Bad fuel, water in the fuel, dirt in the fuel.

Drain the fuel tank completely.

Pour in a gallon or two of fresh fuel.

See how it goes.

Put some of the old fuel in a glass bottle, hold it up in front of a light and see if you can see any foreign material in it...

My daughter has a 1996 cavalier 2.2l and it has a rough idle like a lug sound it runs fine and everything sounds great going down the road but just when it idles its a bit rough We changed the fuel pump in...


The fuel filter is only about 5 bucks worth of work/material. Most of the time you have to get 3/8 fuel line and clamps and a filter with male adapters and just cut out the old one. But it's still a 20 minute job. Also try some dry gas or fuel treatment. If you change it and it's still acting up I think a Vacuum leak or a weak coil is the culprit. Hope this helps.

I took the car into the dealer again to have the coolant topped off. They did the computer hookup again, as they have done each time...this time, when they pressure tested the coolant system, it failed the test. From there they found out that the coolant in leakin inside of the engine and leaks into the fuel injectors...they told me the problem is not fixable...except by replacing the engine.

1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L. V6 Engine runs beautifully but after 16-20 miles highway driving engine stalls as if flooded, or as if fuel is cut-off. After sitting for a few minutes, will start and run...


the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

1993 sentra jerking problems.


I wanted to just give a suggestion...do you go to the same gas station to get gas? My sentra ran horrible because I kept going to this same gas station. My gas would get low and it would start cutting off and trying to cut off. I let my fuel go to almost empty and then went to another gas station to fill up. It hasnt cut of for about 6 months now and I havent returned to that gas station.
