Chevy impala chugging

My chevy impala started chugging after I got gas. I used heet in it to see maybe it was bad gas, and also used fuel injecter in it because it sat for almost 4 months. When it gets hot it still chugs. What could be the problem?

SOURCE: Suburban loses power when driven over 50mph, it CHUGS!!

The second poster is right it may very well be the throttle position sensor. I had the same issue but it turned out to be an oxygen sensor that had been detecting a too rich fuel mixture in one of the cylinders and eventually failed. I would take the vehicle to a shop and have the codes read off the vehicle. In the US Autozone will do this for you for free and print out a list of codes found.Either way it should help pinpoint the issue a bit better.

RAN OUT OF GAS, NOW CAR WONT STAY CRANKED MORE THAN 4 MIN


Hi there,

sometimes when you run out of gas you can pull up the dirt from the bottom of the tank and damage the pump one quick way to see if you have a pump or filter problem is to put gas directly into the carbuerator or throttle body if fuel injected you can try spraying starting fluid into the air intake also try heet in the fuel tank i hope one of these works for you also to make sure your fuel pump is running you can take off the gas cap have somebody turn the key to on (not start) and put your ear by the tube to hear if the pump hums or runs this primes the prior to starting 
I think i should be a pump.

What do these codes mean on a diagnostics check? c, ev, o, oh,e? what are these numbers for ISO9141 KWP2000 and why does it steady blink on monitor then say backfire problems?


you need to read the manual for the machine you are hooking to the vehicle .
These are errors not codes you need to understand how it works better.

Engine quits running like it runs out of gas?


Many small things can cause this...dirty fuel, water in tank, fuel pressure regulator going bad, air filter clogged, throttle body dirty, clogged catalytic converter. First try fuel injector gas tank and line cleaner...least costly...use 2 bottles of STP concentrated injector cleaner...also add a bottle of liquid heet...to absorb any excess water or sludge in tank...worst cause could be low fuel pressure caused by bad fuel pump...Hope this helps.

Chevy silverado 1500 z71 4wd. Sputters when starting and dies when pressing on the gas, wont start up sometimes.


How many miles do you have on it? Might be time for a tune-up (new plugs, plug wires, etc.) Start with the simple things first - have you changed your fuel filter? Could also be bad gas - couple of bottles of Heet (alcohol) will help with this. Then move on to more things like a Vacuum leak, fuel pump.

Hi,
You might get some gas treatment for your tank. Sometimes bad gas can cause those symptoms.
I would put the treatment in and let it sit overnight. Hopefully the next morning the car will feel better!
I hope this helps... Good luck!

My car was chugging for a while but now it wont start it sounds like it wants to start but it wont crank and i cant locate the relay under the hood


Chevy's don't use a relay like fords, rather they have a solenoid on the starter that your positive battery cable runs to.
Sounds like a fuel delivery issue, you would have to have fuel pressure checked, you most likely have throttle body injection..
