I do not know what engines yu guys have but this does sound like fuel starvation. Replace the fuel filters and go from there

Good Luck

Check the ECU engine temperature sensor. If it thinks the engine is hot, it will struggle to run when cold.

Starts fine then stalls after a couple seconds.


its could be the fuel pump, if its going bad then it could be causing stall and a gas hose could be bad to and is only allowing a little gas to motor causing it to stall also

My 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix will not idle


the computer probably need to relearn the idle-try driving the car for 20-30 minutes,i u can. if that doesnt work,try keeping the car in drive at idle speed if possible without touching the gas pedal-even though it might stall,see if eventually the idle will raise up on its own.hope this helps you.

Stalls after getting gas then starts fine. Also noticed it idles rough at other times. No trouble codes. Any thoughts?


When it stalls after getting gas, are you filling the tank up beyond the first stop? I was filling mine up after the pump shuts itself off in order to top it off as much as possible. I learned this can plug some type of purge vent or something like that. I stopped topping it off and haven't had a problem since. Mine would hesitate and then die at the first couple stop lights after getting gas. From what I've read, the cheap fix is not to fill it up past the stop point, but the permanent fix is to replace the gas tank since the vent physically part of the tank.
