    I have a 2003 Kia Sorento. I also filled the gas tank and started experiencing a "stalling feeling" when accelerating up to highway speeds. I put dry gas into the tank thinking it might be water...which didn't help the problem. Since the problem is random, its hard to describe, demonstrate or fix.

My 1999 blazer spit sputtered and then died turns over then acts like it timing jjmped well with new timing chain still doing this any ideas


Go back to basics, spark and gas getting to the cylinders? Does the engine crank at normal speed for cranking? If so, check spark and gas. If it's in time, it must have lost one or the other.
One easy way to check, spray some stating fluid into the air intake (take off the large boot) and try to start. If it runs or almost starts on the fluid, you know it's a gas problem. If it doesn't fire at all with the fluid, it must not be getting spark. Then you check out or test the ignition system.

Have a 87 buick lesabre 3.8 liter motor. Having trouble with it starting. Acts like not enough fuel or spark. Sometimes it takes 3 times cranking on the starter to get it to start. Also when it gets hot...


Please check the following.

Check Spark at the plugs. (all of them)
Fuel filter not clogged.
Choke working properly.
Rev the engine while shooting carb cleaner through all the ports.
pull and clean and check your mixture screws. (Remember to EXACTLY count the turns out and go back in the same). See if this helps. Mike

I have a 2000 Mercury Villager Mini Van Sport. When I am in park I can rev the engine with no problens, when I put it in gear & push on the gas it spits & sputters & can't hardly get any...


have the fuel pressure checked if it is ok then you most likely have a bad cam or crank sensor.. is the check engine light on? that will help to pinpoint the issue. if no check engine light then most likely its a fuel pump.

2004 grand cherokee 4.0l one day it will run fine the next day it runs rough rich and when i step on the gas the engine cuts out and spits and sputters


When the "spits and sputters" happen are you in low rpm? Can you "by-pass" the sputtering by accelerating? Has your gas mileage suffered?

Engine dies numerous times a day.


Have you thought about it possibly being the engine that has something wrong with it? Have you checked the cylinders?

Car spits and sputters and stalls after driving a while


sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps

Lack of power


You need to check a service manual on this but it sounds a bunch like a cold-start valve isn't closing once the engine is warm and this would cause an overly rich fuel-air mix that would gag a warm engine. I don't know if your car is equipped with  one or not.
