SOURCE: Car "bucks" and sometimes engine dies-intermitently

I posted the original problem...after a few different tries, we discovered that it was the ECM (the main computer). Once replaced, the car has not had a problem since!

SOURCE: car dies will driveing down road will not start sometime

I would say with the multiple issue the computer on the car is starting to go. You need to have the vehicle checked out by your local mechanic.

Why does my 93 Honda Accord run fine and then dies going down the road and will start again and die again?


There is a black fuel relay way up under the top left driver side dash that breaks its main wire solder connections on the circuit board under over-heat conditions. Resolder that relay. Starting fluid will show that you have lost fuel delivery under no start conditions. You can use the breather hose from the valve cover for this test.

Why did the motor die while I was driving down the road when I turned on the a/c and fan?


If the engine overheated then the antifreeze may be getting into the engine, indicating a cracked head or block. check for water in oil via dipstick. .

No engine light on? Sounds to me like the bumpy road may be knocking something loose. It would help to know if you have fuel pressure when the problem arises.

The engine on my 2000 MPV cuts out and dies when I press the accelerator. After it sits for an hour or so, I can travel for 20 min. or so before the problem starts again. HELP!


if its been a while change the fuel filter and then have the fuel pressure and volume checked.these symptoms are very common for a fuel pump problem.

Any time there is a code that says "too lean" then that means there is not enough fuel that is going into the cylinder to make it combust. This is very dangerous to the engine! There are a few things that cause this. (1) The fuel injectors are clogged and need to be cleaned or replaced. (2) the fuel pump is starting to die and needs to be replaced. The best thing to do is get fuel injection cleaner and put it in the gas tank when you fill up and see if that helps. If it still persists then replacing the injectors would be the best way to go next. I hope this gives you a better idea what to do!

Have a good one!

My Samurai wont start . It is getting gas to the carb and spark to the plugs. Was driving down the road and just died. Getting power everywhere. Starter turns but the motor just wont fire up.


I had a similar issue with my '86....driving home, made a left turn, and engine shut down. Coasted to a stop, and had a look under the hood. Cranked over fine, had gas, spark, but no go! After a tow home, and more in-depth investigating, turned out that the timing belt had broken! The older engine has no interference between valves and pistons, so installing a new belt got 'er going again for about $40. You can look down though the oil fill port or loosen the upper screws on the belt cover to confirm that the valves are/are not moving when the engine cranks.

Okay well when im driving down the road


sounds like the alternator is going bad. I had the same problem in a 94' Ford Probe. I replaced the alternator and it ran perfect. Hope this helps

When engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating


I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.
