Car starts,runs for maybe 30 seconds then stalls
I had an air flow hose that came off a couple days ago,i
got that fixed but now my car doesn't stay running,it starts
but sounds like crap,it runs for about 30 seconds then
stalls,i also have soot coming out of my exhaust,i checked
the fuel pump,it was good,i checked the gas and it didn't
seem to have any water in it
If you can get a code reader on the car, that might help. Most common causes for an engine to die right after starting are idle air control valve system, MAP/MAF sensor, engine coolant temperature sensor, faulty ignition coil, and maybe the fuel pump or its relay.
I used a code reader,nothing came up,my check engine light isn't on
The soot is a sign that the engine may be flooding.
