1994 lincoln continental randomly dies while driving. It's getting fuel. What else could it be?


Thankfully, mine has never done that....if by 'body control module' you're referring to the electronic 'black box' that monitors various inputs and controls timing/ignition to make the car run; then it seems like you've already covered most of the obvious things that could be at fault, here. If by 'dies'; you mean the car actually stalls out while you're going down the road? Does it immediately restart after it happens, or does it have to sit for awhile, before it will fire up again? Do you lose your digital display (+ radio, fan, etc.) when this happens--or does everything turn off, then it all comes back on--except for the engine? Since it never happens when idling, it could be some kind of intermittent electrical problem--(ground strap coming loose?) caused by the vibration/bounces of driving....I'd look there first.

I just purchased a 2000 GMC Savana 3500 with the 5.7 litter engine with 92000 miles on it. The temp gauge shows that the engine is running between 100 - 160 degrees, seems too cold. The oil pressure gauge...


you probably have your finger on the problem. have oil pressure test .when engine hot minimum 12psi.and change the thermostat.Don't cost much

Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. 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

Code 12 means you are in test mode, code 34 is a problem with the map sensor, and code 35 is a problem with the idle control valve.
But those two codes could show up if you disconnect those sensors or if the engine is having other problems.
In situations where the engine stalls, it is very easy to overlook something or assume a component is working.
Treat it like a no start. Pull a plug wire and watch the spark as the engine dies. Use carb cleaner or starting fluid to boost fuel supply.
You'll have to figure out if it is loosing spark or fuel to proceed.
Things like the coil, the stator in the bottom of the dist, or a relay can be the cause. Even low fuel pressure.

I was driving down the road and all of the sudden it lost power. I pushed the gas and nothing. I pulled to the side of the road and it died. When I try to restart it, it cranks but doesn't turn over. I...


Ignition Control Module is bad. When the dielectric grease used to mount them gets hard,they overheat and cause you to shut down. Really easy to install(about 10 mins.). I had this happen on two Fords. If you let the engine sit and cool down,they will fire up and run till that part gets hot,then itll die on ya. Auto zone sells this part for around 35 bucks.

95 dakota dies when warmed up


yes it can but you may have a coolant temp sensor acting up which causes the computer to open the injectors to much which can also cause this 02 sensor code. when it stalls do u have spark and fuel pressure.
