Put bad gas in 2010 colbalt,it womt start now. What should i do?

You are going to have to drain the gas tank and motor of all bad gas. The next time you put gas in it buy some gas treatment and some sea foam and that should clear out the bad gas.

When I put some gummout in gas tank. A few days later I begin to lose acceleration while driving. I bought a new gas filther, but problem came back. Do I need to flush the gas tank?

No, you should probably take it to a mechanic and have it checked out.
Sometimes a simple gas treatment will help your car but if it hasn't been serviced in awhile ... take it in.

My pontiac g5 will make a noise when i accelerate

I had a similar issue with my Windstar van. Both the owner and chief mechanic drove it and reported hearing a "tic" in the engine. Solution? With fuel down to 1/4 tank, added Lucas upper cylinder lube and filled up with premium. Big improvement but I repeated the treatment with regular fuel just to be sure.

Code 303

Code 303 means cylinder number 3 is not producing power. If the spark is good on that cylinder, you could have a problem with the injector or something mechanical.

1985 ford f150 starts, but dies if gas pedal is not pressed, no problem starting, but as soon as I put in neutral it dies . . . tries to keep running but dies

Could be as simple as a vacuum leak from old hoses.
The carb WILL become DAMAGED from ethanol fuel.
DO NOT use that in a vehicle that sits.
Some premium gas has no ethanol,find it and use only it.
A good engine an worth spending a little money on.

Valve noise for toyota 93

If you are refering the "Marbles in the engine" sound, I was told that is dirty valves. It's caused by dirty gas and other dirt that gets in your gas over the years. You only notice it when a good amount of torque is put on the engine, don't ask me why. It's not a HUGE problem, but I can imagine it does cost some overall power output and should try to be maintained with some engine treatment cleaner every once in a while. I've talked to people who put it in every time they fill up, I am not one of those people. Hope that helps.

Check engine Light

P-0300 indicates a "multiple cylinder misfire".
P-0301, 0302, and 0303 indicates misfires on cylinders 1, 2, and 3.

The culprit could be bad gasoline, water in the gas, or dirty injectors. If you had P-0301-02-03-04-05-06, I would recommend plugs. But, in your case, I do believe that your issue IS fuel related.
I would not suspect ignition coils, as you do not have a P-0304 with the other 3 codes recorded. I hope this helps. Please feel free to get back to me if the problem reappears, for additional info.

Hard idling

Are you ONLY using premium gas every time? If not, try only putting premium gas for the next 2 fill ups. See if you see a difference.
