Is mil light on if so what codes is it throwing? Could be clogged cat converter. That would explain why it runs at first until pressure builds up. Check fuel pressure at the rail. But first check simple solutions first like plugs wires fuel and air filters. Hope this helps

I have a 96 honda civic 1.6 liter. when i acclerate my car sputters and dies when i reach around 20 mph. it runs perfeclty when i dont acclerate and now it haves trouble starting. i recently bought new...

It could be several things. Start with the most simplest things like replacing the fuel filter, air filter and running a fuel system cleaner through the engine. A clogged catalytic converter can also be a reason for poor accelleration. Are there any trouble lights on the dash like the engine light or check engine light? Have your charging system checked as well just to make sure everything is up to par. This can be done for free at nearly any autoparts store like Advanced Autoparts or Auto Zone. Other possibilities could include water or other foreign substances in the fuel tank/system, a failing fuel pump and clogged injectors if the engine is fuel injected. Hope this helps.

Car won't start

I had the same problem it was the fuel pump itself. Have it pressure line tested, if it is lower then 60 psi then its bad. Mine was reading 55psi and would not start my blazer. If i sprayed starter fluid in the throttle body vrrrm start right up. This is because (what I was told) it is a high pressure furl system. also make sure the line you replaced is installed right and is right line

97 malibu theft light killing my car

The theft passlock is shutting your fuel off try this Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10mins take key out wait 10seconds repeat 3 times total 30mins. If that dont work try another key do the same process. If this dont work a new ignition switch needs installed by a dealer because reprogramming is needed.Or You are right you can install a bypass switch will tell you how or take it somewhere where they install remote starts and they can do it

How to check and replace, if needed, the cicuit fuse; new O2senso

To verify if it's a real problem now disconnect the positive battery lead wait about 30 seconds and reconnect. The light should not be on unless it's a real problem yet. If it stays off then go somewhere where you can floor it and go through the gears a couple times. This will establish a new accleration curve. If it comes on again then you will have to have it hooked up to a computer and see what the error code is.
