How to keep car running. Starts then dies after only a few seconds.
If you feather the gas pedal will it stay running? If so I would check for dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate.
I have tried feathering the gas pedal, still turns off. I did notice that when I unplugged the camshaft sensor it still does the same thing. I thought the engine was not suppose to turn over at all. Checked to see if it was magnetic. It was not. Still starts, then shuts off after 2 seconds. Any other suggestions?
Check the fuel- tank filter -if it has been run on low-fuel, tank residue may be clogging fuel filter causing it to sputter out. Pain in the neck process but inexpensive fix. Drop and flush the tank, replace the filter?
