    Do you have a timing light so you can check for spark? It sounds like it could be your coil pack. Are you sure it's getting gas?

Acts like its starving for fuel it has power it just jump around ?????? Change the fuel filter before going for the fuel pump or relay , if it starts an runs it's not a relay problem . Plus add some injector cleaner to the fuel tank .

I have a manual 05 tiida.The problems I am having are the starting of the car can take 5-10 mins at times to crank over and also when driving in lower gears the car acts like it is starving for fuel


Several GM cars of mine had check valve in fuel filter. I stopped the delay in cranking by changing the fuel filter. I think Nissan fuel pressure regulator act as a check valve. The issue of it taking a while to crank sounds like the gas may be running back to the tank and you have to pump the air out of the line before it cranks. Just a thought to look at, fuel pressure regulator.

Check fuel pressure. If weak then either fuel pump or filter need replacing.

When i try to accelerate the car acts like it has no power bugs down thought i might be starving for fuel


It would be helpful to know what you are working on, but first test fuel pressure at key on, then while running and compare to specs for your vehicle. Next, test for restricted exhaust (bad converter or muffler). Test for weak spark (bad coil/module).

Car will start after cranking but spits and sputers then stops, car jerks on highway.


This could be hundreds of possible issues, so think back--did this start long ago and gradually get worse? Could be either ignition or fuel issue. Test fuel pressure. Test ignition module.

Car dies after it warms up, no pressure in radiator when i remove cap, and acts like it's starving for gas


Some of the information does not correlate.

If there is no Pressure, then you Radiator Cap is Bad

Stalling or Starving for Gas can be a Fuel Pump or Air Filter

Remove the Air Filter and see what happens.

Test the PRESSURE of the FUEL System

Car runs like its running out of gas


Sounds like there may be an issue with the secondary ignition. Check the plugs and wires to see if they are worn out. Spray the wires with soapy water, if you see or hear the snap of electricity coming from them they are bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

Can't find fuel schrader valve on a 94 Buick Century


You could check pressure and flow at the fuel filter.If the exhaust is VERY quiet it could be a plugged catalytic converter.
