Sounds like bad fuel pressure. Check fuel pump and fuel pressure off the rail. Also a severely clogged fuel filter can cause that.

Give the car a "Tune-up". Replace the spark-plugs, the spark-plug wires, and make sure the "Timing" is correct...OK

SOURCE: starts but won't stay running

Turn off all your accesories and turn the key forward, but dont start it. You should hear the pump kick on for 2-3 seconds. Prime the system a few times then start it. This will narrow your diagnosis

96 olds lss had fuel pump replaced wont stay started long sputter spits ect.


You better find a different mechanic . Before calling a bad fuel pump ,did he do fuel pressure test ? Did he test the electrical circuit ? Did he check mass air flow sensor ,injectors , fuel regulator , engine senors ? How many miles on the vehicle , is the engine in good shape ? Timing chain ?

1997 geo prizm won't stay running sputters and dies upon acceleration


If the check engine light is on you should have the computer scanned for trouble codes. The codes will direct you or a mechanic on where to look for the problem.
Sometimes the problem is low fuel pressure or a dirty fuel filter.

1990 f150 302 v8 5.0 sputtered and died and now wont start. What could be the problem?


Turn the ignition switch to run, without starting it. You should hear the electric fuel pump, in the gas tank, run for about 3 to 4 seconds, until it builds to proper pressure. If it is not humming along it needs replaced.

My car starts and runs at first but sometimes at a stop sigh it will keep sputtering and duing and wont stay running,


If you feel it starting to die - toss it into neutral before coming to a full stop.

If it then keeps running, your TCC solenoid is locking up (common problem on all TH125C trannies). As a quick fix, pop the hood and disconnect the square green 4 pin connector going into the tranny. No more lockup over 50km/h, but no more stalling.

My car wont stay started when im trying to crank the engine?


If it turns over and almost seems to start I would inspect the timing belt by removing the top cover. It may need to be replaced due to damage or from becoming stretched and/or loose. Next I would check the fuel pump/fuel pump relay. If it will run for a few seconds then sputter and die, try replacing the fuel filter.

Wont stay running


hi, i need to know something about your car in order to help you.
does your car have a distributor or 2 coil packs under the manifold.
there is 2 different problems.
i think your prob is your fuel pump breaking down under load, its common, get back to me 1st with my question before u do anything.
