    yes, the filter is clean, and we put air pressure thru the holes, we connect a hose from the gas tank straight to the engine and it starts and stays on just fine.

    Why do you think that? Have you checked the fuel filter?

First you need to check if the fuel pump is working....
go under the car and have somebosy open the ignition..listen for a buzzing sound...that's the pum..if you don't llisten that...check you fuses to see if you have a fuse for the ffuel pump...I suspect thats your problem..

98 town and country not starting half of time. Took gas line off at engine; seems not enough gas pressure and gas not getting to engine. Thank you.

Hi, Your engine has to prime a high fuel pressure to start your engine. I would first replace the fuel filter and see if that helps. If not, your fuel pump is failing and needs to be replaced.

put your hand on the heater hoses going into the cabin. Carefully. they should both be hot. If so, you have decent circulation. Does your car have a temperature gauge? When this happens, is the temp normal? Is the check engine light on? You may have a failing thermostat. Sticking open at times.

Could be two things (both of them, not just one):
The ECM is responsible for advancing the ignition timing to give your car a boost when passing.

The EGR is not operating the exhaust valve correctly. It is supposed to close the valve when idling and open otherwise. This mor affects idle, not so much driving.

Have the engine code checked at AutoZone free and get the codes and explanation from them. We will analyze the codes based on your description of the problem(s).

You can try to reset the throttle body by opening the hood and drivers door then turning your key to the accessory position. You will hear the throttle body whir and click. It may take up to two minutes. Afterward, the car will relearn your habit of driving and adjust accordingly.

No passing gear

My car did (past tense) the same thing. The service engine light is flashing until you let off the gas because raw fuel is being dumped into the catalytic converter. The transmission won't shift because the converter is plugged. When you push the pedal to the floor the transmission computer holds the transmission in gear. Meanwhile the engine computer is raising the rpms. It will seem like a transmission problem but it is more likely a plugged catalytic converter. I had converter changed. The engine has A LOT more power, great acceleration and the transmission shifts perfectly.
