    My 99 runs fine for a while then it starts to stall. If I turn the ignition off and turn it back on it runs fine again for a while. ?

Mine did that to me about 4 months ago. I started by changing the fuel filter it ran great for a month. but by doing that it released all the pressure off of the fuel pump which then went out. If you run your vehicle below 1/4 tank it starves the fuel pump. The pump needs that fuel because; The fuel is the lubrication for the pump. Running your tank down consistently over a period of time will short the pump out faster.

92 Honda Accord runs and starts fine I was great but when you accelerate starving for fuel has a new fuel pump new fuel filter fuel injectors don't know what the problem is help me


attach fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure during acceleration. fuel pressure should be the same as when vehicle is idling. if fuel pressure is good i would check ignition timing of your car. if timing is retarded it will affect acceleration and feel like its sluggish too.

Car dies when it warms up. just replaced carb, think it has to do with this


Vapor lock again! Make sure the fuel lines are away from hot surfaces, or insulated.
Also, when it warms up, the automatic choke turns off, and the idle setting has to be set to run at that temp. There will be idle jets, maybe two, and idle stop setting for the linkage.

99 ford ranger, idles rough till it warms up,then runs good. Hard to start after it gets hot, it acts as if it is starved for fuel. Once it does crank it runs fine.


First thought: Check the idle air control valve, or whatever its Ford equivalent is. Sometimes these start to stick and cause the rough early idle that smooths out later.

Could be low fuel pressure, or a long list of other things.
Is the check engine light on ?
Does it feel like it is running rough, or starving for fuel ?

Chevrolet tracker 2001 - started driving so that


Run a vacuum test. Start motor and try to rev a little. If the vacuum drops it could be a plugged cat or muffler, some type of exhaust restriction. Vacuum should pull steady at 15 to17 inches at idle. This is just one possibility.
