    car runs for 15 to 30 secs then stalls, changed throttle body & calibrated, battery as well. Fuel pump is running as well, have checked sensors too. Mechanic working on wiring to see if that is issue. Week later not fixed and seems to be no light at end of tunnel. Any suggestions would be great

I'm had a similar problem with my Caravan this past October. Ask your mechanic to check the fuel pump and oxygen sensor. There was a recall on Airtex fuel pumps in 24,000 2000 Caravans in 2006, so might want to see if it was one of the affected pumps and it can be replaced for free. Good luck!

Steering goes from easier to stiff and back to easy when going from highway speed to off ramp. This hard steering can last from 15 seconds to 1 minute, any ideas?

The hassle has to be with the power steering pump..Check to make sure that the fluid level is up to spec and there are no leaks in the hoses.. If all looks good then the pump has an intermittent condition responsible for issue. U might want to wait till it goes completely or replace it.

Fortunately when a car is in motion the absence of of the assist is no big deal/ it helps with parking and other slow maneuvering.

Mazda b2200 when i hit breaks the engine shuts off

my wild guess, you are driving car? not parked
eg: im driving along, i see a stop sign and slow and as i slow to
a stop , the engine stalls? bingo:?
but, i can save the stall with a fast right foot.
real easy save?, hard save? or IMPOSSIBLE?

if easy save tad hard, the EGR valve just stuck open,
clean the EGR main valve.
if impossible , say so.

super easy save might be , stuck ISC. (idle speed contoller) same
fix, clean it. in fact at 50k we clean both, per the service schedules.
all cars .

My 1998 dodge caravan stalls (intermittently) when i'm slowing down to turn a corner or in a parking space when i'm driving quite slowly I have replaced the fuel filter and it didn't help Once it's stalled...

My 98 plymouth grand voyager was having same problem changed several sensors before finding a very dirty crankshaft position sensor. After removing and cleaning my problem has disappeared. Youtube has a video on replacing this sensor. Careful when reinstalling. Position is critical to far in and hits flywheel. too far out and will not start.

RPM drops and stalls

Check Engine Light is on. Pops O2 sensor but car is acting funny.

This sounds like the loss of electrical power because of the lights.Any chance of a broken engine/transmission mount allowing to much movement and breaking a connection? Along this same line, look for a vacuum leak that occurs while in gear. If the o2 sensor code is for a lean condition a vacuum leak could case it and the drivability condition /stalling you are getting. Hope this helps and rate me please!!

1996 Camry 100 km stalling

You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
