Car was previously driving fine. Made a turn and the car stalled. After stalling the car was extremely difficult to start, but it could be done with constant throttle manipulation, will not idle on its own and not drivable.
Checked the fuel pressure, read 3psi with key on. Replaced the fuel pump and filter - still same difficult to start, will not idle. Will not drive.
Now IAC motor was humming, unplugged it and it stopped. Tried good IAC from different van no help.
Went to go get (brother-in-laws) computer to read what codes we had. (Now, I am going off of memory here on the code numbers. My brother-in-law is the mechanic and the codes/terms mean a lot more to him than me. I am just trying to recollect as best I can)
Tried unhooking the battery for five minutes, retried with no differences. Only one time when trying to start the car did it idle/rev fine. We did not drive it during this time. But it stayed idling and revved fine until we turned the car off. This was not reproduced when we tried starting it again. It continued after this same difficult to start, will not idle. Will not drive.
Codes thrown were (I think) P106, P107 and another that I cannot remember.
We tried unhooking the negative for five minutes, same difficult to start, will not idle. Will not drive. Same codes (P106, P107) showed up.
My brother-in-law replaced the MAP sensor this morning. Car would start and idle. Car revved up good. He took it for a drive and it appeared to run fine until he got to 3000-3500 RPM, then it would stall out and Check Engine Light came on.
He did not have the computer on him to check the code and will not be able to get to it until night time today, or tomorrow night.
Does anyone have any advice/experience with these symptoms?
Thank you for your time!
have the same problem?
