The fuel filter may need to be replaced. The parts are relatively cheap - labor may vary from 1/2 hour to an hour.

SOURCE: car doesn't seem to get enough gas to engine

Have you done a tune lately on the car?
I would also suspect a fuel pump problem is you've done a tune up recently.

First thing that comes to my mind is a vaccum hose. My girlfriends car did this and i fixed it with a piece of 3$ hose. If the light is on you can take it to your local parts store and they can hook it up to a device that gives them the trouble code. They can then tell you what is wrong with it. Do not let them sell you any parts until you confirm that this is the problem. They sold my g/f a 300$ mass air flow sensor when the vaccum hose was all that was needed. Have a friend rev up the engine while you listen for a whistling noise under the hood. If you hear one this could be your problem. You could also have electrical issues such as a bad coil pack.

if there's water coming out of the exhaust pipe its a head gasket but it could be a bad thermostat and when your car gets to a certain temperature the fan will come on and cool it off

First GUESS.. replace the charcoal canister after you have cleaned out the hoses between it and the canister. Then blow air between the purge control solenoid valve and the fuel tank.

It sounds like you have a vacuum leak or a stuck EGR valve. Check all the vacuum hoses to see if it will straighten up. You can pinch them off with a pair of pliers as close to the intake plenum as possible to see if it starts idling better. PCV hoses are also known to get large holes in them and can be a little tough to diagnose if you do not know what to look for.

Fixing a sputtering problem with my 98 tiburon

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My 98 Saab 900s started to sputter a few days ago. I put new spark plugs, dist. cap and rotor. The air intake is clear and the hose has no cracks. It still sputters in low rpm at idle and when driving it...

change your fuel filter and check the fuel pressure on the fuel pump you may have gotten some bad fuel try some STP gas treatment make sure you have a half tank of gas and add a little more go somewhere you can drive 55MPH give these websites a try and wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

I was driving home from work and my tiburon started to lose power and started sputtering, my check engine light came on ummediatly and was able to make it the 30 feet to my house, There is no sign of leaks...

Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. These codes are important because they POINT you/us in the right direction regarding location of the problem or the system which is causing the problem. Waiting to hear from you.

Same thing here!!!!

Nope... vapor lock has been eliminated for some time due to the advent of fuel injection at 40 to 50 lbs.... The problem still could be the fuel pump.. you need to have it diagnosed by a professional technician - then you'll know for sure.

98 Saturn SL 1 sputters

Have a scanner hooked up to your car and do a data stream to see if your knock sensor is still working. On a heavy load, if the ECM detects detenation in the engine, it will automatically want to ****** the timing to make it run better on a load.
