    Hello all,

    I had an issue start recently where my car would stall on a cold start, but would fire right back up. If I gave it gas when it'd start to stall, it'd continue on fine. Once 30 seconds - a minute had passed and the engine was a bit warm, it ran with no issues, and if I started the car while still warm, no issues.

    Yesterday I hopped in my car to go to the gym. The car did not continue on fine once I got down the road, and now it will barely stay on for a second if it even starts at all. I replaced the IAC and that did not help, and my EGR is deleted. I'm just wondering what else could be causing this issue? Thanks in advance,
    Nick
    But they did it on the fast and the furious! So I did it twice. That makes me twice as fast right?

    Either that or try bending the tab 85 out on the fuel pump relay. Maybe the low speed setting is going.

    test for fuel and spark. fuel test right after it stalls out. see if you got pressure in the rail.

    Will do that, but I do believe the engine is getting spark because when I put my foot on the gas, it'll keep the car from just a bit longer. Seems to be more of a fuel issue. Never know, though.

    change fuel filter, pressure does not guarantee flow.

    ^^ if you have spark the crank sensor is fine.
    i just went thru this a month ago. fuel pump was dying, couldn't provide flow.
    if it turns out to be the fuel pump, get an OEM / Delphi pump. Under no circumstances get an Airtex pump -- i had two out of the box failures with the Airtex pumps
