Check intake passages like air filters, aftermarket filters like k&n are great filters but not when there not cleaned up and are clogged. check innitial fuel pressure and leave pressure gauge on vehicle overnight to see how fast fuel pressure takes to build on first start up, if it takes a wile (couple of cranks or so) it might
be a fuel pump (check relay to it first there is no pressure and suddenly it jumps up).

92 Honda Accord runs and starts fine I was great but when you accelerate starving for fuel has a new fuel pump new fuel filter fuel injectors don't know what the problem is help me

attach fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure during acceleration. fuel pressure should be the same as when vehicle is idling. if fuel pressure is good i would check ignition timing of your car. if timing is retarded it will affect acceleration and feel like its sluggish too.

Starving of fuel

Remove fuel filler cap and retry.

If no luck then check the engine for a vacuum leak.
You can try placing your hand over the carb intake and cranking or running the engine. If you feel a lack of vacuum, then you may have a vacuum leak. Check the intake manifold for cracks or gasket leaks.
Do a compression test on the engine. If it lacks compression, then it may also lack vacuum and may likely require major attention.

2004 honda, lost power and sputters. Will crank with gas pedal to floor but not enough power to move car. take foot off pedal and it dies

sounds like it is starving for fuel. check fuel pump relay to make certain pump is running. if it is, change fuel filter this may help. the best way to check to see if pump is running is to have someone turn car to on, not start. and feel the vibration at fuel tank with your hand. a pump only runs for a few seconds. until it gets pressure to engine. then when engine is running its on until you shut car back off. you may have to turn key on a few times to feel a vibration. good-day!!

Replaced fuel pump, replaced fuel filter. Car had gradual pick up, feels like starving for fuel and now starts but won't stay running. What other fuel component's should I look at ? Is there a rely or a...

check for a bad fuel pressure regulator. symtoms are--the vehicle runs rough, the engine may not start ( usually in the mornings). many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. replacement is only cure.

1997 Camry, sputters, shuts off. Starts again in a few minutes. Engine light off and sometimes on. Feels like if it starves for air or fuel. Help!

You have a bad Idle Air Control Valve. This is one of the most common problems on that particular vehicle.

Starving for fuel?

have you checked your fuel pressure regulator, I had the same problem and this is one that cost me about $60-$80 to fix, the fuel pressure regulator right on top of the engine that stupid round little piece if it clogs you starve your engine and it sips fuel a little bit, just enough for it to start, then it shuts try replacing the the fuel pressure regulator.. that's where i would start there are more things then this that cause your car and engine to starve itself of fuel. let me know if this works, if not we'll approach it small problems at a time.

If i stop or let idle i feels like its being starved for fuel.. turn off the engine and start it again it runs fine till i stop again. Just replaced the fuel pump a week ago and has been running fine.

Mine did that to me about 4 months ago. I started by changing the fuel filter it ran great for a month. but by doing that it released all the pressure off of the fuel pump which then went out. If you run your vehicle below 1/4 tank it starves the fuel pump. The pump needs that fuel because; The fuel is the lubrication for the pump. Running your tank down consistently over a period of time will short the pump out faster.
