Will not stay running. It will start and idle but give it gas and it shuts off.

fast foot it still stalls, bravo that, 1st post ever with that key fact.
very very observant.
stalls, even with fast right foot.
and never runs right, correct?
no engine options stated to all answer drop to generic.
a tune up, do the 60k now.
if the engine has a timing belt , nows the time.
if compression is good, over 150psi, then
bad spark, tune it up.
if spark is good, and timed right,its a fueling issue
EFI is your system for injections.
we check the fueling for dry or under fueling. or flooding
those are 2 different paths. there.
lite me guess, its Under fueling.
ASE ways) I add propane gas, to the intake
i gain power, opps it really IS underfueled ( a 1min flat tests)
so why>
ok, low fuel pressure is 1st.
i check my rail pressure 1st.
at spec> no its low then the reg is bad, (stuck wide open )
the fuelpump voltage way low, ?
or the filter clogged, sure 60k tuneups do work , and my filter is new
and the pump is weak and bad
. just one example.
if pressure was good, id do the injector leak down test
then the balance test.
all that is in the FSM. every tests.
and will find the cause of gross engine power loss.

all with on lil old $20 fuel pressure gauge>
ask for details can do that at each step.

Car will idle fine, and will drive for a short distance and then stalls out, but restarts ok. When in park and revving the motor it is fine, but when driving will stall out if you step on the gas peddle...

need to do a compression test sir. this sounds like _blown Head Gasket_ hopt not. could be easy things like clogged fuel injectors, long story short check that fuel rail has pressure to it... run some injector cleaner through gas tank.... check that fuel pump is working properly ie. not turning on /off on/off should stay on whole time cars on. thats all. questions or results post em so i can get back to you :) Derek

Fuel injection...engine running rough,tried tune up and fuel additive..could it be fuel pressure regulator? is it an inherent problem and what will happen if i don't get it fixed..and also how much are we...

no, i not think it is fuel reg. sounds like maybe timing off ,bad sensors. does check engine lite come on or have you pull codes. i would check these things. if you can do a compression test on the engine. is it high mileage ? do you have vacuum leak ? there are lots of things can be going on to solve it is to start trouble shooting !!!!

1999 Toyota Camry V6 idles rough and stalls after starting. No check engine lights and runs fine otherwise. Has only happened three times in the last two months. After keeping the idle up and running car...

yes it could be a fuel related problem, when was your last tune up, it could also be a spark issue, old or corroted spark plugs will sometimes not put out the correct amount of heat to ignite the gas correctly till it runs for a while, if the check engine light isnt lit, it will almost have to be something simular to this

I have a 1997 Chevy 2500 pickup with a 5.7 liter V8. The issue that I am having with it is there is no power when accelerating. If I press the gas hard the rpms drop and the tuck will stall. If I press...

pluged air intake

try opening the air box then start and drive if all works fine snake the intake tube with garden hose
if it does same thing look for vac leaks then fuel presure
theres a schrader valve on the fuel rail for testing fuel presure and weather the rail holds presure when not running

take a look on your fuel rail driver side, look to see if there is a test port. If so get yourself a fuel pressure guage and hook er up. fuel pressure should be Min 35 Max 45 PSI if so that rules out fuel pump, Otherwise wait till dark and get a spray bottle full of water, mist your spark plug wires so they are wet and start the truck, if you see little sparks jumping from the wires replace em. last common cause that comes to my mind is check the voltage on your Throttle position sensor black should be ground, purple should be the reading from the sensor and whatever other color should have 5Volts constant aprox. Check your codes too. key on off on off on without starting engine then count the flashes of the check engine light, pauses mean next number... post em and ill let you know what they mean

2008 Ford F150 5.4 Stalled going down road and now will only crank for a second then stops cranking. Battery good. Fuel inertia good. If it is the fuel pump, would it not keep cranking?????

Yes, you are right,it will still crank with a bad fuel pump. It sounds like a bad battery cable. Check all connections, especially the ground. A bad connection or cable at the negative end would shut down the processor and cause the cranking problem at the same time. This is the only thing I can think of that would cause both at once, unless you have two different problems that happened to show up at the same time.

P Reg keeps stalling

First, check for water in the fuel(a common problem with pwcs). Could also be a faulty pcm or stator, does this model have a fault light?
