View Full Version : Engine dies when I turn the steering wheel

Hey Guys,
I just finished doing a head gasket job, replaced the fuel pump, and filter, 2 new o2 sensors.
The damn thing dies when I turn the wheel.
Any Ideas, I did a search to no avail.
Thanks in advance,

Oh Yeah, I almost forgot.
Whilst cruisng at 25, accellerate at about 30% throttle, the engine has a nasty miss.
Thanks again,

At the bottom of the page, under "Similar Threads", is a thread titled "turn the wheel - rpms drop". It mentions the IAC. Did you by chance remove the IAC while changing the head gaskets?
It looks like a load on the engine (power steering, acceleration) is causing it to miss or die. What happens when you turn on the A/C?

Hey J.D.,
Thanks for the response.
The A/C system is not charged right now, but I did see the links at the bottom of the page after the fact. I went ahead and ordered a new ISC(Its never been replaced since I have had the car), and TPS(likewise) Hopefully those will cure the problems. Other than that, there is the miss under accelleration, which I hope a new set of plugs and wires will cure.

if you just put it together it may take a few days to learn to idle right but for the miss it may be a plug or wire
