My car sometimes sputters when it first starts then the rpms will increase to 3 by its self and there are times that the car wont start or it stalls out
replace fuel ilter/ add can of SEAFOAM(parts store) to full tank of PREMIUM gas(just this once)/ let car idle for 2 min. drive for approx 10 miles. change fuel filter again. then change plugs.<p>
you may need to change oxygen sensor. add SEAFOAM to your fuel 3-5000 miles, and this should help tons.<p>
you have what is called ETHANOL gas syndrome. the ethanol is a corn derivative/ the heat and the gas actually create a type of corn liquor(I know; but it's the truth), and alcohol creates water in your fuel, your emissions, and causes carbon build up inside your engine, It turns the fuel to a choc. milk looking goop that's all through out your system. for some unknown reason; it's worse in GM products. Trust me; the last 2 years, I sold more GM fuel pumps than in the past 10.<p>
But try to do this. It will clean out your system, and if you stick on a schedule with the SEAFOAM, it will help your car; well; tremendously.
