The slip light keeps coming on while I drive and then goes off temporarily. Also it trembles sometimes when I am in first gear when I step on the gas or the break, but once it goes into second it is fine. Also when I turn my car on the first time of the day it does not want to accelarate at all. If I press the gas at all it starts trembeling. Once I come to a complete stop it's fine though and drives great. I thought it might be the air filter but I changed that, and it stopped for a while, but

1990 acura legend dies after driving for a while when it is idling or slowing down for a turn or stop. Sometimes when I go to a store and I have had a lengthy drive it is hard to start and then will keep dieing when I try to back out or go forward. I already changed the idle control valve and the fuel filter. We have also tried to adjust it and the same thing still happens. It seems like when i first drive it there is no dieing but after it has been driven awhile it starts acting up.

My daughters Infiniti's engine dies sometimes when coming to a stop sign or stop light. I have replaced the MAP sensor and changed the air breather. It starts back up with no problem.

My car sometimes stalls after being stopped at a light or stop sign. When I try and accelerate afetr being stopped, it will sometimes sputter and die. I then have to put it in park and restart.

2003 Hyundai Elantra I was speaking one of my friends and I mentioned to him that my car sometimes makes backfiring noises when proceeding thru a red light and at stop signs. Sometimes it only happens at certain times of the day. Any reason for that.

2001 Honda Passport, Engine light was on. Also acts like it wants to stop the first time I start it each day and has stopped on me a few times before I put in drive or reverse. EGR valve, ports, and throttle body cleaned which got the engine light off. coolant sensor changed but it's still dying when i start it unless i rev the engine for about 30 second.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic;165,000 miles. Check engine light comes on sporadically. Been told catalytic converter is trashed. Sometimes starts great; sometimes hard start. "Belches/burps/chugs" -- when idling (red light, stop sign, drive-up at bank) feels like it wants to 'go' and makes that sound like if I took my foot off the brake it would **** forward. Also rear end continues to make strange noises after engine is shut down.


Did you know Jeep did a recall and paid for replacement of catalytic converters on 1996 models (don't know about any others) - they reimbursed me for work done, up to a point - hope this helps! ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

My 2005 nissan altima 2.5 S engine get off sometimes while we are driving. If we stop at signal the engine dies and needs couple of attempt till it starts again. As the rpm decreases the car gets heavy and I can feel that the engine is about to stop. As the engine stops the wheels are locked and its really difficult to maneuver the car. I recently changed fuel pump. The board has a service engine light on. I appreciate your help.


You should stop by your local Auto Parts store and see if they can check your service engine light with a code scanner. Some places do it for free. This could point you to a better direction. ... 2005 Nissan Altima

2000 Ford Ranger V6 4.0 will often chug or stutter while driving. It used to dies at stop signs and red lights constantly, but the stuttering while driving only began after 2 O2 sensors were replaced. We replaced the fuel filter, and a new fuel pump was installed last year. This mainly occurs about 2000 rpm, and it has a lot of chugging/ failure to accelerate normally at about 50mph. Some days, especially in wet weather, it drives dramatically worse, but for weeks sometimes you will have no prob

Not sure what the problem is exactly. Sometimes it will start sometimes it wont. Seems like it doesnt want to start when I have to start and stop it frequently for short stops. Like when I go to the gas station then grocery store, when I come back out to start it, it wont. I have to wait about an hour or so and then it will start again. Also, when I come to a sudden stop sometimes it just dies. And, sometimes but less frequently when I am right in the middle of driving, it just dies also, I loos
