It is more likely the crankshaft position sensor.

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

On my 1995 chevy caprice the battery is new altenator good replaced fuel filter and spark plugs and wires, sometimes it starts some times it dont and now it will shut off sometimes when i put it in...


Sort of indicates the electrical distribution needs attention. Good that you replaced the battery and alternator but you still have an issue with some power loss, like wiggling wires restores connectivity. Start at the battery, use a wire brush, and some water mixed with baking soda if you see any green or powdery corrosion to dip your battery cable ends in. Usually the wire brush cleans well enough, you want all connections shiny metal to metal contact. Follow both cables and the splices or pigtails to where they connect, like that alternate positive post. The more you can remove, clean, and retighten all the connections you can, the more likely you wont have such gremlins reappear.

Check the battery and the Alternator. Sometimes with these Saabs, when the alternator or the battery start to go bad, you will have many different symptoms all to do with just one issue. You can remove the battery and the alternator, take it to a parts store and they do free testing on those and they can tell you if either is bad or not. The Alternator needs to be out of the vehicle to be tested.

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

Driving and the car shuts off automatically


Hondas have problem with ignitor in distributor that overheats and shuts off spark momentarily. then car will restart and shut off some time later.

Wouldn't hurt to change wires anyway if old, especially if new plugs were installed. Get the most out of gas mileage that way!!!!!!!!
