Have you had your fuel tank flushed there may be small piece of grit that is clogging the fuel pump, after sitting over night, The pressure now released comes loose only to reappear later, If this is happening more as tank near empty This is most likely the problem Had a similar issue with my 89' 300TE and she's still going strong after 360,000 miles

Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.


When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

My truck some times dies on exceleration and ruff ideal than runs fine


I had the same problem with my 93 K2500 it only has 159000 on it. It was my catalytic converter, drop the Y pipe going into your exhaust manifold then drive it. You should feel an immediate difference. You can replace it or cut it open if your state doesn't have emission laws. It cost me around 250 and a couple hours of work.

My 2003 pt cruiser ran out of gas and now wont start. what can i do? we we at a stop sign and it just quit running. this was on a city street. my wife let it run way out of gas. the vehicle has 107,000...


Are you still with the car? If so stop texting and call a friend to come with some gasoline ( 3-5 gal. should be plenty). Put that in the tank and then turn the key on and wait for about 10 sec. then turn key off. Repeat this two mor times. Then try to start the car normaly and drive to the gas station and fill the car up. Oh and stop running out od gas!

My car was running beautifully, had a oil change and filters change, again drove beautifully for 3 days, then overnight, it starts great, but shakes between 5mph-25 mph, and is sluggish when i take off...


Have your fuel filter changed, your fuel filter may be at the end of it's life time and is dirty. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure that the fuel system is running at 100%. Try that first and if there is an Auto Zone around your area, have the car scanned for the DTC codes. Auto Zone scan free of charge and can give you the recommended steps to addressing the issue that is causing your engine problem. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon.
