Fuel filter is most likely cause, these need replacing after a while.
Did you run the tank down to near empty? when this happens the debris at the bottom of fuel tank gets taken into the filter and blocks it.

I have a 2002 ford windstar and when I pump gas it spitts it back out

Most fuel necks have a breather pipe running up the outside visible from underneath. Check to see if its kinked or crushed. Some vehicles unfortunately have a bad slow fill.
If you happen to spot another at a gas station, put on a smile and ask if their's is the same.

Why does my 2004 Trailblazer run rough at stops and AC is on? Doesn't stall and temp. is fine. Also idle gage seems fine. It also sputters when shutting engine off. Just had the motor mounts...

ONe of the "easy" fixes is buy a can of throttle body cleaner. Remove the air intake near throttle boddy and clean the inside of throttle body as best you can this should help it. If it doesnt have it checked out it could be more advanced problem. Good Luck.

My fuel gage will not read how much gas I have.The needle is **** under the resting can it be reset?

check fuses if ok there is a problem with the sending unit in tank. in some cases the tank has no ground , givin ground to the fuel tank from either frame or boddy may help.

My 2000 rx300 is not holding its idle rpm when i try and start it. It runs though if I hold the gas pedal. what do I need to check or what do I need to replace to fix this problem?

I have a 2001 RX300 and I had this EXACT problem just a year ago. I recommend cleaning your idle air control valve. It does not need replaced. If you take it to a dealership, they want to replace it for $400.00. Just clean it, trust me it works. I cleaned mine with throttle body cleaner and I have not had the problem since. I did this at 80,000 miles and I now have 120,000 miles on it. Go to to see more info about this condition. I used this site to get the steps on how to access the idle air control valve (it's underneath the right side of the throttle boddy). Clean it with Q-tips and throttle body cleaner - this is what worked for me. The I.A.C.V. is a round mechanism that needs to turn within it's housing - when it gets dirty then it doesn't turn and this causes a rough idle or it causes the car to stall. The I.A.C.V. gets dirty because of the recirculation of smog (for emission controls).

My truck is had to start or stalling


I have had to work on those chevy trucks that do this 9 times out of 10 the throttle body needs cleaned. you can trace the throttle boddy by seeing when somebody pushes the gas pedal in the cable opens up the throttle body, the correct way is to take it off completly and get carb cleaner or kerosene and a old tooth brush and scrub it out but if you just want to get quick results leave it on and by carb cleaner or that type of a spray and sparay some in there scrub what you can reach and start the car or spray some while its running just BE CAREFULL !!! Any questions let me know and please rate me if you get a chance..

Engine stalls after starying

I HAD THE same problem.... 87,000 2000 grand cherokee 4.7l
when i let off the gas it might stall. happens 1 to 4 times a day.
so far i have
replaced the crank shaft sensor - it stopped stalling for 3 days $130
cleaned the throttle boddy free
replaced the throttle position sensor $72
replaced the idle air control sensor $132
replaced the map manafold airflow sensor $125
no luck it is still stalling. by the way i have done all the work myself. it was about 30 minutes for most parts
i just ordered a rebuilt ecu or pcu engine control unit. they program in the vin, mileage and part nbr so you gc will recognize it. $185
installed ECU 2 days ago...... so far so good.
good luck
