Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Car stalls and stops unless pushing gas

Sometimes the car starts fine, but even then, after a while of driving the car becomes difficult to start, impossible without immediately hitting the gas pedal so that it won't turn back off. When the car is idle it sputters like it's struggling to stay on and there is danger of stalling/shutting off unless constantly applying some gas. I've noticed that there is a very loud sound like air escaping while the car is on. The worst the car gets with this problem, the louder the air leaking sound, but I cannot find where the air is leaking from.

Easyiest way to find the leak from you vaccum lines is to take starting fluid and spray areas at a time and when your vehicle revs up that is the area that you will find your leak... All it is is a vaccum leak

SOURCE: car stalls when accelerating in low gears

I had similar issues on mine. I bought it from the Good Will for less than $1000. :)
It's been totaled i believe at least twice.
Anyways, replace the fuel filter. It's about the size of an oil filter and is very easy to replace.
Also, replace the spark plugs with some good titanium type plugs. They're like $4 from Wal Mart.
Next, put some fuel injector cleaner every other tank of gas or so. This will definitely help.
Good Luck

SOURCE: My 1999 Camry CE sometimes stalls at starting

it sounds like a common toyota problem........."idle air control motor", the part is very easy too change, and if your looking to save money.try a junk yard , it is a commonly used part and theyll have it much cheaper than parts stores....you can try to unplug the idle motor and see if the car runs (not better, but more even RPMS)...it the idle is even and not up and down,,,, it is for sure a bad idle motor,,, let me know, ill guide ya through the testing if needed..........marty

If you notice the car running rich(black smoke out of the exhaust) you might look at the MAP sensor. It is a common problem with these cars,and about 50 bucks at your local parts store. You will find it on the passenger side inner fender just in front of the strut tower, it is a small black box with one vaccum line and one elec. plug. try pulling off the vac. line and plugging it with a bolt the car should idle like that, if it does, you have found your problem. Hope this helps

2005 DODGE CARAVAN STALLS OUT AFTER YOU FILL IT UP WITH GAS


When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

2002 forester CEL on (EVAP Leak) and stalling at start?


If it were a large leak, the vehicle would idle fast, then the iac would reduce to stabilize the issue. We have had a few units needing the tank system smoked. Was this a part of the smoke job you received?? There is a bleed or purge valve in the rear which is hard to smoke and tell if it is defective. With out the entire values, it would be very difficult to diagnose over the net.
Good luck

I have a 93 mercury cougar, 3.8. When I first start it up and give it gas it'll sputter then stall and the check engine light will come on and it won't start again unless I give it gas and even after it...


It needs a gascap. You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. A Code will be set if the cap is loose or missing.

There are other possible reasons for your drivability problems, but get the scan, put on a gascap and fix scan results.

1988 c3500 Farther I press accelerator down the more it feels like its stalling


I think I would take a look at the catalytic converter. Sounds like it has become plugged and they will become more so as it gets hotter. Pull it loose and look in the front side to see what kind of shape the comb is in, should be obvious if that is it.

2004 grand am se v6 sometimes wont start unless gas pedal is pushed


when you say -turn over do you mean firing-turning over to me means the starter motor is cranking or turning over-firing is when combustion happens in the cylinders-as far as the cranking continuing-try some wd40 in the ignition switch-it may be hanging up-Denny

Car randomly stalls when i stop or even while i drive


It sounds like your fuel filter is clogged or your fuel pump is going bad. When this happens see if you can hear if your fuel pump is running. Turn the key forward to the run position and listen near the gas tank. you should hear a vibrating sound. If you don't hear it at all the pump of pump relay is bad. If you hear it continually your fuel filter, pressure regulater, or fuel line have problems.
