Engine cranks fine, but will only run 5-6 sec then dies. If you press the gas, it sputters and dies immediately.


Seems like a fuel delivery problem.
May be a bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter or a fuel line problem.

What car make/model? What engine?

When it dies, try to turn ignition off immediately, wait a couple of seconds and turn the key quickly to the crank position (don't wait with the key in ignition-on position so that the fuel pump doesn't try to pump fuel into the fuel lines).
If it hesitates to start or runs significantly shorter before dying, you have pinpointed a problem with the fuel system.

Pls let me know what you find out.

Raw gas coming out of tail pipe.


If fuel is coming out exhaust - Do not try and crank as it could catch fire. a computer sensor or fuel injector is pumping so much fuel the engine can not burn it all. There very likely is fuel in the oilas well. This is a serious problem and needs to be towed to a knowledgeable mechanic

check for spark, no spark, no fire engine wont run, possible bad ignition coil, wire from coil to distributor cap, no power to ignition coil from ignition switch (rare) wire broken to ignition coil (even rarer)

Cranks but wont start with no spark


Check your fuel pump. It may have died. One way to check is to see if you smell gas at the tail pipe after trying to start it. If you don't, that is a good indicator that the fuel pump ma have died or your fuel filter is clogged.

What would cause the 03 beetle to start fine and then die immediately? There is gas in the car, and the car was driven into the garage the night before without any problems. Help!


The bproblem ussually is there isnt enough fuel pressure try fuel filter first then if that does not cure it you will have to get new fuel pump.

Leaking Gas From Tail Pipe


Don't drive it !!!! Don't START IT !! Have it towed to dealer or garage & have fuel system checked. Raw fuel is getting dumped into engine & could cause big problems, as well as a fire, or explosion.
