For a problem like this there could be many things wrong. Fuel pump, filter, fuel pressure regulator, clogged injectors on the throttle body, bad plugs, distributor cap, rotor or plug wires or just bad gas. I would start with the cap/rotor. It is the easiest thing to get to and easiest to check. After that the plugs and wires. If all of this is good use the check engine light and pull the codes. This will tell you if any sensors are out. After that if the problem is still there run a heavy dose of fuel system cleaner through the gas and then change the fuel filter. If none of this helps the last thing it could be is the timing. If it is hard to start and wants to die out while idling the timing could be off or the vacumn advance hose could be disconnected. If any of this helps or you just want more information please feel free to contact me,.

I have a 1987 caprice clasic with a 305 v8 2 barrel that I have to pump the gas pettle to keep it running. could this be the carb or the fuel pump?


this problem is the carburetor which probably has dirt in it plugging up the circuits or a stuck float and when you push on the gas pedal you are supplying fuel through the accelerator circuit.it can be rebuilt or you can buy a rebuilt carburetor,but note you don`t know how long a rebuilt carb has been sitting on the shelf there by it may have dried out gaskets and accelerator pump,and be in worse shape than you own carb.

The car in question is a 96 Nissan Sentra. After the car starts it dies out and the engine is running really loud. We got the car started by pressing the gas pedal down all the way. What do you think that...


This most probably is an issue called "drowning" by some mechanics. There is too much fuel inside your carb and not enough air that is why when you push the pedal all the way it starts. When you step on the gas more air is let through to match the fuel. Remember, do not pump the gas pedal because it also pumps more fuel into the carb even when not running, this will cause starting issues.

Truck won't keep running


Try giving the intake air control motor a few whacks with the handle end of a screw driver. You'll find that on the throttle body, it looks like a little metal cylinder with an electrical connector on it. While someone is keeping the truck running, a few light whacks will do. If it keeps running after that, replace the IAC motor.

High external temperature causes engine to die


Sounds like your ECT (engine coolant temp.) sensor has gone bad. What happens is when the truck is cold, the ECT acts like a choke on a carb. When the truck gets to operating temperature, the ECT tells the computer that it doesn't need the little extra fuel anymore. What's happening with your is the ECT isn't telling the computer that the engine is at operating temp. It's acting like the choke on the carb. is stuck shut. The computer is being told the engine temp is at 40 below still.
