Not sure what the climate is that you are in but add a 1/4 to a half bottle of gas line anti-freeze to the gas tank. sounds like you may have water in your fuel and this will absorb the water.

Runs idle but stalls when give gas


Yes. Sometimes the internal screen deteriorates and clogs the fuel pump. You might want to replace the fuel filter and blow through it to see if it was clogged too.

My 2000 Grand Prix GTP runs great. However, the gas mileage has dropped to maybe 120-130 miles per tank and at idle there is a very strong odor of gas inside and around the car..noticed no drips on...


Following list of possible faults should help:-

Coolant sensor - engine is signaled as being 'cold' all the time, not just at start up, causing ECU to set longer injection cycle

? Low coolant level can prevent sensor being able to detect coolant temperature

? Faulty 'open' thermostat allows coolant to circulate without regulation and perhaps prevents the engine from achieving normal running temperatures.


FPR - broken diaphragm allows fuel to enter the vacuum line and then into the inlet manifold. Additional source of fuel makes the fuel air mix richer causing a faster and lumpy idle.


Vacuum leak - 'high oxygen' signal from O2 sensor causes ECU to set longer injection cycle.


O2 sensor - 'high oxygen' sensor error causes ECU to set longer fuel injection cycle


MAF - 'over reads' in error the amount of air entering causing ECU to set longer fuel injection cycle


IAT - 'under reads' in error the temperature of incoming air causing ECU to set longer fuel injection cycle

I have a 2006 victory vegas 8 ball w/ 900 miles on it. It has never had a problem staying started. For some reason now, i turn it on it stays running for about 3 seconds before it stalls. The air filter is...


Hi, Thomasyu2004 and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
2. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
3. Air fuel mixture adjustment too lean.
4. Pilot/slow fuel jet clogged.
5. Faulty accelerator pump.
6. Float level too low.
7. Float bowl contaminated old fuel, water, dirt, rust, etc.
8. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
9. Fuel line to carburetor kinked or pinched.
10. Fuel filter clogged.
11. Intake manifold leak.
12. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
13. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
14. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
15. Multi carburetors not in sync.
16. Faulty fuel pump.

Try changing the fuel filter sounds like your not getting enough fuel & if it is fuel injected I would try a fuel injector cleaner. Hope this helps to get you up and running.

I have a cadallic escadale. It will turn over but wont start.


The fuel pressure should be 60 to 65psi in your system with the engine not running and fuel line primed, (ignition key's to the run position). Once engine is running the fuel pressure should drop by 5psi, change the fuel filter and recheck the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. it's known for the fuel pump to fail when the gas tank runs low or out of gas, the pump will end up burning it self out since the gas is what keeps the electric fuel pump cooled. The other thing to is putting gas through the top of the throttle body to start the engine on the SEFI is a NO NO, well a BIG NO NO. it's been know for the gas in the intake to catch fire and burn up the poppet valve in the injection system causing the replacement of the fuel injection system. Keep me posted and good luck, be gald to help you get your truck running again for the july 4th. OH and it was not mentioned but did the fuel filter get replaced???
