If it is surging and then droping off it could be your idle air control valve.

Has the 'Check Engine' light come on? I had this problem at 30,000 miles and the trouble codes set were transmission component slipping. Ultimately required replacement of the transmission.

Check the stop light switch on the top of the brake pedal arm inside the vehicle. It may be stuck but can be checked very easily. Push the button in and out... should go smoothly and turn the lights on when depressed. Cheap to fix if that's it...

SOURCE: 2001 astro chevy van 4.3 engines need to set the timing

The distributor in that engine can only be installed in one position. The hold down is built onto the distributor meaning when it is installed and the engine runs the computer is responsible for the timing. The distributor will move a little but won't correct major timing errors.

Yes it could but also check under the hood because it is a very common problem for a vaccumm line to come unhooked causing this problem. Hope this helps, Allen, swiftautorepairs.com

When i come to a stop the car wants to die unless u keep ur foot on the gas


Hi Wendi:
If the engine runs fine except when you don't have your foot on the gas, maybe the idle stop needs to be adjusted. With the engine off, have someone step on the gas pedal while you look at the linkage at the carb. There should be a plate with a screw in it that keeps the butterfly valve from closing completely. This can be adjusted with the engine running. (SAFETY FIRST - MOVING PARTS CAN BITE)
If the engine will only run at not nice too high RPM, chances are that the idle jet in the carb is plugged, and a carb cleaning and possibly overhaul may be needed.

When I come to a complete stop in my car, such as at a stop light, my car jerks forward, since my foot is on the brake it cant really do anything except **** in place. I also notice that on my RPM dial,...


Most cars rev on idle at around about 600 RPM and
750RPM and thats when you stop it stays at that rpm rate But if as you say yours trys to move then your problem is trying to still drive and not brake contact as what happens when you get at a stop lights etc the gear box should brake band stop which is like running free or in a manaul pushing in the clutch so your problem is in the GEARBOX..

WHEN YOU PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE


Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it

I have a 1997 Ford Explorer with same exact problem. Even worse, my engine revvs so forcibly, that the truck moved forward and struck another vehicles. You need to replace the oxygen sensor annually. My mechanic informed me that this problem is inherently prevalent in Fords. Hopes this helps? Dave

Won't shift out of park


Look to see if the brake lights work. If they do not come on when the brke pedal is depressed, the fuse may be blown. The brake electrical circuit also controls the shift interlock. You can take the vehicle out of park manually by removing the small square trim tab by the shifter, and pressing the button under it.
