I have a small suggestion, there is a possibility that it may not be a fuel problem at all, what about plugs and wires? when is the last time they were checked or changed

When was the last time your changed your gas line filter? This is the cheapest to fix first. Also, if it runs ok while cold but when the engine warms up it acts up, it sounds like your ignition coil. They are easy to change out and not very expensive. They tend to go all of a sudden. Hope this helps ya.

Car runs fine at times then will not start. Sprayed carb cleaner in air filter and then it starts but dies when i start. The next day car starts and runs fine.


It sounds like your car isn't getting the proper amount of gas. You say your mechanic changed the fuel pump and the regulator. Id have him run a diagnostic tool on it to see if it throws any other codes. Its getting fire. Try changing the FUEL FILTER. it maybe clogged. maybe the pressure regulator is not giving it enough pressure to push the gas into the engine or maybe the fuel pump is only working at times. Does it run good and then start to spit and spudder then die? if so its not getting gas some how. Idk if you can adjust the pressure regulator or not. i mostly work on old school cars.

Spit and spudder


Clean the idle speed control valve in the upper intake near the throttle valve with CRC brand throttle cleaner.

It sounds like the air bypass valve is not closing after warmup and this sounds like a temperature related problem. Air bypass is used much like the old choke on carburated cars for cold starts.

My 2002 dodge stratus is acting like it is missing out or spuddering. I have changed the spark plugs and after doing so it ran really well for awhile then started doing the same thing again?


You may have a bad coil pack. They are located on top of the spark plugs. If a coil pack is bad then if will miss as well as you could loose gas milage and performance.

Looses power why driving has trouble starting you can be going down the highway then it starts to spit and spudder all the sudden pull off and shut it off for about 15 minutes or so try to fire it up it...


A good pump and a bad one look identical; problem with the bad one is that after running for a while, it gets hat, begins to bind and then stops. Once cooled down, it will repeat the process. Even when pressure testing, it may "seem" fine but not be., 'till it gets bad enough to show up during testing. Your crank position sensor can act the same way, so can an ignition coil. (internal expansion during heating shows internal shorting.) When in "no start" check for spark. This should separate fuel problem from ignition related stuff. Then, go from there. Do real testing...guessing and replacing parts can cost you a fortune.

98 buick car runs great untill i put gas


Sounds like water in fuel tank. Try putting some gasline antifreeze in, (maybe a couple of bottles) will clear up water and problem if that's it.

Acts like starving for gas


This is caused by some sort of fuel restriction within the fuel filter or, it could be a weak or failing pump as well.

I recommend changing the fuel filter and replacing the fuel pump. You can also benefit from replacing the spark plugs and wires. this will improve the performance of this vehicle.

If the engine light is illuminated, it is best to get the codes by running a diagnostic scan soon on the ecm.

My 1987 oldsmobile calais has started making a funny noise and no wanting to run right. Missing out and spitting and spudering. I have changed spark plugs and put on new air filter, it is still doing it...


Have you tried the ignition module, coil pack, or engine roration sensor. All three are in the rear of the engine and low. Pretty difficult to get to so plan on some time to get them out. just follow the ignition wires to the coil and do the rest by feel. Have Fun
