I have a 1997 Buick Lasabre custom. when I drive the car in the morning to work, everything is fine. Takes me about 15-20 minutes to get to work then I drive around the property all day and everrything is good.

The other night I put gas in my car, about half way home the car hesitated and felt like it was going to shut off, so I gave it gas and it didn't. Now the car hesitates when I am driving. I put gas in it again last night and a couple miles down the road, the car made a clunking sound and felt like it was going to shut off again. It didn't but it still hesitates when I am driving...what is wrong with my car?
It may very well be that it is the fuel filter that is dirty, if the car bogs down when giveing it gas then it is usually the fuel filter.that needs replced or dirt could have got into injectors, put some fuel injector cleaner in tank. and change fue ... 1999 Toyota Camry

I need serious help! Not a single mechanic has been able to solve my problem! After a night of resting, when I start my 95 Maxima up, it starts up fine. As I drive and as the engine warms up, the car will start to skip. As the driving continues, I experience all of the following issues: 1. There is very little acceleration and the harder I press the gas, the RPM needle goes down and the car will threaten to shut off or it will shut off if I continue to hold it down. 2. It shuts off when I come t

The car will start up, but will only go several yards before shutting off again. I took the car to a mechanic when the problem first started and they replaced the fuel filter thin

I have a 1997 Ford Thunderbird. Upon turning the ignition key the cooling fan turns on and the car will not start. There is nothing you can do to make the car start until the cooling fan turns off which takes about 5-7 minutes. Once the fan shuts off, the car will run and drive for as long and as far as you like. Once you shut it off and go turn it back on, the cooling fan turns back on and will take 1-2 minutes before the car will start, once the cooling fan again shuts off. It also seems
