Take the gas cap off for a few minutes and gently tap on the bottom of the gas tank to make sure that the float is not stuck because if the float is stuck it would be telling the car that it is out of gas and the reason for taking off the gas cap is for vacuum pressure

1995 pontiac formula lt1 motor turns over No start


If it has sat and not run for awhile...the fuel could be dirty...add a bottle of HEET to help eliminate any water build up...also add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank...may need 2 bottles...last check would be the control module for a spark test...

Its -12 ,whent to start my car and it turned over and stalled out imediatley, is my gas line frozen?


Yes, I would highly suspect (frozen) water in the fuel. Dumping a couple of bottles of heet (should be able to get at a gas station or auto parts store) in the fuel tank. This MAY work, but likely you will have to get your car towed to a warm shop. Then have them change the fuel filter. Whenever it gets real cold you could put heet in the tank as a preventative. Heet is the brand make of a alchohol gas deicer. By the way, i'm from Alaska. Were enjoying the warmest winter in years right now.

In my 2002 mercury cougar i just put gas in it and now when i start it i have to be pushing gas at all time or it cuts off


Probably a bad tank of gas. Go to your local parts store and buy a bottle or two of Heet. It's in a yellow bottle. Then drive to the nearest Chevron or Shell gas station and top off the tank after dumping the Heet in. If the problem persists then change out your fuel filter.
