Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....

Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

Had about 4 gal of diesel in tank and someone put 5 galons of gas in tank. Drove a mile and stopped for not sure how long. Went back out to start and would not start.

it all depends on how much diesel remained in the tank before the gasoline was added, and how new and sophisticated the diesel engine is. In a 2007 or newer clean diesel engine, any amount of gasoline will probably damage the sensitive emissions control components (DPF, OxyCat and SCR) and system. In older engines with much less sophisticated and "touchy" emissions systems, a lightly diluted (say 90 percent diesel/10 percent gasoline) mix would probably pass through with little or no detriment. It might simply cause reduced engine power, perhaps a bit more noise, and possibly a sharp warning from the emissions sensors that detect something other than pure diesel exhaust. It's high concentrations of gasoline that spell real trouble. Whether a modern clean CRD diesel or an old indirect injection unit, burning straight gasoline or highly diluted diesel fuel will almost certainly result in catastrophic damage to the mighty diesel engine.

My 2002 buick regal is becoming hrrible in gas mileage since around one year. maybe it is making around 8 miles per galon maximum. what could be the reason

First have you replaced the fuel filter, air filter, tune it up, does it blow black smoke is the tail pipe black if so you might have a bad map sensor. Check for leaks, have you replaced your timing belt. Bad timing will cause a fuel consumption.

My Escort is sputtering at interstate speeds but stops at lower speeds. Also sputters more going up hill. Is this the a tune up spark plugs or dirty fuel filter or should I just replace both....

Well,at 180K it's going to need some work.i would start with a tune-up (spark plugs,wires,fuel and air filters. Maybe a bottle of Techron injector cleaner in the fuel tank. See how it runs,,,,go from there. I always say,"do the easy stuff first"

Turns over upon starting, but will not ignite.

what you need to check is to see if the security light goes off when the key is inserted to make sure the key is still programmed to car when in ignition. Then the basics for a car starting: air, fuel, compression. couldbe alot of things but check the timing on the car, incase it jumped a tooth or timing belt broke. May need tune up: spark plugs. please post more information about problem with car. also check battery cables for corrision.
