Question about Cars & Trucks
It shoes code 54. when driving it starts to starve for gas or misc. turn key off and start again seems to run fine
AutoZone will usually diagnose codes for free in hopes of selling you the parts. Sounds like a fuel filter but could be a weak fuel pump. It is most likely an electric pump located inside the fuel tank.

Hello first thing i would start with is check your idle screw it may be set to low if the choke linkage is sticking .first take your breather off so you can see the choke linkage look to see where the plate is positioned is it fully closed have somone try starting with out touching the gas pedal if it doesnt start slightly open the choke plate if it starts you need a choke adjustment check to see if its manuel linkage, vacuum operated,or electrical. if vacuum check lines for dry cracks or splits preventing choke operation if electrical you need to test the power wire at the choke also test for good ground if mechanical check adjustment screw for curb idle to see if its set to low.goodluck please rate

I have had a similar issue with my 2004 Accender and my 1998 Chevrolet Lumina.
In my case both vehicles are automatics and for some reason the park sensor did not pick up that the shifter was moved to the park position. All I have had to do is to place my foot on the brake (for safety) then pull the shifter into gear and back to park a few times and it took and the key released.
Additionally, the steering wheel will not lock into place unless the car is fully in Park, this will also tell you that you might want to either check and replace the sensor or just work with the shifter a little till it works again.
