You need to make sure you put in AT LEAST 2 gallons of gas, more if the car is not level. It might take a few cycles of the key to get the fuel line primed again. A full cycle is Off-On-Start. When you turn the key to on, listen for the fuel pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off, turn the key to start for a few seconds and then back to off... This will have to be repeated several times. You should be able to hear the fuel pump from the drivers seat. I will be a faint hum or hiss coming from the back seats.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

I have a Kia Sedona van 2002 . I stoped to fill it up with gas but i left it running after i filled it up full the van started acting funny and died. I started it back up ran alright then the rpms go up...


Could be a sensor , but without testing , this would be a guess ! Have seen TPS - throttle position sensors on chysler products do this , Mass air flow sensors on GM vehicles , plus bad IAC - idle air control motor . Don't think you would like to replace all these parts , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Have it tested !

1989 mustang gt starts revs really high then dies


Sounds like the idle control valve. The same thing happened to my Mustang and that was my problem.

It could be your idle air bypass valve. They get sticky with age and don't let enough air around the throttle body to keep the car running when it's at idle.

When engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating


I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.
