    you need a fuel pressure tester gauge.you need to get the one that check fuel pressure up to 100 psi.if you got throttle body fuel pressure is 9 to 13 psi. if you got port fuel injection it is 55 to 61 psi.

    A fuel pressure gauge and an adapter that goes in where the filter is. This is a TBI engine right? The pressure spec is 9-13. But I have experienced that you need to be 11 or more. The best way to check it is to run the motor and pinch off the return line. The pressure should rise to at least 16.

I have a 1993 dodge dakota that will not run when I put it in gear. If I let it set for awhile (2-3 hours) it will start right up and idle for as long as I want without missing but as soon as I put it into...


Check fuel filter, relay, fuel pump, sometimes the pump will run, but still too weak to run an engine at speed or underload. If fuel pressure checks out to be fine, look for a clogged catalytic converter.

When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

1996 ford explorer stalls like it ran out of gas


It sounds like a weak fuel pump is causing the occasional stalling, particularly when attempting acceleration at normal driving speeds. It's not unusual for it to idle with no problem if the pump is weak. Also, check the fuel lines to.from the fuel pump. If all else fails, you might consider adding an auxiliary fuel pump to counter the weak OEM pump.

1972 VW Dune Buggy Stalling when coming to stop


Sounds like a fuel starvation problem. Start with the fuel filter, then have the carb rebuilt. Make sure the idle setting has not changed.

2006 Jetta TDI Stalls in gear


These little engines(although very good little engines)have a problem with carbon build up in the intake manifold. It builds up so bad it begins to choke the engine off. The only solution is to remove the intake and soak with a good solvent over night and will generally take you a good couple of hours to clean out to get to "like new" again. Once this is accomplished, it's like driving your car new again!!
