1992 geo tracker
I have a 1992 geo tracker, it will only run as long as you pump the gas, if you quit pumping the gas it just dies, but if you pump it it will start right back up, can anyone help me.

RE: 1992 geo tracker
Good chance you have a major vacume leak and it just won't idle without constant fiddling of the gas pedal because it's way too lean.

First thing I would do is double check and replace every vac line under the hood, including the line to the power brake booster. At that age they are either soft from oil exposure or hard / cracked from years of heat. Worst case here is you didn't fix the issue at hand but you have eliminated a potential future problem for only a few bucks.

If that doesn't pan out I'd be looking at a stuck EGR valve.
