I have the same problem. I believe the idle air control valve either needs to be cleaned or replaced.
When a 1999 S10 is sluggish and surging with going up hills, perhaps there is a problem with the transmission. The filter might need to be changed, more fluid added, or it might need a complete overhaul.
I recently had this problem. I took it to my mechanic. First he said that there was nothing wrong because the diagnostics came back clean. I asked him to keep looking. He found that the overdrive mechanism was damaged and needed to be replaced.
Because it needs oil
A 1994 Cadillac Deville that has an engine surging problem and is stalling out can indicate it is not getting enough fuel. The fuel filter may be clogged.
No, surging doesn't rhyme with garden. The thing you need to look for with words that rhyme are the endings. These two words don't rhyme because the 'ing' on the end of surging doesn't rhyme with 'den' on the end of garden.
Get your accelerator pedal checked, I had surging problems for 6 months and Ford could not find the problem, they finally replaced the accelerator pedal and the problem went away. The throttle positioning sensor seems to wear out in the spot that it is used most around 1800 RPM
the water was surging over the rocks
I found that a mechanic that used non Volvo transmission fluid caused this problem in my 2002. Once it was replaced with genuine Volvo transmission fluid it stopped surging.
Surging is usually due to a dirty fuel filter. Cutting out is also related to a dirty fuel filter or a fouled spark plug. Remove and clean or replace both components. Surging is NEVER a spark plug. The reason it's surging is because your main jet in the emulsion tube is clogged.
The throttle body controls the amount of air going into the engine. The more air, the more rpms. If the throttle body gets defective and allows too much air into the engine, surging can occur. This surging can be dangerous because the vehicle lunges forward or backwards (depending on whether it is in a forward or backward gear) unexpectedly and without much warning (it occurs very quickly). There are many complaints on the internet about the "surging problem" with Ford vehicles, but Ford has not taken any action to safeguard the public by instituting a recall of the affected models or by notifying the owners of the affected models. It appears that Ford will not say anything about this dangerous condition until there is a fatality as a result of the "surging problem".
i would start with fixing coolant problem brown coolant indicates there is oil in your coolant which indicyrs either a blown head gasket or a cracked head you fix that problem and more than likely, the surging problem will go away
Governor hunting or surging is a problem that causes the engine to constantly speed up rapidly and then slow down rapidly.
The most common cause of surging is a dirty air filter. EPA approved carbs tend to run lean causing the surge condition described. Main jet needs to be replaced with next size larger.
you don't. computer does it. check that there is no air in coolant system or that temp sensor is not faulty. if your surging, that's your problem.
The most common cause for surging is a vacuum leak
Surging Seas - 1924 was released on: USA: 1 May 1924
Check for vacuum leaks on the intake manifold and verify the operation of the EGR valve.
Your RPM surging suggests a vacuum leak. I'd carefully check all the vacuum lines under the hood. You might find one disconnected, cracked or broken. It should be replaced. FriPilot
There are two main regions stable and unstable The pressure rate between the stable and unstable places is called surging.
The description of "missing" could be a sign of fuel starvation (clogged fuel filter - failing fuel pump - clogged injector nozzles) or - a possible problem with the ignition system - bad plugs - dirty distributor- bad spark plug wires. The description of "surging" would lead one to believe that it is probably a fuel related problem.
Surging is often fixed by replacing the fuel filter. A simple job and most small engine shops will have the part.
bad battery. it gives off the rest of its power when its about dead. and that's what causes surging
first you will need to determine if it is surging due to a fuel issue or governor issue. to do this hold the throttle linkage at the carb from moving. slightly higher than at idle. if it stops surging then it is the governor that needs to be reset. if it continues to surge then you have a fuel issue
Most common cause of surging is a dirty/clogged air filter.
