I made sure firing order and timing were correct. When that did not work I tried the cold start shut off on a super cold motor. If that makes any sense, im still a rookie but im learning. A your idle is set too high, it should be 800 rpm at idle if it is a standard and 900 if it is an automatic. Basically what is happening is; sometimes not always, when the car is parked and I turn the key and terminate the engine, it will make a thudding, turning over sound, like the engine wants to keep running.
Or built up carbon in the combustion chambers. Is your cooling system clean and functioning properly? Drive that puppy up the road a couple of miles and you will see a tremendous difference in the way it runs. Carbuerator needs to be either tuned, overhauled or replaced. What could it he and how can i fix it? I have never heard of the backfeeding ignition one but I have had problems with aftermarket ignition doing all sorts of things I never would have checked that. It costs around 100 dollars so be sure that's what it is before buying one.
I have to unplug the relay from the distributor to get it to stop running. Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine. I'm a wimp to the cold I'm in no great rush lol Back to the sae foam stuff. On this engine, I would pour a bottle of Seafoam in the tank and run it for a couple of hundred miles. Might be worth it to do some more experimenting with the lower fuel pump, especially its power supply voltage. To fix this you can restore it using iTunes.
It is a good idea to mark the back side of the tire where it is closest to the ground with some masking tape. When the car is in Drive it places and additional drag that stalls the engine. But, the stuff is cheap, and easy to use, just pour it in the transmission dipstick tube. It will stumble and smoke something terrible but keep the idle high enough that it does not go dead. The quickest easy-fix would be to go buy some Seafoam transmission treatment at a local parts store. Thank you all, and Happy Holidays everyone! There are no error codes being thrown.
It could also be the ignition switch. It's an electrical problem and is very common. I'm guessing its a timing problem but I admit it. Carbon deposits will also attribute to this, but alotta hotrid engines are pretty clean. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the schraeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge.
So this is supposed to clear out the carbon build up I assume? You could also shut off in gear, i do. Check and make sure your glow plug controller is putting out voltage to your glow plugs, make sure voltage to your glow plugs is cycling. Now if the catalytic convertor is old u may want to replace it and a simple feel from the exhaust tail pipe being weak is a sign that it's not alloying the exhaust flow and choking the engine. It will eventually cause problems if you let it run on. You can check this by taking the air cleaner off making sure the choke is open and just shut the engine off it you see a bit of smoke or haze from the carb after its off you know somewhere raw fuel is leaking down in the intake.
Sounds like the throttle plate s not shutting all the way. Wich would normally cause the shifting problem. Answer I had same problem, It was the ignition module. I was looking through the manual, before removing the tank, to see what might be simple to fix that could be causing my fuel pump to not work occasionally. Basically the engine need to tune up if mechanical condition is ok.
It could possible be a timing issue but before I retarded the timing, which well reduce your power slightly, I would suggest you complete a Seafoam treatment. So I dont think that applys. I could list tons more but the egr is typically what causes these trucks to choke and cut out based on my 22 yrs of owning mine since I bought it new. Takenote as to how the fuel filter came out and be sure to put the newone in the same way and don't over tighten it. I would check my plugs, and run a high quality fuel tretment through my car. For about a year now, when driving the engine will turn off and startup backup.
I dont see how there can be deposits turning red hot in conditions such as that. Let it set for about 10 minutes and crank it back up. I don't know what the problem is. B your compression is too high for the gas you are using. Thanks again for the replies.
