D it dies out and hard to start again

It could well be the fuel pump. Or maybe a fuel filter. Replace the filter if easily accessible. Even if it is not easily accessible, you can get a gauge to check for sufficient fuel pressure. You will be working with gas at that point. Unless you are experienced working on cars and for your own safety, get a reputable mechanic to check the pressure.

I have a 1998 626 Mazda and it's been having some occasional jerking.

have the fuel pressure tested to be sure its at the correct psi and does not loose pressure even after turning off engine. is the check engine light on? if yes have it scanned and that will help to pinpoint the problem...

My missus put e10 in bmw96 m3 model & then it keeped cutting out power wise,then completely now won"t start at all.

Hi first thing I would do is drain your fuel tank. E10 can be great fuel for later model vehicles designed to run on it, or even occasionally for those that are not. but it is a hard fuel to regulate as the mixture has to be very precise. after draining your fuel tank i would work backwards towards your motor, so this is the order that i would flush and do. -remove fuel pump and clean (checking for a filter in it) -remove fuel filter -flush fuel lines - remove injectors and have cleaned ( will also improve fuel economy and power) -refit injectors -fit NEW fuel filter reasemble.
once you have filled your fuel tank back up with clean fuel (best bet is to use a high octane Premium fuel) turn your ignition on, but do not start car. wait for the fuel pump to prime (as it should be loud as it will be empty), for a couple of minutes then start car. it may take a few attempts to start once cleaned as the fuel system will be completely dry, but dont let that scare you off.
i hope i have helped

Help. 2000 Avalon Toyota upon starting, "sometimes" has sputtering and stalling. I will give it gas, and wait until warned up. Or, I will drive in 2nd gear so the RPMs will go up. Sometimes, car works...

  1. toyota has an idle air valve
  2. locate the valve on the throttle body
  3. unplug and remove it as an assembly
  4. off the car it can be disassembled into 2 pieces
  5. one has the wiring connection
  6. the other is the air valve shuttle
  7. clean the shuttle and actuate the valve manually until it moves freely.
  8. install and retest

1994 f350 turbo diesel won't start

Just with what you have said I would say its time to drain and or replace your fuel filters (there are usually 2: a primary and a secondary)

There could be a clog in the fuel filter, kinked lines somewhere (so check the lines make sure they are working) you could have an internal fuel filter leak (so it just returns to the fuel tank) or a fuel leak elsewhere.

By the way, be careful with diesel fuel lines, depending on the fuel pump (mechanical or electric) pressures range from 3,000-25,000 PSI maybe even higher!

Check the lines, and drain or replace fuel filters and let me know what you got.

Hope this helps you out.
