Have you ever changed the fuel filter? If it's not that, and it's not a vacuum leak, it is probably your idle air control valve.

SOURCE: when slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies

Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?

You have checked the fuel pressure? Do you have a check engine light? As for the tank filling up the wrong one, that is caused from a bad tank select valve on the frame rail.

Testimonial: "when ive checked the pressure it was good, and ive replaced the select valve maybe its defective, thx man"

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Sonata with 4

P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected.

Possible Causes:
- Improper spark plug at cylinder #1
- Insufficient compression at cylinder #1
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted at cylinder #1
- Fuel injector #1 may be faulty
- Intake air leak at cylinder

Possible Solutions:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replaced Spark Plug #1
- Replaced Injector #1
- Replaced Ignition Coil #1

Being you have a heavy gas smell I would look into the injectors. If injector #1 is over producing it can cause a misfire. Test your compression and fuel pressure.

My 2003 Astro van has been running fine the I got gasmonday night and as I pulled out the gas station it spit and sputtered like I got bad gas or trash in filter, then it started working fine.


Mass air flow sensor maybe drity or going bad . Ever had it replaced ? Have you replaced the air filter lately ? Video's on youtube showing how to clean mass air flow sensor , you would have to buy a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner . Also while your at it clean the throttle plate , again there are videos on youtube . How did you check fuel pump ? To do it right you would need to hook up a pressure gauge . Also check flow .Videos on youtube .Has the check engine light come on ? Also you mite try some fuel injector cleaner and or dry gas for moisture in the fuel !

Will idle but when ingage clutch and give it gas it spits and sputters and dies?


Sounds like coil packs are shot! Suggest replace and it should run great. The coil pack it what sets the fuel injectors to perform at peak proficiency on post 1990s cars because they did away with the distributor & rotor (use to be able to just turn distributor to rev it up or down "my wife use to be able to adjust the old ones".)

Best guess is O2 sensor is reading too much unburned fue in the exhaust for some reason and leaning out the fuel flow to compensate. Runs when you throw more throttle at it but leans out as you try to hold steady speed. Should throw a code though.

I have a 2005 dodge grand caravan. It stalls, spits and sputters. Its like it tachs out at 3000rpm. I need to figure out how to check the engine code? It wont start so i can't take it to advanced auto or...


This was possible in the older ones the newer cars are not that way, a scan tool is the only way to get the codes that i know of but anyway this problem you are having sounds like a fuelpump problem, try a quick trick, have someone try to start it while you beat on the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber hammer, see if it starts, if it does then the pump is bad, sometimes shake it will make contact and get pump going, i thing this is why there was no power and the sputters and spits.

Check MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR , try to get a used one and fit to the car , it is very easy to install. And by the way the MASS is the part that is in connection with the air filter , the one that has an electrical connector. When installing make sure that it is tight and no leaks. This answer was based on your description and code supplied hope this would help

Replaced fuel filter & fuel pump and screen.


not positive but in the air breather there is a mass air flow sensor and sometimes air filter particles gets stuck on the sensor.It will look like a white piece of lint,if there is be careful to remove it and try it.Usually a backfire and sputtering is the signs

Car sputters or dies when idling, but starts fine.


I suspect you have an idle circuit issue. When the thottle is closed, the throttle valve is almost closed (like 95%). The linkage on the throttle body is against the hard stop.
SO, when idling you need a way to let enough air into the engine to maintain an idle speed. The IAC, Idle Air Control valve is the way you do that and the engine computer controls the rate of air flow.
Sometimes it gets plugged up so you can clean it with a little carb cleaner. Might have to take it apart.
Also, you have a MAF, Mass Air Flow sensor that tells the computer how much air is flowing through the air cleaner intake at any time. The sensor gets coated with varnish and vies a false reading. Clean it gently with carb cleaner and a toothbrush.
Other than that, I would go to an auto parts store that can run a computer scan for free to see if you have any fault codes stored. They will tell you next stpes.

I assume you 2.0L SPI engine & not Zetec.

  1. Disconnect the idle air control (IAC) valve electrical connector (air cleaner outlet tube removed for clarity).
