Sounds like the idle jet in the carb is plugged up.

It only stays running from the primer load, then dies when that is used up, as the gas can not get from the float bowl through the idle jet.

Did you store it for a while with the gas still in it?

If so, what happens is the gas starts to go bad, and over time it can get almost like a varnish.

When this happens, it starts plugging up the small ports in the carb, starting with the smallest, which is the idle jet.

Before storing for any length of time, your best bet is to drain the gas and run the float bowl dry.
If not that, at least add some fuel stabilizer to the gas left in it, and run it for about 5 minutes with the stabilizer in the fuel.

Hi! As a first course of action please have an oil change. The oil can be burnt which can cause the engine to shake during cold start ups. Experienced this myself and an oil change was a helpful idea. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

My car dies when it get warm?


sounds like a your tie rod ends or ball joints are bad. as far as it turning off in gear means that the fuel injection is screwed up which means its a gas problem which is a intake problem with wrong fuel mixture or even a vacuum leak.

Truck turns over alot then starts and runs fine


Faulty idle control system/ sensor. Vacuum leaks, loose or damaged wires in the ignition system. Check all wires and connections.
