Sounds like injectors are not firing, check fuse of the injectors, check voltage of injectors if fuse is okay, voltage should be around 5V. If okay, you can check the ground side of injectors with a noid lite. If voltage is there, and no ground side, computer issue, or bad wiring. A good scanner can see if the injector voltage is okay.

When i give gas i hear a noise almost like an exhaust leak


you could have the start of an leaking manifold to find out if this is starting to happen spray some carb cleaner over the inlet manifold while engine is a temp if any changes happen when you spray an area i.e engine idles faster or cuts out then this is were you problem is going to start from. also check the air line with the cleaner. if every thing is fine then its just an intake clean is needed take the top off the inlet spray the carb cleaner in there let it sock for awhile and wipe out ht muck etc. don't do it with the engine running. after a good clean change the air filter. also on some models there is a secondary air intake vale check this as the vale can fail. when the engine valve fails can sound like the engine is high performance but with out the power. usually sits next to the exhaust manifold has 2 pipes coming out of the exhaust manifold to a pipe with a vale on it then a rubber pipe out to the front of the engine bay. some have fans fitted and some don't depends on engine number fitted. will have a filter at the end.

I can't start the engine after running out of gas


if it's a diesel, it needs to be bled of air before it will start. If it's a gas engine, make sure you've got a few gallons in the tank because not enough gas is getting to the pump. you could try start spray or carburetor cleaner to get it going and the gas might start circulating. take the air filter cover off and spray some into the tube towards the motor and it will start

I have 1997 grand caravan it starts but will not stay running what could it be wrong


You might have more than one problem...first check the IAC (Idle Air control) valve located on
the intake plenum, if possible pull it out and spray it with choke/carb cleaner.
I'm guessing you are hearing the fuel pump coming on when you turn on the key...if you
don't know, check it. Key to on (not start) and the fuel pump will bring up the fuel
pressure and cut off.

I haven't had experience with the '98 but those caravans are known for having dash
problems...occasionally it requires replacing the cluster, if you are lucky you may be able
to reseat the cables going to it (or try gently moving them around). Your symptoms are
a little confusing since you say they won't power up...do you have movement in the gas
gauge at all? I had one that had similar symptoms and if I smacked the top of the
dash everything would come on...worth a try just to see if anything changes...just don't
hit it hard enough to break anything (or hurt yourself obviously).

Since the van is starting I would rule out the relays (and fuses)...and it's running too long
for it to be the cutout relay (loss of ignition, which cuts off the fuel). If you give it some
pedal (gas) will it stay running? If so, do the IAC thing...so try to determine if it's a idle
only problem or it just dies in general

How do u get the 1990 DODGE ramcharger to stay idleing


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My car has been sitting for 2 years and won't start. The engine turns over but it sounds like not getting gas. I read somewhere to spray gas starting inside air intake valve. Where is the air intake v


Safer is to use 'carburetor cleaner' which is also flammable but a little less dangerous than using gasoline.After sitting a long time, our modern gasoline gets tired; never allow something to sit so long without adding some 'fuel stabilizer.'If possible with your car, I would drain (siphon) the tired gas out and replace it with a few gallons of fresh.
Really tough starting problems can also be overcome with 'starting fluid' which is pure ether and very flammable.Any of these may require the removal of the engine air filter so the liquid gets into the intake manifold.
Stale gasoline can also gum up the fuel injectors which may have to be removed for service if none of the fluids causes the engine to fire.

Vehicle rev's or accelerates fine when started for just a minute. Then it wont rev up. When you push on the gas it just struggles. Wont really go much above 1500-1700 rpm. idles ok. It is a gasonline...


that sounds like a fuel delivery problem. either the filter is clogged or the pump is not delivering the right pressure. i assume you have no check engine light. this would not set one but other problems like sensors would. being 11 yrs old i would not be surprised if the fuel pump was worn out. good luck

2004 Kia rio. starts when petrol is placed in the air filter but when runs out engine stalls. Replaced fuel pump, but makes no difference. Any other ideas? Stumped....


Did you change the gas line filter ?
Are you sure theres power to new fuel pump ?
Does the fuel pump make a small humming noise when you turn the key to the start possition ?
Is the fuel pressure regulator working ?

It's the automatic choke!

The choke is "closed" or barely open... When cold, the engine needs a RICH mixture (more gasoline, less air). When the engine warms up, it requires a LEAN mixture (less gas, more air).

It is probably creating BLACK tailpipe smoke ... that means unburnt gasoline. (Blue smoke is OIL, white smoke is WATER).

Put the parking / emergency brake ON.
1. Remove air cleaner assembly from intake, use a carb cleaner spray or throttle body spray cleaner and spray just a little. (AutoZone $5)
2. Find the accelerator2.gif arm under the hood.
3. start car, rev the engine to make sure how to operate the accelerator from under the hood.
4. Carefully spray into carb / throttle body and work the accelerator ... don't let the engine die...
5. Watch out for "backfire"... it may create a small flame out of the carb. It will extinguish itself in one second.

6. You may need to do this two, three times.
7. Add a "complete fuel system2.gif cleaner" to your next tank of gas ($8).

That's it! ... pretty cheap, too.

Hope this helps!

2005 MPV shuts off after I let go of the gas after


I'd pull the "idle air control valve " (located on side of throttle body near front) off, and use some throttle body spray cleaner on it & the port it came out of. Spray pintle (pointed part) good to remove any gunk etc. Re-install, it & try it. if it cures your problem for a while & starts to act up again, replace it.
