I would check the throttle body for air leaks, but assuming the engine is running fine, there is an adjustment where the accelerator cable attaches to the throttle body. Normally you would not need to adjust, but this might help.

When you replaced the back plugs (fun job, right?), you may have damaged or disconnected a vacuum line or disturbed an electrical connection in the area - check all of these. Other probable causes are a malfunctioning or dirty EGR valve or idle air control (IAC) motor, or a bad throttle position sensor (TPS). These devices may need to be checked, but usually don't fail without warning - check for error codes (DTCs).

The only matter there should be in the throttle body is air. The throttle body in no way has anything other than "nothing" in it. The liquid you see could be the gasoline you threw into the throttle body.

Getting back to your problem. Do NOT have someone looking down the throttle body while you are trying to start the engine. That person may receive a haircut he will never forget! Get the battery charged. Try to start the engine because even though you think you put too much gas in the throttle body, it may start.

The tricky part. If the engine starts and runs for a few seconds, then you are having a problem with fuel delivery and that is the fuel pump most of the time but not always.. If it does not start at all, try one more time to pour gasoline into the throttle body, hold your foot about 1/2 way down on the pedal and then try again to start it. If it still doesn't start, it's time to check for spark.

Car won't keepidel1989 300e Car won't keep idel, starts up runs for a while but cutsoff


first ensure your spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor/coil packs are in good shape. once thats done check for a check engine light, sometimes they come on then go off but a code will be stored regardless. once you have made sure your getting good spark and there are no trouble codes the issue is most likely a dirty throttle body or fault IAC (idle air control) valve or throttle positioning sensor. hope this helps, good luck

Ny nissan 1994 cefiro model has what you call hiccups when driving, fuel pump has been changed including spark plugs, change oil done, cleaned the air intake as well, still has the hiccups?


Did you change spark plugs wires? fuel filter? I do not know if your car has MAF sensor, but if it does, clean it. Use CRC- Mass Air Flow Sensor cleaner. also check Spark Plugs Gap and coil (s)

My 1996 Nissan Pathfinder SE Automatic starts but keeps dying on me. It turns off and then I am able to restart, it keeps doing this at lights, or when I stop or make a turn


The most obvious fix is a tune-up..which would include spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, pcv valve. Other potential problems are coking around throttle plate, vacuum leaks, Timing, water in fuel, clogged exhaust?

1997 nissan sentra keeps dying


Check distributor and fuel, when car dies check for what is missing when it won't start back up. It can be only gas or spark and trust me one is missing. Good Luck

Buick Regal 3.8 dies while braking


Check to see if you have a lot of dirt in the throttle body. Clean the throttle blades out with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. You'll see alot of dirt come out. Keep spraying until it comes out fairly clear and wipe the throttle body out with a rag. If this doesn't do it, you may have a problem with the throttle position sensor (TPS). This sensor controls the idle after the car warms up and keeps it from dying when you brake or sit at idle.
