When my taurus has sat overnight...or when it's cold. When I start it, it acts like it wants to die...then it revs up all of the sudden and seems fine. The gauge goes in between 0 and 1 for a few seconds than it revs up to 2 and slowly idles down to around one. I only have this problem when it's cold outside or if the car has sat overnight. What could be going on?

Unless you know it to be fresh, I think you may be about to lose the timing belt and that can be a disaster.\015\012Please look at this link before you drive a whole lot more:\015\012\015\012http://www.consumeraffairs.com/automotive/mitsu ... Mitsubishi Eclipse

I somewhat had a problem similar to this I would suggest checking your coolant temperature sensor, its in the engine manifold, I have a 98 it was really easy to do, its like a 14 dollar piece, and what will happen over time the OEM sensor they have w ... 1999 Saturn SL
When trying to start my car. it die's ,it takes me a least over 10 starts to get it going. feels like gas is not being pump or something. i've press the gas pedal down to the floor, even pump it, it rev's for a 10th of a second and then it just drops and dies. sometimes it just starts up on the first start and rev's really high, but most of he time nothing at all .
Those Saturns are very bad about this issue and is normally the crank sensor. It is a pain in the neck to get to. It has one bolt holding it on to the back of the engine/trans. I use a long extension with a swivel socket because it is buried in the b ... 1999 Saturn SL
Car dies When the digital gauge says theres 25mi worth of fuel left the car started acting like itwas going to die when stopped,had to keep one foot on the gas and one on the brake when stopped at light to keep from dying. Now it does the same thing except when the gauge says 100mi. of fuel left and the other day it finally died and won't start again,luckily made it to my block and only had to push a little way. Does this sound like the fuel filter? What else could this be? Does seem to be fuel
It does seem to be fuel related. It could also be intake air related. Try changing your fuel and air filters. Put a bottle of Seafoam into your gastank with the next fill up as well. Seafoam will do great things for your fuel injectors. If this ... 2007 Chrysler Sebring Sedan
90 Honda prelude is not getting fuel from the back to the front. Already put on new filter and pump. Still wont get to the front. So right now I have a wire going from my pump to my battery and when it wont start I touch the wire to the battery and fuel will run to the front then it will start. What would that be ? Also blew a water hose, changed it, now sometimes it acts like it has no power. Like its not getting gas annd its gonna die. But then it will start going again ? I opened up the bleed
Check the ECM main relay. It supplies power to the fuel pump and the injectors. If there is no power to the pump this is the first thing I would suspect. I believe it is located up under the drivers side of the dash and the very drivers side. ... 1990 Honda Prelude

1990 acura legend dies after driving for a while when it is idling or slowing down for a turn or stop. Sometimes when I go to a store and I have had a lengthy drive it is hard to start and then will keep dieing when I try to back out or go forward. I already changed the idle control valve and the fuel filter. We have also tried to adjust it and the same thing still happens. It seems like when i first drive it there is no dieing but after it has been driven awhile it starts acting up.

My 2000 Mitsubishi Galant starts hard and idles rough. Sometimes it almost dies when just starting in the morning or randomly when I'm going slow in a parking lot. It also acts like it's not getting a steady flow of fuel when it's going up and down hills. It kind of chugs. The check engine light is on constantly now. It used to turn off and on. It also sounds kind of like a unlubricated gear or belt or something when idling. It usually runs a lot smoother in neutral at stop signs.

My chevy lumina began acting like the emergency brake was partially on when braking, then 2 days later i go to store and i slow to turn and it dies, then i get it started again turn into store and it dies again so i glide into parking area, wait awhile get it running then i kept gassing it to get me home and pull into driveway it dies before i put it in park. now my question is does this sound like a fuel filter or fues pump. i think filter my husband thinks pump. thank you
Replace the fuel filter first, since it is the least costly and user friendly part to get to. My APV had disconnect fitting which you depressed tabs and released the filter from the line. Take the front (engine) side off first. If it is plugged the ... 1997 Chevrolet Lumina
Electrical Issues My truck almost died while I was driving it then it started revving higher after it almost died it quit revving not long after it started. I drove it straight home and parked it. When I went to restart it it would not restart it acted like the battery was low. I checked the battery and it is fine but at the time I thought the battery was going bad so I jumped it and drove about a quarter mile before it quit on me once again. I tried to bump start it but it would not fire. I got

I own a 2001 blazer 4.3 130,000 miles. I live in the dessert and it runs fine all winter but when the heat comes and the engine temp. gets over 200 degrees the trans. acts like it's slipping. Changed fluid and filter. From a stop as you start to go, the engine revs up to 2500-3000-rpm before it starts to shift. I can back off and it helps a little. Plenty of power in the engine but no shifting. In the winter no problem at all. Going on my third year of this. All I get from the dealer is the

My 2001 chevy tahoe acts like its not getting gas. It will start but no go anywhere and die when you give it gas. The check oil pressure light came on when it died today. It started after I had my oil changed.
I would call the place that changed the oil. It is possible some rookie disconnected something. It is also possible for the fuel pump to be failing by coincidence. ... 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe
