    I guess I'll ask the obvious Can you drive a stick? j/k...... does everything seem to be fine and as soon as the car starts rolling it stalls? or does it stall before that point? Clutch feel funny at all? What happens if you keep the rpm's up, still do it?

    Ditto, you gotta know all of this first. Have you gotten it past this stall since it started, like keeping the rpms up. And if so, does it drive properly through the rest of the range.

    Haha i can kinda drive a stick, everything is fine when the car takes off when i get to about 10-15mph it just shuts off clutch feels fine, shuts off the same way when rpms are up.

    We may have a winner!!!



    That is the weirdest problem I have ever heard!

    Let me guess, no code!

    Does it rev up to the limiter in idle?

    Have yo worked on anything on the car lately?

    Have you ticked anybody off?

    One way for this to happen, I almost forgot about, is someone jamming something in your tail pipes, outside of this type of problem everything else is fuel/air sensing or delivery.

    Air - start at the air lid and check the filter. Make sure there is no blockage in your MAF sensor. Check all your electrical connections, MAF, IAC, TPS, everything up there. Check the Throttle Body and cable, manually actuate the the TB blade.

    Fuel - You could have a pump that is failing and will only provide a few pounds of pressure. You could have a blocked filter.

    These are the basics, it gets more difficult after this.

    Sounds likely to me...I was typing while you posted! Did yours do the same way...fall on its face while taking off?

    Ahhh! Good ole NY traffic!

    At least they fly for the most part. These clowns down here seem to run around with concrete governors on!

    i finally figured out what was causing my car to shut down. The fuel pressure was low there was just about a pound of pressure, so i have another question is there any way to adjust the fuel pressure or do i just have to replace the fuel pump.

    if you're car was running at all then there was more than a pound. Sure you checked it in the right spot? Not the green cap...that's the evap service port. You want to check it at the end of the rail on the drivers side. Unscrew that cap on the end of the rail and the shrader valve is there.
    The regulator is part of the fuel pump module so if you replaced that then it's not the regulator.

    What would you guys figure? At least 4lbs for a neutral idle (~800rpm).
