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

I have 89 accord 6 cyln 3.0 vtec it just stops running wait a few min.then it will usually start its stops running about every 5 miles


this is going to be a bad ignition coil or bad distributor, i would replace the coil first but if the coil is built inside the distributor then replace the whiole unit but if its outside the dist then try replacing the coil first, then if it does the same thing then replace the distributor. this problem is very common with hondas, the internal modules heat up and die and then when they cool down it runs again ,hope this helps good day,

Might be fuel pump that cuts from sending fuel to the engine. But the check engine light should give you a Code when its on then this will help locate the problem. Good luck

1996 Ford Explorer XLT V6 - will start but stalls after 5 mins.


This can be cause by many things, such as a fuel pump going bad / or is bad, fuel injectors need cleaned / replaced, fuel filter dirty just to name a few. Could also have a vapor lock where the fuel line is running to close to a heat source like the manifold or engine and the heat creates a vacum in the fuel line stopping the flow of fuel. Best bet have a garage repair shop look at it. To many hit and miss causes.
