You may have a problem with your throttle position sensor. With the car off push the pedal to the floor 10 times rather quickly. Then restart the car. See if its better then. Sometimes they get a little sticky because of not using full throttle.,

2002 dodge ram won't start if you step on gas peddle before starting it. What causes this? If you wait a couple of hours it will then start


Fuel injected engines don't need to be pumped before starting, if you do flooding can occur. Make a conscious effort NOT to touch the pedal until after you turn the key to the start position and the engine actually starts.

2010 Sebring 2.4 Does not respond to the gas peddle all the time.even when in park if you step on the gas it will continue to idle.


Replace the throttle position sensor (TPS). These wear out over time, or get dirty inside if there is oil or dirt in the engine area.

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad(or in this case,has gone bad). I suggest that you change the fuel pump and use a fuel cleaner in your gas tank as dirty gas may have caused the problem to begin with.

Have it checked out, have the cooling system "pressure checked" and see where the coolant went. When they find that, it may explain the other problems.

1999 C70 the engine is hard to start and stalls when you stop


The same thing happened to my 99 C70. I had to replace coils, in the engine...has somewhat to do with the spark plug stuff. Cost me $600.
Also the electric seats go out, they are lame. I spent $150 fixing my driver side one time, then it went out again...and is stuck...but okay enough for me to drive, and I refuse to fix it again.
