99 C230 slowly dies on road

Some possible solutions (from general experience (i'm 55 yrs old)): 1. Plugged up fuel filter; Replace it. Part costs less than $10.00.If the filter is just in front of the tank, it should take a screwdriver and 15 minutes or less to swap. 2. Water in the fuel tank; Add a bottle of "Heat" to the tank. Cost ~ $3.50 or less. This next may require some trouble shooting or head scratching first. DO #1 & #2 First. (Won't hurt & Doesn't cost much) 3a. Partly clogged fuel line. 3b. Cracked fuel line. (Sucks air into the fuel line) Depends where the fuel pump is.(Also look for fuel leaks, especially around hoses in the fuel line.) 3c. Clogged carb.Filter (if it exists). Verify fuel delivered to Carb by disconnect @ Carb. attach small hose to catch container then turn on (NOT Start) ignition.Should hav a steady flow of fuel for at least several seconds. If so, Replace carb. filter. 4. Weak/ failing fuel pump. Major pain but backyard mech can do it with helpmay take half a day.May need to have a few empty gas cans available to save the existing fuel.. Replacement In-Tank pump assembly should be less than $50.00.

05 Saturn vu just had filter cleaned and can only add fuel slowly.

Changing the filter was not the cause. This is a known problem covered by a Saturn service bulletin. See your dealer or any GM dealer.

Very high idle at start, slowly idles down after hot. Replaced ICV, sometimes lopes, can shut down, restart, idles right.

change fuel filter. add can of SEAFOAM(parts store) to 1/2 tank of PREMIUM gas. let car idle 3-5 minutes. drive hard at least 10 miles.<p>
you have what I call Ethanol Gas Syndrome. the ethanol gets in your system adds water and turns fuel to brown goop, it also carbonizes valves,injectors, and emission parts.<p>
you might want to change f filter after 500 miles(again). add SF every 3-5000 miles, and this will clean the carbon; fix the gas and fuel system, and dry the water. good luck.

What about my gas tank when the pump stops i can add 3 more gallons very slowly

when the gas gets to the top it rushes up while there is still air in the tank. once the fuel starts going down, it takes up the air space. its just a slow procedure for the air space to get taken up, thats all

Why should I wait for 10 miutes to start my car smoothly.

start with a good tune up. fuel filter,air filter,plugs, cap rotor,and wires.make sure the plugs are the correct type. then clean the throttle body inlet,and add an additive to clean the fuel injectors.get a compression test on the engine to see if the cylinders are in balance.

I was sitting idol and put the car in reverse and was able to back out when I put the car in drive and stepped on the gas it cut off . Now it will turn over but will not start. no popping or backfire when...

This might sound stupid but do you have fuel? You might have a faulty gas gauge, add more fuel if anything. Charge or switch the battery, maybe jump start it if it rotates slowly. Check the timing belt and components. It could be fuel related, leaking injectors, faulty fuel pump or pressure regulator etc. Or it could be electrical (short-circuit) check your fuses.

How can I add trans fluid to my 99 caravan? I cannot locate it

If u know u need to add trans fluid, I assume u found the dipstick to check the fluid level? If so, that's where u add the fluid, w/ engine running and using a funnel, slowly add it. Shift thru the gears slowly several times, and check level again. Don't overfill, it's bad for the tranny.
