Turn the ignition to the "on" position and listen for the fuel pump. You should be able to hear it running. If it is running, then you may want to put on a new fuel filter. It could be dirty or clogged. You could also check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Hope this helps.

Acts like it isn't getting fuel, chokes out


Hello,

Do you have an engine light? Throwing a code?
Just does this at idle or when driving/acceleration?
Acting strange changing symptoms (E.G.--idle to acceleration to black smoke out exhaust, etc.)? Plenty of Gas in tank?

I am thinking: No engine light
Clog in fuel filter
intermittent fuel pump problem
A vehicle starting sensor (E.G.--Throttle Position Sensor (TPS))
Main computer
Engine Light: Pull Code
Sensor

I hope this helps.

91geo prism had a dead battery,jump started it And the battery light stayed on, so I put a new battery in and will not start but spins over great. Found the 30 amp fuse bad on the positive cable and...


You will need to check all the fuses, the main and inside fuse box. for the amp fuse to blow the jumper cables or battery were installed backwards. check all fuses i think you will find another bad one. as far as the batttery light being on, you may have a bad alternator. the car will run until it drains the new battery. the battery light may still be on once you get car started. have the charging system checked.


Again i think its just a bad fuse, the car was starting fine until the battery replacement.

The last thing is that sometimes they loose the idle memory or get flooded from connecting battery with key on, try to start by controlling the gas. hold gas pedal to floor and try to start engine. asengine starts slowly release gas. if car stalls out when gas pedal is let go then restart and hold gas pedal a little for about 2min then release and let idle, good day.

I have a 1995 Buick Regal with a 3.8 V6. Car will start just fine on a cold start but will not continue to run unless you hold the engine on at least 3000 rpms for about 30 seconds. it will then idle just...


i think you might be right it sounds like your engine is getting over fed fuel you are probably not getting very good fuel mileage either the 3.8 and 5.0 would defintely require the same volume of fuel it is probably playing havoc on the pressure regulators i would get another fuel pump and start there

The gas gauge on our 1995 Jaguar XJ-6 has been malfunctioning for several months. It can read zero or full or anything in between, even after a fillup, but usually reads zero until the car burns some of...


There is a FLOAT in the gas tank that bobs up & down in the gas in which the gauge gets a signal from to let u know your fuel level. they can go bad & send erratic readings to the gauge. (like a toilet bowl float) That is the most common cause of your problem. Good Luck

Dodge stratus check engine light


Try disconnecting the battery for a few seconds, unless you have some anti-theft system on your vehicle, that may get messed up by the disconnect. If you do, then I;d wait it out, I think it's about 50 starts & it should disappear on it's own, if that doesn't work, zip in to dealer & see what they'd charge to reset it for you.
