Sounds like to me the firing order is off, or you have your plugs wires backwards. Maybe a carb issue also. Check for a vacuum leak.

How low is low. If you have the Multiport Fuel injected engine it is normal for it to idle just at 500rpm give or take 50 prm. Anythign lower and you have a problem.



That vehicle is throttle body fuel injected, there is no choke or idle adjustments. You have other issues such as a large vacuum leak causing your idle problem.


The wrench symbol stands for a problem in the throttle system. Maybe the throttle body or the throttle positioning sensor.


A number of things can cause a throttle problem, bad gas, fuel filter needs attention, spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, clean the intake.


Turns out the problem was never the throttle, it was an experimental in-line fuse that went out.


check the oxygen sensors, mine was "running rich" also but it turns out the problem was a bad upstream o2 sensor. The other thing could the throttle position sensor, because the engine is throttle body injected, the sensor could be dirty and sending the computer a bad reading.


No gas or the throttle box problem


The problem could be the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) on the side of your throttle body. If the Rpm fluctuate when stopping also. Make note of this problem with the stalling. This is the most reason why it would stall. Just make sure the other problem In explained is there too before you go out and buy a new throttle body. I had the same problem with my colbolt and the throttle body cost was 255.00 that's with tax. So good luck.


If your 1997 GMC 5.7L Vortec has a misfire at an idle but not while under throttle, the problem is likely the timing. This can be adjusted.


a problem with the throttle potentiometer


There is a problem with the throttle posistion sensor


More than likely your problem is the throttle body. More than likely your problem is the throttle body.


It depends on the year of the vehicle. Is it fuel injected, throttle body injected, or carbureted? Your timing can be off. The carbureter may need adjustment. Or your electronic control unit could be bad. There may be a problem with the torque converter, as well. I'm pretty sure if you have a manual transmission you wouldn't get it in gear if there were a problem with the gears or clutch. Grab a technical manual from your local autoparts store matching the year of the vehicle and have fun


On my 1994 Mazda Navajo, which should be the same as an Explorer, their is a black plastic cover with 3 bolts on top of the engine. When you remove the cover the throttle and cruise control cables attach to the throttle lever there. My throttle is sticking but the problem seems to be where the cable attaches to the pedal.



Your 1987 Astro might go full throttle when the engine is started because the throttle is sticking. This could also be a problem with the starter or the ignition hanging during the start.


Air leak in upper manifold, use a double gasket, problem solved! throttle cable stuck,


It happens in my grand cherokee. somone told me its a loose ball joint in your transmission. A: IF THIS CONDITIONS OCCURS WHEN THE ACCELERATOR IS IN ONE POSITION (STEADY THROTTLE) THE PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY TO BE A DEFECTIVE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR.


If this is an older car with a carburetor the accelerator pump is bad. If the car is fuel injected the Throttle Position Sensor may be defective.


It could be a throttle linkeage problem or a transmission valve body problem.


Usually the throttle return spring is built into the carburetor or throttle body, depending which your vehicle has. I'm going to suggest that this is not likely your problem. Double check that there is nothing underneath the dash holding the pedal (it's common for the under dash trim to fall against the arm attached to the pedal.) There could also be something jammed in the throttle body. If after inspecting for foreign objects you still think you need a throttle return spring, it's a tricky job and it really depends on what vehicle you are working on. If you simply have a spring, then have someone move the throttle with the pedal and watch how it moves. Attach your spring so it holds it closed. Carburetors will likely have a good place to attach the spring. Throttle bodies (fuel injected cars) are meant to be replaced.


A bad throttle sensor can cause engine jerking and rough running. A test of the computer codes should show if there seems to be a problem with the sensor.


It would depend on what the problem is. All throttle problems can lead to a non running engine.


I had same problem with my 98. Mine was the throttle body area. What happens is the throttle body gets carboned up and makes the accellerator sticky and causes the hesitation... To fix: 1. remove the large rubber intake from throttle body. 2. start engine. 3. spray throttle body cleaner (large amount) inside butterfly area of throttle body as you rev the engine to keep it running. 4. done.
