Sounds like your station got a little low on fuel and their transfer pump blew out their filter element (in the pump). So you ended up with the crud. Recommend you get about 3 new filters and be ready to swap them out when your truck dies. On the legal side, unless the station manager is really nice the best you can hope for is a new tank full. Show him/her the filter! Maybe he'll be happy you let him know he needs to do filters on his pumps.

Something electronic is overheating , transistor , . the engine computer , ignition module . crankshaft position sensor. Also check PCM power relay . losing power . Check for spark , fuel pressure when it stops running , see what is missing .

2002 Free Lander stalls out after starting.


It sounds like you have water in your tank and/or bad gas. There are a few Chemicals that can help to remove it.... Dry Heet is one of them, but there are others. I would try to drain as much as you can first, as it seems to be floating on top of the gas. Then add the fuel cleaner. This should help. I would also replace the fuel filter if you cannot clean it out.

Switch gas Stations....
Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

Failure to start


Check the Fuel Filter and pump. It sounds like you have an over heat problem in the fuel pump unit or air in the fuel line that is causing vapor lock. This can happen when you let the gas level get below 1/4 tank depending on the temperatures in your area.

2001 Chrysler Concorde LXI randomly stalling while slowly dow to stop or turn. Will usually crank back. This car will sit and idle for ever, but when you drive it for 10-15 minutes and slow down to stop or...


One suggestion:
Speed sensor failure.

Info:
Some of the classic symptoms, stalling at dead stops. failure to auto lock doors. poor fuel economy. Failure to go to overdrive.


Recommendation:
Go to your local parts store and run the failure codes.

Shop notes:
Your ECU thinks that the engine is running with out moving, During slow down the engine steps down the idle to match ground speed and as a result the engine will not stall. At present it goes directly to idle and stalls due to drag on motor.
Hope this tip helps.

Stalling. starts 15 minutes later. runs good for a week.


O.M.G. THE BATTERY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 80-95 BUCKS. AND THE TERMINAL IS ABOUT 5 BUCKS TO BUY. TAKE THE CAR TO AN AUTO PARTS STORE THAT CHECKS THE ENGINE CODES FOR FREE.......MAKE SURE THAT THEY CAN CHECK FOR PENDING CODES AS WELL. IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE A CRANK SENSOR. OH AND BY THE WAY, MOST AUTO PARTS STORES WILL INSTALL A BATTERY THAT YOU PURCHASE AT THEIR STORE FOR FREEEEEEEEEEEEE.!!!!!!!!!!!!..... PLEASE FIND A BETTER MECHANIC. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED, CAUSE I AM REALLY CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT YOU FIND.
