Bad fuel pump or plugged fuel filter is first things to trouble shoot. Can you hear the electric fuel pump come on when you turn the key to ACC? If you can and the engine is getting fuel, are you getting a funny smell from the exhaust as a collapsed catalytic converter can also make it feel like you are getting lack of fuel.

    Hi - my son's mitsubishi will start but it will not rev-up at all - we checked the throtle cable and it works..we had the starter changed and drove it 3 house lengths to park in our driveway as it needed a new radiator. Now that we have had the radiator replaced it will start but it won't rev-up.

What is if car acts like its out of gas?

Maybe it's out of gas! Also a choked fuel filter can behave the same. Also a weak fuel pump can act the same.

Car acts like it runs out of gas

Hi: Try changing the fuel filter, Also check the gas tank vent, when it stalls loosen the gas cap and try to start it again it may not be lack of fuel but when you open the cap you are reliving the vacuum from the tank, after you close the cap the vacuum will build again.It can also be the gas cap if it is vented. Good Luck /AL

sounds like bad gas. go to local Napa parts tore and buy something called Sea Foam and put it in tank. It will work wonders.
