Question about 1998 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Dies after it starts up

It has no problem starting but a problem staying on sometimes. Yesterday it ran fine and then I shut it off for a few minutes. Then , it would start but didnt stay running.I tried to start it about 6 more times and it would die after it started. Finally got it running.SOmetimes there is no problem at all and it runs fine. Today I was driving it and slowed down to make a turn and it shut off without any warning. It immediately started up again. COuld this be anything to do with the ignition module? If so, do I have to replace the whole computer? Is it built in the computer? Could it have anything to do with a fuel problem ?

I have a 99 saturn sl1 i started my car up yesterday for work let it run a couple of minutes do to the cool weather it ran fine but died on me about 10 minutes into my drive not it wants to start but


I would check fuel pressure first.
Could be low fuel pressure due to a faulty pump or dirty fuel filter.
Was the check engine light on when the engine was running ?

Check your fuel pressure, there are Relays to check. Sometimes the pump is so weak that it delivers enough to start the engine and can not keep up. It is also built to shut down the fuel if the engine dies.

When you turn the key, you should hear the fuel pump run. As for the smoke, with the automatic shut-offs occurring, there is moisture and incomplete combustion gases leaving the tailpipe.

sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery. with vehicle running take measure the voltage of the battery f it is higher then 13volts it is charging. if you do not have a volt meter remove the ground cable while the vehicle is running and the vehicle should stay running.
