My 2001 automatic Toyota Tacoma dies when I put it in reverse or drive. My truck has been running well until today. When I was driving it the tranny felt funny. It was almost like I was in a higher gear than I should have been becuase the truck was sluggish when I accelerated. When I got up to speed it would shift very hard into the next gear. I pulled off the road and came to a stop and the truck died. I restarted it and put it into drive and it automatically dies. put it in neutral and pushed

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. I was driving it and suddenly it died. It seemed as if it ran out of fuel but it was just filled a day before. The truck was running fine before this happened so I am not sure whats wrong. Maybe the fuel pump went? What could have went wrong?


Does the engine turn over normal, dragging, or a fast spin? You could have a bad crank shaft position sensor. If this goes out, the sensor can't reference where the crank is which will cause the engine to shut down. The fuel pump could have went out. ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I have a 1994 Dodge Dakota Sport V8 with 300,000 miles. Three months ago, the truck died (i.e., there was no power to the motor, but the lights and horn worked) while I was driving 75 mph on an interstate. I pulled over, waited 30 minutes, and the truck restarted. I drove for another 20 minutes, and it died again - this time, after several failed attempts (i.e., the engine would turn over, but would not fire), I had the truck towed to a mechanic. The next day, he replaced three parts: (1) th

I drove my 1999 Silverado (4.3L V6) to Bristol and back to Knoxville. When I pulled into my road, I shut off the truck to let the family in the house. When I tried to restart the engine, it would only run for a few seconds, then die. If I started it again immediately, it would not start. If it set for a bit, it would crank and run for a few seconds and then die. After setting all night it started and I backed the truck into the driveway. Now it will not start at all. Any ideas?

I have a 2001 cheverolet 1500 HD 4wd with a 6.0 engine. I have replaced the starter 4 times within the last 12 months. 3 of the starters were rebuilt from a parts house and 1 was a rebuilt from a cheverolet dealer. The truck has 190,000 miles on it. It seems that every now and then, driving down the road, the truck makes a noise that sounds like the solenoid is trying to engage the starter drive but not far enough that the starter gear is trying to engage. Then it will stop making the noise. But
