You could have a spark plug wire off or bad plug wires shorting to the head. There could be a shorted cable/wire to your alternator. The easiest way to check for shorts is to disconnect your positive or negative battery cable. Make sure your ignit ... 1993 Dodge Shadow

Yesterday it ran ok until it warmed up then died, then it would start and die right away unless it was kept revved up. Today when I just tried it I had to pump it and it would die right away an

1995 LeSabre - Starts and runs fine, but engine cuts off without warning. First time, 5mph in a crowded school commute traffic. Put in park, and started right away. Second time, after turning onto drop-off circle at school, car died again. Put in park, did not start for almost 5 minutes. Third time, waited at red light to turn, and as soon as I started turning right, car died, mid-intersection. Put in park, started after 2 minutes. Scary stuff!

By what your stating, that it starts and dies every time, It seems to be fuel related. You need to perform a fuel pressure check. You will need a pressure tester, one that would at least be able to read pressure to a maximum of 150 lbs of pressure. ... 2002 Chevrolet Silverado

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 5.2L engine. Truck stalls when my foot is off the gas once engine temp is about 140 (it starts cold, then dies while idling if I try to let it warm up) Once truck is at 200 temp it runs fine, no stalls, no dying. When it dies, the oil light comes on and it will not start right away, but will after a few minutes. Usually starts and dies a couple times before I can drive it by holding accelerator and brake at the same time. Have done Seafoam cleaner in gas, replaced throttl

I gave a 1998 chrysler concorde with 247000 miles that starts and then dies. Sometimes it will start and run just fine, but if I shut it off and attempt to turn it back on right away it'll die and I know it's going to die because the RPM gauge doesn't read. But if I wait about 10 seconds then it turns on and runs just fine. But then the next day, it doesn't want to start it'll turn over but won't start and after several attempts, it won't even turn over anymore. I've replaced the crank sensor an

My 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix just started acting up. It started with the RPM gauge going to 0 while driving, then the "off Trac" light comes on. Now it sometimes won't start, it will crank, but not turn over. last night it wouldn't start right away, then it did, but as I got almost home, it just shut off on me while driving. Has anyone ever exerienced this before. Now it doesnt start like it used to. It will start right up but then turn off again.

I AM RESTORING A T020 MF. I REPLACED ALL WIRING AND IGNITION SYSTEM AND REBUILT THE CARBURATOR, AND ADJUSTED IT TO SPECS. I GOT IT TO START RIGHT AWAY AND IT SOUNDS GREAT. HOWEVER, IT WILL ONLY RUN FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS THEN IT DIES. WHEN I GO TO START AGAIN WITHOUT WAITING MUCH IT STARTS THEN DIES WITHIN 5 SECONDS, IF I WAIT A LITTLE LONGER IT RUNS FOR THE 30 SECONDS THEN DIES. IS THIS A GAS PROBLEM OR A ELECTRICAL PROBLEM?

I have an 88 cutlas cierra. the fuel pump went. I replaced it and it started right away, and was able to drive it 30 some miles on the highway. Stopped at a light and went to go and it died. It now has a really hard time starting, with a little backfire through the air cleaner. I have to jump start it as battery real low. It will idle for about 5 minutes and die again or die when i put it in drive.


Sounds like a plugged fuel filter. You might have dislogged some "crud" when removing the lines, etc... Can't be 100% sure without doing a test on the fuel system. \015\012Good Luck. ... 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

My 2002 cadillac keeps turning off while im driving. i thought it might be my sound system but i took it off and it still keeps turning off. most of the time it starts right away after it dies on me i just give it 5 to 10 seconds and it will start. sometimes it takes a long time for it to start but it will start after 30 minutes. when it dies on me it just shows the lil battery symbol on the display. also the battery read 14.2 volts ok, sometimes it goes down to 12.5 volts ok. battery terminals


Really is the battery symbol in the display, is not the "check engine" symbol?- Possibly the Oxygen sensor needs replacing as the sympton you describe is usually what happens when the O2 sensor malfunctions\015\012- Had the Oxygen ( ... 2002 Cadillac Deville
