I have never seen or heard such thing. You have a different problem. Is the "check engine light on?" Gas tanks have pressure in them on regular bases and I have never seen car sputtering because of a pressure in the gas tank.

96 dodge ram sputters and dies whem you give it gas


you need to check fuel pressure with a pressure gauge to see if its within specs.it should be around 35psi and no lower then about 32psi.your problem sounds like a fuel pressure problem and the pump should be changed as well as the filter, but check to make sure the fuel filter is not plugged as this can also cause a pressure problem.

05 taurus spits and sputters on startup when cold


This can be caused by a problem in the fuel pressure check valve of the fuel pump. Have a pressure leak down test run by a shop, if the system is losing pressure then the pump assembly must be replaced. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank and is electric

Check engine light sputters knocks and dies


There are several issues that can cause this. (1) Fuel Pump which is located on the sending unit in the case tank. (2) debris in the gas tank causing causing the debris to wrap around the boot or the sock (3) clogged catalytic converter (4) misfire of a plug or simply a bad plug (4) speed sensor (TCM) (5) bad air filter

Fuel Pump Assembly from a wreck ($60) plus install or new about $350 installed, cleaning of the gas tank ($90) or new gas tank $300 installed or used gas tank from wrecker ($125), plugs ($90 plus install), TCM speed sensor $250 installed (dealer only) and bad air filter ($20 easy install)

My 93 firebird starts but sputters and dies


I agree with Dennis on checking the fuel pressure.
Could be a bad pump, restriction in the tank, vent problem in the tank, bad fuel filter, or bad pump relay.

After fueling my 2006 Chrsler 300 C Hemi it sputters and dies


most likely problem is a bad fuel pump. Filters can be in tank or anywhere from the tank to the engine compartment depending on manufacturer and model. You put in new filters when you put in a new pump. UNLESS YOU ARE REAL HANDY AND HAVE THE TOOLS and a manual, fuel pressure tester etc, leave this to a real mechanic. Some tanks have to be drained and dropped , some have access panels in the top under the back seat.

While idling it began to sputter and died. It is


Replace the fuel filter. Have someone listen at the gas cap while you turn the ignition on without starting the engine. They should hear the fuel pump for a few seconds. If you hear nothing then either the fuel pump is bad, fuse is blown, or the fuel pump relay is bad. If you hear the pump it still may be defective and weak. A fuel pressure test will verify this.
