If you had gas, and battery terminals were clean, and your battery is good, then you have another problem. You may have a problem with your fuel pump, which is located in the fuel tank. Get in your car and turn ignition to ON. Listen for a buuuuuurrrrrr noise coming from the fuel tank. If no noise your fuel pump is bad. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

SOURCE: I have a Saturn L200.

You should try re-learning the pass-lock system first. Turn the key to the on position and leave it on for 10 min, or until the security light goes out. Turn the key off for at least 30 sec. Turn the key back on, very important not to turn too far and bump the starter, for another 10 minute cycle. Do this 3 times for a total of 30 min. After the 3rd cycle it should start.

SOURCE: car dies when accelerate. do i need new fuel pump?

It sounds from your description that the fuel pump is weak. To check the fuel pressure you need a fuel pressure test gauge for fuel injection. Attach the gauge to the test port schrader valve and turn the ignition to the on position. Record the reading. Now start the engine and record that reading. Unplug the pressure regulator vacuum line and record the reading.
The pump should have pressure with in specs but if low, start with the installation of a new complete pump. It is located in the fuel tank. Also replace your fuel filter.
Hope this helps you.

because the combustion inside the engine is going wrong the quantity of air getting inside is not the needed quantity maybe less than or more in cold will cause such problem once the engine warm up than the engine temperature is up you will not find this problem because the point of firing will be near

My check engine light has been on, now it is blinking, I was putting gas that contained entanol in it but I've recently put good gas into it with a gas treatment, it is missing like crazy and dies

The fact you asked says you can't diagnose yourself

When you get a check light on you don't continue to
use the car,you check for codes with in 2 days

Only then do you have an idea if you should use it

No reason not to have ALL issues repaired in a couple

Any check light that blinks is an Emissions Failure that will
damage your exhaust converter & if you keep driving it ,possibly
your motor in time.

You need to read your owners manual & start on a path to
learns todays technology

That technology stated in 1996,that is plenty of time to be
up to speed

No vehicle ever needs any product put into it from the
auto parts store,they are just a genie in a bottle that take
your money

Would you not rather find the real issue first,even if there was
a product you could use

Trouble starting up my 2001 Aurora and if you put any gas to it it dies once running it seems to be ok. however it has died at times

Claen mass air flow sensor with a non-chlronated brake cleaner if that does'nt help check the fuel pressure if not within specs replace pump.

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.
