Change your spark plugs and the fuel filter. It also may be a clogged O2 sensor.

It will start but almost immediately sputters and dies. Can not keep it running. Gas pedal is hard to push down when trying to rev the engine a bit in park.


Sounds like it's time to replace fuel filter, or possibly a bad fuel pump. I'm uncertain why the gas pedal would be hard to push as it most likely isn't a cabled type on that new of a vehicle, but you can check by looking at the top of the pedal itself to see if there is a cable and if it's possibly frayed.

Why is it hard to push on the brakes


The most obvious cause for a hard pedal is simply not enough vacuum. Check the brake power booster by pumping on the brake pedal while the car isn't running. Continue pumping until you've "bled off" the vacuum from the booster. Hold the pedal down while you start the car. The pedal should go down a bit more beneath your foot. If it doesn't, then you should examine the connection between the vacuum hose of the brake power and the engine's vacuum.
Replace the brake power booster if the connection's fine, which would fix the hard brake pedal problem.

It may be your calipers need replaced. Check them for signs of wear. Look at the metal spring where the brake pads sit.
Apply tension to the pad and see whether you hear a pop. If you do, the brake pad is moving too much on the bracket. Replace the caliper. This could help the hard brake pedal.

2000 chevy silverado 1500 5.3 v8 engine starts then will shut down when you push gas pedal or will only run for a mintue then stalls out and then is hard to start again


You may be losing fuel pressure or have a hard fault in the electronics of the engine control system. Do this, have the fuel pressure checked and have a fault code test run on the computer system. If all is ok then the ignition starter switch is suspect as well and the MAF sensor which will not set a fault when it fails.

Hard to start on 2002 hyundai santa fe? everytime i push gas once then start work and run good can u tell me what is wrong?


yeah, it should start without pushing the gas pedal. Sounds then, like too little gas, or too much air. I would start with a fuel pressure test to see if pressure is up to specs. Also check for any vacuum lines disconnected or bad. Might want to see if engine has any trouble codes. Some parts places (autozone) will check for codes for free. When was last time you changed your fuel filter? Might need replacing. Good luck.

Have to push gas pedal to the floor for car to start. its an 89 gt mustang with the 5.0l. after it starts it runs fine, sometimes the engine light comes on when i get on it real hard. but there are no hard...


This would indicate a problem with the automatic choke. Putting the pedal to the floor creates the same effect as the choke when starting the car.

Engine will turn over, but will not start


Suggestion, don;t try and start the car with the gas pedal pushed to the floor. Asking for trouble in the future.

Could be a fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

Check engine light on? If so, Have the code read/scanned at your mechanic, or your local auto parts superstore.
