I would take a close look at secondary ignition. If the problem happens under load (acceleration) I would bet the wires are leaking/bad or the cap/rotor has some carbon tracking. Try spraying down the wires/coil with soapy water and looking for any arcing. Also take a peak inside the distributor cap. you'll be looking for a build up of debris/moisture or carbon tracking which look like black lightning bolts.

My 93 o l d s. 88. Has been acting up lately it runs fine buy every now and then it acts like it is trying to run outta gas. And when i go to put gas in it, it act like it cant even hold $10 worth. What...


It could be vapor locking if you drive for a while then it acts like it is running out of gas. this is caused by the fuel vaporizing before it gets to te carburator. Check the fuel lines for placement close to a heat source like the exaust, Also, the problem could be the fuel pump, you can have a pressure check done to see if the pressure is up to specks.

Car runs perfect then starts missing real bad then stalls


Not unusual for fuel pumps to begin to fail once they are heated up from running. First thing in the morning pump is cool, then as you drive, it heats up and begins to lose pressure. After sitting a 1/2hr-1hr, it may start again and run fine for a short time and start to act up again. Had similar problem and found good fuel pressure when tank and pump cool, but lost pressure once vehicle driven a distance and pump heated up. The hotter the weather, the shorter the distance I could drive. If you can somehow set it up to have fuel pressure checked when it starts to act up, that would certainly help confirm if fuel pressure is the culprit.

Check for spark at the sparkplug, to see if everything in the dist. is working right. And check the injector harness for something being pulled loose when the wires were jerked out.

Truck acts like it is running out of gas? Replaced fuel filter. Ran fine for awhile but now still acts like it is starving for fuel.


my '93 f-250 (4.9L) stopped running while driving, now it acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Tried switching tanks, but still does the same. What would be the problem.

92 voyager check gage light


That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

Transmission not shifting gears in drive at freewill


There is a vaccum modulator on the front of the transmission. It has a single vaccum line going to it and is held in place with one bolt. This part controls your up and down shift. Its a 20.00 part. Try replacing it first. If that dosent do it then you will need a rebuild or replacment.

2004 Grand Am acts like it's out of gas when it's not.


It almost sounds like you are losing spark at times, and not fuel. i guess the cheapest place to start is to change plugs and wires. Pay close attention to the gap on the plugs. Another thing could be the idle air control valve, or water in your fuel.
