There is probably not enough flow or pressure of fuel to the engine for anything higher than idle.

Have you replaced the inline fuel filter? This sounds like the probable culprit. A clogged fuel filter will cause a pump to fail in a short amount of time.

If the problem's not the fuel filter i'd get the fuel pressure regulator (on the injector fuel rail) checked out.

Sounds like you may have fuel filter problem. you may want to check the pump and filters located in or near the fuel tank.
Go directly to the source ( Fuel Tank, Pump, Filters, Fuel Pressure Regulator and Injectors )
You may have water or grit in the fuel
Hope this helps

Fuel Pump problems


Is it your fuel pump--how would anyone know that ?

You have to perform component tests first, to find any
problem, with any vehicle

You make the repairs as you find problems & only replace
parts that fail a test,then continue on with the component testing,
road testing & such

A failing fuel pump won't likely be felt by how press the gas pedal,
there is no connection there

Check fuel pressure at the motor

There is never a person that comes to this site & we get thousands
a week, that install plugs,wires & sensors & never test or check a thing & never fix a thing.

Learn the vehicles systems & how to test them,never install parts
Those days were the 1960's --won't work with today's technology

Check any type of idle air control valve or solenoid you may have
Check for vacuum leaks & egr system issues

....suzuki samurai fuel intake failing. revs with constant throttle, but dies at idle.


Check the fuel filter. Check fuel pump. Gas may have water in it. Have you put gas in it lately?

Truck idles fine. put in gear and apply gas it dies


Not sure this helps but I have run into several Ford pick up trucks that will idle all day but the moment it was put into gear and accelerated it would die. Fix was a new fuel pump. Had enough pressure to idle but not to take the gas. Your question did not include a make or model but first thing would be to check the fuel pressure at idle and see if it drops an acceleration. it is possible to have pressure but not volume.

Failure to start. then will start next day. Mazda said it was fuel pump. They replaced $790.00. did not resolve problem. they kept 2 days and said it was battery. Replaced. @ weeks later same problem.


Well, they probably did put on either a bad fuel pump or should've done the relay.There is also a fuel pump REGULATOR that can cause a lot of trouble. Make them keep at it,since their work should be warranteed when they say they've fixed it. don-ohio

You vehicle is equipt with a fail safe device the oil pressure switch, the fuel pump will run as long as the oil pressure is okay if this switch has failed you experience extensive long cranking time the oil pressure switch activate the fuel pump replace that switch leave the fuel pump alone.

It idles just fine but when you accelerate its sputters and dies if you do not work the pedal. the timing is good.. the Carb is getting plenty of gas. it has been turned up. just cannot figure it out


Can you raise the revs by gently pressing the pedal? That will largely eliminate the electrics or will it just not rev at all? Is the idling affected? Have you checked that the accelerator pump is working as it should, Is the mixture correct? (What did you turn up, the idle speed or the mixture? and is the timing advance working as it should? Is the fuel pump working properly? Make sure it's pumping enough fuel. Failing all that it could be contaminated fuel or a blockage.
You say the carb is getting plenty of gas but it sounds like fuel starvation or excessive richness if you can get the revs up eventually.
Disconnect the fuel pipe to the carb, put it in a deep bowl as you dont want it splashing all over the place and get someone to crank it. It should provide a steady good flow of fuel. Finally check all vacuum hoses/pipes for leaks

is your fuel pump on check for a safety cut off switch to see if it needs to be reset. if not a power to pump problem could be your pump sock is plugged or the pump has failed.
