SOURCE: engine overheated, now car won't start without giving it gas

Some cars cut off as a fail safe to overheating especially on newer cars. The computer controls the fans and if they are not working the computer is probably telling the car to shut off. Have you replaced the motors already, if not, this is what's happening. Once you replace the motors it should run fine. I wouldn't suggest driving it too much with this problem as it may affect the computer by giving it false info.

SOURCE: if i stop or let

Mine did that to me about 4 months ago. I started by changing the fuel filter it ran great for a month. but by doing that it released all the pressure off of the fuel pump which then went out. If you run your vehicle below 1/4 tank it starves the fuel pump. The pump needs that fuel because; The fuel is the lubrication for the pump. Running your tank down consistently over a period of time will short the pump out faster.

SOURCE: 1996 astro van stopped running

Sounds like dirty gas and the fuel filter is clogged...try changing the fuel filter...some are under the car, but most are mounted against the firewall in the engine compartment.

Before you could adjust the mixture, make sure that the spark plug gaps, ignition timing and valve clearance are all OK.
- Start the engine and bring it at operating temperature.
- Adjust the throttle stop screw to bring it at the stable rpm.
- Turn in the idle mixture screw while observing the engine speed till the engine starts to stall. At this point turn out the idle mixture screw and keep on opening slowly till the engine acquire the most stable rpm. Finally adjust the throttle stop screw to obtain the desired idle speed.

Engine acts like it is out of gas keeps stalling i can turn it off for a few minutes will run for a mile or two then does it again

Vent valve has failed closed or cannister is clogged up. Have the evap system checked from the tank to the charcoal canister. If you need to drive to a mechanic, try driving with the gas cap loose.

86 chevy one-ton pickup dually brake problems

If you're not losing any brake fluid then it sounds to me as though the master cylinder is bleeding fluid between to two chambers allowing fluid to pass from one to the other which would decrease the pressure on one of the lines leading to the proportioning valve, thus setting off the 'brake' light.


IF it does NOT have the hydroboost system the following steps MAY help diagnose if it's a booster problem.

(Copied and pasted from a youtube comment)

Test 1) 1. Start the car 2. Let it idle for 2 minutes 3. After 2 minutes turn off the car 4. Pump the brake pedal 3 times 5. The pedal should rise every time if it does then the Booster and Check valve are OK 6. If the pedal doesn't then the is an issue with the either one, run tests 1 and 2.

Test 2) 1. Start the car 2. Let it idle for 2 Minutes 3. After 2 minutes push down the brake pedal and HOLD it 4. While holding the pedal down turn off the car 5. The pedal should NOT rise for at least 30 seconds 6. If it doesn't rise then the Check Valve is good 7. If the pedal rises before 30 seconds then the Check Valve is faulty.

Test 3) 1. Shut off the Engine 2. Pump the brake pedal 4 times 3. On the 4th one keep it pushed down and start the car while holding the pedal down 4. The pedal should sink down. 5. If it sinks, the booster is Fine.

Myself, I'm leaning towards the master cylinder having an internal 'leak' or bypass problem.

Hope this helps.

Ok, it sounds like that the timing is retarded and needs to be advanced. Now when you say revs up and down, is this happening only at idle? Do you happen to have a manual for your truck? If you do, remove the idle air control (IAC) valve and clean the inside of it out. It may be carboned up. With carb. cleaner, clean the inside of the throttle body out. You may see a bunch of black soot looking stuff come out of it. Keep spraying the carb. cleaner until it's comes out clear. Advance the timing 2 to 4 degrees, this will get rid of the "no take off from a dead stop" issues. Get a manual, so you can see how where the components I'm talking about are. Let me know how things go.
