Fuel pump relay could be cutting out or you can have a bed ground. It could also be that you have a weak spark, which would cause chambers to flood.

88 f150 351w forever to start and when it does it runs real rough until I hold gas down for a minute then idle rough but will start right back up unless it sits awhile doesnt want to start back up


There are several possibilities for this problem. A "cold start" sequence is suppose to activate based on water temperature and the signal from the water temperature sensor. This makes the fuel rich and adjusts timing to make the engine run better when cold. It works like a choke only it is electronic.

There may be 2 sensors with one making the dash gauges work and the other doing the engine controls. If not 2, then 1 sensor would do the whole job.

Another possibility is an air leak in the fuel system which makes the system bleed dry overnight. It is far less common on gas engines but happens a lot on diesels.

Some earlier Ford engines from 1984 to I don't know when they stopped on trucks, would use a step-up solenoid on the accelerator bracket that worked off water temperature. Sometimes a bad water thermostat would make the temperature controls malfunction the other way (High idle, clicking, low idle) that would stall and engine as the temperature vary.

My caprice starts and runs for a while then after about 45 mins of driving it hesitates to pull off and idles up and down. then if i cut it off, i wont start unless it sits for about a hour or so... PLEASE...


Sounds like you need to check your converter. May be trying to stop up. Eventualy you may smell fumes. Take to a muffler shop and have it checked. It's hard to say this is what it is but it's where i would start. You may have got'en some bad gas somewhere. Good Luck to you.

1992 olds 88 stalls. after it sits for a half


Is the Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel? If so, then have someone pull the codes and post them back here. Autozone will do this for you at no cost.Caution: don't purchase any parts after reading the codes on their recommendation! If no codes, then suspect either a bad crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor. There are other possibilities too, but these are primary. I have seen MANY bad crank sensors do exactly what your describe without setting a code.

'88 VW Fox intermittently dying after starting


These CIS vehicle are tempermental. Best thing to do is change the air filter, clean air flow sensor plate(Spray gunout on a rag and lightly clean it ) Gun out throttle body and a slight idle adjustment. Finallyonce a month put some fuel injection cleaner in the tank. See how this works before we start testing items.

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


check the fuel regulator,while running unplug the red vacumn hose and if gas squirts out the hole,then it is bad,if not then possibly plugged catalytic converters,drive it on the highway if you can, and stop and look underneath at it and if it looks red,then replace them.Check to see if its overheating,usually a really hot hood tells the story.
