Hello - depending on how much gasoline is left in the tank - you may be able to use a fuel drying additive - such as Heet. If you have over a half tank of fuel left - I would suggest draining it at the point before the fuel filter to a point at or just below 1/4 tank and then refill with fresh fuel and a bottle of Heet. You may want to add a bottle at the next fill up after that as well.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Car is sputtering like got bad gas


have you recently purchased gas? that's 1st question. if you suspect bad gas, add 1 bottle of CLEAR rubbing alcohol to your fuel tank,this will dry up any water that has been added into your fuel tank. or perhaps your fuel injectors may be clogging up,suggest that you add lucas fuel injector cleaner to your fuel tank. you can find the lucas at any auto zone,advance auto parts store. or check your local auto parts store for it. add it to your fuel tank and run the engine,it cleans your fuel injectors as you drive the car,or run the engine.if this does'nt help,i suggest that you check for bad spark plugs,or bad spark plug wires. this will also make your engine sputter.do you have a check engine light on? if so,auto zone or advance auto can code read your car for free. they will plug it up and tell you which sensor is bad or what you need to replace to make the light go off.narrow your search by ruling out this 1st {bad fuel} {spark plugs in need of replacement,or spark plug wires in need of replacement} hoping this helps,and thank you for choosing fixya.com

When driving is get sluggish like it is going to die... and when opening the gas tank there is pressure (hissing)... after pressure is releaved from the gas tank the sluggishness seems to stop...


sounds like clogged or clogging fuel injectors,sorry for delay in the answer in your problem, been busy w/other issue . suggest easy solution to your problem, purchase lucas fuel injector cleaner,add to your fuel tank. cost $5.00 treats 20 gallons of fuel. just add the ammount that you need. follow the directions on the bottle, you can purchase at auto zone or advance automotive if need be to clear up the sputtering problem. note' there will always be hissing from the gas cap[normal] due to pressure from your fuel pump,it pumps around 180lbs of pressure to the fuel rail that operates your engine the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail;regulates the pressure to your injectors, that's what makes your engine run so smoothly.

When u push on the gas it spits and sputters, it ran out of gas like 2 weeks ago and yes sometimes i do let it run low on gas. It spits and sputters when i turn a corner or go up a hill


Could be a clogged fuel filter, and or dirty fuel injectors. Try running some strong injector cleaner through it. It may take 2 or 3 times before it cleans the injectors out fully.

Integra was sputtering like it was running out of gas. Just now wont idle. If not held above RPM's it dies. When it died, it will turn over but doesnt seem to get gas going. Thinking its the fuel pump....


As the fuel train which supplies the injectors w/ the needed gas...Im quite sure that if you purge the fuel train of air your problem will cease.hope this helps ."Reno"

97 kia sephia, replaced battery, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter, fuel filter, added heet water removal and lucas fuel injector. It sputters, backfires/pops when accelerating and it has no power,...


As you have replaced all the obvious things that could cause the symptoms it may be a good idea to have a cylinder compression test done , if comes back OK i'd try a fuel addative , one that covers the catalytic convertor , as there are many sensor's involved in the fuel/exhaust system as you know , this addative will clean any residue affecting there reading's , hope this helps

My 97 deville sputters when you press on the gas


Start by putting Lucas fuel stabilizer ,this will remove water in the tank and stabilize bad gas. It also cleans injectors some what. If this doesn't work move on to your fuel pressure regulator and make sure u have good injectors. Also replace fuel filter, easy to do with the purchase of a five dollar tool at any parts store.
