My club car gas golf cart was running good then al the sudden wont go over idle speed


Perhaps it's a stuck carburetor float valve, bad fuel pump (if it has one) or clogged fuel filter.

05 Altima cranks but wont start, new cam and crank sensor, new battery, fuel line is ok???


If the car sat, would bet all the money in my pockets that it's bad gas. Adding fresh gas won't solve the problem. You need to add a fuel stabilizer ( purchased for under $10 at Autozone) that you just add directly to the tank.
It could also be the case that the coil wires are dry and cracked from sitting, cause sparks to ground out.

Whenever your car won't start it is always one of three things-- fuel, spark or air. I hear you saying fuel is coming in, but to be sure you could try spraying a quick spray of carb cleaner or better yet starter fluid into the air intake and see if it briefly starts. If it does, then shuts down immediately, it's a fuel issue.

If not, then it is likely spark (air is usually not restricted but you may as well check the air filter and throttle body and make sure they aren't clogged. )

Check the spark in each cylinder. The problem could be a bad coil or fouled plugs.

If fuel, air and spark all check out, then the problem could be timing but this is highly unlikely.

97cc baja doodle bug won't start


Assuming that the engine can be turned over with the starter, the most likely culprit is it's not getting enough fuel, especially if it's been sitting for 6 months or more. AT YOUR OWN RISK, remove the air duct after the air cleaner and pour a shot-glass full OR LESS of gas directly into the carburetor or throttle body. It should start and at least run briefly. If it does, then add at least 3-5 gallons to the fuel tank. If you've run out of gas, then adding just one gallon is not enough. Today's fuel-injection systems have pressurized fuel lines which need at least a gallon just to fill all the pumps and filters between the tank and the engine. Good Luck, TechJoel

After driving the car for awhile, sometimes when I go to slow down and stop at the stop light the car cuts off. It starts back up but takes a moment before I can get it in drive again. I'm not sure what's...


Hello sizerr1441, while it could be many things, the most common fix for what you have described is getting a new air filter, it's atleast a cheap place to start.
If your air filter is pretty new, you may try adding some fuel treatment to your gas to clean out the fuel injectors. WARNING, make sure you read the directions on the bottle. DO NOT add a full bottle to less tha a full tank of gas or you could damage the valves.
Good luck my friend!

Having what i assume is a fuel system problem. I've replace the fuel filter, fuel pump, sending unit, and fuel relay all with brand new parts, but the car will either not start or die while i'm driving...


Once the car has died, open the fuel cap. If you hear a sound like air being sucked into the tank though the filler pipe, you may have a blocked breather pipe on the tank. Safest bet would be to locate the pipe and remove whatever the restriction is. Easiest would be to drill a 1mm hole as close as possible to the top of the filler pipe, although it is not recommended due to fuel/vapour release.

Car not getting fuel


If it is a 1980 Caddy it either has a carburetor or throttle-body fuel injection( V864, if it's fuel injected you might need a new fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator ) and you can remove the aircleaner lid and pour a little gas down the carb (hold the choke plate open with a screw driver placed between choke plate and carb air horn) or throttle-body. It might take a few tries before the fuel pump fills the float bowl up on the carb for it to keep running. If the cars has really old stale gas in the tank you might need to drain it and refill with fresh gas. Change the fuel filter and add a can of fuel injector-carb cleaner to the gas tank.

99 Taurus wont start unless primed. Fuel pump is working


Check/Change Fuel Filter(s), PVC Valve & Emission Hoses
and/or
Gas that sits too long won't fire easily that's why we have to add winterize to our lawn mowers!
Try filling the tank with some high grade fuel cleaner additive. This stuff is like rocket fuel (about $10).
Also add a can of dry gas as you may have a lot of water and water vapor in your system!
Get a couple more cans of starter fluid too. (I always needed at least two to get my diesel running for summer)
Keep spraying and starting (It always took me at least a full can sometimes 2)
When it starts keep the gas pedal down and rev high for a good 5-10 minutes then see if it will idle.
If it still stumbles and falls consider adding another can of fuel system cleaner and/or dry gas.
Don't drain the tank as this usually just makes it worse by letting the bottom sludge stir up.
Never let your gas tank get too low as this will foul up your fuel system and always add fuel cleaner after every oil change (a must for fuel injection and cat. converter care)

Good Luck!
