My car has trouble starting & staying started. Sometimes it does start & runs fine for a few seconds- a few minutes, Then it just suddenly cuts off. engine sounds very smooth when it is running. No knocks, doesnt sputter any. I have replaced air filter, oil, pcv valve, & the battery is good with a fresh charge. I didn't drive the car for a few months so I added new gas with fuel system treatment as well. What could be my problem?

Engine Trouble Just got my truck back for my mechanic, with re manufactured engine from Jasper. It has run good for a week, then all of a sudden it started running rough, like water in fuel. While in park or neutral it idles fine and revs great, but when I put it in gear the problems begin. I just put ''HEAT'' to dry any water out in the gas and also changed the fuel filter. After doing that now the motor doesn't want to spin over and the battery is good

My engine starts fine, but when it is put in gear and the accelerator pressed the vehicle doesnt move.

It also has been sitting for about 7 months prior to me trying to move it. Prior to it being stored, it occasionally had problems where it would have trouble staying running and when brakes were applied the engine rpms would be pulled d

I have a 1990 gmc truck 5.7 liter. This engine was rebuilt 10K ago.

Intermittent problem with starting the vehicle. Sometimes it will start and run fine, no problem at all. Then the next time , it will not start. The starter turns the engine and all electrical guages seem to be working fine, the radio and lights all work correctly.

Having problems with the timing on da engine. The envoy will start for a bit. It will run in neutral or park, but when put in drive or reverse. It stalls or runs really rough. We checked the fuel pump and its good. We checked the firing order of the spark plugs and theyre correct. The coils are fine as well. So we feel that it may be the timing or timing belt? im not sure, so would appreciatte any trouble shooting or tips. Thank you.

I have an early 1999 GMC K1500, 5.7L with approx 160,000 mi. Its having an intermittent no start problem that's driving me and my mechanic crazy. It will crank over very well, seem like it's going to start but doesn't catch. It will do this until the battery is dead if we keep trying. Then we leave the truck sit for half a day or more and it will fire right up and run fine, no check engine lights or trouble codes until it decides to do it again. Outside temp doesnt' seem to effect it. We've

I have a 1998 Nissa Maxima with 277K+ miles. I bought this car new and it has run great over the years. Recently when turnig the key to start (cold or hot)the engine starts to crank but sometimes "kicks" back or cranking slows down like the battery is the problem. My mechanic first thought the cam and crankshaft position sensors needed to be replaced. We did that but the problem persists. When the engine does start it runs fine at all speeds.

Engine Sputters Hello. I just bought a 1980 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser. It runs fine most of the time. However, once in a while the engine will sputter and act like it is going to stall. If I turn it off and let it sit for an hour, it turns on and runs fine. On a longer trip, I have had these problems. I stopped and turned it off and removed the carburetor filter and tapped on the carburetor with a wrench and it starts and runs fine. Do you have any idea what type of problem this could be? Thanks.
