%DETAILS%. Answer . The idle control solonoid is not functioning properly. Take it off and clean it and where it attaches to the throtle body, GoodluckJoe\n. \n. \nAnother possibility is that you are low or out of oil. This happened to my 96 ESi when I had a major oil leak from the oil pres…sure sensor. If your oil is too low, the car will cut out to save itself. (MORE)
What do you do if you run out of gas push the fuel reset and your 1998 Ford Explorer still does not start?
Answer . U check 2 C if U have 12 Volts @ the fuel Pump & hope the pump hasn't burnt up from running out of fuel.Then U check 2 c if U have fuel pressure @ the FUEL Rail with a correct fuel pressure Tester.IF U press the schrader valve U COULD get fuel in your eyes.SOMETIMES U will pick-up ALL th…e TRASH with the FUEL filter-so CHECK 2 C if the filter is clogged..

What is wrong with a 1995 Ford Explorer 4wd if the front end shakes slightly when stepping on the gas but stops when you take your foot off the gas?
%DETAILS%. Answer . Have the torque convertor clutch in the trans checked out for slippiing..
Answer . \nI had the same problem with my civic, my distributor had gone bad. It wasnt lubricating properly, and eventually it died and I got a new one.. Answer . \nThere may be a break in one of the vacuum lines or rubber tubes that come off the rochester 2se carburetor or one of the many o…ther vacuum lines. I know-I had my truck shut off and not crank up again due to a dry rotted rubber vacuum line which sometimes are hard to see or find.. Answer . Have you tried replacing your air filter and breather filter. I was having a problem with my '84 S10. It would not stay running unless you kept your foot on the accelerator, especially in the mornings after it had set for a while. I simply changed these two filters and changed the air temp. sensor, (located inside the breather) and now all is well. It only cost me around $30.00. (MORE)

Why would a 03 Focus shut down after turning onto the off ramp from highway and only stay running with foot on gas but stalls again if stopped and take about an hour to be back to normal?
Answer . \ntwo possible causes are 1 Timing is incorrect, due to belt stretch or jump ( possibly done when deaccelerating on to the offramp) Fuel pump problems, and one other is the ignition module
Why does your 91 Chevy Lumina 31 start but not stay running unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal?
Answer . \nOn my 90 Olds Cutlass Supreme with a 3.1 V6 I had that problem. I think it was because the computer went out. The dash was digital and nothing showed up and when I left my foot off the gas it stalled.. Answer . \nMy 91 Lumina acted like that right before the fuel pump went. If I… pumped the gas pedal quickly I could keep the car running long enough to get home. If I recall, the fuel pump is accessed through the floor of the trunk. Look under the carpet in the trunk pretty far in towards the back seat on the driver's side. You'll see wires going thru a little plate and 2 screws remove that plate. (MORE)
What can you do next after replacing the throttle positioning sensor on 1985 Pontiac Firebird it won't stay running without foot on gas?
Well...you should check fuel injectors, fuel pump, intake, and hope its not electrical. In mine it was and ended up in the wiring harness. Check your linkage.
What needs to be replaced in a 1985 Pontiac Firebird if the car only stays running while foot is on gas and the throttle positioning sensor had been replaced?
Answer . it might be because the idle is low turn your idle up and it should stay running
How do you find the problem with a 97 grand Cherokee that will not stay running once your foot is off the gas?
Turn the idle up on the throttle body Do not adjust the throttle body as this will cause other issues. the most common cause is a bad battery. Although the battery may still start the engine the voltage drops too low and the power train control module loses the closed limit of the IAC motor. Also us…e a spray fuel system cleaner to clean the throttle body. If you are not comfortable with doing this take it to a local repair shop and have the fuel system and throttle body cleaned. "speaking from 12yrs working for Chrysler Dodge Jeep" My 98 Jeep did that and come to find out I have to put in a new PCM !! (MORE)
If your owner's manual recommends premium, it is only a recommendation. It will run on 87 octane as well. If the owner's manual says 87 is ok, and you are having a spark knock unless you run premium, then something is probably wrong. The manufacturer makes fuel recommendations based on PCM calibrati…on(internal programming stradegy) that also affects the ignition timing of the engine. If your owner's manual says to run premium, that is why, but again, that is only a recommendation. It doesn't mean that it wont run on the other, or that there will be any engine damage because you ran 87 octane. (MORE)
Answer . I'm not a mechanic but I don't understand why you would have to. change your fuel sensor because you ran out of gas. Did your. gas gauge stop working ?. I can see possibly having to reset the fuel pump inertia switch, located. in your right front passenger area, on the right foot kic…k panel, or. maybe having to change the fuse for your fuel pump if the pump got. hotter than normal, assuming it didn't burn out completely.. Any other opinions ? (MORE)
Answer . You might have a blown head gasket. You might have some condensation or antifreeze mixing a little in your engine and it will run ruff for a few minutes. The colder it gets outside the worse it will get. I have a 99 exploder and it does the same thing in the winter time. When I start it,… it will idle really low and sometimes die without help on the accelerator. Try new spark plugs, replace air filter, spray air inake cleaner in intake manifold, in other words do a really good tune-up. If the check engine light is on take it to auto zone and have them read what error codes the engine has. They don't rease the old codes anymore but you can still disconnect the power cable from the battery for about 15mins to erase all the data from the computer and the light will turn off. If there is still something wrong with it the light will come on after about 50 miles or sometiimes after you start the car 7 times. Hope this was helpful.If you really love your car and want it to run good and have the money to fox it, take it to the Ford delaership to get fixed!!!. I have a 2000 Explorer. When it gets really cold, my car will ping and sputter until I step on the gas. For some reason, this problem only happens the first time I start my car of each day. . I purchased BG 44K for my car. It worked like a miracle. Two days after putting it into my vehicle, my Explorer starts perfectly no matter the whether. I paid about twenty dollars for it. . Don't waste your money on anything else until you try this stuff. It is GREAT!!! (MORE)
3.8 98 grand prix. runs for 2-3 min then idles up and down. sometimes stalling it out. starts right back up everytime.after it stalls once without staying on the gas it stalls back out right after.?
Answer . Your fuel pump may not be able to keep the pressue up, because of either a worn pump or clogged fuel filter, or clogged tank filter.
Answer . \nRunning out of gas is a much more serious problem than it used to be, because most vehicles are now fuel injected. This means that fuel is injected into the cylinders at high pressure through very small openings, which can be clogged by sediment in the fuel tank if the fuel level get…s too low.\n. \nFirst off, you need to relieve the pressure in the fuel system by allowing the air to escape from the fuel line. On top of the engine there is a pipe which runs all the way across the engine, which is called the fuel rail. At one end of this pipe there should be a valve of some kind, perhaps which looks like the valve on a tire. Opening this valve while the fuel pump is running will allow the trapped air to escape from the fuel line. Once gas begins to squirt out of the valve, close it, and crank the engine. If the vehicle does not start within 10 to 15 seconds, stop cranking the engine and let the starter rest for at least 2 minutes. Excessive cranking can burn the starter motor up. If repeated cranking will not start the engine, and there is fuel in the fuel rail, you may have clogged fuel injectors. (MORE)
Could be several things . More than likely it is your idle control sensor. It will idle, and then all of a sudden by itself rev up. If it continues to rev constantly your throtle cable may be broke, the spring, or possible the cable is catching on something
Answer . If you are referring to the daytime running lamps (DRL) on Canadian. Explorers not turning off when the parking brake is engaged, I. believe that is a defective DRL module.
Without taking the fuse out of my 01 Pt Cruiser how can I keep my fog lights from staying on when engine is off?
Answer . Pull the connectors off at the bulbs. But the PT's were great for having the switches go bad. Jiggle the switch around and see if the lights go off. If they do, go to the dealer and ask for a multifunction switch. They aren't terribly expensive. This is most likely your problem.
1989 Oldsmobile cultlass ciera..Why does the tachometer read high when driving on HIGHWAY. will run 30 mile a hour without putting foot on gas pedal?
Try checking the TPS (throttle position sensor) usually they raise the Rpm on Idle like that or on Drive .That be the first thing I do . Then check your Tachometer it may have a short bad connection etc. Also clean or replace the IAC (Idle air control Valve) as needed . Hope this gives you an Idea o…n where to start. (MORE)
Pontiac Montana won't stay running without foot on gas pedal just started now that it is getting clod. Once I keep my foot on the pedal for a good minute or so it will stay running any help?
Answer . More than one thing can cause this. The most recent one i repaired was the coolant temp. sensor for the computer. You will need a scanner to check its output to the computer.If it does not show a cool enough temp.,the computer will not send extra fuel to serve as a choke and it will die …at an idle or run rough until it is warmed up. Hope this helps (MORE)
What should you do about your Ford Taurus not staying started unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal?
check your hoses, there could be a vacuum hose with a leak causing this problem
Hi,. Good question you have there and I for one am glad you asked it.. Your system will burn way way rich air fuel ratio mixture as that LP gas requires much smaller jetting simply because its heat output per given volume is roughly 3 times that of natural gas.. Be careful with any kind of fuel i…n your home, (especially) LP fuel. I have seen houses blown completely off their slabs and foundations because of a fuel leak matched with some form of spark. ( Usually an electronic furnace ignitor ) NOT ALWAYS,,,, but, you get the point.. Have your LP supplier to rejet your furnace and set it up for you. Usually if you are changing over to their fuel they do it at nominal prices and sometimes nothing.. Hope this helps: Jimiwane (MORE)
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 extremely 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. (MORE)
This problems is usually caused by a part gone wrong within thefuel system. A person can check this by adding fuel injectorcleaner to the gas tank, checking the fuel line for leaks, and byreplacing the fuel filter or fuel pump.?Ã¦

There might be carbon build up on your top port where your gas is sprayed in through, I want to say butterfly valve, if it has one under the intake manifold.
You can burn coal or wood in a stove-it has no moving parts so does not need electricity. or you can simply wear a jumper...
When you start your car in the morning it wont stay running you have to hold the gas down What is wrong?
If your car has the check engine on it could be your fuel pressure regulator located on your fuel rail..
Need to remove the air intake hose where it hooks to the engine. look up into the throttle body at the throttle plate. It should be real shiney and clean on both sides. You will have to push gas pedal down all the way to see other side and up in it. If it is dirty, clean it with a tooth brush,… rag and carb. cleaner till it shines. If that don't fix it then let us know. Have you checked the fuel pressure with a gauge ???? (MORE)
1984 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ 40 won't stay running without foot on gas pedal. 2F engine with carburetor. Any help. Whats wrong?
The 84 model has some serious smog equipment if I remember correctly. Best not be fooling with that stuff. Check the simple things first: Check your idle speed and mix adjuster screws. Idle jet\passageway clogged or float is dead. Vacuum leak anywhere will give you a poor\no idle. Goo…d luck. (MORE)
First thing to check / replace is the fuel filter. Next suspect is going to be the fuel pump, and if it is generating sufficient fuel line pressure.
Sounds like a dead battery. You need the battery to start the car, but once it is running the engine runs completely off of the alternator (which also recharges the battery if the battery is still good).
What is wrong with 01 Alero that wont stay on if you take your foot off the gas and put it in gear Also it is overheating and makes a high pitch noise Already replaced the head gasket I am stumped?
you could be leaking antifreeze and that is what is causing the high pitch noise and overheating. Check the clamps on the hoses, when it gets hot and bubbles out of that, it can create a whistle.
Why won't your ford escort lx start with out half throttle then won't stay running without the gas been pushed then it runs rough?
we have a ford escort lx and it wont start without the gas throttle half way then it starts but is very rough but wont idle by itself
Start it up. Put the A/C on High .Slowly get off the gas. If it keeps running the Mass Air Flow Sensor needs cleaning. It's an easy job. Google it Shops charge about $ 100.00 .. This is the first thing I would check.
Why does your 2001 jeep Cherokee start but not stay running unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal?
You need a new battery. The same exact problem just happened to me in my 2002 jeep grand cherokee. The computer in the vehicle wont let it run unless it is getting a high amount of voltage from the battery. When you replace the battery, the problem should be fixed.
I have a 1996 Seville SLS start up and run good the problem is that while driving alone it will cut off without any warning when you take your foot off the gas Shift it to N and it will start?
Mine did the same thing. Dealership no help just big bills. I fixed the problem with a 2.00 ground strap at ground on battery to engine block. My Seville SlS shut on and off only in drive never in N or P. Hope this helps Ted
You have an inbalance with air/fuel mixture. I had this problem and after checking air filter, cleaning air intake ultimately it was changing out the IAC that fixed my problem. IAC is located close to the engine fire wall behind the manifold (just left). Easier to replace the whole thing cost me abo…ut $25 and an hour to install. (MORE)
Good Luck!!!!!!\n\nI'm not sure what you mean by "stays cold".\n\nA good vacuum will have low expansion/contraction, and is a relatively good insulator.\n\nGasses will conform to the Ideal Gas Law,\n\nPV=nRT\n\nIf you keep everything constant except temperature and pressure, then the pressure of all… gasses will vary directly with the temperature in Kelvin.\n\nLiquids and Solvents should have an expansion coefficient which would be unique to each compound.\n\nIf you do choose a liquid, make sure your boiling point (at your max pressure) is less than the maximum temperature of your system, then build in some kind of expansion tank.

It could be the dish and the spoon. That comes from the nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle.
Fuel starvation - filter, low fuel pressure from the pump . Poor spark - plugs, wires and/or coil . Vacuum leaks. The first two are well covered by the "Related Questions" below. Vacuum leaks - do a detailed inspection of the red and green vacuum hoses going from the back of the intak…e manifold and linking to the fuel pressure regulator and egr valve on the right hand side of the engine, and where they connect to a valve over on the left-hand side of the engine. (these locations are in reference to the DOHC/Duratec engine) These are very small diameter, hard plastic hoses. I recently found that these hoses had become so brittle they just shattered with the barest of touch. I suspect these vacuum leaks contributed to an intermittent starting problem, ultimately deteriorating to a no-start. Instead of messing around with finding factory original type hoses, I ran standard vacuum hoses to get the engine running - a little 'not-pretty' for the moment, but functional.

1997 Dodge van 2500 3.9 stalls out in passing gear or when passing. Install new fuel pump no more problem. In the morning it will not stay running until it's warmed up-you have to keep foot on gas?
You have 2 problems- 1 was the fuel pump which you have already fixed, number 2 is the crank sensor located under the engine cover on the passenger side where the transmission and the rear of the engine meet, there will be two wires going to it-and two bolts - you can use an Allen wrench or a half-i…nch ranch unscrew look at bottom of sensor it may be covered with oil and grease-clean off reinstall see if it works. If not take sensor out take to the auto parts store and measure up. There are two sensors-one for an automatic and one for a manual. The two are different. Before anything unhook the negative battery cable first also that will clear out any codes. After everything is together install the negative battery cable. If that doesn't work e-mail me I will pay for the part. That's how sure I am!!! painterrb@Windstream.net. (MORE)
I experienced this problem first hand, my error was that i used the wrong type of gasoline in the machine which caused it to shut off after several seconds while idling. Another thing to check is the spark plug because there can be significant carbon build up on it. I have a 4 stroke Makita weed eat…er by the way so i just had to remove the gas from the chamber and replace it with premium unleaded gasoline. (MORE)
you could eat lots of vegetables and fruit that would help kid im fit and i did exactly 300 blocks of running
PCV valve may need replaced or the air intake may be leaking. Check for holes in the intake system or vacuum leaks.
my mom had this problem with her car. they said she needed a new transmission. and quite possibly a new engine. take it to the garage (midas, monroe, etc.) and get it looked at.
Could be a bad fuel sending unit. Could be a bad fuel pump. Could be a partially blocked fuel filter. Could be a blocked injector. Your best bet is to get into the shop for diagnostic.
Sounds like a dud fuel pump to me. Check all the wires first .Funny though , 87 rx7 had no carburetor...it has electronic fuelinjection.
