Not quite everything is fine.
Is the check engine light on ?
When you push on the gas pedal, does the engine speed change ?
Can you rev up the engine in park ?
What have you checked so far ?

SOURCE: Altima

My both low beams headlight does not come on (2004 Altima). I replaced the bulb, checked the fuses. They all seem okay. I'm wondering if there are any other relays that I need to check. If it's in the harness then, I guess I'll have to bring it to the dealer. Hope not. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Car won't start until i give it gas.

You have to change the Fuel filter on your car. Its probably do for one anyways so change that fuel filter and that should solve your problems.

You may have a problem with the check valve in the fuel pump, if this valve is defective the gas drains back to the fuel tank and causes long crank times, you can test this by hooking up a fuel pressure guage at the fuel injector fuel supply line on the top of the engine, run the engine for a moment and quickly record the pressure when you shut down, that pressure reading should not drop more than 5 PSI overnight, if the check valve is bad the pressure will most likely start to drop right away, but do the over night test anyway. If this is the problem you will need to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank.

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan sentra cutting out when given gas

If it is bad gas you would be able to smell it usually. When gas goes bad it turns to like varnish and the smell ( believe me- once you have smelled it) you will never forget what it smells like. If the engine light is on, check the trouble codes. On a 1995 Nissan Sentra it was the first year of OBD 2 systems so it should have a hookup for the scan tool but if you don't have a scan tool you can still retrieve the codes from the ECU or the check engine light.
Under the dash behind the center console is the ECU. You will need to get to it(Don't disconnect it from it's wiring harness ) Just be able to access it and I believe on the side of the ECU isa Diagnostic Mode Selector which you will move to the left and turn ignition switch to on position(not start) and watch how the check engine light flashes. Sometimes it will flash fast and sometimes slow. Then it will repeat. Example a long beep then 4 quick beeps would be a code 14. Write down what yours is and get back with me. Good luck.

Start by testing fuel pressure. If not at specs, change filter and fuel pump. Pressure should be high, probably in the 40-50 psi range, any shop could tell you specified pressure. Also check for trouble codes, use a scanner.

89 Geo Spectrum. Was at the autoparts store had them hook up diagnostic to test battery, starter and alternator. Everything tested ok. However when I left my car seemed to be running unusally high/fast. I...

you seem to be snatching at straws. that is ok. many do.
panic sets in.... its a machine and all fail.
You have dangerous high idle speeds, this is dangerous.
why not seek help. any mech can find this, Any!

The car has EFI , and idle controls.
A/Cs sets faster idle , by about 200 rpm ,
800 hot , to 1000 hot (in general)
The car has an idle speed controller that is failing.
there are other ways for this to happen, all complex.
1: intake manifold air leaks.
2: some dork, spun the distributor guessing at timing, fire him.
3: ISC bad. (or IAC) electric idle or thermo idle controls
4: throttle linkage jammed. (cruise, throttle or A/T kickdown)
5: or Toyota disease, the floor mats are hitting the throttle (dumb)
there are more..
it takes tools to fix cars, and know how. do you have tools?
that includes gauges.
guessing is expensive.
ask any mechanic to look, its not costly for just a look.

Stall out when given gas to excellerate ... runs fine in idle

For all those out there that have had problems with your Chevy Aveo Stalling, inconsistent idling, hard to start, or throttle problems, Hollywood Harv has the answer for you. Try a new Valve Idling Air Cont GM part number 93744675. You only need one and it has to be install by Chevrolet so they can place in the codes to make it work properly. Toss the old one away as most likely has so much carbon build up on the part that it stuck or struggling to function properly. It worked on mine after many different attempts at other stuff! This is a sure winner! Good luck and drive safe! Hollywood Harv

Truck will not stay running without giving gas after a jump off

when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates
