Try changing the fuel filter. sounds like fuel problem. builds up fuel pressure when it runs loses when its cut off if fuel filter doesnt help probably the fuel pump needs replacing.

How do I know its my fuel pump that needs changing? I have a 2004 Pontiac grand am and it turns over fine, but some days especially when its really hot outside and I'm going on long trips the car acts as...


the only way to tell is to have the fuel pressure tested with a gauge when its running okay then have it tested when its acting up. this will show any type of pressure and volume problem that could indicate a pump problem. when and how long has it been since you changed the fuel filter. pumps will usually act up when they get hot or when you have just filled up on gas. they will also act up when you have driven a bit and shut the engine off to go lets say into a store and come out and try to start it. this is why a fuel pressure test is important.

I have a 1988 Dodge Dynasty that acts like it's vapor locking.


yes fuel pump is dying (it's old ) it will finnaly give up the ghost some day soon then engine won't run at all

common problem pump heats up and shuts off cools off and runs again cyclic

this all assumes you have kept up on changing the fuel filter at reg intervals too

2005 MPV shuts off after I let go of the gas after


I'd pull the "idle air control valve " (located on side of throttle body near front) off, and use some throttle body spray cleaner on it & the port it came out of. Spray pintle (pointed part) good to remove any gunk etc. Re-install, it & try it. if it cures your problem for a while & starts to act up again, replace it.
