I have a 92 Lebaron Convertable with a v6 3.0 It starts when the engine is cold but once it heats up, the engine sputters and it dies. It will not start again until it gets cold.

It sounds like it is getting too much fuel. check your fuel sensor. Your choke is sticking open. Buy some carb cleaner. Remove your air filter and spray the linkage to clean it up. Make sure it moves easy. Start your car up. the butter fly on top of the carb will be closed all the way. As the motor warms up this should open up gradually. If it doesn't you have a problem with the choke system and it is not letting air in as the motor warms up.

My 95 3L Lebaron Dies when the car is stopped. It starts then dies immediately, after many cranks with lots a gas it will run. Only happens when cold.


I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off. My info says 48 psi.
How long since over-all tune up?

I have a 92 Toyota paseo and it starts but sputters and dies when I putnit into first gear? What could be the problem?


I once had a problem like this one, the car started but when i put in on drive the engine died.
This was because the engine moved when put in drive, and a ground to the injectors was lose, so just got it tight and problem fixed.

Start your engine and move the harness a bit if it dies there's a lose wire.

Hope this helps. Good luck..

My dodge dakota 4.7 starts without any problem and runs great for approximately one minute. It then starts floundering and will die. You can turn it off or wait for it to die, and restart it and it runs...


Sounds like you have a restricted fuel filter that is causing your vehicle to start sputtering because it can't meet the engine's demand for fuel and then dies when fuel is depleted. After your vehicle stops running, fuel starts seeping by and you can start it again with ease hot or cold and you get the same results moments later if this sounds right replace your fuel filter.

The engine sputters and dies when it heats up. Is this Vapor lock? On cold start it works great and idles just fine but as it heats, the engine starts choking and soon dies out. If this is vapor lock, how...


sounds like the reason it starts and idles fine at start up is your choke is functioning... as your vehicle warms up.. the choke starts to kick off... Inspect your throttle body and idle control motor.

92 lebaron convertable. When it rains, the top


If you out the top down, on the windshield side posts you will see a small drain tube on each side. When these cars age the sealant used around the drain tubes rends to get crushed and distorted and tends to cover these tubes not allowing the water to drain down the A posts. This causes the water to back up and run down the inside of the A post and under the dash and onto the floor. It's also possible that the window seals are in need of replacement or adjustment.

Truck after engine gets hot starts sputtering


You're getting a condition known as "vapor lock" or hydrostatic lock. This happens when you run your fule lines too close to a heat source (exhaust, engine, etc). You can solve it by re-routing it away from those heat sopurces...this should help.
