Question about Cars & Trucks
Now the car dies when your not accelerating, when your cruising or coming to a stop it wants to die
The fuel pump that is used in your car is inside the fuel tank, it is dependant for cooling and lubrication on the gas that it pumps and sits in, when you run the gas tank near empty or dry you damage the pump, this causes the pump to freeze up or run slow, which is what you may have going on. Have the fuel pressure checked, i will bet it is below specification. If so replace the pump and the fuel filter.

this sounds like a mass air flow sensor problem. they make a cleaner for the m.a.f. try that first and see if your problem goes away. if not you might have to replace the m.a.f.

Mine did this same behavior. Look for the detailed fix instructions for shortening the cover screws on the ECM located on the firewall, passenger side. This worked great for me.

It sounds like you may have gotten a Tank of Contaminated Fuel. Try to Run a Can of B12 Chemtool through the Fuel Tank and see if it will not Clear up. You can get the B12 Chemtool at Wal-Mart in the Automotive Section or at Your Local Autoi Parts Store.

The alternator must be check for its DC output. Check with a voltmeter the main output wire (the fatest one) just put the probe on the nut that holds the large usually red wire on to the back of the alternator. Your battery probably needs to be recharged in order to start the car, run the car and check the output of alternator it should read 14 volts if so the alternator is good, make sure you don't have the two smaller wires mixed up on the back of the alternator, also the belt tension should be checked and the battery terminals cleaned.
