Make sure that the fuel pressure regulator is correct, if the regulator is leaking gas than it cause this problem, also check the fuel filter,spark plug boots, throttle position sensor and mass air flow sensor.

Engine cranks fine, but will only run 5-6 sec then dies. If you press the gas, it sputters and dies immediately.


Seems like a fuel delivery problem.
May be a bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter or a fuel line problem.

What car make/model? What engine?

When it dies, try to turn ignition off immediately, wait a couple of seconds and turn the key quickly to the crank position (don't wait with the key in ignition-on position so that the fuel pump doesn't try to pump fuel into the fuel lines).
If it hesitates to start or runs significantly shorter before dying, you have pinpointed a problem with the fuel system.

Pls let me know what you find out.

When i press on the gas peddle the car hesitates and jerks. If I do it slowly it doesn't do this... But, you can't press hard on the gas peddle or it will hesitate.


I think your car is runing Lean and i would say check the Mass air flow sensor and the fuel system because your car seems like its sucks more air then fuel. Do you have any check engine light on ?

make sure your fuel does NOT have any ethanol in it. these engines don't like corn fuel. i had a similar hesitation problem. it was from using gas w/ 10% ethanol. i switched to 100% gas, no more hesitation.
