My first suspicion would be bad fuel from the station. Now way you could have put diesel in by mistake?

    ok bad fuel but how to fix it, please

  • Ken Beckman Jun 16, 2013

    Well, I'd drain the tank, but that's because I know how and I have the facilities. It might be possible to siphon most of the fuel out but this is usually difficult. Usually it requires removal of the fuel tank. Obviously not a job for the faint of heart.

Check or replace all your fuel filters. Check for water in your fuel. Drain your tank and replace with 93 octane fuel. Also check your spark plugs.

Car dies while driving

I would lean more towards the fuel filter...

I had this problem before. The dealer had the car for a week and could not find the problem...
I decided to do a full tune up to see if that would help (which I should have done since the begining...) and found that the fuel filter was full of what I can only describe as mud...

How can this happen? Well, if you ever fill up your tank while or right after the big fuel tanker is filling the underground tanks in your gas station, the fuel will stir up all the gunk that accumulates at the bottom of the fuel tanks. Sure, some of the gas stations have some amount of filtering, but I have found this to be the least of them.

Other than this, change your engine air filter and put some injector cleaner into your gas tank.

If the above fails, head out to a pep boys or advanced auto parts (if available) and ask them to check your alternator. Most locations do it for free or for a very low charge.

good luck!

Car acted like the battery died/cannot fill gas tank.

Evaporator vent silenoid at rear by gas tank is most likely stopped up. Is the check engine light on? If so, take to Auto Zone and get them to scan it for free. Get codes only and post them.

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going

You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.
