Head gaskets blown or cracked head. It only takes 1 time of running hot to cause damage as the heads are aluminum and the blocks is iron.

Vapor locks


It could be a vapor lock but not likely. Since the introduction of fuel injection vapor lock has been eliminated.
You need to figure out if you are loosing fuel pressure or spark when it will not start back up. Could be a fuel pump relay or ignition module among other things. Even a problem with the vent for the gas tank.

It ran out of gas and now wont start. I put gas directly into throttle body, and it starts/runs, but wont remain started when gas runs out.


Sounds like fuel pump. Your fuel pump relies on fuel to act as coolant. Running it low often makes pump run hot and shortens it's life. Sounds like running out of fuel did just that. Way to test, pull fuel line off in engine compartment and have someone turn key to "ON" (NOT START!!!) position, you should fuel spraying out of line) If not, fuel pump is bad.

I hav a 94 chevy k1500 but it wont stay running. One morning i started it up, got it warm then while i was goin down the road it acted like it was running out of gas,would die then start back up then just...


Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.

2001 kia sportage wont start


Jumped time. If it runs ruff I would do that too much, you could bend a value.

Fairly common problem, you just need a new timing belt.

Do i have a vapor lock


Remove the gas cap when it does this. If you hear a woosh sound the tank vent isn't working properly. Essentially your tank has turned into a vacuum.
