I had the same problem with my old 1996 Mitsubishi Galant, but instead it won't even reverse. Anyways turn out it was the transmission. When the transmission goes out, usually the car can only go reverse but won't run forward. You might need to buy a new or even a used one with new parts.

Hi any solution for my 2005 407 16 hdi pls ?car wont start unless gas pedal pressed,and when it starts the car is not responding for gas pedal ,i press the pedal all the way down and still going slow


Sounds like your gas cable is loose or has slipped off the injector pump. It simply clips onto the pump. Locate your injector/fuel pump and check the wire cable going to it is connected. You should also be able to manually rev up your engine from there by pushing the fuel level back and forth. see how you go. All the best

Gas pedal not working


I will list several things it could be first bad throttle position sensor,need to hook up diagnostic scanner to verify.2nd possible fuel pump not putting up enough pressure when this happens generally when you push the accelerator pedal the car will die,now if you have a throttle cable still for the accelerator pedal the cable could have broken or came off on top of the engine you can see it .is it turbo charged bad turbo can cause this.lastly the convertor could be plugged which cause the exhaust to be come restricted so the engine cant rev up ,you will hjere like a hissing sound when you try to rev up or put your hand at the end of the tailpipe see if it has good flow out the tailpipe

Car wont stay running after it starts, runs around 500rpms then dies out,sometimes wont start. replaced fuel filter, and the main relay fuse. this problem started after replacing my gas tank.


fuel injected cars cannot vapor lock, so not the issue, when they replaced the fuel tank did they replace fuel pump? It should have been, but 2 things come to mind, they pinched wires when putting tank in and it shorts sporadically shutting off pump, look around with light and trace wires looking for any breaks in plastic coating, or fuel pump is failing.

Ust got a new car 2007 hyundai accent manual when ever i put gas in it it wont start normal have to rev it a little. looks like it may be missing a gas flap?


check the fuel pump pressure after putting the petrol in and then it will not start as the pump could have a low pressure ,as the car runs the EVAP system is pressurising the tank making up for the shortfall in the pump pressure

I have had this happen with the Jeep 4.0 motors because the rubber hoses going to the metal intake from the valve covers had cracks or were broken. Its been a while sine I've been under the hood of a 4.0 but that is a good place to start.

Car will start for a few seconds then dies.


Still sounds fuel related to me. Getting minimal fuel enough to start & or rev, but not maintaining proper pressure required. Try this. Get a can of WD-40 ready, remove air intake hose at throttle body. Start car & when it starts to begin to die, spray some WD-40 into front of throttle body & see if engine continues to run, as long as you keep giving it squirts of 1-2 seconds. If it does, change fuel filter first, but be prepared to do pump too. If you can get a fuel pressure test done on it, that would be even better. Let me know what happens.

99 Taurus wont start unless primed. Fuel pump is working


Check/Change Fuel Filter(s), PVC Valve & Emission Hoses
and/or
Gas that sits too long won't fire easily that's why we have to add winterize to our lawn mowers!
Try filling the tank with some high grade fuel cleaner additive. This stuff is like rocket fuel (about $10).
Also add a can of dry gas as you may have a lot of water and water vapor in your system!
Get a couple more cans of starter fluid too. (I always needed at least two to get my diesel running for summer)
Keep spraying and starting (It always took me at least a full can sometimes 2)
When it starts keep the gas pedal down and rev high for a good 5-10 minutes then see if it will idle.
If it still stumbles and falls consider adding another can of fuel system cleaner and/or dry gas.
Don't drain the tank as this usually just makes it worse by letting the bottom sludge stir up.
Never let your gas tank get too low as this will foul up your fuel system and always add fuel cleaner after every oil change (a must for fuel injection and cat. converter care)

Good Luck!
