Wont stay running

I have replaced the fuel pump in my car, i can get it to start and it runs at an idle for a few seconds and when i press on the gas it boogs out and stalls. The gas and fuel filter is all new and i am thinking that it might be somthing with the injectors but im not sure???????

Sometimes when you drain the gas or run low on gas the car is hard to start and keep running...if you can get it started let it run for awhile on its own to get the air out of the line and see how it does then

1997 chevy makibu wont start tries to but wont start sometimes it will start other times it wont then it ill start n die in a few seconds whats wrong with it


I suspect that your fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Fuel pump may be faulty. Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

Jeep cherokee limited starts and then dies a few seconds after. I have changed the fuel filter, distributor cap and roter, spark plug wires, battery, cleaned the idol controll sensor.. I hear the fuel pump...


If it will start right back up and if you hold gas pedal will truck stay running ? if it will stay running when you hold the gas then replace the idle air control valve it is bad and cleaning it didnt help. but if it wont stay running even if you hold the gas pedal then the first thing is to make sure you are not loosing fuel presure

I have a 90 chevy k1500 350 tbi with same problem! I have traced problem to... after turning on key fuel pump kicks on when u crank it over injectors shoot gas and truck starts! After few seconds injectors stop spraying and truck dies! This can happen many times over and over! Eventually sometimes truck stays running and all is great! I changed ignition module, oil pressure sending unit (which i was told controls gas after vehicle is running) fuel filter, computer, fuel pump relay, I am at a loss now! Hope this helps and hope someone can help me!

Possibly a weak fuel pump, idle air control valve, vacuum leaks, or loose or damaged wiring in the ignition system. Check for vacuum leaks first. That's the only one that won't cost anything. Make sure all intake bolts are tight, and all hoses are connected properly and in good condition.

Check all things airflow related. The PCV valve, the air cleaner, the mass airflow sensor and any other filters.
