Maybe you have got vapour-lock.

    Maybe you have got a faulty head-gasket. That can explain why the coolant-system runs to hot, and you've got vapour-lock.

    Try a compression-test, just to check.

    kind regards.

1994 Chevy 3500hd 6.5 turbo diesel starts then stalls. I have to pump the gas pedal a lot before it starts again. Once started, it runs rough. Specially when I step on the pedal.


As there is no connection between the accelerator pedal and the fuel system then pumping the pedal will have no effect.. I would be checking and bleeding the fuel system from the filter to the pump and checking for a leak in the fuel supply system. Hard starting and running rough is an indication of air in the pump and in the lines to the injectors.

91 Lumina won't stay running; see lots of same question for same car but no problem solvers....Please help.


On electronic fuel injection pumping an pumping an pumping the gas pedal does nothing without the engine running ! Pushing the gas pedal to the floor will cause the PCM - engine computer to go into clear flood mode .

You have some very interesting ideas here , but not really how it works or is !

The vehicle will go into closed loop fuel control when the engine coolant temp reaches a definded temp an the O2 sensor get hot.

She would run for a couple minutes and die which is open loop when running, closed loop is when the sensors kick and it would die. Pulled spark plugs, they were black meaning no spark. Can only be 2

Black spark plugs indecate a rich condition , over fueled , wet spark plugs indecate no spark .

  • does the engine miss? bumps is a rythmic pattern?
  • an engine miss will appear to diminish at higher rpm due to centrifical force.
  • other possible problem broken or flat motor mount.
  • is the idle rough in reverse?
  • if not
  • open hood
  • start engine
  • Left foot on brake (hard)
  • start engine
  • watch engine as you select drive
  • still holding brake with left foot / throttle gas with right foot
  • does engine dramatically move?
  • if so replace motor mount on offending side
  • if not possible engine miss or transmission problems

Fuel problem with my XJ6


The gas cap is mostly used to maintain the pressure inside of the gas tank, and to keep the fuel pump from working itself to death. Sounds to me like your killed your fuel pump. Get the new gas cap, and have someone test your fuel pressure. I am pretty sure there won't be much, so replace your fuel pump if this is the case.

The car is running poorly and missing when hitting the gas pedal


Give it a good tune up. Change the cap and rotor, plugs. Make sure that the plug wires are in good shape and not broken from heat.
