If u give it gas while trying to start it will start but barely runs and can barely give it any gas. Has no power.

Emisson test down so how do I get get fix .

My sunroof was off track but I fixed that issue. Now I can't get the motor to catch on the little red gear plug for it to open and close properly.

Stalls sometimes when comming to a stop,and seems to have low idle

Car has sat for a year or so. Worked fine when it was put up. Trying to get it operational again. Now it needs a new battery but, connected to jumper cables, the engine will turn over fine but won't start. When it does start, it runs for about a second, purring along just fine, then quits. Tried putting a few drops of gas directly into the intake but no go.

my ignition wouldn't work with my keys so I was taking apart the top on the tumblers and the anti-theft ribbon came out of the steering wheel

I HAVE CHECKED THE OIL IT IS FINE. THE LITE STARTED COMING ON YESTERDAY ON MY WAY TO WORK. IT ONLY COMES ON WHEN I AM BRAKING OR AT A STOP. COULD IT BE THE SENSOR AND WHERE WOULD I FIND IT ON THE ENGINE?

Just had the transmission rebuilt 2 months ago, good clutch on it, is all of the sudden barely going into all gears. I have to double clutch to shift into any gear, which makes me think it's the synchros in the tranny, but why would the all 6 synchros go bad at once. The clutch was good 2 months ago, not blowing smoke so it's not burnt out, maybe pressure plate? Master cylinder and slave cylinder are all in good shape too, please help.

It's actually an 87 Chevy celebrity will not start getting fuel to the engine will start when I shoot starting fluid into the intake but nothing else what can I don

I started the car to let it get warm before going shopping as I was about to leave the drive way is died . I attempted to start it again and it started and the spurted off like it was not getting gas . I replace the fuel filter it was not out.so what else could it be could it the relay or is it the fuel pump?
