Question about Cars & Trucks

Tomberlin crossfire 150 parts

Cart is not getting gas. It will idle and run when I spray gas from a bottle but it will not run on its own. It sat for over a year before I purchased it. I put fresh gas in and cleaned carb as much as possible without rebuilding it.

SOURCE: Car was running fine, now won't crank. It turns over. Some told me timing chain, distributor, injectors, spray carb spray in throttle body or something like that. Can you please help me?

You are saying that the engine will crank or turn over but will not start? If so then you must fine out if the engine has both fuel and spark. after that you can get into the right direction. You can use starting fluid to see is there is a fuel issue. Read the directions on the can. Using too much can harm you and/or your engine.

SOURCE: car wants to die at idle and slow rpm speeds

If they used a spray to clean the carb, then all the junk that was in the carb burned off on your plugs. You probably got a lot of black smoke out of the exhaust when you first drove the car away. Check the plugs. They are most likely gummed up with the residue from the carb cleaner. Either clean the plugs or invest in a new set. This should ensure that the car fires on all 8 cylinders. Driving on the highway, you'd be less likely to notice the problem since you need less power to move through the higher gears. If this doesn't solve your problem post back and we'll diagnose it further. Best of luck!

Dirty air filter....Gunk in carbs..course spark plugs and wires. I would take the air duct loose from carb and spray bottle throttle spay directly in carb while accelerating gas throttle with hand.As the car tries to die down let go of the spray. Repeat 3 or 4 times. It will run alot better. Warning.....dont buy carburetor spray because it eats up your seals in carb......Remember buy bottle throttle spray only.

My 1992 gmc pickup is giving me a fit. It will only stay running if iv got my foot on the gas pedal,otherwise it surges realy bad and dies. The fuel has a weird smell.I've replaced the fuel...


his problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Have a 90 f-250 5.8 gas burner. sat in a warehouse for 2 years. new battery and gas. starts and idles great. run up rpms for 2 minutes and it starts choking out. let off fuel and goes back to idling...


Carburetta is fouled. Run fine on choke - rich mixture. As it warms up and choke pulls off, its starving for gas.
First try adding fuel system cleaner to the gas tank. Do NOT go overboard. No more than double the recommended mix ratio.
The alternative is to remove the carb, open the bowl and spray out the jets and venturi with carb cleaner.

Its possible you may help it by removing the air filter and spraying every orifice you find on top of the carb. With carb cleaner. Be very carefull not to flood, pool carb cleaner in intake as this is not healthy for engine either. You can do this with engine running, so as not to pool, but slowly is best, both in engine speed and volume of carb cleaner.

Engine runs ruff idles low up and down. already replaced throttle position switch


Their are several posibilities for this type of concern. Some of the common ones for this year Sportage are. 1. a vacuum leak. 2. Clogged injectors due to a rusty gas tank. ( their is a recall for this) 3. Cam timing jumped.
The easiest one to check first is for a vacuum leak. You can use a spray bottle with soapy water to spray on the vacuum lines and intake. If it smooths out or you see the water get "sucked in" to the area that you sprayed you found your problem. The next easiest one to check for is the rust in fuel.
Remove the fuel filter and drain the fuel into a cup by blowing thru the outlet of the filter.

Poor gas mileage


I hope your friend put some gas stabilizer in the tank before he store the car.

I will put one bottle of ISO-HEET (red bottle) to the fuel tank + fill-up and let it run down to 1/3 tank.

Fuel up with a full tank Chevron gas for one more pass.
