Hi, this a common fault. the bottom of the fuel tank is full of deposits (water, sand, fibres) and will enter the fuel filter (in the fuel tank). there is another fuel filter and fuel pump near the back and underneath the car fuel lines and injectors may be partially blocked called (fuel starvation). can be taken to a garage to blow back the deposits. the best advice drain and to take the tank off and clean it out. adding REDEX can clean the system, but may take time. i hope this is usefull. gerry

97 buick regal gs runs fine until warm then stalls and will start for more than a second. sometimes when i give it gas it will rev for another second then stall


When the engine warms up the engine computer goes into closed loop mode and relies primarily on the O2 sensors and the MAF sensor to calculate the correct fuel to air mixture - if one of the O2 sensors is fouled or the MAF sensor is not working properly, this can cause the problem.
Given the age of the car, I would also check the idle air control (IAC) and channels, the EGR valve and the throttle body for carbon buildup.

Tried to stall on me pulling out of driveway now wont start


the first thing i would look at is the timing belt, make sure it didnt jump or pop, but if car ran fine and you parked it and then it wouldnt restart then check the battery for full charge then if you try to start and the motor spins but wont start then check for fuel and spark.

Ford f-150 will crank but not start sounds like it wants to turn over. can hear full pump hum. new starter, new battery,. if i hit the gas pedel a lil while starting truck it will keep running but runs...


I had the same problem but I did two fixes for it (1) when I bought the truck several years ago the duel tank switch was pushed in but i never fixed it and just would switch tanks with the switch pushed into the dash. after awhile it acted like it didn't know what tank to draw from point is i finally replaced the switch and it ran, but still ran rough, (2) on the left side of the motor their is an EGR valve (it was green colored vacum hose) I replaced that vacum hose and now it runs great.

Car starts rough, stops running after warmed up (lower RPMs)


Check your gas filter, or your egr, and vacuum hoses.
