2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi starts and immediately dies; will not run without foot constantly on gas pedal

Well pumping the pedal on a fuel injected car does nothing. If there are no trouble codes stored in the computer, look for excessive fuel from the injectors or the fuel pressure regulator. Or lack of air thru the idle air control valve.

MY truck is fuel injected what would make it so i have to hold down gas pedal to finally get it to start then die

Sounds like you have some injector problems or the fuel pressure regulator. If the check engine light is not on, I would look for something allowing extra fuel into the engine.

My 93' Dakota keeps dieing when I come to a stop. It does not do it every time ~ just now & then. The only way I can get it to start is to hold the gas pedal all the way down & turn the ke

Okay, I'm guessing you have a 4-clyinder Dakota has throttle body fuel injection. I have seen this kind of problem before, but I could be way off base. Are you getting really lousy gas mileage as well? If the coolant sensor fails to the ECM, the ECM will think that the coolant temperature is very low and cause a massive amount of fuek to be injected into the intake (think of the old-style choke with fast idle). This causes the engine to flood and die. Restarting requires the gas pedal to be on the floor (clear flood) mode. Driving at speed may not be noticeable, but there may be some lack of power as the engine is still getting way too much fuel. TGo test this, do the following. When the engine is acting up and is warm, gain access to the throttle body by removing the air box over it. Have someone crank the engine while observing the throttle body injector. A normal, warm engine will spray a fine mist on the walls of the throttle body and will hum slightly. If there is a torrent of fuel being sprayed into the engine, then check your coolant sensor circuit for the ECM.

Fuel Injection Problem

Is your cat. convertor blocking up? If it is this condition, it could very well be the problem. Disconnect the convertor start the car & see if it takes the gas well. If it does, change the cat. convertor. Good luck!

1991 Cadillac Brougham not getting gas

The fuel pump is located on the frame undrneath the passenger side rear door.If you have the throtle body injection used on the 305 engine the electric fuel pump puts out about 8 psi.
Sounds like you have a clogged fuel pump. Not that bad to change if you have the special tool needed to remove the fuel lines to the pump. Ask your local Auto parts store for help.
