Check the air filter. or fuel pump. I've also seen a car do this with a clogged catalytic converter.

Girl put bad gas in 49 get bad gas in 49cc Tayo . changed gas . wont throtle uo.pump ok. Filter ok acts like starving for gas Acts like float valve is stuck

Most likely some of the bad gas is still in the system causing this. Run it until it runs better, if that doesn't help, drain ALL FUEL from it, including the lines, even dry them out before adding more fuel. You also might need to take out the spark plug and clean or replace it if it is fouled with it.

When my 1972 chevrolet 350 4 barrel is warmed up it acts like its not getting gas and jerks and eventually dies. if i wait a few minutes it will start up but after slight acceleration it starts it aga

Good chance it is not getting fuel, or enough fuel.
When the rig is cold, the choke is closed. As it warms up, the choke opens.
If the metering jets inside the carb are dirty, they may not be letting enough fuel into the barrels. You could also have a vac leak that is masked by the choke until the engine warms up.

2000 Isuzu Hombre/Chevy S-10, 2.2L 4cyl. It starts fine, but wants to stall until it warms up a bit. After that, putting it into gear, it tries to stall. Any acceleration at first, it wants to stall. Once...

its really a GM car, end to end.

no engines codes, is not true i bet ,
some codes take 1 to 3 trips, or dont store
and if you get CEL glowing, driving too much can clear the codes.
so.... that means you must scan it failing. see?

sputtering is misfiring (bad spark or way to rich fuel)

why do you jump all over fuel first.
try spark FIRST no gas engine burn fuel right with bad spark'
not one, and is first not last.
ever heard of tuneup, done one in last decade.
you know, spark parts? plugs and wire top list.

in the rules of basics its:
engine good, (compression test pass, and vacuum looks ok)
then spark
last fuel
why do that backwards/?

Very hard to fill my gas tank when it is empty. gas sprays out the filler neck until i get about 1/4 tank of gas put in. then problem goes away. help

Not sure but maybe the fuel pump is very hot making the fuel boil. Maybe check to see if the tank is hot, ( touch it ) if it is the fuel pump or the fuel filter needs to be changed. The pump is very powerful and with the filter clogged up it'll work real hard to deliver the fuel at the correct pressure. This will make the fuel ump real hot hick may make it boil the cool fuel added. Does it do this if the tank has more fuel in it? A fuel pump that's getting this hot isn't a good thing and should be followed up on. The other thing that might be happening is the fuel inlet hose is picnced and the fuel is being reversed. But it seems like the lavel won't matter. Maybe the tank is'nt venting corectly and the tank is being sucked flat as it emplties and as it fills it goes back in shape. ( alot less likly.)

Put seafoam into gas tank, replaced ignition coil wire only, won't start acts like choke stuck, fires but won't stay running

3 words- "Fuel Pump Failure"

Sea Foam is a bad idea- its a good temporary fix but the cons outway the pro's-

When you first start your vehicle the pump has enough pressure to fire but it doesnt have enough ump to keep the proper pressure level and the engine dies- anything after 1995 has 1 to 2 pound variance of pressure anything less than that and the fuel pressure regulator fails to operate properly

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls immediately after

check intake manifold air temp sensor and engine coolant may be out of range but not enough to turn on dash light. tests and specs can be found in chiltons or haynes, test is done with digital multi-meter.
