Could be low fuel pressure, or a problem with the throttle position sensor. The fuel pressure would be checked with a gauge and the tps with a meter.

2000 chevy blazer gas pushes out of the filler necker while pumping gas

if you are having problems filling the gas it could be a couple things. first the pumps at the gas station over fill at a fast speed, try slowing them down and try moving the hose back a little to give it some breathing space instead of shoving it all the way in the gas area. next is try a different gas station, believe it or not there is a difference.

When i give the car gas in wants to stal out and wont go

here are a few things that can do that to a car, the first and most important is the gas pump which could be breaking down, loosing psi. Secondly your plugs might need to be changed, etc plug wires. And the last thing is if your electrical wiring is damage it could cause current to break down while the veichle is driving causing it to stall .

My Saab 900 se turbo 2.0l 4 cylinder Stals out when I push down on the gas pedal. If I release soon enough it cuts back in. any solutions?

Likely has a vacuum hose leak. The hoses all die from the massive heat generated by the turbo engines. Check all the ones on the throttle for cracks.

98 ford zx2 2.0 dohc stalls out woulnt idle long & doesnt pick up power when you push gas if you push gas fast will backfire.will gain rpms if gas is pushed slow

It sounds like you may have a clogged-up catalytic converter. Try cracking the exhaust loose at the flange in front of the engine where the Catalytic converter bolts to the exhaust manifold. You don't have to take it all the way down, just 1/2" or so. You may have to take the bolt loose on the bracket where the pipe mounts to the oil pan to get the cat to drop down. After you get it down a ways, start it up and see if it runs better. (It will be very loud) If it idles and accelerates without dying or backfiring, then your cat is clogged up.

Will not idle but runs when you hold the gas pedal down when you let off the gas its spits and sputters then stals

you need to adjust the idle to run higher. its not to hard to do, you just have to locate the idle control. you can find it by looking under the hood while someone presses the gas a couple times, you should see it move. All you have to do is tighten the cable that is connected to it,.. a little at a time until you get the desired idle. careful not to over adjust it, or you will idle to high and waste gas, and over work the enjine on very hot day's or very cold day's.

Will not run

You might want to look at the fuel pump and check your fuel filter and fuel lines and flush the tank.

Idles to fast

Sounds like a vaccum leak at the throttle body or the intake. check for loose lines hissing with the motor running. Had a brake booster line come loose on my 92 and it ran at about 3000 rpms.
