ok read below please , it could be injector or pcm issue
Acceleration Mode When the driver pushes on the accelerator pedal, air flow into the cylinders increases rapidly, while fuel flow tends to lag behind. To prevent possible hesitation, the PCM increases the pulse width to the injectors to provide extra fuel during acceleration. The PCM determines the amount of fuel required based upon the throttle position, the coolant temperature, the manifold air pressure, the mass air flow, and the engine speed.
e Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors voltages from several sensors in order to determine how much fuel to give the engine. The fuel is delivered under one of several conditions called modes. The PCM controls all modes. Starting Mode With the ignition switch in the ON position, before engaging the starter, the PCM energizes the fuel pump relay for 2 seconds allowing the fuel pump to build up pressure. The PCM first tests speed density, then switches to the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. The PCM also uses the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT), the Throttle Position (TP), and the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensors to determine the proper air/fuel ratio for starting. The PCM controls the amount of fuel delivered in the starting mode by changing the pulse width of the injectors. This is done by pulsing the injectors for very short times. Clear Flood Mode If the engine floods, clear the engine by pressing the accelerator pedal down to the floor and then crank the engine. When the Throttle Position (TP) sensor is at wide open throttle, the PCM reduces the injector pulse width in order to increase the air to fuel ratio. The PCM holds this injector rate as long as the throttle stays wide open and the engine speed is below a predetermined RPM. If the throttle is not held wide open, the PCM returns to the starting mode. Run Mode The run mode has 2 conditions called Open Loop and Closed Loop. When the engine is first started and the engine speed is above a predetermined RPM, the system begins Open Loop operation. The PCM ignores the signal from the Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) and calculates the air/fuel ratio based on inputs from the ECT, MAF, MAP, and TP sensors. The system stays in Open Loop until meeting the following conditions: ^ Both HO2S have varying voltage output, showing that they are hot enough to operate properly. This depends upon the engine temperature. ^ The ECT sensor is above a specified temperature. ^ A specific amount of time has elapsed after starting the engine. Specific values for the above conditions exist for each different engine, and are stored in the Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM). The system begins Closed Loop operation after reaching these values. In Closed Loop, the PCM calculates the air/fuel ratio (injector on-time) based upon the signal from various sensors, but mainly from the HO2S. This allows the air/fuel ratio to stay very close to 14.7:1. Acceleration Mode When the driver pushes on the accelerator pedal, air flow into the cylinders increases rapidly, while fuel flow tends to lag behind. To prevent possible hesitation, the PCM increases the pulse width to the injectors to provide extra fuel during acceleration. The PCM determines the amount of fuel required based upon the throttle position, the coolant temperature, the manifold air pressure, the mass air flow, and the engine speed. Deceleration Mode When the driver releases the accelerator pedal, air flow into the engine is reduced. The PCM reads the corresponding changes in throttle position, manifold air pressure, and mass air flow. The PCM shuts OFF fuel completely if the deceleration is very rapid, or for long periods, such as long, closed-throttle coast-down. The fuel shuts OFF in order to protect the catalytic converters. Battery Voltage Correction Mode When the battery voltage is low, the PCM compensates for the weak spark delivered by the ignition system in the following ways: ^ Increasing the amount of fuel delivered ^ Increasing the idle RPM ^ Increasing the ignition dwell time Fuel Cutoff Mode The PCM cuts off fuel from the fuel injectors when the following conditions are met in order to protect the powertrain from damage and improve driveability: ^ The ignition is OFF. This prevents engine run-on. ^ The ignition is ON but there is no ignition reference signal. This prevents flooding or backfiring. ^ The engine speed is too high, above red line. ^ The vehicle speed is too high, above rated tire speed. ^ During an extended, high speed, closed throttle coast down - This reduces emissions and increases engine braking. ^ During extended deceleration, in order to protect the catalytic converters.
