My ECM on a 1993 Metro just went out and it was similar to what you are experiencing. Mine mimicked fuel system problems, but I took it to a mechanic w/ all of the diagnostic equipment, and he was able to diagnose the faulty ECM. This saved me from unneccessarily replacing fuel system parts, and was well worth the money. I found the ECM for my engine/transmission off of Ebay for $21.00 shipped. You can also get them off of the internet rebuilt for $200.00, and used for $150.00.

Fuel injector off and swopt it to another hole and it work for a minute and then back to problem what could be causing this a bad fuel injector or bad wires?

If the problem followed the fuel injector then it is a bad injector. If the problem stayed at the same hole with a different injector then it could be bad wiring.

On an 1990 S15 GMC is not getting fuel from the injector?

If it is just one injector, it is a bad injector or a problem in the wiring harness or connector for that injector. If it is all of the injectors, it could be a fuse, the entire injector harness, a broken loose or unplugged connector on the injector harness, or the fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator.

Fuel injector

Engine bogs down at high RPM Honda civic?

there is a secondary fuel injector on the throtle body, if you look just under the box with dpfi on the top you will see them. one is brown and one is green if memory serves me (its been about 3 years) the lower fuel injector should be to blame here. the problem is that the dual point is just what it implies two points in other words two fuel injectors. the car normally or at low rpm will run off of the primary injector until the ecu see's fit to engage the secondary injector. in my opinion the secondary injector is cloged, damaged, or unplugged. either that or you need a fuel filter. hope i could help.

Why does the engine rev up when you push in the clutch on a 1998 Mazda pickup b-3000?

I have this same problem with my B3000. The only results I have found is that the IAC (idle air control) sensor needs to be changed. Also, you could try cleaning the throtle body plate and sensor. This could be causing your truck to not realease the throtle body when engaging clutch.

Yes, it could.

What does a fuel injection problem on a 1994 camaro mean?

It means your fuel injector or computer are messed up. Your injector could be very clogged. Somewhere in your fuel system you have a problem. You should have a scanner plugged into your car and get the code, it should lead you to it or near.

What could cause a 1994 Ford Escort to stall at red lights and stop signs when stopping from normal speed?

Hey Rich==The idle speed solonoid is pprobably to blame. Take it off of the throtle body and clean it with carb cleaner. Also clean th inside of the throtle body where the throtle plate is as a carbon ring forms there. Goodluck Joe I had a similar problem and the PCV tube was punctured. $20 part at a ford dealer and you can replace it yourself. I too had this problem and the PCV tube was cracked and collapsed. Replaced and all was well. I also had this problem, with my 1996 wagon.. problem was a cinked PCV hose, was very cheap, and easy to replace. Fixed the problem ;)

What besides plugs and wires would cause a miss to cure itself for two weeks and begin missing again in a 1999 Beetle?

Some vehicles have single, throttle body injectors, others have multi-port injection, that uses an injector for each port. If it's an injector problem, the injector could be partially blocked or gummed up. If that's the case, try a little injector cleaner. If that doesn't fix it you may need to have your injectors professionally cleaned. If it's not an injector problem, it could be valve or sparkplug problems. How long since you've change the plugs? You could run a compression test to find out if it's a bad valve.

1991 chevy beretta the problem i m having with it is it will start if you pour gas directly into the throtle body but other then that all it does is turn any ideas it has good gas pressure up throtle?

You may need to check the path of gas from the tank to the carb. It could be a faulty fuel pump, a clogged fuel filter.

How do you trace down a dead fuel injector on a 1991 Chevrolet caprice?

The 91 Caprice is throttle body injected and has 2 fuel injectors mounted above a Rochester throttle body. The easiest way to check for an injector that is not working correctly is to remove the air cleaner assembly, start the car and visually inspect the base of the injectors for a smooth consistent spray pattern. If the pattern is absent or intermittent on both injectors it may indicate a problem elsewhere, the ECM or a maybe a wiring issue or sensor. If it is a single injector that is acting up it could be the injector or a wiring problem to that injector which could be tested with a multimeter.

When you push gas pedal in your 1997 Mercury Mystique the car advances slowly and wants to stop but if you push the accelerator to the floor you get an immediate response what could be wrong?

If ford seems to choke whenever you put your foot on the gas Is this an injector problem?

Check the fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure could leave the engine starved for fuel when you try to develop power. An injector system does not have a traditional choke but what you describe could be the result of low fuel pressure.
