Sounds like there may be an issue with the secondary ignition. Check the plugs and wires to see if they are worn out. Spray the wires with soapy water, if you see or hear the snap of electricity coming from them they are bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

SOURCE: Air filter full of fuel

Sounds like your injectors are going bad. It concerns me that you have a odor of gas in the trunk since all of the fuel lines run under the car. Check your fuel filler line for a leak.

SOURCE: Car starts and runs for about 10-15 seconds and

it sounds as if your fuel pump is bad. depending on how many miles you have on the car, the fuel filter may be clogged. this is usually located along the back of frame rail, usually on the right hand side. replacing this is the cheapest and quickest fix. most people tend to forget the fuel filter, and i've seen cars with over hundred thousand miles and still have the original filter.

SOURCE: pump noise in rear of car keeps running / Gas pump

you might have a leak in the rear suspension load leveler. check connections with soapy water. locate where sound is coming from. fuel pump in tank is a slight hum and not that noticable, but the air comp for load leveler is. Also spray around rubber boots on shocks, also check load leveler switch on axle to frame for broken or loose lever control.

1999 3 cyl. Johnson will not stay running. Has new gas new line from tank


It could be starving if fuel. Increase power, increase demand. Ensure no trash got left or sucked up into the fuel lines during the replacement process. Also ensure you don't have a leak somewhere, either positive or negative. An engine that got a gulp of air in the fuel line can act the same way.

My car seems to be starving for gas


Yes you may replace your fuel filter and check for the adjustment of the carburetor float level. Try also cleaning the whole carb specially the metering orifice and other small passages.

Still starving for fuel after replacement of fuel line and filter.Getting gas to carb but will not stay running?


1990. this should be throttle body injection, you didnt post engine size. Need to check fuel pressure at idle and under load, While driving under hard acceleration. On a carb fuel pressure should be between 4-6.5 psi at all times. TBI should be 9-13 psi. Also on the carbs there is a filter on the carb at the fuel inlet. Need a 1" wrench to remove the line and remove the internal filter.

Intermittent fuel starvation,high rpm at idle restart eng all ok


You should verify you have proper fuel pressure. Check with a gauge when cold and hot. Possible clogged fuel filter is not allowing enough gas to feed engine. Verify pressure at idle and also under load when driving.

How does your run if there is a problem with the fuel pump?


They won't run. If it seems like it's starving for gas, change the fuel filter. Sometimes a fuel pump will get weak, but on a car only 3 years old it shouldn't be.

Runs good until you accelerate then it lacks power it dont miss just alarge power loss in every gear if you let off of the gas its power comes back its about to drive me crazy please help? dwb


I would suggest changing the fuel filter. The engine seems to be starving for fuel and if the filter is pulgged, the engine will bog down under load. Then the engine will run better when coasting because the fuel pressure will build up again.

1993 passat starts but then it loses spark


There is a pre fuel pump in the gas tank that you can get to under a round black cover with three screws in the trunk. That pump transfers fuel to the main pump. Sounds like your main pump is starving for fuel. Not sure if this is your issue but its something to check. have someone crank or start the car if possible and listen to the pre pump. If you put your hand on it you should feel it running.

First thing to check is the fuel filter. It is likely getting clogged and starving the engine for fuel under heavy load.
