We had the same problem and found it was the fuel pressure regulator. Upon replacing it no longer gives any hesitation at startup.

My car has been starting hard and sometimes dies unless I pump the gas a little when I'm cranking it


Maybe you need to change the gas filters or maybe try better gas or maybe change the fuel pump.

My truck wont start unless i prime the carborator first, then it wont stay running unless i rev it high just before i put it in gear, or im accellerating...


To start with, you have a throttle body instead of a carburetor.
On that throttle body is a component called an air control valve.
That valve is how the computer controls the idle speed. It should open and close the air flow into the intake manifold as needed.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ? Have you checked the fuel pressure ?

My 2001 chevy tahoe will not idle. it will not start unless i am giving it gas. and i have to keep giving it gas until it warms up. even then it will not hold an idle. i already replaced the iac valve....


Do you notice that the check engine lamp is on, if so what codes are stored in the memory? Since this may be your problem area. It may be wise to have a Dianostic test performed to keep from replacing un-nessary parts.

1997 ford expedition will start but wont stay running unless you hold your foot on the gas pedal. Replaced mass airflow sensor because that's the code that came up. Doesn't do it all the time.


if code keeps coming up re check sensor and connections and if not done replace air filter ----if good than check fuel prssure sometimes clodding fuel filter can cause same problem and set off sensor

Truck won't keep running


Try giving the intake air control motor a few whacks with the handle end of a screw driver. You'll find that on the throttle body, it looks like a little metal cylinder with an electrical connector on it. While someone is keeping the truck running, a few light whacks will do. If it keeps running after that, replace the IAC motor.
