Just Quit Running?

1997 Esteem. My everyday driver has 142,000 miles. I was driving and it just quit running. I cannot get it started again. It just turns over. I checked to see if the cams were spinning, they did so I don't beleive it is the timming belt. I checked to see if it was getting a spark and it is NOT. I pulled the plug wire and there was no spark jump when turning the engine over. Does anyone have any expierience with this kind of a problem. I checked the fuse boxes and they all seem ok. Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks in advance.

First you need to figure out WHY it stopped running. Was it no fuel? no ignition spark? A tune will not make a engine quit. Have the comp codes read at an auto store, its free.

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....


Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

Goes 5 miles and dies


Does it start right back up?if it does does it run another five miles. Does the car seem to be too hot? Is the check engine light on with the engine running? If the lights on get the codes read and follow their lead. over heating is in the five mile range as is the fuel tank not getting air in to let the fuel flow out. The exhaust can be stopped up but if it does restart after quitting it'll runn only a short time before it quits again. Driving the car harder will make it quit sooner as will warmer weather.

Car Runs and Loses Power and Quits Running


Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!

Clean the battery cables. Test the battery.
If the voltage is low, the car won't run right.
Computer needs 12-14 volts.

98 4Runner w/ 3.4L 4X4. Was sitting at a stop light and it just quit. It has 142,000 miles on it. All maintenance is performed by self. Restarted the vehicle and it stopped again. Tried restrating and it...


Check the Fuel filter, And Also Check the Fuel Pressure for what your 4 Runner calls for, Not to mention Did you Buy Cheap gas for a Gas station that you Normally Dont use? Might have Watered down gas..

A Stupid But Sometime working Item is to Tap the Fuel Filter a few times with the back of a Screw driver to knock the "Dirt" in the Filter around and see if it start as normal,

If So Replace the Filter, But at 142,000 your about Due for a Fuel Pump..
