If you have a gas can try adding some in case you have been a victim of theft. If the tank seems full, then it is possible that water was mixed with the fuel.

Water and gas have different buoyancy rates and the float could have dropped.

SOURCE: 97 Saturn SL1 leaking antifreeze, high RPMs, uses excessive gas

wow it sounds like you have a few problems going on. One, your idle speed is set too high and needs to be lowered. Two, i would replace your temperature sensor so that you can monitor your overheating. As well as try and see where the leaking is coming from (i.e. the radiator cap, on the radiator itself, or where the hoses run into the engine-could be engine temperature sensor). Three, if you have to prime your engine at first to get it to run then more than likely fuel pump is going bad.

96 Benz ran out of gas other day, got it filled up & drove home (20 miles). Next day drove about 40 miles, left car running in park for about 15 min, when I left car was stalling like it was running o


You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

Very hard to diagnose without trouble codes, but sounds like a fuel problem - bad gas, fuel filter plugging, fuel pressure regulator acting up, etc. I would certainly check fuel pressure at the engine with key on but not started, and then while trying to start.

Started ... it shut right off... restarted let sit and warm up some... drove it about 12 miles... it seemed to have no power... filled up with gas... drove back and check engine light came on... still no...


The problem is with the spark plug or in the starter . Otherwise the area you are living in may be causing this problem as the engine gets damaged during start up.

Engine temp gage spikes to 260 degree when


are you sure the cooling fans are working?
Is the coolant temp gauge telling the truth?
have you lifted the hood and heard the coolant bubbling into the overflow?
Or heard the tinging sound of a red hot engine?
If he did a liquid test with the dye,and it changed colors it should have changed very fast,
Another thing to think about if he was to take the fan belt off,and pull the thermostat housing off,and removed the thermostat,Now pour coolant into the thermostat hole to almost the top,Now start the car and see which side the bubbles come from,left or right,that will be the gasket that is leaking not both.

1997 saab 9000cs 2.3t won't start;2 days ago stopped and bought fuel,drove aprox 10 miles and noticed car sluggish up hill and would not take any more gas,no matter how much further I pushed on the gas...


Just a thought. How low was the tank when you filled up. I know alot of sediment builds up and have heard of similar problems. So I have made a habbit not to go below 1/4 tank to prevent from clogging the fuel system. That is what I would check. It sound like you have a good hold on the mechanical aspect. Verify your fuel inlet screen at the tank or the filter is not clogged. Only other thing I can reccomend after that is have a reputable shop do a systematic pressure check on the lines starting from the fuel source. Good luck.

I left my truck rest for 12 days when I returned and drove it 50 miles the battery light came on and the elecrical gauge dropped to between 9 and 14. I drove it home another 34 miles and when I got home...


Likely a battery problem. Batteries tend to fail when they sit for a while. If your electrical guage was reading 9 - 14, with a dead battery, the alternator was working. Also, if the alternator was dead, you'd likely have noticed dimming headlights and other electrical issues.

But, you could take the battery to AutoZone and let them check it - free.

Sounds as if the head gasket is leaking compression pressures into the cooling system. It seems that this problem has just occurred recently. This can be checked at your rad shop. They have a tool that uses a chemical solution that changes color if there is any engine gases present in the coolant.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
