without testing , this would be a guess ! Have seen TPS - throttle position sensors on chysler products do this , Mass air flow sensors on GM vehicles , plus bad IAC - idle air control motor . Don't think you would like to replace all these parts , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Have it tested !

idle air control valve sensor and a tune up would probably help the fuel milage plus a new 02 sensor. catalystic converter may be getting restrictive as well. new fluids may help for milage as well.

1976 Ford F150 Bogs down when accelerater is pressed.


if it has a converter on it.....it may be stopped up, but before you replace it have the fuel pump checked, as it may not be getting enough gas at higher rpms. It will start and idle fine, but starve out when you press the pedal. Have you changed the fuel filter?That will cause the same problem.....

Idling problem


Sounds like you need your timing fixed and idle re-adjusted. Also check your fuel filter just in case.
