Answers :

Make sure the carburetor is bolted down securely so that no air is leaking in under it. Make sure the screws around the top of the carburetor are secure.

Being careful, get your head down into the engine compartment while the car is idling, listening for an air leak.

Take an unlit propane torch that has the valve open, and pass it along all the intake component mating surfaces. When you get to a leak, fuel from the torch will pass through the leak rather than regular air, and the engine will speed up a little (or a lot). Point it at all vacuum hose ends (both ends of each hose).
Fuel filter needs to be replaced.

1999 dodge ram 1500 5.2 4x4 when I drive it down the road it act like it's not getting gas then when I push the gas pedal down sometimes it will take off running fine and other times it will backfire try to stall. The map senser was bad so we replaced it.Now the truck has a hard time starting up and I have to keep my foot on the gas pedal to keep it running. I can not even drive it now and the only vehicleI I have. Is it my fuel pump maybe? The truck has 170,000 miles on it.Please Help!


Sounds to me like your over fueling. Are you sure you have the map connected correctly. Make sure with the engine running you have vacuum. A plugged vacuum line can cause your problems. Make sure no pins are bent in the connector. Listen with the eng ... 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

2000 chevy s10 runs for a few minutes then dies. Had fuel pump, fuel pump relay and fuel filter replaced at shop but the thing will still not run properly. You have to keep your foot on gas to keep it from dying so the idle has to be above 1500 rpms to stay running. If you let foot off gas it dies. So you have to keep foot on gas pedal and one on brake to drive it. Someone help me I am about to run the thing off a bridge

Driving on the highway with the AC on then it started blowing hot air. Drove down the highway and when exiting the highway and high speed driving, the car kept trying to stall, had to keep my foot down on the accelerator pedal.

It is a 2004 Mercury Sable, LS 3.0L gas engine, not flexifuel. It seems that maybe the motor has someth

My 1994 Cadillac STS car accelerated by it self when I was driving casual, gradually increasing speed, I applied breaks but the car was still fighting to accelerate, going from 30 mph to about 45 mph in a couple seconds without me using the gas pedal. I was getting ready to turn off the ignition while at that speed on the road, but first tapped the gas pedal rapidily a couple times( on a hunch) then the car immediately resumed to normal, with out it speeding by itself. Pretty scarry. This is the

My 2000 chevrolet blazer just shut off while driving and u can turn the key and still hear the fuel pump engage so maybe other than a possible solonoid problem i wouldnt know other than the fuel pump or quite possibly a fuse or relay that would keep it from starting because it acts as if there is no complications turning over so have any ideas for on how to trouble shoot from the side of the road?is there quite possibly a reset for the fuel pump?would you hear the fuel pump engage if the rese

Kia Optima I just replaved my timing belt, oil pump belt, crank senser, map senser, R & R senser. The timing belt was not broke but did have a few missing teeth. It will start and run just fine on a cold motor. After the motor warms up it has a rough idle, low idle, and will eventually die without keeping the idle up with my foot on the gas pedal. It will surge on highway speeds, most climbing hills. It also has developed a vibration while accelerating. Jump before it shifts into a higher gear.


Is the car flashing any codes. I would look for fuel issues possibly fuel filter, injectors etc. Because these items are easier to check. Otherwise it sounds as if the timing is off on the car. If the Hydraulic tensioner is not replaced this coul ... 2004 Kia Optima

Fuel issue I have a 2002 grand prix. Lately when I drive it I lose acceration going up hills when I hit the gas pedal the RPM goes up and I still lose power. Today when I came home I slowed down on to the road and it died I waited several minutes and got it to start. As long as I had my foot on the gas it was ok, once I let up and slowed down it died again? I am assuming a fuel problem, the mass air flow was replaced a year or so ago. Do you think the fuel filter or pump? Thanks Susan

2010 Mercury Milan hybrid. Off road a month for left side body work, until yesterday. Now on driving at highway speeds for a while the throttle control warning light goes on, and when gas pedal is pressed the accelerator seems to pulse on and off. Collision shop spoke with dealer, they said probably a dirty throttle body. If so, I think it may be from sitting too long. Can I just put injector cleaner in tank or similar product for throttle body, and keep going?

I have also changed the ignition control module. After changing the module it ran good for a few minutes and then started doing the cutting out and dying thing again. How do I fix thi

Rumbling noise when accelerating.. coming from under driver side... I feel it in the pedal.. sound comes off the start and then it goes away once I go faster. I have changed tie rods, rack and pinion, wheel bearings, rotors, breaks, shocks are new. What could it be? Is driving me crazy. Could it be a bushing? Ball joint? Control arms?
