Q: Won't run right and will no turn on.

asked by on

Truck will run at times and always starts up but when put in gear stalls out sometimes then will not start up untill i keep on turning it over and press on the gas repeatedly tipp it finally starts up. Now i have add more oil to the engine about 2 Q's after it started about mid December last year and yes it has had an oil change about 2000 miles ago so new filter ect. I was think it could be the gass line has some thing in it and needs to be replaced or just cleaned out but any other help as what it could possibly actually be would be great

My car has 142000 miles.
