Hey
in most cases the reason it's of two things. either your catalytic converter is plugged or you are losing fuel either from a plugged filter or a bad fuel pump. wouldn't be a bad idea to check the air filter also.

I have a 92 Toyota paseo and it starts but sputters and dies when I putnit into first gear? What could be the problem?


I once had a problem like this one, the car started but when i put in on drive the engine died.
This was because the engine moved when put in drive, and a ground to the injectors was lose, so just got it tight and problem fixed.

Start your engine and move the harness a bit if it dies there's a lose wire.

Hope this helps. Good luck..

After jumping a dead battery the car will lose power and die while driving. It will however sit and idle without a problem. I did try testing the alternator by removing the positive lead from the battery...


You never jump a dead battery
That is an unsafe act and could
result in an explosion

You must charge any battery fully,
to start any diagnostic proceedure

You never remove either battery cables,
while a vehicle is running,another practice
that will bite you sooner than later

It sounds as though the battery is not
capable of taking a charge and offers
too much resistance to run the car hooked up

92 Ford F150 4.9L. starts good, idles rough, dies at slow speeds


4.9 litre ?? you having a laugh its a 10ton truck engine not a pick up -global warming machine,remove the pump/sender unit and check the gauze filter also look inside tank for a something floating around ,i think the idles is not a related problem to the vehicle losing power but their is a possibility you could have a problem with the little vac operated thing on the fuel injector line that allows the fuel through only when the engine is running

92 colt 1.5l, Air pressure from oil cap


Hello, It sounds as if it may indeed be a broken ring. It is getting compression inside the motor called blow-by. My suggestion would be as long as it doesn't use oil or give any other problems, I would drive it.
