Car starts hesitating and jerking


I suspect the fuel level sensor is wrong and you are really starting to run out of gas. The other reason would be a broken tank baffle that keeps fuel around the inlet to the electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

Every time I run into a starter problem the first thing I check is where the wire meets the battery terminal for corrosion and of course the grounds.

It could be a fuel pump problem. If it isn't working correctly the engine is having to siphon fuel from the tank to the carburetor in the morning, which takes forever. The longer it sets, the fuel will eventually go back to the tank.

98 Corolla stalls or stumbles when cold


It sounds like you may have picked up some small debris from the bottom of the gas tank when you ran it empty. You may need to run a fuel/injector cleaning solution through the next tank of gas to clear the debris and consider changing your fuel filter too. Sea Foam is a great fuel additive and I recomment trying it full strength. Hope this helps!

My stratus 2004 seams to work find but smoe times when acelerate to start moving the engine stalls then works ok, engine light at the panel does not come out when stalling


If your problem seems to be worse when the fuel tank is at a quarter or lower, then your problem is the fuel pump. I had this problem on my daughters car, asked every car guy I knew and a couple of dealer service techs no one could help. Since everything else worked and there was no problem if the fuel tank was above a quarter tank I decided to check the tank baffles. It turns out there are no baffles in this tank the fuel pump has a little reservoir built into the bottom with a little flapper button that is supposed to let fuel in, but not out. Anyway a new pump fixed my problem. Good Luck!

Truck will idle about 15 seconds and dies or bogs down


You need to take a pressure and volume measurement, most fuel pressures for a carburetor engine are 3 to 7 psi, then you need to make sure the volume is consistent for a period of time, 20 to 30 second of engine cranking while the fuel is transferred to a container of some sort, make sure the ignition system is disabled to prevent you from blowing up the property.
