Having problems with your 2001 Dodge Intrepid ?

Having trouble starting, now check engine light on and stalls and sputters

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

Check all the wires and connections on the engine wiring harnesses first. Look for physical damage and heat damage in particular. Clean any dirty plugs you find of any oil or other grime, unplugging them and plugging them back in as needed.
In particular you may also want to check and maybe remove and clean the camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor. Be careful you don't get any dirt into the engine if you do pull them out, although the electical plugs are probably more suspect.

My 2004 Santa Fe had he check engine light come on several times in the past week. It started to run rough, like it was going to stall, then the check engine light came on. I took it to a mechanic. First, the code was for the wires, which were replaced. Later that day, after it was fixed, it started doing the same thing and the check engine light came on again. Then the mechanic said it was for the engine coils, which were both replaced. 2 days later, the car stalled on me and the check engi

I have an 04 Nissan 350z and just changed my spark plugs. I disconnected the fuel line and some of the wiring harness to get to the plugs. After putting it all back together and starting my car the tcl & slip light/ check engine light stay on. The car sputters and stalls. I checked all of the wire connections and tried to bleed any air from the fuel line. What should I do?

I have a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville with 3.8L motor. I have replaced numerous parts on the motor and when I go to start it, it spits and sputters; all the lights that are on in my car go dim, my Check Engine light (which is constantly on) blinks and the car will stall out. I have to go through this multiple times until my car will actually start and stay running. I cannot figure out what the problem is. Any suggestions, please?

1994 Grand Cherokee, 5.2 V8 shuts off when hot. Cool for an hour or 2, starts up ok for a half hour or so, then dies again. No trouble codes except 12 and 55; I pulled fuses to check them, hence the code 12. When it dies, check engine light dies with it- turn key on, no check engine light. Car won't start untill the check engine light works again; after cooling off for 1-3 hours. Also, tachometer goes to zero immediately, as though it's losing the TD signal- coasting, engine still turning, but n
