You my have water in the tank. It could be a few things. I would start with the little expensive things like check for vacuum leak first. If all is good there then try to pour some dry gas or fuel system cleaner in the tank, make sure It's almost M-T. That dry gas is also good for the filters, and the fuel injectors. Try that, keep me up to date to see if anything helped. Good luck.

Spray some carburetor cleaner directly into the throttle body (behind the tube from the air filter.) Tap the gas several times and repeat after a few minutes, making sure to run it long enough to clear excess cleaner from the engine.

My 2002 chev trailblazer bogs down with the gas pedal pressed to the floor and eventually shut off after it sits for approx 2 days in the garage. once i restart it it runs fine. had fuel pump in tank...


Start cheap, remove fuses #10 and #28 under the hood. Remove your throttle body and clean it (both sides) with a sensor safe spray like Seafoam. When clean, put the fuses back and and see how it does.

How do I reset my oil light on a 2005 Chevy


Turn the ignition to the "ON" position without starting the vehicle. Press the gas pedal in 3 times, holding it in for 2 seconds each time. When the "Change Oil" light flashes, start the vehicle.

Motor starts and then shuts off


does it stay running if you give it gas? start it with a little pressure on the pedal and keep it revved. release the pedal. if it shuts off, replace the idle air control valve/motor

Change oil light stays on for a few seconds


you must reset the oil life . WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE, put ignition in the ON position with the dash lights on. NOW this MUST be done within 10 seconds. Push the gas pedal all the way down to the floor and release 3X. This should clear the light. Sometimes necessary to repeat if not done in a timely manner.
