You might want to replace the crank sensor on the bell housing.

What would cause my car to cut off while driving?


Sounds like a power relay or breaker that is getting weak. Over time electrical components break down from heat. Without having a schematic cant tell you where to look!

Hi..my kia avella rpm reaches for about 1200 rpm when I start up in the morning and gradually decreases to about 600 rpm.but it takes 10 mins bfore the rpm goes down.is this normal?m And my engine loses...


Yes, that is normal operation for an engine. It needs to run at higher idle when cold and the computer does that through the temp sender. Make sure it's not excessive due to any vacuum leaks. This and the AC power loss would be exaggerated if the engine is not running correctly.

1986 Toyota 4wd pickup: problem starting


in my experience alot of times what happens when ignition systems get hot from running for a period of time the ignition coil breaks down and weakens when old and worn out then let it cool down for awhile then starts right back up. so look into checking into the coil break down for loss of spark

Loss of power til safe mode. cleaned all harnesses, disconnected and reconnected battery after 5-6 mins. car drove better than ever for 5 mins then started to die. it is 1600 over service


Eh , We have a S400L CDI . It won't go out of Safe-Mode (Can't get more then 3000 RPM and the engine start's making a strange sound) . On the dashboard display it say somthing with Triptron Problems, We have connected it to a Engine test and nothing seems to be wrong . It might be the Radar if you have one on the car.

check if you have a spark when engine dies. if not, check the rpm sensor or ignition coil. both have the simptoms like you describe.

Car shuts off while driving


if car shuts off while driving it could be a bad crank sensor. a bad crank sensor will shut car off while driving, then it will not start for about 10 minutes, when it starts it runs fine until it goofs up again. the popping could be the sensor for it controls timing along with the cam sensor.

Sluggish loss of power and popping noises from engine


Clean the distributer cap in the inside, it has water in it thus causing all the noises and the back fire.
