The spark you are getting is to weak.Check and clean the wires from the coil pack.If they are ok then change the coil pack.Then the crank sensor.Hope that was helpfull.

Sputters after driving a few minutes, tries to stall out.


1st move is to ck the fuel PSI & emissions. Possible cooling system cause.Scan computer & check sensor readings & the emissions readings are the first moves. Check spark plugs, ignition spark etc. Good luck

My 2004 gmc envoy xuv sputters when driving it


Get codes read by auto parts store, and most do it for little or nothing.
the code(s) will give me a better idea of what may be happening.
Spark plugs could be worn out(anything over 80k miles)
Fuel regulator, injector(s), fuel pump also could be at fault.
one more a vacuum leak.
Don't be afraid to ask questions, and there aren't any dumb questions.
Codes don't give you the part to be replaced, but give you an area to test in.

Code 12 means you are in test mode, code 34 is a problem with the map sensor, and code 35 is a problem with the idle control valve.
But those two codes could show up if you disconnect those sensors or if the engine is having other problems.
In situations where the engine stalls, it is very easy to overlook something or assume a component is working.
Treat it like a no start. Pull a plug wire and watch the spark as the engine dies. Use carb cleaner or starting fluid to boost fuel supply.
You'll have to figure out if it is loosing spark or fuel to proceed.
Things like the coil, the stator in the bottom of the dist, or a relay can be the cause. Even low fuel pressure.

1988 caprice classic with 305 engine. car sputtered and then shut off. good crank and spark, no start. took off fuel line, cranked and fuel puoring out, so don't think it is fuel pump. reconnected...


Your fuel pump my still be pumping fuel But it my not be pumping with enough force to get it through the carb. I would try replacing the fuel pump.

LeSabre won't start...please suggest...


To check fuel supply, spray carb cleaner into air inlet while cranking. If there is no fuel, engine will start for a second on what you sprayed. if nothing, likely either there is enough fuel and plugs are already wet, or there is another problem. (perhaps contaminated fuel?)
