Sputering after can of seafoam cleaner

After I put a can of seafoam cleaner in my gas it started sputtering real bad. It stalled one day so I changed fuel filter and put some shell fuel additive and I got it to start again and after a few miles it stoped doing it so much but it is still sputters below 2500 rpm

If the sputter got real bad, I could smell what smelled like weed eater gas inside the cabin. As you could also imagine, there is a loss of power.

you might have bad gas when it sits for months the gas will separate. best to do is run all the gas out of it till it stops running. have a 2 gallon or 5 gallon gas can with you and fill it up when it finally stops. the other thing you can look for is a rust ground. I had this problem with a saab 9-3 took me months to figure it out. the battery and alternator you can go to any local parts store and have them test the charging system to see if there is any problems

Check your fuel filter again. Dirt from the tank could have clogged it again.

With electric pumps, when you run them dry it can damage them. You may have just picked up some rust or stuff sitting in the bottom of the tank. This could be clogging your fuel supply. several things can be done, if so equipped have the injectors cleaned, add a fuel cleaner to your tank such as seafoam, change fuel filters. If it were me I would start with the seafoam, than filter or filters. Than you may consider checking fuel pressure. Just somewhere to start good luck

My car sometimes sputters when it first starts then the rpms will increase to 3 by its self and there are times that the car wont start or it stalls out

replace fuel ilter/ add can of SEAFOAM(parts store) to full tank of PREMIUM gas(just this once)/ let car idle for 2 min. drive for approx 10 miles. change fuel filter again. then change plugs.<p>
you may need to change oxygen sensor. add SEAFOAM to your fuel 3-5000 miles, and this should help tons.<p>
you have what is called ETHANOL gas syndrome. the ethanol is a corn derivative/ the heat and the gas actually create a type of corn liquor(I know; but it's the truth), and alcohol creates water in your fuel, your emissions, and causes carbon build up inside your engine, It turns the fuel to a choc. milk looking goop that's all through out your system. for some unknown reason; it's worse in GM products. Trust me; the last 2 years, I sold more GM fuel pumps than in the past 10.<p>
But try to do this. It will clean out your system, and if you stick on a schedule with the SEAFOAM, it will help your car; well; tremendously.
