    I am getting good fuel pressure and spark. Replaced map sensor,plugs,fuel filter. When it is cold it will start and run. It only does this after it has run for maybe 15 - 20 minutes. Once it dies it will not start till next day???

    when it doesnt start fuel and spark are there! theres no engine trouble codes,did u check if fuel injectors arent cutting off?

  • carhob May 11, 2010

    it can be weak spark,or fuel pressure is too low,semi block fuel filter,pressure regulator,is fuel pressure up to check engine light on or came on?

On cars with a carb, you could point to lean fuel mixture. Runs rich enough when it's cold, because the choke makes the fuel mix richer. When it's warm. you no longer have that"rich" mix from the choke and then it's too lean to keep running. Could be a dirty jet, dirt in the carb, Dirt in the fuel. the list goes on. Needs rebuilt or blown out with carb cleaner spray works sometimes. Dissasemble and clean out with compressed air.
With fuel injection, Throttle bodies, it could be a dirty throttle body, injector,etc, Port injection, could be a sensor or some thing controling fuel, a bad couple of injectors, really not sure. Or a sensor of some sort. If you could get it to Auto zone they will scan it for free and tell you what it needs. Hard to put a finger on it with out seeing it. Have you tryed a good fuel cleaner like lucas? Do you run the tank below a quater tank? This will cause troubles. Best of luck, Those Quad four's are a great motor. lbreen

My 2000 park avenue starts fine but once it warms up it spits and sputters then dies and it wont start

If it is backfiring and dying I would be willing to bet you have a crank angle sensor going out when it get warmed up. Also check to see if your fuel pump is running by listening in the gas door with the cap off. I have had them do this when the fuel pump gets hot it quits pumping fuel.

I put a brand new pump and filter on it and once my 87 dodge dakota warms up it starts spitting and sputtering once it dies there is no gas going to the carb until it cools down?? Why?

Its possible the vent for the gas tank is not working - - you might try running the truck with the gas cap loose to verify.
You have checked the carb and you know for a fact there is no fuel inside it when it dies ? And you know the pump is not pumping fuel when it dies ?

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies

I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?

Ran it out of gas,now wont start

Turn the key without starting the engine, you should hear the fuel pump engage. Do this a few times to prime the engine. If it still doesn't start, spray "starting fluid", available at parts store, into your throttle body. It should start now.
