I have a '93 Toyota Camry , LE, 4cin., over 200,000 mi. Runs like a dream. Problem, when the car gets to op. temp. when I come to a stop the car will die. Not sputter, RPMs just keeps dropping to 0. New PCV,wires, plugs dis. cap, rotor, air filter. Still dies, not all the time. Just enough to keep me guessing. Can you help?


Replace the IAC valve (idle air control valve)!! This is located below the throttle body, usually grey colored with a wire harness connected to it. This sensor controls air flow through the intake, if dirty or sticking it will cause stalls. Also chec ... 1993 Toyota Camry V6

My 2001 new Beetle will not stay running. It starts up, then 5-8 seconds later will sputter out and die. If I pump the gas peddle a bit after it starts, it trys to stay running longer but then sputters out and dies again. I replaced the fuel filter, made sure the car has plenty of gas, but same thing keeps happening. It acts as though its starving for fuel? Please help me troubleshoot this, I cannot afford to take this in. Maybe I should have never bought it based on all the problems I'm reading

Once again, trouble with my 2002 ford escape. It is a 3.0, 4x4. When I try starting it, it dies almost immediately. The only way to keep it running is by pressing on the gas pedal; just enough for it to run at about 1k rpm. As soon as I release the pedal, it idles at about 300 or less, then sputters and dies. I have changed the EGR valve, fuel filter, and alternator. Anyone on that can help? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you


Mass air flow sensor or Manifold absolute pressure sensor are two sensors which are interconnected with the EGR valve and both will affect engine performance, in particular the idle.\015\012I don't know which of these sensors the ford escape ha ... Ford Escape

My 6 cyl F150 runs great untill it doesn't run at all. Driving at 70 (or any speed) it's like the key just turns off. No coughing, sputtering, or anything. It just dies. If I'm going fast enough it'll usually restart just from being in gear. at 35 it just dies. After sitting it'll restart. I've replaced the ignition module, had the new one tested, and it's fine. New fuel filter too. Could my duel tanks have something to do with it? My front tank reads empty even though there's gas in it. Help! I


Without the benefit of doing any testing myself, I'd think the problem may be the ignition switch. Could also be the shutdown relay or a bad connection at the main computer. Crank position sensor could be suspect as well. I don't think its a fuel p ... 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 95 firebird formula LT1 that will sputter and want to die. This will only happen if I drive for about 30 minutes then stop and shut off the car for 15 minutes. Once I start it after that it bogs down, sputters, and tries to die on me. If I can manage to get it on the road it will stop sputtering in about 2 minutes of solid driving and be fine till I stop, let it sit 15 minutes, and then start it again. Any help would be much appreciated.

Car was running fine, then at work, left the lights on. Dead battery, tried to jump and took awhile. Started, but ran like ****, it would idle but when you touch the excelerator it would try to die. Finally got it going but had to keep pumping the gas to keep it started. Once on the road it would run smooth. But then when you let up would try to die. Thought maybe blew a fuse but all were ok, checked for vacuum leaks or anything else that might cause. I'm totally stumped. Any help would be great
