Today the power steering on my car gave out then the battery died. I bought a new battery and the car started right up. When I went for a test drive, the power steering still wasn't working and then the car died after driving it. I got it to start up again, but whenever I turned on the lights, the car started dying again. What do I need to replace? I was thinking it might be the serpentine belt.

Well when I drive the car for a bit, and it is warmed up when I start to decelerate coming to a stop the car will **** and when I come to a complete stop it will start jerking and then die.

When i start the car it idles ruff and dies sometimes the check engine light is on. It dies while trying to drive when you let off the throttle. I have an 89 Buick lesabre. It usually takes my car anywhere from 3-10 tries before starting. Once it does start, it sputters, and sometimes dies if I don't hit the gas pedal. It's even died while driving. It barely wants to take off when I press the gas, it takes about 30 seconds to get to 40 mph, and now it doesn't want to go any faster.

I have a vw bora 2002 petrol ... my car just dies while am driving it. and when i try to start it again it wont . but if i wait for 10 mins the car would start again but dies back again after a while. it just dies if i was driving it or if it was idle. and it doesnt matter if it was hot or cold, i thought it a was a fuel pump so i replaced it and the fuel filter as well but nothing happened !!!!


This looks very like either the crank sensor or cam sensor is faulty. The are OK when cold but as they warm up everything expands just that little bit and if there is a break in the wiring inside them then a gap opens up and it dies. When it cools ... 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

I have an 1999 Buick LeSabre. When the weather is cold outside, right around 15 degrees, the car begins to have issues, but the issues have just started within the past week and a half. I turn the car on, and put it into reverse, or drive, and it begins to die. I drive maybe 250 feet before the car dies on me. I wait a few moments, and turn it on again. This time, it starts, and all the lights on the display start to flash, and there is an unusual clicking noise underneath the dashboard on the p

Car misses at least a few times when I drive it and DIES sometimes while I'm driving. This is EXTREMELY dangerous as the car is an automatic and has to be put into park or neutral to try and restart. NOT GOOD when on a highway, etc. This has been happening since I owned the car for the last six months. Only had 50,000 miles when I got it and all appears to be in good shape. Even mechanics have looked it over and can't find anything wrong. Now my "check engine" light is on. When it died while dri

1998 Buick LeSabre My Buick drives well - but recently without warning it just died while I was driving. The RMP's and Speedometer dropped - I had not realized the car died until the wheel was hard to turn. The lights in the dash board remained on. With some "rest" - the car will start again but only for short moments, until it will die again. Its has the starter box changed and an oil switch - to no avail - same problem. I'm thinking weak alternator? or battery problems?

I just replaced the ECU with a used one. The car started fine and was able to drive it around. I then heard clicking sounds coming from where the ECU is located. The car then died. It started fine right away but the clicking came back and died again. I waited a few hours and was able to drive it home. There is another electrical part near the ECU. Is this related? The car is a 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse ES


Rule number one, never buy a used ECU. Always purchase new if possible. If the ECU is used, it is good practice to remove the cover and, inspect the circuitry inside the ECU housing for discolorations(burn marks) on the board and, welded solder point ... Mitsubishi Eclipse

Please help. I have a 96 toyota camry le that keeps dying on me. At first the battery light came on and then shortly after the car died.

When the battery light stays on for an extended period of time, the car eventually dies on me while I?m driving it. We took the new alternator out and had it
