Today's gas goes very bad very fast. it does ugly things to your fuel tank and system. I would drain the tank and even pour most of it back to do some flushing. After it is empty, fill and add the best injector cleaner. WHOA...........Replace your fuel filter too !!

Spitting and sputtering like not getting fuel


It may have fouled your plugs, but you can tke them out and clean them. Use a small blade and scrape the carbon off.
You could also take the egr valve off and try to clean it. Use a wire brush. also clean as best you can the passages under the valve, they can get plugged with carbon. Use a new gasket when you bolt the egr valve back down. Keep trying to get the fuel filter off, but the egr cleaning should help.

Check your fuel filter again. Dirt from the tank could have clogged it again.

This could be a blockage in the carburator,try to clean it, especially the valves. There is a specific spray for the job on the market. You might need to dismantle it.

When u push on the gas it spits and sputters, it ran out of gas like 2 weeks ago and yes sometimes i do let it run low on gas. It spits and sputters when i turn a corner or go up a hill


Could be a clogged fuel filter, and or dirty fuel injectors. Try running some strong injector cleaner through it. It may take 2 or 3 times before it cleans the injectors out fully.

1986 ford xlt lariatf150 302 in it will run good for a little while but its staring to sputter an spit like its not getting gas. But ihavent changed the fuel filter yet. But you can let it sit for a sec....


There is only one fuel filter and the possibility of bad gas is good.If the truck set as long as you said then you need to drain the fuel tank and put in fresh gas,unleaded gas does not do well over three months old and if it is an ethanol blend it will actually start to grow a fungus.Change the fuel and the fuel filter and if this does not work let me know,we will start over from there.

1995 Jeep Wrangler 2.5 4cyl spits and sputters while driving


if you have an electric fuel pump that would explain the hum. unhook your incoming fuel line and blow the line clear, sounds like you've got some junk in your tank.it'll build up on the screen in the tank then fall off (at least partially) when your making turns or hitting bumps or holes. next time it's only got a gallon or so of fuel i'd drop the tank and check the pickup tube inside. sux but that's the only way to get to it. while you've got the tank off and out from under the jeep, might as well clean it out real good and replace anything inside (usually the screen) that doesn't look right, dirty etc. wouldn't hurt to run a bottle of fuel system cleaner in the next full tank of fuel either. preferably as soon as you put your tank back. good luck

I got a 2001 ford f 150 off road and when i take off it spits and spudders and the gas milage has got worse wat could it be??? plugs, o2 sensors, cats


i would start with a good tune up
plugs, wires, cap,rotor. fuel filter . and clean your throttle body
a bad O2 sensor will not make it spit and sputter that is a misfire.
good luck
