Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
does it squirt fuel into the throttle body without the engine running?does the engine light stay on?if so,please give me the computer codes
does it do this when the engine is cold also?
When the engine is cold I started it just by turning the key.
the problem may be the ect[engine coolant tempeture]sensor
the computer may think the engine is cold even after it warms..the ect is located on the front of the intake manifold and cost bout $20 at your local parts store
The above DTCs contain a table to check for sensor resistance values relative to temperature.
It is ideling real rough now and white smoke is coming from the exaust. Is it possible it is a clogged fuel filter, other than the engine coolant temp senser? I still have to hold the accelerater down while cranking in order to start.
i would doubt the fuel filter..change the ect...but,,sense you have white smoke,it could be the catalyst converter ,it may be clogged,you will need to let a muffler shop test this
it is possible for it to be the filter clogged and starving t for fuel..but get the things we have talked about checked
i think it may be the ect...but the white smoke makes me also think it could be the catalyst converter
