    yes, for some reason the car isn't dying anymore. I cleaned the plugs and changed the wires, one was really rusty inside. checked the distributor cap and rotor. Now sometimes when you start it acts like it wants to start but then wont fire up and wines down. It doesn't do it every time. Sometimes it starts up fine. I am wondering if it may be the fuel pump, seems as though the carberator isn't getting the fuel initially to fire. What do you think?

It on the frame ahead of the left rear axle housing.
A tune up,clean the throttle body/.check catalytic converter,spray some ether very limited into the throttle body and see if it fires.

    Try to spray ether into the carb very limited.

    If it keeps starting that way you probably do have a fuel pump broblem leaking back/

    Is there a gas smell in the oil or overfilled?

you need a diagnostic from a good garage. If a clean fuel filter helped it may be something else associated with the fuel supply.

Stalls when put into gear

many things can cause this. the most common problem would be that the timing is slightly off. (fixed sometimes by adjusting the distributor) it could also be a bad fuel pump (or clogged fuel filter) this would allow enough fuel to run the engine in park but not enough to run the engine under stress. clogged air filter could also cause this (not allowing enough air into the cylinders). I would change the air filter and fuel filter. then crank the vehicle and slowly turn the distributor (finding the best idle position) then see what happens. lastly replace the fuel pump.

My car keeps stalling. I had my oil changed, oil filter and fuel filter, put carborater cleaner in the gas tank ...nothing has helped. Any ideas? I haven't had a tune up in 3+ years, could it just

It could need plugs, or something else. Plugs are designed to last 100,000 miles but no guarantee.
Often times stalling is caused by a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve. I would have a mechanic check the valve and also see if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

1998 s10 sometimes will not start. Have new fuel lines, tank, and pump on it. Trying to fix it have replaced Fuel Pump relay seemed to help then started again. Truck starts, but stalls out when started...

Am I correct in understanding that the truck will start and stall out and then keep running on the restart? If so I would be looking at the cold start circuit. Perhaps a loose wire or corrosion. Maybe the cold start valve is going bad. Hope this helps.

I have an 1990 buick regal custom and stalls when im griving it then dies can anyone help me on how to fix it.

Sounds to me like a fuel filter.When was the last time it was changed?Because if a car starts and runs till you give it gas under load then dies it is a fuel problem.Start by chaging fuel filter and if problem still persists then next thing to check is fuel pump.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1999 Honda Passport? It keeps stalling, so I thought I would check that first.

The fuel filter is located under the vehicle, passenger side, below the seating area, mounted on the frame rail, in the fuel line.

My 1999 accord stalls while driving or idling but starts right back up again and runs perfectly untill a few minutes later the same thing happens again and some times it can go the distance with no...

You may have some chunky contaminants in your fuel tank that are blocking the supply line,screen sock, or fuel filter. The screen sock is located inside the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump and filters the fuel going into the supply line for the fuel pump. Your fuel filter is typically mounted under the back seat behind the driver, but Honda tends to move things around a bit so you may want to verify that location with your local auto parts store. If you run the tank below 1/8 frequently, that tends to draw the chunks into the sock, line, and fuel filter.You may be able to just change the fuel filter and use a concentrated quality fuel Injection / system cleaner like Justice Brothers fuel injection cleaner . Avoid "cheap" cleaners - all they do is break up your money, not the contaminants in the system. Fuel injected systems run at a much higher pressure than carbureted systems, so be careful when releasing the pressure from the filter to avoid getting sprayed. If you don't have a manual, then I would suggest getting a Chiltons repair manual for the specific steps required in changing the filter - as well as the specific location, as it may also be under the vehicle in various places. Afterwards, try not to let your car get below 1/4 tank to keep this from happening in the future, and use a can of Injection cleaner about every 10th tank fill. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

When starting the car it kinda stalls

Could be as something as simple as a plugged fuel filter to spark plugs to a sensor going bad. Could also just be a bad tank of gas. You could try running some fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank and maybe replace the fuel filter. Also clean or replace you air filter. And the spark plug electrodes might be worn out and need replacement. Just trying to give you some simple maintenence ideas that do not break the bank and may fix your problem. There are many variables that can cause stalling. You might need to have a mechanic hook it up to a diagnostic computer and start the car. When it is stalling they will be able to see exactly what the cause for the stalling is and fix it.
