Using injector cleaner is your best bet. I recomend lucas or seafoam injector cleaner. You might want to replace your fuel filter first if you have not already done so. Hope this helps.

Hard to start, need to press gas pedal to start


try cleaning the throttle body out first...check engine light on?..possible coolant temp sensor...some problems have multiple causes and are hard to diagnose without actually seeing the vehicle...if you have to hold gas peddle to floor it usually means car is flooded (too much fuel) ...check fuel pressure to see if it bleeds off when not running...could be an indication of leaky injectors or fuel pressure regulator

Hi any solution for my 2005 407 16 hdi pls ?car wont start unless gas pedal pressed,and when it starts the car is not responding for gas pedal ,i press the pedal all the way down and still going slow


Sounds like your gas cable is loose or has slipped off the injector pump. It simply clips onto the pump. Locate your injector/fuel pump and check the wire cable going to it is connected. You should also be able to manually rev up your engine from there by pushing the fuel level back and forth. see how you go. All the best

My truck sputters when i hit rough roads and when i press the gas pedal fast it hesitates


The cause of your Ford Ranger hesitating while pressing the gas pedal can be the fuel filter, change it first since its the cheapest, next would be bad spark plug boots cracked, or spark plug gaps to wide, then lastly dirty fuel injectors.-------------------------------------------autel ds708

Durango starts only when gas pedal is pressed down


Chances are it could be over fueling with an injector stuck open or a vacuum leak from the intake manifold gaskets more than likely

Fuel problem


first i would cover the basics. change the fuel filter, next change the spark plugs, careful this car takes special spark plugs. probably have to get from toyota. next clean the throttle body, pull air nozzle off and open the butterfly so you can spray throttle body cleaner in their and clean with toothbrush. also dont be alarmed after cleaning the throttle body and changing the fuel filter it will be hard starting, hold the gas pedal half way.
