I decided to answer my own question because it miught help someone out there with a similar problem. The Squealing or grinding sound wasn't that at all. I believe the sound was coming from the Catalytic Converter. The sound traveled up the Exhaust pipe to the Digital EGR valve where the sound was heard. If a Catalytic converter problem is suspected it can cause a Digital EGR valve to go bad by blowing a Gasket. Much like I did when trying to fix this problem. The part digital EGR valve is about 168.00 dollars to replace. You can get it in a Car Boneyard for much much cheaper. When replacing the gaskets on a Digital EGR valve you might have to go to a Store where they will have special Gaskets and parts because the Gasket in between the EGR Solenoid and the Valve body is a Aluminum Gasket with a cork or carboard type of surface to it.

If you suspect a Bad cat and want a quick way to test your car, Go to the tailpipe and place your hand down near the exhaust. If you do not feel any exhaust fumes whatsoever, there is a good possibility of a restricted exhaust system. The Catalytic Converter for a 1989 Pontiac Bonney LE is about 140.00 dollars for the cheapest one. Try and get your parts on E-bay if you can. I bought a Cat for 55.57. i hope this helps someone else with there problems.

Oh and by the way, The problems I was experiencing made it seem like I had a Torque converter problem or a tranny problem. If the Digital EGR valve is bad will cause Poor Idle. Poor Performance. Poor Driveability.

Your 1983 Chevy S10 Blazer might stall when the accelerator pedal is depressed because of a clogged or dirty fuel filter. Gas that is mixed with water or condensation from the tank can also cause this issue.

Yes, a broken or disconnected accelerator cable is the likely cause for the accelerator pedal to quit working. The car will still run fine but will not be able to accelerate past idle.

There can be several causes that the engine will die when you press on the break of your 1994 Chevrolet Caprice. The most prevalent cause is restricted fuel flow. The engine can get enough gas to run when the accelerator is depressed but not enough fuel when you apply the brake.

My 89 B2200 does this. Its like there is a dead spot in the acceleration. It is because the accelerator pump is leaking.

User Avatar

if it runs fine until you push the gas pedal the accelerator pump may be bad if it has a carb on it.

The cruise control, since it affects the accelerator, can also cause a change in velocity.

The brake pedal and the accelerator pedal can cause a change in speed.

When you press the accelerator and brake together in a motor car, the engine will rev, but the brake will stop it from moving. Doing this repeatedly can cause the vehicle damage.
