Try replacing the crankshaft position sensor - it's a common problem on the 88's - only about a $30 part

2002 Lancer I was driving the lights and motor shut off once I got a jump it started right back up 5 miles the lights went off the motor started spitting and sputtering shooting sparks out the back


Have the charging system checked for proper operation. If battery is not being charged properly and goes weak the electronic control modules within the vehicle will start shutting down and cause all sorts of drivability issues

I have a 1994 corvette and im having problems with it. They occur when my A/C is on. While A/C is running car shuts down like there is a bad distributer or a bad fuel pump. Sometimes, when I turn my A/C...


First thing I look for in a case like this is the common old vacuum leak.
While the engine is fairly cold and running, take a can of spray carb cleaner and
spray near known vacuum intersects or hose connections.The engine idle should change audibly if a leak is present.
When a vacuum hose gets a bad split or tear,the engine performance goes wacky.
Also look for a loose connection of the air intake hose(large one) or right where the connection is made to the intake.These engines are REALLY touchy where connections are concerned. don-ohio

Fault number 301 cylinder number 1 misfire. This issue just occured today and was wondering if it can be a spark plug since admittedly I have not changed plugs in some time and am definitely overdue.


Yes, it can be the plug but it can be a lot of other things too.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6715318-causes_gasoline_engine_misfires . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

It will start some times and not other and shut when running


Check ASD Relay (Automatic Shut Down) Kills fuel and spark. Computer could be telling it to shut down, but usually Relay is bad. Key Switch could also be bad, get a good manual and a VOM (Volts, Ohms, Milliamps) meter, and make sure you have juice both coming in and going out, in the respective key positions. Jiggle wiring while testing, to check for loose connections
