Engine cuts out while running

While the car is running, the engine will cut out. The car does not make any noises when it stalls out.

    Had coils replaced a few weeks ago. Car cranks, but cuts out immediately when starting. Takes many tries to get started.



    Yesterday, I stalled while driving -- no sound -- engine just cut out.

The problem is your ignition switch. You have to have it changed. If you start your car, dont let the key come completely back, just kind of hold it forward a little; not in the start position but not letting the key completely return to the on position, you will see the car stays running. If you let go of the key and it turns off, your problem is bad and you should not drive it. If it stays on, it still is dangerous to drive, but you should drive it somewhere were it can be replaced.

SOURCE: engine stalls

I would start by checking your IAC (idle air control) valve. It is usually located within or near the throttle body. The inpection procedure varies across vehicle makes and years, I would consult a Chilton's (or similar) repair manual for the exact procedure. If such a book is unavailable, you can remove the IAC and check for excess buildup of carbon or other debris. Let me know what you find!

Service start system light came on while driving.....was preceded by a popping noise.....the radio cut off as well....what is wrong....what is the fix?


did the engine stall, stall is 0 RPM.
at all stalls, The CEL glows, same as 1st key , CEL glows
this only means the ECU has power. nothing more,
CEL on running, means DTC ERRORS.
what engine is it? in usa, see under hood sticker (look up) and bingo
engine option.
2.4 L I4? ,has a cam chain ,not a belt.,,good. when working on any car with engine problems,first ID the engine

150K?

Light Vibration and Humming sound in cabin


no posts on this old post. but no year, so .... as an example
to others posting, NO year?, NO answers.
but... here you go.
NOISE MOVING, ONLY !: (dangerous tests)
NO noise , in neutral, guning throttle like mad man.
or doing same in drive, all brakes set, wheels chocked,
DO the FSM A/T trannny Stall test. 5seconds max !, at 0MPH this puts full load on most the parts, MAKE NOISE NOW?
moving.....
cutting the engine , depends? in neutral? or coasting in gear.
risk 2, accidentally hitting park doing the test.
risk1:
selecting neutral and cutting the key (danger if the steering locks ) do so only off road, and no people about, no turns., no cliffs, no trees, no rocks. (flat desert or parking lot, at early hours..etc.)
Safety first.....
"and it goes off."<<< meaning the noise stops? key off?
btw:
the wheel bearing are under full load, now.
in turns the wheel bearing are under more load (huge in fact)
and the CVs run all the time.
but, if goes off means. no sound , it can be. (sure not wheel bearings)
1: exhaust parts, rattling. (running)
2: engine noise. (lots of possible) , but see test above.
3: A/T trans noise (its A/T right?) bad front, A/T pump? or TC?
or 150 other vastly complex A/T parts. bad.
when coasting , the CV do turn all the rear planetary gears ( and axle gears)
so they are not bad, as the quiet sound ending , proves.

keep in mind most parts, under torque love to make noise.
so cutting the engine, cuts most that torque, and hides the bad parts, with silence.

i use and remote electronic ear to find moving noise.
electronic stethoscope.
it has small microphones that clamp to suspected parts.
this removes most the danger in testing.

good luck finding it, if it still makes noise.

My nissan sentra 1987 stops, stalls and cuts off engine


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

What's your problem?I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that runs great when driving but as soon as I stop and sit a minute it cuts off. I have noticed the car start stalling a little before it cuts off. Cou


Generally speaking, the common reasons for stalling are a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake thru the throttle body.
Those two issues would be checked first.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

First start of the day, engine fires up and runs well then stalls


This is a tough one to solve without hearing it myself. There are several things which will make noise, its the stalling that matters. I will give you 4 that can stall a car and make noise.
1.Traction control cutting off airflow to engine.
2.Automatic ride control pump pulling down alternator.
3.A/C pump locking up.
4.Bad Alternator
5.Bad fan clutch or water pump

You should go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan of your cars computer.
