CLEAN THE JETS. Run the carburetor out of fuel, then remove it from the intake. Remove the fuel bowl and inspect. If there is debris and varnish you will need to soak the carburetor in acid to clean it. Rebuild it if you truly need to. Save all gaskets if possible. Clean of of the jets, remove them individually and clean the orifices. Connect transparent tygon fuel line to the existing fuel line. The remaining fuel needs to be removed. Do what it takes to evacuate all of the fuel from the tank. Use only fresh 93 octane fuel for carbureted engines. reinstall rebuilt carburetor using a new intake gasket if necessary. fill carburetor with fresh fuel and crank it over. Allow engine to warm up, adjusting idle and low speed adjustment screws. With engine completely warmed up test drive and adjust as necessary.

My car starts and then cuts off and hesitates when im driving and stalls


It sounds like you have some dirt in your gas tank or your fuel pump has one of your fuel lines have a crack init and sucking air . Good luck and let me know how you do. Your fuel pump is proubly below the trunk floor. remove the carpet and the bolts in the floor. number your hoses and remove the fuel pump. Use a ohm meter and ohm out the pump, or take it to auto parts and they will check it out for you. snor38@gmail.com

Motor hesitates, doesn't get good fuel flow


If you can smell gas that means air can get in the fuel system. Look for a cracked rubber line at or near the fuel tank.

Ran out of gas which sucked water into the fuel line. put 10 gallons in and it started after a long wait and drove like 1/4 mile before dieing again like it was outta gas. waited over night and it started...


Forget the sea foam
What exactly do you believe that would do & how?
How & where did water get into the fuel system
If it is in the tank, you have to remove it & clean it
If you ran out off fuel the pump may be shot
Did you check fuel pressure & volume at the motor
With fuel injection there is no bleeding to do, the fuel
& air goes into the cylinder when the injectors open

My truck wont start unless i prime the carborator first, then it wont stay running unless i rev it high just before i put it in gear, or im accellerating...


To start with, you have a throttle body instead of a carburetor.
On that throttle body is a component called an air control valve.
That valve is how the computer controls the idle speed. It should open and close the air flow into the intake manifold as needed.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ? Have you checked the fuel pressure ?

When i press on the gas peddle the car hesitates and jerks. If I do it slowly it doesn't do this... But, you can't press hard on the gas peddle or it will hesitate.


I think your car is runing Lean and i would say check the Mass air flow sensor and the fuel system because your car seems like its sucks more air then fuel. Do you have any check engine light on ?

My 1992 dodge dakota wont run. i will start it but i will have to feather the gas to keep it alive. it has over a half a tank of gas in it can you help me?


when was this vehicle as serviced?
this could one of several issues.

1 the idle jet on the carborator maybe dirty so the engine is not getting enough fuel at tickover to keep running.
2 the fuel filter is blocking up and may need replacment.
3. the carborator may need an overhaul as the float chamber is not activating correctly.
4. fuel cap may be blocked give a run with the fuel cap off see if that helps. if you get aload hiss each time you fill up that indiates a blocked fuel cap which will need clearing or replacing.
5. dirt in the fuel line if filled from jerry cans contaminents can get in th tank and block the line. when you put pressure on the gas this causes higher vacum from the pump and hides the problem.
6 airfilter may be blocking and needs replacement so there is not enough air at ldle.
7 check plugs if they are sooty or covered in white then the mix is wrong and needs resetting. or indicats reduced fuel or air to engine.
8. plugs may need replacement.

2003 escalade will not start after running it out of gas


My wife ran out of gas once and I had to bleed the fuel lines of air that had been sucked in before gas would travel through the lines. Kinda like you would have to bleed air out of hydraulic brake lines.
