I had the same problem happen to me. i had to change the injectors and the injector pump to solve the problem. i would check the lift pump first. when the engine is cold it hasnt had time to pressurize the line.does it restart and run fine when it is warm. if so i would change the lift pump. if not i would have a pressure test done on it. i hope this helps

95 dodge van, 2500. has a BAD engine miss, seems to smooth out when going up hill (giving it some gas) gets bad again when just going cruise speed..


Well to start with, if you have a 1995 Dodge van and it has the original engine, you have a fuel injector for each cylinder. The last year Dodge used a carb was 1987.
So you could have injectors that are not working, or the plugs may not be firing because of the cap or rotor, or it could be a compression or vac problem.
I would want to know which cylinders and then go down the list of possible causes. You should be able to use a vac gauge or tach and pull one wire at a time to find the weak cylinders.

Random misfire


If you replaced the plugs and wires you should know the engine has a distributor cap. The coil is in the bottom of the distributor.
Keep in mind it could be an injector instead of an ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on and have you checked for trouble codes ?

I have a 1997 nissan sentra with 1.6 litter engine. It has 171000 miles. The other day I run my car very low on fuel and went around a sharp curve (345 degrees) when I came out of the curve the car acted...


most likely a bad fuel pump, do you hear it hum when the key is on? fuel pump has to pump 180 pounds of pressure to operatethe motor, some pumps do come on but don't pump enough pressure for car to run.if ou have spark but no run, it's a fuel issue. you wre right o replace the inline filter, that's where i would've started.i suggest you replace that fuel pump. if you disconnect the fuel line at filter@ turn the key on, the gas should shoot out about 20 feet. hop this helps!!

High pitch whining sound from engine


Check the power steering fluid if its low it could cause this. Also could be alternator, water pump, ac compressor, or idler pulley. My bet would be on the idler pulley, its the one that keeps the belt tension constant. Remove the belt and check this pulley for slack also spin it by hand.
Good luck, dont forget to rate.

Car jerks while driving at steady speeds


Did you have the wires replaced also?? If not I would replace both the plugs & the wires all at the same time.You may have carbon tracking on your wires & plugs.What Year is Saturn?? If it's a 91-94 You most likely have a EGR Valve floating due to a weak internal spring.It will cause a surge miss at constant throttle.Hope This Helps!!
