Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Hesitates when pushed down on throttle, hard to start, wants to die

First the fuel regulater went bad and we fixed it, then we put a fuel pump, fuel filter, and fuel pick up screen, still no good. So we put plugs and plug wires, and still hard to start hesitates when pushing on throttle,and has no power. No check engine light is on, and there are no codes, the fuel pump reads 39 pounds with key on, and 35 pounds when running.

    I have a 96 cutless supreme 3.1 and my problem sounds some what the same. When I try to start the car it won't start and it seems like it's not getting any fuel so I tap the gas pedal a few times and then when it finally does there the heavy smell of fuel like now it flooded. When it finally smooths out it runs just fine. I had a new fuel pump put in about 2 years ago....

    Thanks,

    Rocky

What is the fuel pump pressure? When you put the throttle down, there is not enough fuel to match the air inlet and it dies.

I've got a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee with the 5.2 v8 fuel injected Holley throttle body. My problem is while driving at soft or low acceleration it accelerates fine, but if you hit the throttle hard it


I would check the voltage on the throttle portion sensor with the engine off from idle to wide open throttle.If there are any dead spots, replace the sensor. If the tps checks out, you should check fuel pressure. If you have good fuel pressure, you may want to make sure there isn't a lot of slack in your timing chain. I don't believe you mentioned the mileage of your vehicle. Best of luck.

It starts and idles, but if the gas pedal suddenly push to full throdle the engine dies, and when it is put into gear the engine dies


sounds like a fuel feed problem check your fuel pump and your fuel lines.best way is to connect a line from a gas can directly to the fuel pump and put the line from your tank into the can to prevent spillage.then try to start and throttle engine. if it dies that means there could be an in line filter or the pump is bad.if it works then run the hose from the tank to the pump if it doesnt work then its the pump and filter in the tank. if it works then clean the lines between the tank and the pump or engine.

1997 chev runs but seems like not getting enough fuel.


For about $20 or less, I would think a shop or parts supplier could do a fuel pressure test to confirm, but I'm thinking fuel pump needs replace.
