    My Honda starts great when I leave home, but if I stop anywhere or wait at too many lights, I'm in trouble. It starts again, but acts like it's not getting enough gas. It sputters and quits again and again. I floor the gas pedal but it doesn't help. Leaving it in neutral or first with the clutch on doesn't help. Sometimes the engine light goes on, sometimes not. Sometimes it backfires, other times, not. It's frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a busy intersection. It
    eventually sputters to the other side, but not until I've been honked
    at and flipped off several times. If I go really slow afterwards (no
    choice), the does it for a few blocks, then will kick in--until the
    next stop light. Once it gets up to speed and stays there (freeway)
    there is no problem until the next stop.
    I've replaced the fuel and air filters and distributer. My mechanic is stumped.

    Hi



    I take it the problem is only apparent once the engine has warmed up? If so, then if you were to put your foot to the boards, would the car accelerate as though nothing was wrong, or would it play up?



    Regards

I would first check your air cleaner and all the vacuum lines. Make sure you don't hear any hissing sounds in the engine compartment. Another thing that does make sense is your catalytic converter could be breaking up inside. The pressure pushed the pieces into the muffler and is chocking out the release flow. To check this go under the car and tap the muffler and the catalytic (not at the same time). Tap it with some force(enough to rattle them). If you hear things rattling when you do this then that may very well be the problem. It does happen. And from what you are decribing this last suggestion sounds most likely what it is.

One common problem area is the ignition distributor. Another area to check is the electric fuel pump and filter. Is your warning light on for engine/PGM? If so, check for fault codes.

When hot will randomly not start unless gas pedal is pressed all the way down. on a 2001 honda crv. replaced fule pump,fuel relay,fuel filter, dist. cap, rotor, coil,plugs, wires, and ignition control


If you hold the pedal to the floor it puts the fuel system into Clear Flood Mode. This prevents the injectors from firing and lets the already present fuel burn out. Now if this has to be done on every short trip you probably have a leaking injector.

Does the vehicle seem to crank slowly or stop and then crank when this happens?

Have you scanned for any fault codes? Most parts stores have them available to loan out short-term (5 to 10 minutes in their parking lot).

Without any OBD scan, it's very difficult to even point you in a direction.

It could be electrical or fuel-related. When was the last time you had the fuel filter replaced? Check the plugs/coils for fouling and proper connection. Check the battery connections to make sure nothing is loose.

95 ford taurus stalls in very hot temps. every summer. Fuel pump?


When this happens have you noticed what temp guage said? if it was hot then you might try a lower temperature thermostat and flush coolant system.If it doesn't actualy get hot coolant wise then a vapor lock in fuel system would be unlikely to my knowledge, car has fuel pump in gas tank and is fuel injected.If you only take short trips in car cooling system,<thermostat,water pump,coolant level and radiator> could be at fault and only when running for longer periods of time might cause overheating and not noticed on regular days on short trips.

2000 VW Beetle dies occasionally and won't start for a while


run a scan tool on it and make sure there are no codes, if there is codes address those problems first, if no codes.. next time it won't start check for fuel preasure. it is probably a fuel pump getting ready to go out or they may be a large amount of something other than gas clogging the pick-up sock at bottom of fuel pump.

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm
