Sounds like you need to change the fuel filter. If the problem persists, have the computer scanned for trouble codes in order to pinpoint the problem area.

My 03 malibu 3.1 when it's in park I reb the gas down halfway It bogged down looses pressure and if I push the gas down harder it pops and when I drive It takes off slow then picks up


The popping and slow to pick up speed is caused by a vacuum leak. Check all the vacuum lines are connected and not broken anywhere.

2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions


The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

Car starts fine and runs fine for a while then the motor bogs down and dies. It then will not restart until it cools down. What could be the issue


Hi Michelle, I'm glad to help!

Michelle, there are a lot of things that can cause this problem, here are the 2 most common problems. (1) Exhaust restriction, sometimes when vehicles get a lot of miles on them the exhaust fails and inside the exhaust falls apart. SO, when you drive the car the debris piles up in the pipe and restricts the air flow and back pressure causes the engine to bog down and have no power and in most cases causes the engine to die. The muffler shop can check this out for you. (2) Inadequate "FUEL PRESSURE" when a vehicle has a lot of miles sometimes the fuel pump can gradually go bad. When you drive the car the "FUEL PUMP" is working so hard to keep up that it just eventually stops working and dies. Michelle, there are a lot of other things that can cause this but these are the 2 issues that are found the most and is a very good place to start. Someone of course will need to check this to see if either one is the problem. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Michelle.

Fuel delivery problems?


Okay this vehicle is 27 years old. It may well have out lived its usefulness. Have you thought about getting a newer vehicle that does not cause such problems?

Car dies going down the road


First thing i would check would be the fuel filter. Sometimes, when they first start to give problems, there is enough gas to keep them idling or driving around town, but when you get on the highway they starve for fuel.

Try changing the fuel filter. You may want to consider a Weber carburetor conversion. That Asian carb is old

96 pontiac sunfire bogs down and dies when I apply the gas.


as far as the bogging and dieing,it sounds like the tps.a simple trottle body service would fix that.for your new problem you need to some test before pointing to a salution.start the car and cover your tail pipe.as pressure builds it push you hand off.a clogged cat will put to much back pressure on the engine.i would un plug the mass air flow sensor and try running the car.this will turn on the check engine light.check your air filtter and plugs.also check your wires.a nother test is a coil strees test.(you have to go to a shop for this)if the car runs ok with no load but spitts and sputters in drive you may have a openning coil.checking with a meter only works if it does not run.last but not least while you at the shop,have them check your timing.a faulty cam sencer will bog the car down with bad timing advancement but not throw a code.
hope this helps,remember to keep it simple,expensive elec. parts are not always the problem
