Sure sounds like it in your auto start. the auto stat will do this if it doesnt see the key in the ign switch. look under the dash and find out what brand starter it has.

Check sparks, air filter and air intake.
See if fuel has regular pressure.
The best way to find out what the problem is, is having the car ECU (computer ) scanned, this will return error codes that can indicate the cause for the problem.

My 2001 Tahoe ran fine going to work. When I got off work, I started it up and it ran for 20 seconds then shut off. started again and started to go home. It jerked twice then ran 100 yards then shut off....


Check the crank position sensor. Also it could be as simple as a bad coil or coil wire. It definitely sounds electrical if you hear fuel pump priming. Also check distributor cap and rotor. Hope this helps

Car turns on shuts off 3 minutes later


If you mean the check engine light is on when the engine is running, I would start there and have the computer scanned for trouble codes.
Without knowing what is shutting down it will be tough to troubleshoot.
Could be a relay or coil or any number of other things.
If there are no codes in the computer, I would look for a failing relay. A sensor should set a code.

Rover 75 diesel just fitted new fuel pump now it cuts out put starts back up easy but does the same thing 15 min later


check the fuel pump relay in fuse and relay box. it may be shutting down when it gets hot, replace relay or exchange it for another of the same size to see if thats the problem. also you may have a bad camshaft sensor. good-day !

On some models, the Engine Control unit has a power supply relay. These relays some times get internal dry solder points. After driving for some time the the solder will get hot and separate. When it cools down it makes contact again. You will have to replace this relay or open it up and re- solder the solder joints. The relay is usually located on the main relay station in position 3. the relay station is located behind the right dash panel.[right hand drive vehicles]. You may need to refer to a manual for your specific model to find the exact location of the relay.

Intermitant shut down will run less than 1 min


If you have a solder iron you can open up the relay can and re-solder the relay on the pcb. Real common for there to be cracked foils at relay.

sounds like your fuel pump is going out. One thought might be that the fuel filter is causing enough resistance to over heat the pump. I would check the fule pressure to determine a free flow of fuel.
