Check/change the fuel filter, and check the fuel pump. Be careful, the fuel will run out, sometimes under pressure. I suggest eye protection, Test it by disconnecting the fuel line on the tank side, then have someone turn key to on position (not all the way to start) there should be a short burst of fuel,. That is the prime, then turn key to start and the fuel should be pumped out steadily. If you get these results, pump is good, replace filter.

My 90 dakota dies at lowe speed when wether is cool,whay ??


Is your check engine light 1) Working 2) On? One suspect would be the coolant temp sensor; which tells the computer the ambient temperature so that it can make appropriate fuel adjustments .... though I'm a little unconvinced that it it would have enough effect to cause stauling.

My 1990 chevy lumina will start up for few seconds then die. it wont stay running for more than 5 seconds but will starts up every time. when i give it gas it dies immediately


Sounds like low fuel pressure. Check your fuel pressure. If you have the 3.1 liter engine and just turn the key to the "on" position you should have around 41 - 47 PSI. When running it should have about 31 - 44 PSI. If you have the 2.5 liter engine you should have 26 - 32 PSI of pressure when running. I hope this helps and good luck.

Why would a 1990 Chev. Start hard and die shortly after starting in cooler weather? It should go into high idle immediately and run fine... It will crank over for 4 or 5 seconds, then fire and die shortly...


Sounds like the fuel supply through is inadequate. That is a Want-to-be fuel injection system that uses a relay to enrichen the gas mixture.

Solution could be a container of fuel system cleaner, and a spray or two of carb cleaner in the injector.

Other causes could be:
Failure of the "choke" to richen the gas mixture
Vacuum line leakage.
Fuel filter becoming clogged

My car stauls when come to a stop


Try to clean the fuel system and inspect the fuel senser and injectors, it sounds like there is fuel stavation which can't allow the car to move at high speed.
