Changed alternator, belt and battery on 01 sable ls after driving for a short time air bag light and gas light come on and car dies....help?


First thing is to see if the battery needs charging. If it has a full or near full charge, then maybe a loose or corroded battery cable connection is making the car seem dead..
You have to get the engine cranking at a normal rate or speed, to first see if it will start. If you get it cranking and it won't start, see if your fuel pump has failed. Best way to check that is to have the fuel pressure tested. No fuel pressure from a failed fuel pump is a major cause of a 'no start' condition.

Truck acts like it is running out of gas? Replaced fuel filter. Ran fine for awhile but now still acts like it is starving for fuel.


my '93 f-250 (4.9L) stopped running while driving, now it acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Tried switching tanks, but still does the same. What would be the problem.

Thee new fuels today go bad after around 3 weeks because of the ethonol content. Put a can of Sea Foam in the gas tank see if that helps clean it out. Best bet is to drain the tank put new fuel in it with a can of Sea Foam, then give it a good long run until the tank is empty. Re fill the tank and put the correct amount of Stabil in the with the gas, this will stop the gas from turning into sugar and it works for years.
Good luck

My 94 Mercury Sable slows down and dies when less than half tank


Check for vent to gas tank,and the fuel pressure regulater to make sure the gas that isn`t being used is routed back to tank easy.The return line going back to tank needs to be cleared by removing gas cap,and blowing air pressure back into tank,If this don`t help,replace the fuel pump,for it is weak.

My 2000 Tahoe will not crank unless you have over 1/4 tank of gas, last week it started dying while driving down the road, After 100 miles it died and then got more frequent and now dies after a mile. It...


Try replacing the fuel filter first and the primary fuel filter screen in the fuel pump may be dirty also. As for the the one in the gas tank which is a part of the fuel pump, your just going to have to keep the gas tank half full and add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank for the next feet fill ups. As for the fuel filter along the frame rail on the drivers side, they have a life of 30,000 miles or 1 year and needs to be replaced within those recommended intervals. Good luck and hope this helps, Note: the gas is what keeps the fuel pump cool, so low fuel in the gad tank will have the fuel pump run hotter causing it to fail prematurely
