I had these telltale signs on mine and it turned out to be the beginnign of a weak fuel pump. It eventually set a check engine light. IS your fuel pump getting noisier? As in humming or buzzing? I changed out my fuel filter to buy some time and the pump would go okay for a while and then do it again. Mine woudl do it mostly when trying to pass another car on the highway and in O/D and just pressing the accelerator you would feel it hesitate and stumble and then either kick down a gear or set the check engine light. I also had these signs on my 1995 Tahoe 4x4. Replaced fuel pump & filter- Nothing / Replaced Throttle position sensor-Nothing / Replaced fuel pump relay-Nothing / Removed air filter assy to see injectors pumping fuel into carb- Getting GREAT flow but has dead spot at about 2K RPM. I could physically see the flow decrease as I pushed the gas cable from under the hood. Got frustrated enough to REMOVE injectors to clean em.(Throwing straws at it now)The mounting plate that holds the injectors also houses the fuel pressure regulator. It was totally clogged with grease and oil. I cleaned it GOOD and reinstalled- RAN LIKE A FREAKIN CHAMP= Thought I'd share before someone else sets their Chevy on fire. Good luck -
The vacuum selector switch on a 1999 Chevy Tahoe is located under the dash. It is to the right of the gas pedal.
BEHIND THE BRAKE PEDAL
gas pedal cable?, fuel pump?
A bad pinion bearing in the differential is to blame
Try pressing on the gas pedal with more force.
Key on engine off press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds Itll be reset when it stops flashing
A very dirty fuel filter could do that.
If the gas pedal is sticking on a 1980 Chevy, it is possible that the cable is wearing out. Check for slack in the cable. There could also be dirt on the pedal itself that is causing it to stick.
The engine may be receiving too much fuel and be unable to combust. This may be why it cuts off once you press the gas.
Turn key on ( do not start ) then push the gas pedal all the way down 3 times and then turn key off and then start the engine.
I have a 97 Tahoe and the brake lights were not working and the problem was in the emergency flasher switch. I just jiggled it and the brake lights worked so am thinking you might have the same problem. It could also be the brake pedal switch located right on the pedal arm.
There is a relay in the emergency brake which turns them off. Sometimes it can be sticky. pull up on emerg pedal.
This is not normal. If your car is doing this, get it checked out.
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.
behind the brake pedal
make sure that the parking brake pedal is all the way up, it is a feture that if this is pushed in that the lights will stay off. hope this helps
On the junction panel on the firewall just above and left of the brake pedal. You can see it quite easily, pulls out. Replace with exact part or lights flash at the wrong rate.
Turn the key on do not start push gas pedal to the floor 3 times, then turn key off . And then start engine. May need to repeat once or twice.
the switch is on top back side of brake pedal.
NO. It has a cable.
If you are getting a code 38 on a 1992 Chevy van, it means that the brake switch is stuck in stop mode. This will also cause your cruise control to not disengage when you press your brake pedal.
Is this a trick question??? If it's an automatic it won't have a clutch pedal lol!
A 1990 Cutlass Ciera might hesitate and sputter when the gas pedal is depressed because of water in the fuel or because of damaged or dirty fuel injectors. You might also have an issue with the wiring or the distributor.
An Improper WIPE.. will cause a skid Too much pressure on the gas pedal or brake pedal can cause a skid.
Sounds like a Vacuum leak in brake booster.
