SOURCE: 88 Toyota Corolla backfires through carburetor.

If that is carbureted, and has a mechanical fuel pump, try running a length of fuel line from inlet side of pump to a gas can that has fresh, clean fuel, and if it runs good that way, you know problem is most likely in the tank. Removing the tank & cleaning it out is best solution from there. I'd even be tempted to add a small bottle or 2 of Lucas Fuel Sytem Cleaner to first fill in clean tank, just to help clean lines as well as carb.

SOURCE: ford taurus won't start when car been running for awhile

Could be your alternator not being able to spin enough current to start the car. Battery alone wont be enough to start the car. The alternator kicks in and helps. So check the alternator out. Take the alternator out and take it to autozone and they will check it for you for free.

Your fuel filter may need to be replaced and the other area that needs to ab addressed would be a ICM (ignition control module) going bad. Common for ether issues to cause you the same problems.
You can have your ICM tested at Auto Zone free of charge and you can also pick up the fuel filter from there.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

I have a 03 kia sorento that i just changed the timing belt and water pump on. It drove fine for about 10 mins but then stalled. After 15 mins it starts, runs for 10 mins, rough again and stalls out.

run fault codes
check for wiring on crank shaft position sensor or cam position sensor/s
it will be something that was affected by the belt replacement procedure

Start great runs 10 min. Dies will not start again

It sounds like a clogged fuel filter. Can you tell me about the vehicles history? The more information the better. When was the last tune-up. Were there any resent repairs performed? Have you done any tests? Like a fuel line pressure test? anything small that you may have noticed while looking over the engine and/or the rest of the car? I hope this helps, Please let me know if you have more details or questions.

Before the car would **** hard at any speed and it might do it again in 30 min. or aweek later. we replaced the cam shaft censor & crank shaft sensor. now it continuely surges mildly and the tacometer...

My car has and is doing the same thing. I replaced the cam and crank sensor less than 3 months ago, then car started dying, not starting, hard to start..etc...just like before I replaced sensors. NOW, it won't start and I am stranded~!!!
I know this is not a solved issue for you, just wanted you to know you weren't alone with issue and I hope we both can find resolve soon!!

My Kia Sorento 04 model developed a recent problem. After running smooth for about 10 mins the engine shuts down and will refuse to start, but after about 1 hr or more it will start and 10 mins it will...

sounds like you have a bad catalytic converter when they clogg your car cant exhaust and creats backpressure that stalls out your car the same thing with your air filter if its dirty your not getting enough clean air to the car... but because it runs 10 min... before it dies and you are getting no warning lights, and the car restarts after it cools down makes me think catalytic converter.... i hope this helps

Car shuts off while driving

if car shuts off while driving it could be a bad crank sensor. a bad crank sensor will shut car off while driving, then it will not start for about 10 minutes, when it starts it runs fine until it goofs up again. the popping could be the sensor for it controls timing along with the cam sensor.

2001 Toyota Highlander won't start

any body bothered to read the fault codes first
just stopping dead can be timing belt failure, crank/cam shaft sensor failure or wire connections failure

2001 GMC Sierra 2500 4WD Starting problems

Now is the time to diagnose it, no one can diagnose a no start problem on a vehicle that runs, Now someone can easily put an OBDII scan tool on it and in about 5 min know what is keeping it from running, Now Im not talking about a $20 code reader Im talkin about a professional OBDII bidirectional scan tool with a scan tool a qualified tech can watch the crank sensor and cam sensor he can monitor fuel pressure with a fuel pressure guage he can fix it much cheaper than anyone can by just changing parts from a friends previous experiences. Sorry this is the easiest least expensive way
