It's most likely one of three things. It could be a plugged fuel filter, a bad fuel pump. or a bad throttle positioning sensor.

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.

Engine dies while idling, then car won't start for a few minutes


One possibility is a blocked fuel line or filter. It basically runs out of fuel and you have to wait for it to come through slowly. The other possibility is the ignition system is losing spark as something heats up. You have to wait until it's cooled down before it runs again.

The car starts fine and responds to throttle for about 5 mins then starts coughing and stalls starts up again straight away then repeats


you did'nt specify what year,engine size, or model. but what you describe,is a common poblem.the engine idle control sensor may be bad.is your check engine light "on"? this may be why the lights on. but the light may not be on at all, and the idle control sensor may still be bad. it starts fine, then idles fine for awhile,until you put it into gear to drive it,then it sputters,or dies. or else you start it and then put it into drive on the clear road,then give it full throttle gas on the floor,it takes off fine and runs great,until you come to stop sign or red light,then it dies? suspect a bad idle control sensor 1st then suspect clogged fuel injectors. which can be cleaned easily by adding sea foam,or lucas fuel injector cleaner to your fuel tank. no service fees due. thank you for choosing fixya.com. we always look forward to assisting you in your needs,automotive,or just about anything you need assistance with,fixya.com can assist you with! and again,thank you for choosing fixya.com!

91 acclaim v6. starts and runs good, but once its been running for awhile (hour or so), and i turn it off, it doesnt want to start back up, or does and dies. wait 2 hours and it starts right up. recently...


Sounds like either you have a clogged fuel line and or clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump is failing. What happens when the vehicle runs the fuel pump heats up, as it heats up it produces less and less fuel for your car. Eventually ti stops working until its cool again on faulty pumps. Given the age of your vehicle I would say you need to replace both pump and filter.

I have a 1997 gmc serria 1500 4x4 5.7l i replaced the iac motor and it still reves up high could it be the tps


When replacing the IAC it is a self learning item the computer will teach. You need to do this to fix this problem first since you DID replace it. Have the engine good and cold (not hot) let set three hours if warm. Now we are ready. Place the parking brake on. Start the engine. Put your foot firmly on the brake. Put the car in drive. You will not go anywhere for the next proceedure. I do hope you have a tachometer. You will need to rev the engine in gear between 1100 & 1299 RPM's and hold it there for 5 minutes. This is the proceedure to have the self learning codes from the switch to the vehicles computer stored. When your done this truck should idle at 800 rpm's

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


check the fuel regulator,while running unplug the red vacumn hose and if gas squirts out the hole,then it is bad,if not then possibly plugged catalytic converters,drive it on the highway if you can, and stop and look underneath at it and if it looks red,then replace them.Check to see if its overheating,usually a really hot hood tells the story.
