It could mean a number of different things... faulty maf or map sensor, throttle position sensor, fuel injector leak, etc.
Is there a check engine light on? I would be happy to further assist you if you were interested in diagnosing it yourself.

Why does my 98 subaru legacy sputter and die?


Clean your MAF sensor and throttle body. If it's dirty it will send wrong voltage to ECU, running either too lean or too rich, most likely too rich and flooded the fuel injectors.

The only matter there should be in the throttle body is air. The throttle body in no way has anything other than "nothing" in it. The liquid you see could be the gasoline you threw into the throttle body.

Getting back to your problem. Do NOT have someone looking down the throttle body while you are trying to start the engine. That person may receive a haircut he will never forget! Get the battery charged. Try to start the engine because even though you think you put too much gas in the throttle body, it may start.

The tricky part. If the engine starts and runs for a few seconds, then you are having a problem with fuel delivery and that is the fuel pump most of the time but not always.. If it does not start at all, try one more time to pour gasoline into the throttle body, hold your foot about 1/2 way down on the pedal and then try again to start it. If it still doesn't start, it's time to check for spark.

My truck wont start unless i prime the carborator first, then it wont stay running unless i rev it high just before i put it in gear, or im accellerating...


To start with, you have a throttle body instead of a carburetor.
On that throttle body is a component called an air control valve.
That valve is how the computer controls the idle speed. It should open and close the air flow into the intake manifold as needed.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ? Have you checked the fuel pressure ?

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.

99 expedition sputtered and died. wont start but turns over. Has gas.


spray some starting fluid in the throttle body & see if it starts right up & stalls. If yes, then you have low fuel pressure.

If not, maybe no spark. Could be cam or crank sensor. Is check engine light on?
