Engine shut down

\015 Driving car uphill. full tank of gas. engine shuts down will not start. no idiot lights came on to warn me. could it be fuel pump, fuel filter or electric\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Sounds like the fuel pump is the most likely suspect. The fule filter could also play a role in preventing the fuel under pressure from reaching the engine going uphill. If you haven't changed the fuel filter recently, change it either way, then you can rule it out if the problem persists.

My 2000 Grand Prix GTP Supercharged was running fine but it shut off with a "check guages" warning. The gusges were fine and the car will start but it shuts off right away. The engine will stay running if it is kept at or near full throttle. As soon as the engine slows, it shuts off. There doesn't seem to be any engine miss and I was able to drive it home by making many restarts and hard accelerations. I did observe (on a long stretch of road) that the car would only go 90MPH.

The engine idles fine if you depress the throttle the engine bogs very bad. if you feather the throttle it will rev to 4000 rpm momentarily then shut down to an idle . the tps sensor was replaced with very little change. the fuel and air filters are new, when you get the engine to come off idle as long as you keep the engine under 3900 rpm it will allow you to make the car move but if you depress the throttle to quickly or to far the engine shuts down to an idle. if you spray a quick shot of fue

2007 kia Rio Engine shuts off intermittently. History: 1 year ago we had an issue with rough engine and power issues (Approx 150k). replaced spark plugs and same issue.

Hi I got a 98 Regal GS SC engine w 64.7k miles. this morning the engine would only start for 2-3 seconds then a sort of "relay engaging sound' could be heard and the engine would shut down. This cycle repeats every time I tried to start it. I would also notice the fuel pump would prime the lines, just when I turn the key to the "on" position (which is normal), but since this engine start problem began this morning, I began noticing it priming the lines for 1-2 seconds AFTER the engine had shut d

I have a 1991 Ford Tempo and after about 20 minutes of driving the engine will shut off and the RPM will drop to zero. In addition the charging system Amp light and Oil light are both illuminated when the engine shuts off. The alternator and battery are brand new so I am confused why the Amp light illuminates. As for the oil I'm certain there is too much in the engine, but I am under the impression that too much oil in the engine is not the entirety of the problem.

Oil consumption my 2002 ford f-150 uses about 1 quart of oil for every 3,000 miles. About 2,000 miles ago, when I would remove the oil fill cap with the engine running, the truck would go to a low idle and eventually just shut off. Now if I remove the oil cap, the engine immediatly just shuts off. I have tried this with the engine cold and hot, does the same thing. I have tried to add engine restore on an oil change but does not help. Any ideas???

Overheating engine 2 weeks ago, the engine cooling fan would stay running after the engine was shut off, we had to pull the 40 amp fuse to shut off the fan. after doing this for 2 days, the fan began to work properly. 1 week later the car overheated. Upon getting the car home, I replaced the temp switch (for the computer) and the temp guage sending unit.. both mounted into the thermostat housing at the left rear of the engine. I then checked the fan, and the fan worked fine on high and low when

I pressure wash the radiator cooling fan of my plymouth neon 1997 model while engine is shut off, while I'm doin the pressure washing the cooling just went ON, so I turn on the engine to retain my battery power for about 30 minutes to see if it will automatically shut off the fan which it never did despite of turning off my engine. Then I resorted to pulling out the fuse to turn off the fan to maintain my battery power. So what do you think is the best solution to resolve this issue of my car. I

I think I might have something else to add to my problems. All this time I've been saying the check engine light comes on when the truck engine shuts down. But instead, it's the battery light that comes on when the engine shuts down. Again, adding to my April 30th question on my F150 by maka2uli. Would this help to hopefully pin point the problem?
