I don't know for sure, but I suspect the gas cap seal is leaking. Check the gas cap seal and mating surface for dirt. Buying a new cap might also be an option if you want to try that.

It is odd that there are no codes registered. Have the scanner connected while you simulate the condition and get the check engine light.

Since we do not have codes handy I would suspect, bad wiring. Have the fuel pressure tested. The problem may be from the lack of fuel being supplied even if the throttle is stepped on. Check the sparks from all of the plugs. When you check the sparks from the hi-tension wire, do it one at a time to check which causes the sputter.

Other than that it could be loose wiring or vacuum lines. If you have carb cleaner handy or throttle spray, try spraying the intake of the car. At times it may help.

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

Sputtering BMW

this could be caused by poor gas, or intake and exhaust vanos solenoids, first try filling the tank with high test gas with low ethenol content,run through a couple of tanks, if still occuring your solenoids may be gummed up, they are located at the front of the cyl head and help in by 1 10mm screw, remove and blow clean with compressed,also be sure to change your oil more freequently than cbs indicator suggests.

2004 Pontiac Bonneville Check Engine Light

do you fill the gas tank with the key on?

Try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour an then reconnect and drive for 10 miles. It may run rough for this period. This will clear codes from memory.

dear sir the flashing check engine light means the truck was misfiring at the time of the incident .If the light is still on you can go to auto zone they will pull the codes for you and reset the light if you like.but if running good now then probably nothing to worry about .

two baic reasons... you can buy it... not on purpose of course but water gets into the gas station tanks for a couple reasons.
second if you happen to live in an area where fall is fast approaching and the temperature is changing during the day/evening you'll get condensation. just to give you an example.... when you go out in the morning to jump in your car you'll see a layer of moisture on your car.... it's not restricted to the outside of the car. one way to avoid that is to keep your tank completely filled with gas. considering the price of gas you would need to take out a second mortgage on your home to do that.
it's handy to buy a six pack of those little bottles of gas line antifreeze and keep them in your trunk... every time you fill up the tank add one.

pretty much any auto store will have them.... even walmart etc will have them as well.
