often when i start my car it sputters and sometimes dies, if i start and rev the engine it's fine. But if i just start the rpms will drop down and the car will die 7/10 times. What could this be any ideas?

ok need more info like is the check engine light on also what year how many miles you know good stuff like that also if check engine light is on go to auto zone and have them get the codes for you and then return here and post them. cause we need alot more info to help you then what we have so far. Also I think if it was just your fuel filter it would sputter while your pushing on the pedal driving.

SAME PROBLEM! My check engine light is on in my 97 catera. I changed the fuel filter a week ago and it started sputtering when i push the gas but only when cold. This morning I tried to start it and it wouldn't. It sounds like it wants to start but its out of gas. So I was thinking... i took the filter off and back on to make sure the hollow bolts were lined up for free gas flow but still the same result PLEASE HELP!!!

I just messed with it for a while. A little oil on the spark plugs but only where it screws in. It looks now like my AC pulley is seized. It won't move when it turns over. I'm thinking about bypassing the pulley all together and get a smaller belt??? prolly a bad idea or what do you guys think?
