Check the connections at the battery. Your symptom is a pretty food example of what happens if the connections are severely corroded or loose.

What is happening is there is a good enough connection to supply a small current load to the vehicle. When you try to start it there is a much larger load on the connection and they are not good enough to supply the load needed. the connection heats up, goes open, and there is no power until the connection cools and closes.

Hope that helps.

Why does my car try to die when i drive down the road?


Try to check the ignition coil, when you driving it become hot then the car dies end won't start. After awhile when it's cold, then it will start. Replace the ignition coil.
I hope it solves the problem

I have a problem with my 2004 impala 3.8 V6 I will drive down the road and it will randomly die and won't start back up. It will turn over and everything but won't start. But if you let it


Possibly a crankshaft position sensor had the same problem with one of my former vehicles. Be careful buying a new one though it is an electronic part and it is not returnable at most part stores. That is what it sounds like to me though.

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch .

Truck will not start with key, will start by jumping silinode.


Took to Ford shop and had them run test and it ended up being burnt up wiring in the C100 plug connector. And the reason it would die after running for awhile was because of three wires that were burnt up also on the fuel pump. Runs just fine now. Thanks.

Ignition coil or Ignition control module I would look towards the ignition control module.I had a 91 cavelier do the samething exact same and i tried everything to try and fix it,it turned out that it was the ignition control module. There will be 2 coils mounted onto that plate.It ran good till it warmed up,once warmed up it would stall and spitt and sputter,if left for awhile would start up and go good untill it warmed back up.Once the module would get warm it would quit working untill it cooled down
