Many times it could be the gas. try getting Techron made by Chevron. its an additive used to make the gas burn more clean and keeps valves clean. also if you have a garage or frequently use one you might consider using Heat. frequently pulling a vehicle in and out of a garage can cause condensation in the gas tank creating a mixture of water in there. which will make the vehicle hesitate or run bad

How do i calculate petrol rates for a Nissan 3.3V6engine


Fill her up and write down mileage,when fuel tank gets low.fill up again and write mileage down and how many gallons you put in,then subtract small number from large number then divide how many gallons were put in the second time to get mpg average.

Opel corsa problems


now! no doubt you fuel up at Tesco's, whether your car is petrol or diesel your injectors will be clogging, get some injector cleaner, put that in your tank run your car for a good few miles, I mean a lot, I had same problem in my Jaguar just recently, a couple of bottles of jet cleaner in with fuel when I went to fuel up, 1 week later smooth as a baby's.

I hope this solves your problem, it the cheapest way to start diagnosing.

1999 ford escort 1300cc manual.. cloggs, jumps, backfires


All of these problems point to a fuel delivery problem.
The fact that a fuel treatment helped, leads me to believe its a dirty fuel system. Also, the cold start problem is an enrichment problem, as there has to be a richer mixture to fire when its cold than hot.
First thing to check is the fuel filter that may be located in the fuel tank.

Sounds like a plugged fuel filter. You might have dislogged some "crud" when removing the lines, etc... Can't be 100% sure without doing a test on the fuel system.
Good Luck.

Hi there ive got aproblem with fuel tank ran low 3 litres in it car exelerates in neutral but looses power in gear ive changed fuel filter and filled up with diesel do i need too bleed fuel pump or filter


all veedub have self bleeding systems, if smokey, try a fuel additive redexe/wynns to see if you get any improvement first.check filter is still clean after 100/200 miles,pipe may have got bits in it.... (i put a gallon of petrol in 10 gallons of diesel and the difference after was amazing,although you have to be gentle,no hard acceleration/heavy loads for 200 miles)

You are suggested to check if your car battery is fine. check out the terminal on the car battery both positive and negitive. then check if all plug wire are properly into the plugs. This are the few problem which causes such problems.

Ran out of gas wont start now


if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure
