    What kind of car is it and what year

  2. Glhs736 says:

    Could be a clogged fuel filter. They will trickle fuel through and the engine will run for a little while then stop again. You did not tell us what kind of vehicle or if the car is hot or cold. What engine?

  3. Michael B says:

    Could be a faulty fuel pump.

  4. Jeff S says:

    Sounds like a fuel flow problem. Most likely a dying fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, or both.

    You can usually hear a buzzing sound when you put your key into the ON position (though not on all cars) that would be the fuel pump.

    Sometimes you can wake up a fuel pump by banging on the gas tank.
    Otherwise you’re gonna need replace your pump and or filter.

    Good Luck!
