Answers :

There is a fuel cutoff set by the cars computer that limits the RPM's of the engine to prevent engine damage. If its cutting out below say 5000 rpm, then theres a problem. The check engine light being on steady means one of the sensors detected something the computer doesnt like. Get the car to a good mechanic to scan the light and retrieve the trouble code. That will tell you what the problem is. Some auto parts stores, like Auto Zone, will scan the light for free.

I tried the recommendation of re-setting the inertia switch ... still the same result, though. The fuel cut-off seems to be working like intended, with the key ON and the switch tripped, the 'fuel cut off' light stays on. With the switch pressed in (which is the way I found it), the fuel cut-off light only illuminates when the engine is cranked over. The engine never starts, though. The fuel system seems to pressurize when the key is in the ON position, also.

I have a 1993 Plymouth Voyager. V6 3.0L engine. Sometimes it happens all day long and can sometimes go weeks without happening. I'll be driving the van and what I noticed only in slower speeds the van engine will cut off. All the electrical stays on just the engine cuts off, not slowly just like a light switch off, but it starts right back up again. I put a new fuel filter on it and 2yrs ago a new fuel pump. Could the pump have gone bad already?

My check engine light comes on and my car will not accelerate fast and acts like it wants to cut off and sputters.

2006 Freestar cut out once going down the high way. 45 miles later we stopped for a rest. When we started back up, it took several times before it stayed running, but ran very rough, and would stall if allowed to stay at idle very long. When we got back on the road, it seemed like it was going ok (no indicator lights, engine, fuel, battery... were lit) after about 5 miles we came to a traffic light, and it stalled and would not restart. It will crank over, there is fuel at the injector ba

Several problems. First, when I disconnect the battery cable to do any work, it idles rough when I reconnect the cable and start the engine, cutting off often. It smooths out in about a week. Also it has started skipping some, especially when pulling a hill. It skipped so bad recently that the engine light would flicker, then finally stay on. Then, the seat heater takes spells and comes on when it wants to, often cutting on-then off-then on. On warm days it can drive you nuts! What may be th
