Question about 2006 Chrysler Sebring
I have a 2006 Sebring. It gets driven ALOT. A couple days ago I ran out of gas, but the car drove fine once I filled the tank. Then a few days after that, it started sputtering and lurching when I would try to accellorate. It does this for about 15 minutes every morning and the check engine light comes on. I can avoid the sputter and lurch movement if I take off at a very slow pace, then can accellorate as normal once the car his 15 to 20mph. After the 15 minute mark, the car runs fine from take off to destination but the check engine light stays on. Which part of the fuel system can it be? The tranny is not slipping and it seems that once gas is "pushed" through the system for a minute, the car is fine? Any suggestions?
Actually if you ran your car out of gas no amount of fuel anti freeze will fix it. It might hide the problem though. i would very highly reccomend changing your fuel filter because when you run out of gas your fuel pump picks up all the dirt and stuff in the bottom of your fuel tank and cloggs up the filter. So adding anything that increases the octane will hide the problem but ir is no fix

Two baic reasons... you can buy it... not on purpose of course but water gets into the gas station tanks for a couple reasons.
second if you happen to live in an area where fall is fast approaching and the temperature is changing during the day/evening you'll get condensation. just to give you an example.... when you go out in the morning to jump in your car you'll see a layer of moisture on your car.... it's not restricted to the outside of the car. one way to avoid that is to keep your tank completely filled with gas. considering the price of gas you would need to take out a second mortgage on your home to do that.
it's handy to buy a six pack of those little bottles of gas line antifreeze and keep them in your trunk... every time you fill up the tank add one.
pretty much any auto store will have them.... even walmart etc will have them as well.
