Car starts up but dies immediately.

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to remove any moisture problem in the fuel.

Clean / replace air filter.

Mercedes clk 200 petrol 1999.guys I really need help quickly please. Only brought the car yesterday and already it's a goner. Driving home it was very sluggish. this morning again sluggish....

If it runs good in park or at idle but is slugish when you try to accelerate it is likely a fuel issue. I would start with a new fuel filter. When you press on the gas you need more fuel pressure and if the pump cant get more through the clogged filter you will get that. If it runs bad even at idle it is likely a spark issue and needs new plugs and wires. I would give it a good tune up - oil change, spark plugs (platinum or iridium), plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, PCV Valve and see how she runs after that.

Mine want pass emissions high hydrocarbon runs slugish. sometimes wont start takes a couple of times to start could that be main relay

Many things can cause this, so I'll just try to hit the high spots.

1. Poor fuel ignition (bad plugs, wires, cap, rotor, etc.
2. Improper Ignition Timing
3. Lean air fuel ratio mixture
4. Defective Catalytic Convertor
5. Defective Air Injection System.
6. Low Compression

These are general things that can cause this condition, but they may not be applicable to your particular vehicle.

Try a good old fashioned tune up: Plugs, wires, cap, rotor and points (if applicable) and a new air filter.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to also change the oil and oil filter.

The final item (#6) is a sign of a well worn engine and if this proves to be the primary problem, I'm afraid a engine rebuild is in order.

Anyway, good luck!

After i put in a k&n air filter my light came on reset right back on seems a little slugish

clean your mass air flow sensor, the oil from a K+N, if it gets on the screen or the sensor itself, will mess it up-it is a common problem with over oiled filters.

Oldsmobile alero misfires just changed spark plug and oil, car ran out of gas, put gas in and it flooded. now misfires

a few things that could be happening here... When you run a tank dry, it often pulls the sediment from the bottom of the tank... this is very bad for fuel injection systems. Having it run "dry" like this could have damaged your injectors. I doubt the flooding of the engine with gas could have caused any damage that would result in misfiring. I would suggest starting with the cheapest solution first, which is Oil detergent. I prefer CD2 oil detergent. It is primarily used for sticky lifters, but can help with many simple motor issues. It costs a massive 5-8 dollars at any auto parts store or that "W-mart" store.

Make sure your oil levels are where they should be, and pour this product in the oil receptacle. Run the car for about 200-500 miles ( doesnt have to be in one trip hehe). After about 200-500 miles, perform an oil change (including filter). If this clears your issue up, great! it only cost you 30 bucks total.

If not...

Misfire is caused by 3 things and 3 things only. Fuel, Spark, AIr. These are what makes a motor fire. The second cheapest solution is timing adjustment. Any service shop like Muffler M. or Belle Tire, etc, should be able to perform this for 25-40 dollars. It is very possible during your spark plug / wire change, the distributor cap got turned out of alignment with where it should be.

While you have it at the shop, you should ask them to inspect the plugs and wires since thier hands are already on the device they are all connected to. This will remove or confirm one more possible issue.

The next step would be checking AIR. Airflow can be restricted by something as cheap as a cruddy filter, but rarely does this result in a misfire, so, even though its possible, im taking this off the table, Again, during the timing inspection, feel free to ask them to check it.

Another part of AIR is your EGR valve. This is a device that, put simply, recycles your exhaust. If your motor is dependant on this device, and it's cruddy, gummed up, or plain no good, it could be robbed of essential air and fuel. This can usually be checked with a "Code Check" at any service shop for free.

The final part is FUEL. Always the last place you wanna look, because it's the most expensive. This could range anywhere from Fuel Pressure, dirty fuel injectors, or a damaged fuel pump. Again, when you ran that tank dry, there is a possibility you pulled sediment thru one of these devices, or clogged your fuel filter. I hope, and you hope, if it is a fuel issue, it's just a dirty filter. I hope this helped.

All that is left is FUEL. This part is usually expensive no matter WHAT the

Trying to figure out the best things to do for a tune up on my 2000 mitsubishi galant

Start by changing spark plugs,air filter, fuel filter,even oil and oil filter as the engine smells how clean the oil is with oxygen sensor for starters.Check electrical connections and hoses for tightness,if its not running well run a big dose of fuel cleaner through the petrol tank and give it a good run,check ignition timing(if you can)otherwise if its running poorly,get a mechanic to attend to it to diagnose it properly and easily

Truck has no power

Run a diagnostic scan to determine air/fuel mixtures and OBD system management..otherwise you are just guessing. It could be something as simple as a plugged cat convertor.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

The vehicle is a 1993 chevy cavalier 2.2 liter not a 1999what could be causing the engine being s

Many things can effect an engine during the cold.

I'd start by doing other basic tune up replacements. Such as an Air Filter, PCV valve, Fuel Filter, Oil Change. All things things keep an engine healthy.

Another thing to try is a bottle off fuel system cleaner. I recommend such brands as prestone, lucas oils, or STP. These will help eliminate deposits on the fuel system and help keep the fuel and air moving.

Did you replace the plugs with pregapped plugs? If your plugs aren't gapped right this could happen as well.

Hope these ideas help you out bud!
