Hi there my mazda etude 160i wont start at normal operating temp must leave for few minutes then will start again


When you shut off a fully warmed up engine, the temp rises as all water circulation has stopped. This extra high temp can cause electronic parts to fail which then work again as they cool. Somewhat rare, but possible coil/module or crank/cam sensor issue. Also may have leaky injectors which bleed down when you stop and flood the engine. Sitting lets excess fuel evap and then will start again. Just my thoughts.

I have a 1995 chevy lumina ls . i was driving down the road and came to a stop sign. it stalled out , this done it several times. then a few days later i went to go start it and it wouldnt start, i moved...


You may have a defective neutral safety switch. The switch is located on the outside if the transmission case and it is where the cable connects from the shooter inside the car. This covers the no start, the stall is likely due to a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve.

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. 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.
Below is a picture of the switch I mentioned.

Starts rough then when shut off take time to start again and if i show down she start to stall


You have to look at vehicle data & do some testing.

You can't ask someone what anything is, on any product,
a guess isn't how things are figured out.

You could have a worn out fuel pump or a long over due
timing belt issue

My f350 just shut down, i suspected fuel filters and changed them, ran for maybe 5 minites and shut down again , will not start again? anyone had any trouble like this?


if light is on, have it scanned to find problem code. a bad crank sensor will cause this. it controls the timing of the crankshaft. the engine may start, but cut out in a few seconds or minutes if it starts at all! have a good one!! car may stall when stopped.

Starting problem after engines warm smell gas


I had the same problem. It may start to or already is stalling as you slow down or stop. I changed my fuel pressure switch located right on the fuel rail on top of the motor. It's about $80.

Stalling


Possibly faulty ignition module is the problem, stalls when engine is hot when you sit for a while it cools off and runs again until it heats up again, those are usually the symptoms of a bad ignition module and after a while it may give out all together and not run at all, usually if the module is at fault it shuts down the fuel pump so the engine don't load up with fuel, do to when engine continuously cranks over the injectors never stop squirting fuel and flood the engine do to lack of spark which is produced by the module, this could possibly be your problem.
