Just started to have this problem. will not stay running and if you push the gas pedal it will stall out like it is not getting any fuel. if you start it and don't touch the pedal it will run for about 45 seconds to 1 minute. not sure what it could be. got to work with no problem and when I started out to go home it began to sputter then died. had to have it towed home and the above is all that will happen. Please help!

You may be losing fuel pressure or have a hard fault in the electronics of the engine control system. Do this, have the fuel pressure checked and have a fault code test run on the computer system. If all is ok then the ignition starter switch is suspect as well and the MAF sensor which will not set a fault when it fails.

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

Fuel Cut Solenoid: Testing and Inspection
An inoperative shutdown solenoid can cause a no-start condition. Disconnect solenoid harness connector and with ignition switch in the "ON"
position momentarily touch solenoid harness connector to solenoid connector. If a "click" sound is heard, the solenoid circuit is operating
properly. If "click" is not heard, the system should be diagnosed as follows:
1. With test lamp connected to ground and the ignition switch in the "ON" position, backprobe the shutdown harness connector. If the test lamp
does not light check for open circuit form the ignition switch to the solenoid.
2. If the test lamp lights, check the ground circuit between solenoid stud and injection pump cover to see if connectors are clean and tight. If the
connections are not clean and tight repair and retest.
3. If the ground circuit is "OK", remove the injection pump cover. Connect a jumper wire between solenoid ground connector and ground. With
the ignition switch in the "ON" position, momentarily touch shutdown solenoid harness connector to shutdown solenoid terminal. If solenoid
operates, check for internal injection pump problem.
4. If the solenoid will not operate, replace the shutdown solenoid.

just a suggestion, but it might be possible you only need a fuel filter and not a pump and with a new filter you should be able to run your tank lower

Start with replacing the fuel filter. The Aveo fuel filter is located passenger-side rear, in front of the rear tire.

If there is no filter there, then the filter is a non serviceable filter and is integrated with the fuel sending unit. Your going to have to replace the fuel sending unit if the fuel pressure is slow, start with running fuel injector cleaner through the fuel system for the next few fill up's and hope that will clear up the issues your having.

The other thing to is that your IAC (idle air control) valve may be dirty and is stuck close, you can try cleaning it by spraying Throttle body cleaner through the throttle body, paying attention to the IAC passageway. A dirty of faulty EGR valve will also do the same thing.

Start with the simple and inspect to see if you do have a external fuel filter, and inspect the wire leads to the IAC, EGR and clean them with throttle body cleaner. Don't forget to run the fuel injector cleaner through your gas tank.

Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.

91 Lumina won't stay running; see lots of same question for same car but no problem solvers....Please help.


On electronic fuel injection pumping an pumping an pumping the gas pedal does nothing without the engine running ! Pushing the gas pedal to the floor will cause the PCM - engine computer to go into clear flood mode .

You have some very interesting ideas here , but not really how it works or is !

The vehicle will go into closed loop fuel control when the engine coolant temp reaches a definded temp an the O2 sensor get hot.

She would run for a couple minutes and die which is open loop when running, closed loop is when the sensors kick and it would die. Pulled spark plugs, they were black meaning no spark. Can only be 2

Black spark plugs indecate a rich condition , over fueled , wet spark plugs indecate no spark .

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

I have a 1978 Olds Cutlass just replaced the fuel pump and it will fire up but will not stay started. It was running for a day but would stall when I stopped. It would not stall if the car was in neutral....


You can adjust the carburetor with a straight blade screwdriver.Remove the air cleaner and have someone push the gas pedal,you'll see a lever connected to the carb moving back and forth,this is the accelerator linkage.While looking straight at the linkage you'll see a screw between the linkage and the carb.Using the straight blade screw driver turn clockwise a quarter turn.Replace the air cleaner and start the engine.The RPMs should be higher, now hold the brake pedal and put it in gear.Stays running,your good to go,otherwise give her another quarter turn.Now this is a "get-by"solution,you need to give some attention to your engine by giving it a tune up!That means changing:distributor cap&rotor,spark plugs&wires,carburetor rebuild,oil change and lube.Oh yeah,tighten down the four 1/2" bolts holding down the carburetor too!You could have a vacuum leak under the carb or even a vacuum line disconnected.This will also cause the low idle speed!Good luck!

ENGINE STALLS WHEN I STEP ON GAS PEDAL


Sounds like your fuel pump is going bad! The more you press on the pedal the more demand is on the pump and it cant keep up cuz its junk. Try to limp it to a shop to replace it, unless u wanna do that yourself.....

Motor bogs down at stoplight when pushin gas pedal


The fuel pump relay will cause a stalling or no start condition. You are likely having mass airflow sensor, fuel pump, or fuel pressure regulator issues.
