    Did you buy it private or dealer?

  • stepmckirgan Apr 27, 2010

    Do you normally get fuel from the that gas station, if no that could be suspect.

Possible internal starter problem. Try tapping on starter motor while key is held in crank position. If vehicle starts, suspect a starter motor problem and replacement will be required

Sputtering engine while in passing gear


At 150000 miles the plugs start to fail under hard acceleration the higher compression blows out the spark before it ignites the fuel. Random cylinder misfire causes the check engine light to come on. change the plugs!

Check the plugs and see if they have fuel on them if not check the catalytic converter it could be plugged and putting back pressure on the engine and not allowing the fuel into the cylinders. Can you spray fuel into the throttle body and get it to run. If so you may have a fuel pump problem or fuel filter issue. I am betting on the cat. you can pull the o2 sensor ahead of the cat and the engine should run if it is plugged. It will run rough but at least it should start.

It sounds like the engine is misfiring. Get the code read at local shop or auto store. It should tell you which cylinder is misfiring then you can begin diagnosing the problem on that cylinder, whether it be a spark plug, coil, fuel injector, or you could have lean codes in which case you will have either a vacuum leak or low fuel pressure. Without the diagnostic trouble code it is hard to tell what is going on.

MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR? 1991 Dodge Stealth RT


Yeah sound like the Mass Airflow sensor (MAF). This is one of those items you really shouldn't get at a junk yard.

HI I JUST BOUGHT A 1990 300ZX2X2 AND TODAY IT STARTED RUNING ROUG


try to start the car and unplug the coil packs one at a time. listen for changes in the way the car runs. it sounds like you have a dead cylinder or two. be aware of VERY small changes in the sound as i had mine running on 2 of six cylinders and it still ran. if you notice that you have a dead cylinder check the coil packs for corrosion on the connectors if they are fine. investigate the ptu (on the passenger side timing belt cover there are 2 versions the old version is known for failing and knocking out a few cylinders http://www.mdsmarthome.com/z/Z%20Tech/Z%20Tech%20PDF's/PTU%20Repair.pdf

rough idle could be caused by vacuum leaks and or incorrect timing should be 15 degrees before tdc

Check engine light is on and now the truck is spitting and sput


i would take it back. they should cover it. sounds like mass air flow sensor. if it was barelly detailed it water might of seeped into the intake thus sucking small amount of water which then causes sputtering and a little lack of power.
