    1995 ford taurus, runs for about 3 or 4 miles and then just dies. lights, etc stay on. Will restart immediately but keeps dying out while driving.

    WHat do you mena by - it will run from an outside power source?

    Maybe you got a bad load of fuel with water? Or, got diesel fuel by mistake from the pump.

    Did it run ok before that fuel fill up? IF yes, call the gas station and tell them what happened. If there was a problem, a lot of others will have called the station too. May have to have tank drained & refilled.

    Need more info from you to go further. good luck

Drives fine for about 5 miles then starts to lose power then eventually dies. pull over alongside the road, cycle the key about 6 times, then it drives fine for bout 1 mile and does it all over again


This could be due to a fuel system problem, perhaps a clogged fuel filter. Since any debris in your gas tank would be settled to the bottom for the initial startup, the fuel pump picks up clean gas and has no problem supplying the injectors. As you drive, the circulation of the gas from the tank through the filter could cause the filter to plug up with debris, gradually losing power until fuel pressure is not sufficient to keep the car running. Try replacing the fuel filter and running some fuel injector cleaner through with your next fill-up.

Air in fuel line. changed all the filters. put a new in-line filter before the fuel pump. engine runs for a few miles and then dies. i have to bleed the air out of the fuel pump and then it will start and...


I'm a little confused. You changed all the fuel filters? How many do you have? If you have a late model vehicle, then your fuel pump is in the fuel tank. How did you put an in line filter before the pump. Is your vehicle gas or diesel?

Ford 460 loses power then dies. Starts back up. Idles fine.


It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

Engine wont stay running. Please help.


change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.

you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.

1995 dodge van falls down when the fuel tank gets to 1/4 of fuel


sounds like a possible pluged fuel filter or a tired fuel pump. the pump is cooled by the gas. so if you work it at 1/4 tank or below it tends to get hot. but towing may make it hot anyway. check fuel pressure and the replace the fuel filter
