Sounds like a fuel or maf problem . check clarksgarage.com for fuel trouble shooting if all checks out ok check your o2 sensor and the rest of the mass air flow system

I have 2006 chevy equinov 3.4l awd.When i push on the gas it will run fine for about half a mile then it starts sputtering and sounds like backfireing and jerking and stalls out.


What is year--make--model?
How long since a tune-up?
If you think it is fuel issue, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. There are some other tests you could try, but, too much liability, I can't be responsible for your safety.

96 altima won't start


Check to see if distributor is loose. If it is, look for indications of where it was clamped before it moved to get it back close so you can start it and set timing.

Is the fuel pump energizing? If not, look for the white wire and see where it goes. If it just goes to the frame, re-do the ground wire to a new clean location.

if it is energizing replace the fuel filter.

if still not running, check for spark. If you have spark, check emissions hoses and see if EGR is closed. If it is stuck open, it will lean the engine out.

If it starts and runs without power, drop the exhaust, the catalytic converter and or muffler may be obstructions since it backfired. It should start even with those damaged, but it may not be able to move enough air through to run well.

Usually starts & idles ok until it warms up then when you hit the gas it stalls.Then it's hard to start and you can't give it gas or it will never start but if you keep cranking it will...


yes it will. Also the EGR system may have a problem now too. When a o2 sensor goes bad it can destroy the egr valve and the map sensor too

1999 dodge durango is hard to start. Starts with rough idle with some backfire, then idles smooth. after sitting idle for a minute it will act as if wanting to stall on takeoff! Have changed the fuel pump...


FIrst have you tried giving the engine a tune up (ie replaced the spark plugs)

Also you need to check the condition of all the vacumn lines on the engine loss of vacumn can cause poor idling.
