Answers :

It is either a bad sensor or plugged fuel filter. Very possible it is the throttle position sensor or leaky injector. Most likely bad sensor.. If check engine light is on, than surely bad sensor.

I have a 2002 xtype jag. It will just die while I am driving! It will restart, and I have had to throw it into neutral to restart because I am in traffic! Only once, after stalling four times in one drive, did I have some trouble starting it the third and especially the fourth time. But it did start and drove fine. But it is extremely scary to be driving and not know when it's going to die. I am going to check fuses today, brought it to dealer and a mechanic. Dealer was no help whatsoever

I have an Audi 80 1.8 petrol 1989. The car starts from cold with no trouble settling to a normal idle speed. However as you drive for a mile or so and come to slow down the engine dies to a extremely rough and lumpy running - barely above a stall. Pressing the accelorator produces no revs and the engine ''hunts'' firing only on a one or two cylinders. Eventually the car will start again and as long as the revs are kept high it will drive again, although when the revs go lower the engine dies aga

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

2000 chevy s10 runs for a few minutes then dies. Had fuel pump, fuel pump relay and fuel filter replaced at shop but the thing will still not run properly. You have to keep your foot on gas to keep it from dying so the idle has to be above 1500 rpms to stay running. If you let foot off gas it dies. So you have to keep foot on gas pedal and one on brake to drive it. Someone help me I am about to run the thing off a bridge

Bought this used last week, it ran like a bat out of hell until a couple of days ago. First it started sputtering and having issues getting up to speed and then today it just totally bogged down and stopped and then died. After it sits a while you can drive it for short distances at a very very slow speed until it dies once again. Two things that I probably should not of done, one is steam cleaned the engine and tworan it extremely low on fuel, i mean really really low. I'm leaning towards .


Well thanks for being honest about the low fuel and the steam clean.To test the fuel pump you will need to attach a pressure gauge to the fuel line and measure the pressure with the fuel pump running. There is usually a gauge attachment port n ... 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

I have a 2002 hyundai elantra I have replaced the alternator and got a new battery well it ran for one day then while driving it the next day there was a big clunk like something fell out of the motor then the RPM dropped to 0 then it died. Now the battery is dead and it will start if it is jumped it will run for about maybe 2 minutes then the RPM drops and it dies.
