These cars are notorious for having fuel pump resistor's going bad and causing an issue like your having.
Try the procedure located here, if it solves the problem, then you need to replace the resistor.

You can buy the resistor from the dealer or from here: http://www.pfyc.com/pc/WB3006/GPUNDER/Official+GM+Fuel+Pump+Resistor+Kit.html

I REMOVED ALL MY INJECTOR CONNECTORS EXCEPT ONE AND HOLD MY HAND OVER INTAKE TO GET IT TO START FOR A SECOND. 99 HONDA ACCORD 4 CYL. 5SPEED.WHAT COULD THIS BE CAUSED BY?


If it starts while holding your hand over the intake that tells me it is not getting gas. Is your choke working? Have you ever changed your fuel filter? A plugged filter will not let gas to the engine. do you have water in your gas tank? These are ideas to check.Could be dirty gas.

Cold start low ideling


You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

1994 gmc 2500 diesel 6.5 sarts and stalls. When cold it starts good and drives allways on highway. When stopped for 15 minutes or 30 minutes, it will start but stalls after a few seconds. It will start...


You apparently have a leak in your fuel system that allows air in to the fuel system but doesn't leak fuel out enough to be that noticeable. I found this to be true on my 6.2 diesel, so I put light air pressure to the end of a tank vent line and turned on the little compressor. I found the leak spot right away, made the line repair, and have had no more problems with stalling or over-revving.

Car spits and sputters and stalls after driving a while


sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps

Engine stalls while driving. Fuel deprivation?


I am having the exact same problem with my VW Touareg @60,000 miles. Two weeks ago and again today it sputters and stalls shortly after starting. I brought it into the shop and they could not reproduce the problem and said it was fine. Also, they had no ideas when I describes the problem. Anyone know what it going on? I am out of warranty.
