02 GrandAM at startup the engine starts then stalls or engine starts then idles revs up and down you have to give it gas or it will stall After it runs for a few secs its ok Do I need Plug wires?
Please specify what model year and engine size, or just check for _vacuum leaks_ or a failed IAC. Note that a leaky intake duct (snorkel) from the air filter housing (or a clamp on same) is also a vacuum leak. A failed IAC cannot cause a stall if you press the accelerator (gas) pedal just a bit. Insufficient fuel pressure can also cause this sort of problem. Common causes for insufficient fuel pressure are a failed pump, leaky pulsator or pickup hose, low fuel level, active anti-theft immobilizer, or faulty fuel pressure regulator. A clogged filter can also lead to low pressure, but not at initial startup.

Problem with kawasaki 17 HP engine that runs good then all of a sudden starts idling up and down and wants to stall What would cause this?
Answer . how long of runnng fine then starting its surge problem? Could be a air leak, does it do it under a load, or no load situation ? Check the air filter. Is it puffin…g smoke when it sugrges ? if so, what color smoke? Blue is oil burn, black is fuel, so if puffing black smoke, you have carb problems. When it starts to surge, can you engage the choke and smooth it out? once again, that would be carb problems.... You may be suffering from vapor lock. Try partially unscrewing the fuel cap to allow air to enter the tank. If the engine stays running, replace the fuel cap. Another thing to try is cleaning the bowl vent on the carburetor.. Also, check the filter bowl. Some Vanguard engines have a collection bowl that catches particles and then "sucks" the fuel up through a filter. Mine became clogged with white particles. Engine would start, run for a minute then die. It would repeat till I discovered the fuel bowl issue.. My Kawasaki 17 HP engine was doing the same thing. It has a vacuum operated fuel pump. The fuel pump's air vent was plugged with dust. The air vent is on the back of the fuel pump so you have to remove it to see the vent. Just pour a little gas on the vent and dust off with an air hose..
Car will start but then stall rev engine it sputters after 15 min it will run fine all day there is visible black smoke at start up?
Answer . \nCheck your air filter. Is it petrol or diesel?\nthe most common cause is poor air flow to the engine.\nHope this helps.

Answer . Your fuel pump may not be able to keep the pressue up, because of either a worn pump or clogged fuel filter, or clogged tank filter.
1991 Dodge Dynasty When cold the engine will start and run good for a few minutes then starts stalling and running real rough?
Have you turned the key on and off 4 times leaving it in the on position on the fourth? this will give you the flash codes.. Could be the Colant Temp Sensor.
1995 Buick Lesabre has 114000 miles on it the check engine light came on yesterday and today it came on and the engine stalled out but it started right up and is running ok now?
Take your car to a parts store for pulling OBD I codes or lookup online how to do it and that will give you one or more 2-digit codes that will give you more information. Sugg…est running to the library for a repair manual. If you ask another question later, add what engine it has.
Check for vacuum leaks.
There could be a fouled out spark plug that would cause this.However the carburetor is the most common issue with thesesymptoms.
1988 Mercedes 560 SEC At Idle Engine Running at 1600 RPM's. No way to idle down engine. At the same time the ABS Light lite up on dash board. Car starts and can be driven just can't idle down.?
when i took off the fuel pump relay and i hotwired the fuel pump to work, &started the engine i got 1500 rpm at idle and abs light on, it probably something to do with this. i…m not 100% sure tho. Check the overload protector located on the drivers side cowl, it is aluminum with a red top. There is a fuse under the top cover. On my 560 sel I had to replace the overload protector and that cured the high idle problem and turned off the abs light,
Why on my 1998 rodeo the rpm drops and engine stalls immediately after starting If I rev the engine and shift into gear with my foot on the gas it is fine?

It is called a gas pedal. Check that the air flow meter pipe isn't cracked!

What could be wrong with 1993 Chevy Cavalier Z24 will run when in park and not giving gas when you rev the engine or are driving and stop it stalls out?
First of all, is the check engine light on? If so, you need to read the codes. It could be a weak fuel pump, dirty fuel filter, bad fuel pressure regulator, bad map sensor, ex…tremely bad vacuum leak, leaking fuel injectors....etc. You have to start with the simple things first. Fuel filter...when was the last time it was changed? AutoZone will test the MAP sensor for free. You could also probably borrow their fuel pressure tester and check the system pressure sitting in their parking lot. You need to rule out the small things first....then go from there.

What causes a 96 ram van 39 to start ok then after a few mins start running very rough backfire and stall out and won't take any throttle I replaced the plugs wires cap rotor coil and pickup mod?
I think your next step is to check and make sure the exhaust isn't plugged...possibly a bad catalytic convertor. Most everything else should turn on the check engine light. Th…at's a tough one considering what you have already done. My first thought would have been something electrical overheating. Good luck.
An engine will stall when you give it gas if it does not have the correct mixture of fuel and air. This is controlled by the carburetor or throttle body and may need adjustmen…t.
