Sounds like it is not getting much fuel. when you step on gas pedal to call for more fuel, its not there so it will quit. check fuel filter to be sure it is ok! have a good day!!

I ran out of gas in my car, so I put $5 gas in the car and it didn't start, so I added another $5 gas in in again and it still won't start, we tried boosting it and it won't start so i don't know what is...


Dont touch the gas pedal or it might flood and not start. Have someone spray a little starting fluid in the Air filter tube while you try to start it.

Wen i turn on the Pontiac it runs good for like 7 seconds and thin it turns off i don't know why it dose that i need help?


Get a full systems check, it's probably a bad fuel pump. which means your engine isn't sucking in enough fuel to keep it continuously running, you probably have alot of build up as well, try system cleanser, put it in a full tank of gas and see if it can stay running long enough to remove some build up. Otherwise you have to go to a mechanic.

hope it helps

My 1995 Pontiac Bonneville will turn over and start but always dies. Already replaced fuel filter and the fuel pump seems to be working but the car will not stay started. Checked the gas release on fuel...


crank position sensor...if the engine will start and run for a second or two then it dies. If, however, you can press and hold the gas pedal slightly and keep the engine going, then I would suspect the IAC-idle air control valve. This can be cleaned with spray carb cleaner.

My 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix will not idle


the computer probably need to relearn the idle-try driving the car for 20-30 minutes,i u can. if that doesnt work,try keeping the car in drive at idle speed if possible without touching the gas pedal-even though it might stall,see if eventually the idle will raise up on its own.hope this helps you.

ENGINE STALLS WHEN I STEP ON GAS PEDAL


Sounds like your fuel pump is going bad! The more you press on the pedal the more demand is on the pump and it cant keep up cuz its junk. Try to limp it to a shop to replace it, unless u wanna do that yourself.....
