Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
Would the fuel pressure regulator keep my blazer from stalling when driving on highway and stop lights.
The engine\012and transmission in this cars drive train are fully\012electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train\012Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer\012stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions\012to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and\012MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory,\012to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned\012with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must\012perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the\012problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN\012HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON\012PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

I have a 2000 Ford Windstar LX 3.8 L V6. Engine keeps intermittenly stalling as you come to a stop. P1171 code keeps coming up. ABS and check engine lights come on and off intermittently. Checked fuel pump pressure and that is good. havenb't replaced MAF or any ofhter sendors. What is the next best step to take. Would like to havea wiring diagram to test TPS and MAFS if avilable before just replacing the sensors. My wife and daughter do not drive the car because of the risk factor

325i BMW, 2003 (Automatic) Fuel Pump/Filter or fuel pressure regulator problem? 3 weeks ago car would stall when shifted in Drive mode.

I have a 1999 Audi A4 2.8L - Last month it was stalling at low RPM after initial start idle kicked down. I put in fuel injector cleaner and it fixed the problem. Yesterday it returned and is shaking before it stalls. It stalls again after initial Idle kicks down, so when I stop at lights it will stall most of the time or at dead stops in traffic. If the car keeps moving it will not stall. Car has 170,000 miles mostly highway

My 2004 impala ss keeps stalling out. Not all the time. Usualy after I run the car for a while, turn it off and start driving it will happen. Also mostly when I am driving and have to stop at a light is when it will want to stall. One more thing, sometimes the rpms are jumping all over the place when I am idling, before stalling. I changed the fuel filter, and ran a few rounds of injector cleaner through it. Anybody know what's up?

I have a toyota camry 1997, 4cyl. When I'm driving it idles a bit and pulling a little. When i'm stopped at a light it idles high then shuts off, sometimes it just shuts off without idling.

Hi, you can try cleaning the MAF sensor, but you probably need a new one. Fortunately you can get one for only $70 at autozone. This is cheap compared to other MAF sensors I've seen. \015\012First check the connection on the sensor. If good ... 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix

Keeps stalling Feels like I am running out of gas. First felt like the Rav started to "hick-up", then stalled out as I was coming to a stop. Now seems to happen almost every time I try to come to a stop or take my foot off the accelerator. I have to put in neutral and rev the gas to keep engine running. Engine light is now on since the first stall out. Fuel filter has been replaced and problem still persists. AutoZone site suggests changing the wire set and spark plugs or possibly the fuel pump.

No check engine light on until it stalls out. While driving around town and approaching stop sign/light, sometimes car will stall out. I also notice that my fuel gauge dips down about 1/4 tank and then comes back up slowly within 5-10 seconds. Sometimes when it does this as approaching full stop the fuel gauge will dip and car stalls. I had the o2 sensor, spark plugs and wires and fuel filter replaced. Still does it but not as bad. I have put fuel cleaner in when near empty and put 1/2 tank g
You didn't say how much fuel is in the tank when this happens. Some of these old GM cars will starve for fuel if the tank is near empty and you are braking or stopping with the car facing downhill. It could be rust or scale in the fuel tank clogging ... 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
Engine light is on, engine will stop middle of driving down the road. It will restart, but cranks over longer than normal. Has new cat convertor, 02 sensor and fuel pressure regulator that are about 3 months old

Engine stalls while driving. At first it was happening rarely but now it happens frequently. Engine will restart and run fine for hours-days-weeks then happens again. Guages and lights still work.

I think maybe my TPS is gone in my 1998 venture mini van. My check engine light is on and my van stalls out on acceleration once having already come to a stop and taking off again. I have replaced both crankshaft sensors, the fuel pressure regulator, the Mass airflow sensor. When I first start the van and I rev the van the rpm's never goes past 2. It's like when I try to rev it up it chokes. Please help....
You should really have the van scaned before you put any more parts on it. Autozone will scan it for free. You could spend alot of money just putting parts on it. If you can come up with a code/DTC for your problem then let me know and I will be bett ... 1998 Chevrolet Venture Cargo
Won't start My daughter was driving her 94 camry to work friday when it started to act up. She described it like it had an air bubble in the gas line! She came to a stop light and it stalled. Wouldn't start after that. I've installed new plugs and rotor. Checked fuel pressure, is good at 50lbs. Timing belt is good and timing is right on. Getting spark to plugs yet it won't fire. Not sure what to check next. Car has 161,000 miles on it.

Hello, my airbags blew, have not replaced them yet, however I can not get the jeep to easily start or idle smooth. Once I do get it started by holding the pedal all the way to the floor(like when the fuel pressure regulator is shot) I put the jeep into drive and the engine stalls out and dies. When the truck was idling, I scanned it and it said the asd was on, after the truck stopped running, the scanner said the asd was off. Would replacing the airbags tell the computer on the jeep to not turn

My truck is the two wheel drive with 4.8L V8. The truck usually runs flawlessly and twice recently it loses power on the highway. It stalls if you push the gas but I was able to drive it about 80 miles home (it stalled and conked out four times). Today it started acting up when I went to lunch. It would run but not if I gave it gas, I had to really baby the gas to keep moving. Then it was fine. Until... driving home I stalled out twice on the highway.
