Help please my car will not start right away it takes about the thrid or fourth time. It almost sounds like its not getting gas. When it does start sometimes when I turn a corner it stalls out and won't start til the third or fourth time. What could cause something like this? Theres no check engine light on or anything so I'm kinda ruling out a sensor. I duno if one of the coil packs could be bad, but I duno if that would cause that. any suggestions?

I duno about that I can kinda rule that out because when it does start it run fine. Seems to have a little bit of lost power but thats about it. When a fuel pump goes it just goes

Well thats not always true, fuel pumps can be possesed sometimes before they totaly die.

You said it dies when you take a turn?
Are you letting the fuel pump prime before you start it?

Replace the Fuel filter. It doesn't cost that much 10-20 bucks.

If it's stalling then it's definetely got something to do with the fuel lines. They sell stuff at local car stores (pep boys, etc) that you pour into your gas tank which will then clean out your gas lines. You should try that.

Great it got worst. Now when I turn a corner or when I'm going like 55 MPH the car stalls out I put it in neutrel and it starts right back up. Wierd, I'm getting so mad with trying to find the problem I might just have to take it into the shop : (
