Possibly a clogged fuel filter or bad plugs/wires.

Engine quits running like it runs out of gas?


Many small things can cause this...dirty fuel, water in tank, fuel pressure regulator going bad, air filter clogged, throttle body dirty, clogged catalytic converter. First try fuel injector gas tank and line cleaner...least costly...use 2 bottles of STP concentrated injector cleaner...also add a bottle of liquid heet...to absorb any excess water or sludge in tank...worst cause could be low fuel pressure caused by bad fuel pump...Hope this helps.

1995 gmc jimmy-won't accelerate wants to stall


could be the fuel pump ...you will need to do a fuel pressure test on it ..the pressure should be 63 anything lower even so much as a few lbs will cause this to happen ...as well if it sat that long i would consider a complete tune up and check all vacuum lines for dry-rot

No fuel to the engine


'puter wont deliver fuel if oil pressure switch is reading bad weak or faulty..or if ignition is not sending proper signal to 'puter....on the mechanical side...you could have a bad fuel pressure regulator sending all fuel right back the return line and not into the engine/ clogged fuel rail due to using some sort of nasty fule injector cleaner than turned the lines to jello inside..etc .etc.

I am getting fuel to the tbi but it wont spray through the injectors please tell me what is wrong with it


Add techroline fuel injector cleaner and replace your fuel filter to increase the flow of gas to the injectors. You may need to repeat the cleaner until the injectors are clean.
