This sounds like an alternator problem. first chechk wires on alternator and starter make sure they are nice n tight , clean batt terminals and check engine and chassis ground . if you have a volt meter check n see if the alternator is charging minimum 13.2 v anything less is no good allso if it is above 13.2 then turn your lights n a/c on iv voltage drops then alternator is bad.

TRUCK BATTERY DIES,STARTS WHEN JUMPED BUT WONT STAY RUNNING WITHOUT FOOT ON GAS


Some models have to be retaught how to idle once the battery dies, so you need to start the truck and feather the gas peddle to keep it running and do this for a few minutes, the computer has to relearn how to idle the engine.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

I have a 1999 Kia sportage, at first it acted sluggest. then when you put your foot on the gas peddle it would die. then started acting like it wasn't getting enought gas to the engine. We changed to...


have you tried the throtle control sensor. It is cheap and would have a lot to do with the issue you are haveing. It is right up on the top of the engine left side, easy to get to. Two screws, pop it off and on with the new one. Also throw in some Lucas fuel system cleaner good to keep up with that on a regular basis. Hope it helps!

2001 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor cranks but wont stay on unless your giving it gas. I put my ear to the gas tank and can here a clicking sound. Could it be the could it be a fuse, fuel pump...


No if it starts but you have to keep your foot on the gas to keep it running and then it dies when you take your foot off the pedal the fuel pump is working otherwise no gas at all if it was not working the throttle position sensor is bad the contact in the sensor is worn out at idle spot but when you first star it the sensor is in a different position and with your foot on the gas you can keep it running right racing like a normal engine but if no gas peddle it won't run if you just turn the key to start like normal but there's also a possibility that the idle air control valve is shot to both are on the throttle body you can look at them at rockauto.Com I'm assuming that your using premium gas and your throttle body is clean if not clean it out and see what happens before you spend $$$ on parts and check all your vacuum lines

When push brakes you have to push really hard to make them go in then the truck barely stops. Replaced the MC and bled the brakes now every time push brakes truck acts like its going to die. Brake light...


Sounds like you will have to bleed your brakes again, but thats not the problem og hard brake peddle, need to check your power brake booster, sit right in back of master cylinder, check make sure it has vacum going to it, also to test it with engine off, press on brake peddle three time, then state engine with foot on peddle, peddle should go down a few inches, also with engine of peddle should feel soft for three pumps, if you have none of this , power brake booster is bad.

Truck starts but won't stay running


You may have a problem with the contacts in the ignition switch (not key part), when you crank the engine a signal is sent to the fuel pump to run, when it starts and you let off the key another set of contacts keeps the pump getting power Through a relay), these are known as crank and run modes.
