This depends upon the car; but, generally, any out-of-tune condition or vacuum leak can cause it. jb The very most likely cause is a clogged throttle body. A Chevy dealer will fix it for under $200. This is a very typical symptom of this problem. VBdenny A common cause is a corroded EGR valve. Often you can spray some lubricant on the rod the EGR valve rides on and that will correct the problem, if not permanently at least it could tell you if that's it.
what kind of car is it
We need a little more info here. Did the car run out of gas before you refilled it and ran into the "won't start" problem? OR, does this happen every time you put fuel in the car? I'd guess that sometimes, the car might start? Can you help us out with details, please?! FriPilot It happens every time i put gas in it.
It could be the fuel pump.
Miles divided by gallons of gas put in your car. I reset my odometer every time I fill up my car. That way, next time you would fill up your car, you take the miles that are on it and divide it by how many gallons of gas it takes to fill your car up.
Alot of things.. bad gas.. No gas.. Engine is dead.. etc.
My car has done the same thing and i found that old gas was the only problem
Push in the clutch and give it more gas.
If you give the car gas and it immediately dies but idles without giving the car gas, the VAF could be unplugged. If the car immediately dies without giving the car gas, it could have low fuel pressure, vaccum leaks, compression issues.
lock the car with the fob or use the button on the door. Close the car and unlock the car with the key on the drivers door and it should work. You will have to do this every time you unhook the battery
I found that putting low grade gas in car mad it idle high. Does it every time
fuel injection control module i would say
Well, if your car ran out of gas, it is NOT going to run very good. Here's a hint..........PUT MORE GAS IN IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah my 1991 Ford Tempo does the same thing it starts and idles no problem but if i stop at a gas station and leave it running and come back out to the car i put it in reverse or drive it dies every once in a while
my 86 was doing the same thing, a buddy of mine told me that the fuel filter was probably plugged.he said that the rough idle was do to the car strugglen for gas and it would die because when u give it gas the gas is all stopping at the filter so the car dies. i changed the filter and my car regained all its lost power and purred like a kitten!
No, for short increments, just let off the gas a little bit.
It is not the best because your stripping the car of every last bit of fuel.
sounds like you need a fuel filter or fuel pump or both
Every car needs innit thats what it needs. oh and to be precise it needs gas or fuel whatever u people call it
All Ford's are famous for "throttle position sensor" failure and it's also the cheapest & easiest fix to your problem
because you are really fag
Check the battery, or the alternator, check for a missing fuss or maybe your spark plugs aren't catching, check the gas line, get more gas, check the transmission. If your car hasn't been running for a long time then let it run for a couple minutes.
Could be your fuel filter or fuel pump.
The air filter on top of every car engine.
it probley needs a new battery or a new gas pedal. Another reason is the car might be to old
i can start the car, and it runs for a few meters, dies out like im giving it no gas. then it will not restart. after sitting about 10 minutes or so, it will start again and is drivable for a few more meters, then dies again to have the whole process rinse and repeat itself . it also makes a loud rattling noise like the valves are rattleing and then loses all horsepower then dies. once its started back up it sounds like the lifters are tapping, and just gets louder until the car dies again. it will not idle on its own.
