What would you like to do?
What could be wrong if a 2001 Alero idles between 300-1000 rpms in park and neutral but in gear idles and runs fine?
Most likely its not your mass air flow sensor its gonna be your tp sensor (throttle position) or your down stream oxygen sensor because a MAF sensor controls your ITS or Ideal… temp sensor witch can affect your accel and your idle when under a load but when its at rest or idle it will be affected by a tp sensor of O2 sensor they call the O2 sensor the spark plug that never gets changed..
Turn off engine. 1) erase the factory test codes by pressing the 2 outside buttons until the light begins to flash (about 20 sec.) 2) Choose one of the buttons… to train. You can train up to 3 different devices. Place the handheld controller within 1 inch or the universal transmitter on visor and push the buttons of both transmitters. The red light on the visor will begin to flash slowly. 3) When the light starts flashing rapidly ( this may take as long as a minute). Release both buttons. It now should be trained.
87 323 sw stalls at idle and hesitates during acceleration and in gear idle is irratic at stoplight.In park or neutral engine runs rough in lower rpm but fine in higher rpm. Fuel filter or pump or MAF?
Answer If you have never changed your Oxygen sensor, this is most likely the cause of the problem; the symptoms you describe are attributbale to a fa…iling or dead Oxygen sensor. I assume the car has recently been tuned (including a new fuel filter) and the problem persists. Cheers Malcolm Hi Malcolm. Thanks for the tip. I changed the oxygen sensor and it has improved somewhat, but did not quite fixed the problem. It appears that idling is irratic when I'm at a stop light. So far, though, after the oxygen sensor change, engine hasn't stalled. It appears that this problem is pronounced when the engine has warmed up. I purchased a fuel filter and will replace it, but am not confident that it will fix the problem. Any other thoughts are welcome. Thanks. Harukim It turns out that the ignition wire was bad. I replaced the ignition wire and my car is running fine now. It appears that it's been running on 3 cylinders(no 4th). Thanks everyone.
1996 gmc jimmy you set parking brake now dash light will not go out.brake works fine where do you look to fix?
Answer . Sounds like the switch is stuck that tells you the brake is on. Simply locate and replace it, should be near the E-Brake handle.\n. \nGood Luck and Remember. \nC…hange Your Mind, Not Your Oil. \nUse the First In Synthetic Motor Oil's. \n See My Bio For Information & Contact Details.
Answer . It could be a number of things, depending on if it's fuel injected or carburated. The easy fix would be a plugged fuel filter. If it has a carburator, it could be …a stuck choke or a vacuum leak.
Any number of things: Bad spark plugs, dirty fuel filter, dirty injectors, and on, and on, and on.
I have a convertible and had this problem. Fixed when i put the key in the driver side door and locked and unlocked it. It reset the alarm. Hope this helps.
It is inside the fuel tank. The tank needs removed to access.
No gap needed. It uses platinum plugs.
I have the same vehicle and have been doing my own oil changes since I bought the car. It's really easy, you just need about 30 mins free time. First, a few sticky points.….. The oil filter is mounted VERY close to one of the oxygen sensors. I have found the only mainstream filter that screws on without any removal of the sensor is the FRAM brand. Mobil 1, nope, Bosch, nope... Also, the engine in your car is quite sensitive to maintenance done "on the cheap." I switched my oil changes to Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 5W-30 and the car runs WAY better. Less tappet clatter on cold starts, better oil pressure throughout oil life... the works. It's an extra few bucks that goes a long way. You'll need 5 quarts of oil and the filter - Roughly $30 in 2009 money. The oil change itself is easy as pie. Pop the hood and remove the oil cap. Lay down next to the passenger front wheel and stick your head against the front bumper. The oil pan is the first bowl shaped thing you can see... with a round indentation right in the middle. On the back, is the drain plug. It measures 17mm and should be replaced every few years so you have a new gasket on it. Remove it and allow the oil to drain. Next, moving towards the front, is the filter - sitting above the oxygen sensor in the exhaust header pipe. Unscrew by hand or use a filter wrench. Be gentle lowering it out the car - and clean up any oil that spills out onto the exhaust parts. While the main drain is still dripping, it's a good idea to check the filter to make sure the gasket came off and isn't stuck to the filter housing on the engine. Replace the drain plug on the oil pan. Tighten it up securely as you don't want to lose it going down the highway! But remember, not so tight that you can't get it back off in 3 or 4 months... Pre-fill the filter with about half a quart of fresh oil. Also put a bead of oil on the gasket. Screw on the filter, being careful not to cross thread. Tighten down to the filter manufacturers instructions (usually 3/4 to 1 full turn after the filter touches the housing/bracket. Put four quarts into the oil fill hole on top of the engine. Put the cap on and start the engine. The oil pressure light will go out right away, then the gauge will bounce up a few seconds later. Don't be alarmed if it takes a few seconds - it's just the filter filling up with new, nice oil. After a minute or so, park the car on a level surface and shut it off. Wait 5 mins and check the dipstick. The level should be right around the upper indent on the stick. Congrats, you just changed your oil!
Need to check the fuel pump pressure with a gauge. It should have no less then 9 LBS at adle, and at least 13 LBS off idle and no higher. 9 to 13 PSI factory specs.
Out of gas, fuel pump, cam sensor, crank sensor, coil, computer,alternator, etc.
600-1000 depends on temperature and load.
Why does my car jerk and act like it's going to choke out while idling in drive but runs fine in park or neutral?

Service manuals might tell you it is under the passenger side headlight, however the one in my 1999 JXi convertible is actually on my fuel tank assembly. What you'll want to d…o is look for your EVAP canister (which is a rectangular box about 6inx6inx3in or so and has 3 fuel-safe rubber hoses attached to it). The LDP should be near that.
