Question about 1992 Isuzu Amigo

2 Answers

Fuel related/running related

The car will run fine for a while and then it just starts acting like it is starving for gas--acts like it has the hiccupsand bucks and jerks. I have changed the fuel pump. Don't have a manuel so I'm not sure what the thing is under the car by the gas tank. Please help.

    Don't know where the fuel filter is .Did not check the fuel pressure. When the problem first started it would straighten up after you loosened the gas cap, we have replaced the gas cap and the problem came back. It drove good for about 10 miles and then it started up again.

I think you have a filter problem, Its located under the drivers side seat underneath the car. It has two small clamps that hold it and a braket that has a small screw that will needed to be removed to replace the filter

My 2004 Honda civic won't start. It will start fine minute then I will run into the store and it won't start. It acts like it is starving for gas. If I wait a while it will start.

Check the fuel filter. Air cleaner. Vacuum lines and fuel pump. And all fuses. Make sure the gas cap is venting and dont trust the fuel gauge fill it up.

My standard 99 Saturn sl 1 acts like its running out of gas when I shift up from 1st to 2nd is it fuel related ? Transmission related ?

If it starts fine and runs. It could be the fuel filter. I would start with the fuel and air filter. And check fuel pressure.

Runs fine then it trys to die and runs very ruff acts like its starving for fuel changed fuel filter and still does it ?

Check the fuel pump pressure.
Also; when you use gas with ethanol, it attracts humidity that can turn into water during storage.
The answer is premium fuel.

My club car gas golf cart was running good then al the sudden wont go over idle speed

Perhaps it's a stuck carburetor float valve, bad fuel pump (if it has one) or clogged fuel filter.

1997 contour 4 cyl cranks but wont start acts like fuel starved

If it acts like it's starved for fuel, it probably is related to that. I would check first though. If you have a carb, you can spray starter fluid inside and then crank it. If it tried to start, then it is fuel related. Probably a fuel pump, fuel filter, or fuel relay, or perhaps a fuse. If it doesn't start for a second, it could be many more things. If so, you should check your ignition system, spark plugs, wires, distributor, coils, ect. If your battery and starter are fine, start looking to see if your car is getting fuel. Hope this helps. Being broke down sucks!
