I have a 2000 mustang that will not stay running,,, it was running fine, i parked it for two months in the cold and didnt start it up, when i did... it wont run if u give it gas however it will set and idle. i replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter, a relay that sets on the fire wall that is in the fuel system, emptied the gas out of the tank and put fresh gas in it, and now i have been keeping it in a garage to keep the fuel lines from freezing, no check engine lights on. what do i check next


I would run the fuel pump for a little while with the fuel line disconnected from the engine into a gas can . Although you might have changed everything you might still have residual water in lines or motor. I would still put dry gas in the tank ... 2000 Ford Mustang

Stats: Ford Bronco xlt. 1985. 170,000 miles. New Starter. Oil & Oil filter replaced as of a week ago. Carbs cleaned with "Carb Cleaner" and a toothbrush. All original parts, otherwise. Now my issue is, my car wont STAY running. I turn the key and it starts - no problem. Engine turns over and sounds fine..just like it normally does. If i sit there though, or even if i drive and come to a stop light, the car wont STAY alive! It will bog out and die. This ride wont keep an idle. Why do

Car wont stay running after it starts, runs around 500rpms then dies out,sometimes wont start. replaced fuel filter, and the main relay fuse. this problem started after replacing my gas tank.

96 grand prix is surging and stalling. I have replaced the fuel pump within the last year, the EGR, the IAC, had the throttle body cleaned, and new plugs and wires. The check engine light comes and goes but mostly stays on. As long as I keep my foot on the gas at red lights and keep the tach at 1000 rpms or higher it keeps running. I'm eating through a tank of gas like crazy.

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

My car wont start!!!...help please!!! i turn the key over to start it and the fuel pump/auto shutoff relay/fuel pump relay all start to click rapidly, and the starter wont engage. after about 30 mins of screwing with it....it finally turns over and the fuel pump seems to go off after the system is pressurized. then it starts but you have to rev up the gas in order for it to stay running. after about ten minutes of that.....i can let off the gas pedal and it usually stays running. seems to run ok
