Your fuel filter may be at the end of it's life and will need to be replaced. A dirty fuel filter will cause your engine not to have the proper fuel flow it needs to keep running.
Start with the simple and replace your fuel filter.

2001 audi allroad puttering, then dying when give it gas.


Sounds like dirt made it's way to the fuel pick up from sitting on an angle. You can try removing the sender through the rear seat to detect a clog and or the fuel filter underneath. Honestly..... have it towed to reputable repair shop or dealer for evaluation.

I have a 2001 hyundai sante fe that started making a puttering noise and puttering like it doesn't want to go...almost like it is running out of gas but I have plebty of gas. It almost pops like a firework...


First of all, there are far too many possible causes for the symptom you describe. Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

Smells like gas and when i press on the gas it putters. white smoke coming out of exhaust


White smoke is usually a sign of head gasket problems.Gas smell could be the unburnt fuel from the cylinder head which is the source of the problem.
