You seem to have a very bad vacuum leak. Look at all your rubber hoses under hood , for cracked, loose , broken or missing hoses. You may even here them hissing. Replace any that you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy s10 runs for a few minutes then dies.

I doubt very much this is electrical. Rather do a visual inspection for vacuum pipes that are leaking or have become dislodged especially around the throttle body(Where the throttle cable is connected to) and plenumb chamber. If you find a place that looks like a pipe needs to be connected there, hold it closed with your finger and see if the revs pick up slightly. If it does then look for the pipe that needs to go there. You shouldnt have any pipes hanging loose around the engine bay. If you dont find anything on the engine itself follow every little pipe to where it goes/connects to and do the same. This costs nothing and a mechanic will charge you an hours' worth of labour for doing the same. The engine's fuel/air mixture is being leaned out somewhere. You can perhaps have the CO content tested to confirm, as this is relatively inexpensive.

I put in another battery in my 2000 dogde truck.now it wont idle on its own.


Robert, You may have to try this relearn procedure.
Warm the engine, but hold your foot on the throttle as necessary to keep the engine running.
  1. With vehicle in Park, slowly release the throttle so that the engine will idle on its own. You may have to work at this a bit.
  2. Let the engine idle on its own for about one minute.
  3. Continue to let the engine idle and with your foot on the brake, place the transmission in Drive and let the engine idle for another minute.
  4. Continue to let the engine idle with your foot on the brake and the transmission in Drive. Turn the A/C on and let the engine idle for another minute with the A/C compressor running.
  5. Turn the ignition off and wait a minute. Check the attached links,

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?


I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

Engine died when comming 2 a fast stop


its a ford, sorry i had to say it im a chevy guy, it could be that you were faster than the computer and your brakes locked up or slowed it down faster than the torque converter could unlock itself, rare thing to happen, happens more offten to two footed drivers, the converter is designed to unlock as soon as you let off the gas, two footed drivers tent to keep a feet on the gas a little when the brake. iff it persist it could be a torque converter issue
