    Car won,t stay running unless I turn ignition with starter turning and gas pumping all the way through

    I have a similar issue. It wont stay started unless i push the gas. this usually occurs after it has rained outside. Mechanics keep saying it is the environmental box. I've had it replaced twice and it still has this problem. any suggestions?

    Does the check engine light come on before the problems start? Does it seem to run fine until it warms up?

    Do you run your car until the gas tank is almost empty?

    Do you use a fuel injector or carb cleaner regularly?

    Note: Always read auto additive labels completely. Carburetor cleaner will burn out the seals in a fuel injected car and a gas fuel system cleaner put into a diesel will cause a total fuel system problem.

    When your running out of gas the dirt, grime, gunk and sometimes water is all you have left and that will cause problems. Cars may surge then slow down irrelevant to the gas pedal pressure. You may have to hold the gas pedal down to feed it enough gas to go.
    The problem will not be as bad when you warm up with a new tank of gas.

    I once had Jetta that would sputter and almost stall at idle. One day I ran out of gas in front of a K-Mart so I went into the K-Mart and got 4 cans of cheap fuel cleaner to get me to the closest gas station.........I NEVER HAD THAT PROBLEM AGAIN!

    For problems like these it's worth the $20 to add fuel cleaner and/or dry gas to your tank. Then fill it up and don't let it go below 1/4 tank!

    Good Luck!

1984 Mercedes Benz 500 sel hard to start fuel pump is working pour gas down throat run for a minute then it cut's off what else could be wrong

Fuel pump. It can run. But it also can not put out enough pressure. You have already proven it by putting gas down the throttle.

Air conditioner stops when i accelerate rapidly

The air cond compressor is supposed to stop, but only if the gas pedal is pushed to the floor.
If it is cutting off and the pedal is not all the way down, you could have a problem with the throttle position sensor.
Cutting off during hard acceleration gives you a few more horsepower.
