Car cranks but will not stay on after I hit the accelarator.
I filled my car up on yesterday afternoon and after doing so, my car stalled out. It started sputtering and cut off once I tried to give it gas. I then put the car in neutral and reved it up and snatched it in drive rally quick and just kind of patted the accelarator. Why

STALLS, was it running perfect yesterday? shoe drops.?
the car never had that new.
so what is the real story, every fact , relevant.?
my guess UN-installed it, ?
stalls, it crank, then runs, then stalls.
My guess is the ECU has a wrong input
or you are losing spark or fuel.
what i do is find out which it is first. by testing and observations.
i check spark first. because i know the ECU cuts fuel if it sees spark is bad, never check fueling first.
if spark is good, times all cylindes, I then do fueling
see if it is in cut fuel mode, (ECU)
Not CAM or Crank angle sensor.. Try check supply fuel line pressure n spark plug n ignition coil output.. the ignition coil output should be blue spark n spark jump at least half inch.. But be careful coz its hi tension..
Cranks and starts are two different things. If it cranks but won't start it could be loosing fuel pressure overnight. If it won't crank in the morning, you could have a bad cell in the battery or something draining the battery overnight. Such as the interior lights coming on and off. The light problem could be the door ajar sensor in the door latch.
The first thing you need done here is to have the dealer or a shop scan the ECM (computer) for fault codes, this could be just a defective electronic engine control sensor like a crankshaft sensor or a defective ICM (ignition module). So before you do anything else have the scan done with the special scan tool required.
crank or cam sensor will cause this. have car scanned to find the proper code. if you do not have a scanner, any auto parts store will scan it for free. if need be let me know the code, best of luck Toolman,
