Without knowing anymore about your driving habits or how long it's been since a fill up, the first thing that comes to mind would be the gas cap. It sounds like you (or whomever filled you up) may not have locked the gas cap properly. This will cause a difference in pressure and will essentially throw a code.

My camaro stalls when its cold and hesitates when i push the accelerator


Sounds kinda like the engine is leaning out. Is it a 1990 or a 1997? Is the check engine light on? For 1990s, an inexpensive key can be purchased at a parts store that you can plug into the ALDL (Diagnostic Port) and then count the flashes of your check engine light to read codes. I would change the fuel filter too, just because it's easy and cheap. You may want to check the fuel pressure. If it's a '90, the regulators go bad easily and is surprisingly easier than you may think. - MUCH easier that rebuilding an old-school carb! Could also be the pump- hope not! Don't let it run low on gas if you can help it. the gas in the tank acts as a coolant for the motor that drives the fuel pump. GOOD LUCK

2002 Honda CR-V stalls, mostly when the gas tank gets low (aka light on) but not only then. Engine will not stay on unless its constantly gassed, when I come to lights, I put it in neutral and gas it


water in fuel. put some water remover or gas line antifreeze in and keep tank full. the reason its worse after sitting is because the water sinks to bottom of tank and then the car is trying to run on just water. after driving it mixes with fuel

Run good till the check engine light go off


Check the fuel lines under the car. Don't actually start the car though, just turn the key until you hear the fuel pump turn on. This will load the fuel system and you will be able to see leaks (or sprays) under the car because of the pressure. If there are no leaks, see if the car runs perfect with a full tank of gas compared to a low tank. It should drive good turning left, but it might **** turning right or after a sudden stop. This could mean you have a crack in the seams of your gas tank or that your fuel pump is going bad (or a little of both).

My son's 2004 Kia Optima started stalling on the highway. 1st he noticed the RPMs drop then come back up. This happened several times before the car finally stalled. After a couple attempts, it...


Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.

Car stalls out while stopped for a red light and


hi, the problem your having sounds like its something to do with the fuel, the first thing to try would be by buying a fuel additive that you pour into the tank you can buy this from most petrol stations just make sure you buy the correct type ie petrol or diesel then follow the instructions on the bottle.

You will then need to give the car a good run doing this should solve your problme but make sure you give it a good run as it takes a while to run through the whole fuel system ok.

If after doing this you are still having problems then i would give the car a full service replace all filters, plugs etc to ensure their is no muck causing any problems.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Everytime I run my car low on fuel then add more,whether I fill it up or not,it starts missing and the 'service engine soon' light comes. WE thought it was something to do with the firing system at first...


You've got water in your tank. There are fuel additives that remove water from the gas tank that work very well. As you run the tank low, all the water and other "junk" that collect on the bottom of the tank are now being injected into your fuel line, causing erratic idling and occasional misfires.

1988 oldsmobile cutlass ciera check engine light on then stalled.


Wow! thats verry low miles for an 88. Check the fuel pressure at the injector. If the pressure is low the filter could be clogged or the pump is not putting out enough pressure. Replace both if the pressure is not up to par. also check the fuel relays.
