The most probable cause is that fuel is not entering engine properly. It may be dirt in fuel filter, or dirt in carb, It runs until the fuel is depleted then quits. God-Bless!

My 1991 olds mobile cutlass calais wont start,after I added fuel injector cleaner because,the car was having hesistating problems below 25 miles an hour and it might of been a spark plug problem or fuel...


When you chaged the air filter & sprayed Gumout carb cleaner, you got rid of a little gunk in the
air intake, but when you added the fuel injector cleaner (its the same stuff as carburator cleaner) to the fuel tank, you "cleaned out" ALL the ****/gunk/buildup/dirt in the fuel system which has built up since 1991 and sent it straight to the fuel filter, which is now clogged. The reason that the car tries to start, but fails, is that it'll successfully burn up any fuel that gets past the clogged fuel filter, but the engine consumes that small amount of gasoline quickly, then dies.
Your solution: change the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located:
Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line

I'd be tempted to have fuel pressure checked, if at all possible, when it quits. If nothing else, carry a can of quickstart with you, and when it quits, remove air intake at throttle body inlet, and open throttle plate and give a good squirt of quick start, then try to start it. If it starts for a second or 2, then you know you have spark, but no fuel. I've seen fuel pumps work good while cool, and cut -out when it gets hot. Then sit and let pump cool off for 20 minutes or so, then pump up to pressure again and away we go, until it gets hot again. You might also find if you park in the shade, you'll get further, or even on a full tank. Another good idea would be to change fuel filter in case fuel pump is working too hard pushing fuel through a plugged filter, and causing low fuel pressure.

Saturn starts but will not keep an idle and dies


Sounds like you are pretty knowledgeable with the maintenance. With that said do you know if the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECTS) has been replaced? I'd put that at the TOP of the list of parts to replace next. If it hasn't been replaced it is the cause of a lot of problems.

The factory one is plastic and cracks. When it cracks it sends the PCM a signal that the engine is -40F below zero. The PCM will compensate by dumping A LOT of fuel into the engine to try and warm it up. It will cause all kinds of starting and idling problems.

Autozone or the dealer sells the better brass tipped one. The ECTS is located just under and behind the upper radiator hose. You'll need to remove the air intake tubing to see it or get to it. It has two wires going to it and goes into a connector. Squeeze the connector at the "ears" and it will come off. A 10MM DEEP well socket will take it out. Swap it quickly because some coolant will come out (a couple of ounces). Hand tighten it and snug it with the socket (not too much because it will strip out). Connector back on (either direction it's non polar). Put the intake back on and enjoy better starting and idling.

Engine tune complete..map ,iac,tps relaced..start car,put in gear,give it gas ,the car dies ..even in park, you push the gas and the car stalls


Cold starts and untill engine reaches operating temp, The coolant and intake air temp adjust the fuel like the choke in older vehicles. The MassAir Flow sensor adjusts the fuel by measuring the velocity and density of the intake air for proper air/ fuel ration. The MAF can be cleaned with CRC electrical spray cleaner, Do not rub or brush this sensor. It is as expensive as it is fragile. Spray was it as thoroughly as possible. The spray evaps fast so no compressed air. It is located in the intake ducting in a metal section of tubing. make sure your air filter is clean and leak free. Good Luck....Ned

1998 expedition wont start


first of all its not good to spray starting fluid into the intake,its got a plastic "LOWER"intake and it can blow apart and **** too much air through it.Next reset the computer and it can be done by un-hooking the battery cable for a few minutes and if this works and runs for a while and does this again,then reset the computer again.If it does it again then maybe replace the computer..Then also check the fuel pump,it may sound like its working but it could have gotten hot and the plastic gear on the end may not be pushing fuel through when it runs for a while.

1996 Altima cranks, won't start


First, never use starting fluid on a gasoline engine. Check for dirty air filter, then check for Mass air flow sensor (Fault code) . This sensor controls fuel mapping, bad signal here will cause over fueling (black smoke) also called loading up (rich). Stopped up Air filter will affect Mass air flow. Perform OBD II test to prevent buying unneeded parts. Also delete stored codes.

Fuel filter


"Under the vehicle drivers side on the frame rail under the driver side door. There is frame right underneath it but you can access it easily. Be sure to release the fuel pressure before changing the filter. The fuel pressure release valve is located in the engine compartment on top of the engine. It is on the left side of the air intake manifold. It is just a small cap over the valve. Be sure not to lose that cap!! When you change the filter, the filter line on each side of the fuel filter has a quick disconnect type fitting inside the line (similar in principle to a quick disconnect on a gas line or air compressor line). To free the filter from the line you must push in (toward the filter) with a simple tool you can purchase at most auto parts stores for just a few dollars.

Additional Information The tool I was able to rent from NAPA. The guys there were very good to me. Look for about 45 min. of time to complete replacement.




While first off your going to need to relieve the pressure in the system, and if you think your going to just pull the fuel pump relay and then run the engine until it stops to relieve pressure it aint gonna work. Get a bleeder gauge. Your also gonna need a quick disconnect tool. Ford models are usually 1/4" 3/8" or 15/16". Put it on the fuel pump right before the "duck bill" then try to push the line foward. If that doesn't work just try to push the tool into the duck bill then try to push the line foward."
