00 sebring sputtering and wont run only?
Assuming your spark plugs and wires are in good shape, put a checker on the diag harness and look for a bad speed sensor. could be many other things however - sorry but sketchy info. Good luck.

Answer . It could be any of several problems, anything from fuel delivery problems to ignition failure. Solid state (transistorized) ignitions can fail when a single trans…istor breaks down from heat. Just turning on a transistor can cause heat to build up so it doesn't necessarily take a lot of time for the get hot enough to fail.\n. \nThe problem can also be something as simple as a blocked fuel filter or a weak fuel pump. At this point, you'll need to find out if the problem is fuel delivery or igniton. When the vehicle fails check to see if there is a spark after the engine dies. quickly pull a spark plug wire and connect it to a spare sparkplug, set the sparkplug on a metal part of the engine then attempt to start the engine while an you or an assistant watch the sparkplug. If you don't see a sparkplug you might have a problem with a component of the igniton. You can also check the fuel pressure by connecting a fuel pressure gauge to the test port on the fuel line under the hood. You can also connect an on-board diagnostic scanner to the computer to see what codes, if any, are stored.\n. \nIf you would like to test a few things and ask some more questions later, feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
My car refuses to keep running it starts fine and will run for about 10 minutes then it will sputter and die the car starts back just fine but will only run for 2-3 minutes at a time afterwards?
Answer . \nSounds like a fuel problem. First change the fuel filter. If the problem presists after this, look at other areas such as the fuel pump, fuel pressure regualato…r, etc.
On a 1991 Chevy 350 tbi if your injector wires are crossed will it still run but only with a spit and sputter?
no the engine would still run fine if it spits and sputters sounds like timing mine did the same thing when i changed intake manifold gaskets
I had the same problem.Now I can only open and lock the car using the boot lock!There are two locking systems on the passat.The boot and obviously by locking the door(driver's…).I would say that the boot locking system is acting up or stopped working altogether.Do the rest of the doors open when you turn the key in the boot?That would suggest it's the boot locking system.I know it's a common problem with that year and year's before.I know four people who have had it.Usually requires changing the lock on the boot.
Sounds like no gas is getting to the carb. Fuel pump maybe.
1999 ford explorer wont stay running it died after you stepped on the gas hard and now turns over but wont idle or run It sputters and dies after a few seconds?
If there's no check engine light then it's just junky gas. You need higher quality like Sunoco or use Lucas injector cleaner. There's also a chance that the air filter is extr…emely dirty. Yep, that's your only options. It definitely couldn't be your fuel filter, fuel pump, MAF(mass air flow) sensor, uncentered distributor cap, bad fuel injectors, clogged fuel injector screens, spark plug wires, spark plugs, fuel pressure regulator, or a couple other various problems... ... if your ignorant of something, you probably should not give someone else advise concerning it. Check engine lights are not always accurate, and are not always a reliable source of analysis, especially on a '99. Sorry to be a little brash, but that was just a "junky" answer. My take: I just had this same exact problem. My issue ended up being the Idle Air Control Valve. It wouldn't want to start back up - especially when warm. I was getting bad O2 sensor CEL codes, as well. Turns out whoever replaced the IAC valve last neglected to install the gasket with it. I bought a new IAC valve for $50 with gasket, & replaced it. It was super simple - right on top, & only two bolts.
If the shaking is specific to acceleration and the shaking is very rythmic (not random) it is most likely a fault in the ignition system. Usually a tune up or ignition coil re…placement will solve this problem.
It is possible that your car has a faulty oxygen sensor that iseffected by the humidity and heat. This will create a rich or leanfuel mixture causing the car to sputter. It sh…ould be brought to amechanic for a tune up.
Why did your 1987 300 Nissan non turbo shut off while you were driving it and it started a little and spit and sputtered now wont run at all you made sure gas was it clear filter under hood is empty?
a bad fuel! pump do you hear a buzzing sound when you turn the key on ? if not chek your fuel pump relay loceted in the engine compartment it'a black box located on the right …hand side check fuse too if it checks out ok check for a loose connection check fuel pressure too
Have you checked the alternator?
Why wont your 94 Chevy lumina stay running in idle try to give it gas and it stalls it runs for a few then dies Ive replaced the fule filter but it still sputters and dies like a sensor is bad?
You have to change the mass flow sensor
On a 4.3 motor swap new motor is in turns over sparks getting fuel y wont it run only runs on ether?
if it runs on ether it is usually a fuel issue. I would suggest checking for vacuum leaks and injectors/carbs. there is not nearly enough info to make an accurate diagnosis

Why does your Expedition sputter only under load Air conditioner on its worse pull trailer even worse air trailer and incline wont hardly make it up?
could need a tune up.

There were two NFL players that wore 00: 1) Jim Otto, center for the Oakland Raiders between 1960-1974. 2) Ken Burrough, wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints and Houston …Oilers between 1970-1981.

92 Geo Storm 1.6L wont start all the time sometimes it sputters and wont start but smells like it floods when it does run it runs rich has new o2sensor IAC and Air filter any suggestions?
use higher heat rated spark plugs, it worked for me.
In Car Starting Problems
Why does my 1983 Datsun 280zx die whenever it rains It does not want to start or when it rarely does start will not stay running just dies no spit or sputter but only when it rains?
You need new wires, or distributor cap. Moisture can get into a cracked cap or cause wet wires where spark jumps from wire to wire, or wire to ground.
