I'm guessing its an auto? Check for vac leaks. Idle and timing set correctly? Vac leak in main intake hose?

Lol.......oh well. So much for encouraging the friendly search feature.

Even if it's a 5spd, same suggestions apply.

I guess.........if you don't mind answering the same questions over and over. Not that I'm against helping AT ALL, but by reading what's already been posted it can save some guess work for the poster. Starts building an associative thinking process.....provided one is able to think. I see DeathCougster has already deleted some truly dumb threads. (I am not referring to this one, though.)

problem is so many of those searches give you good suggestions, but very few post back once they find a fix

When you've put it in gear, you've put a load on the engine. So, let's say it's not getting enough air to the combustion chambers to compensate for the load. Could be the idle air control valve not opening enough. Does the symptom seem to change at all according to temperature or amount of driving?

Yeah........I should know better than to post when I'm less than chipper and optimistic. But, atleast I didn't flame anyone?

..... Doesn't seem like your trying awefull hard to help yourself as we try to help you. Vac leak check yet? Check intake hose closely. Hear any hissing type sounds? What is your idle at?

I'd find someone with a smoke machine to rule out vacuum leaks. And/or run a test on the idle air valve.

No, no.....no need to do that.

The ECU advances timing on an EFI engine based on input from the coolant temp sensor, throttle position sensor, oxygen sensor, and airflow meter voltage input. You can advance the timing, sure, by advancing the distributor, but that's not going to solve the problem. If you have to advance the timing to get it to run right, then it could be running to rich. But, there's several things that can cause that to happen. And, being that it's electronically controlled tranmission, things get even a little more complicated. So, best to start simple.......

You said the timing won't advance. What do you mean? How'd you determine that?

Okay. Just asking so I can try and figure out what's going on.

Have you checked the TPS adjustment?
