The easiest thing to do to make sure is to take your car to Autozone. They will do a free "check engine" scan on your car to get the codes of problems. Then will let you know what each code (if more than one) is for.

to start out with, change any fuel filters you can find. Change the air filter out, too. Once all the filters have been changed out, add a small amount of "SeaFoam" to the fuel, and see if it helps any.

I would run the fuel pump for a little while with the fuel line disconnected from the engine into a gas can . Although you might have changed everything you might still have residual water in lines or motor. I would still put dry gas in the tank

Plugs and wires are a good start, if they haven't been replaced for a while. I would change the fuel filter and check the air filter. The fuel filter is often overlooked. The ones I change, you wouldn't believe the dirt that's in them.

Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down


Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.

Wont stay running unless you give it gas


Clogged fuel filter.
Turn the truck all the way off.
Disconnect the two lines at the top and bottom of the fuel filter -fuel will start to run out of the upper line.
put in a new fuel filter being careful to get the flow direction correct.
crank the engine awhile until it starts.
If the problem persists it could possibly be clogged fuel injectors or a faulty idle speed sensor.

My 1987 Toyota Tercel will not run. It will start, but wont stay crunk unless im giving it gas. I check for vacuum leaks and no sucess.?


if you have a carburator then you have a blocked idle jet, simple job unscrew **** dirt out clean jet hole through, replace, (change or fit fuel filter to prevent it happening again. )
to tune is simple replace jet start motor and warm up . when at operating temp turn jet out and then in till motor runs rough then screw back out til motor smooth out , and runs sweet, if it cuts out when slowing car down (while driving) screw need to come out a slight bit more
