If you jack up the right side of the car while its running does it die?...........just thinking that maybe the pickup has fallen off of the fuel pump in the gas tank so when the fuel moves to the left side of the tank the end of the pump may not be immersed in fuel.
hope this helps...keep me posted its definitely an interesting problem.....Good luck!

While driving, successive loss of power culminating in the engine dying. Lights still working but engine would not start. After 5 minutes everyhing dead. 1 hour later engine starts and works for less...


Sounds like it could possibly be a bad alternator if all the cables are tight and started out with a good battery. Do you have a battery or red charge light? Or, alternatively, is there an absence of this light when the car ignition is on, but the car has not yet been started?

Good luck on this repair.

A 5 year old vehicle with only 50k miles? A typical vehicle gets driven 20k a year, possible but doesn't sound right. I would look at transmission and Torque converter inside transmission.

Common problems with 92 honda 5 speed


A/C Problem usuallyabout 200,000 miles (specifically high pressure hose leaks and compressor clutch usually within 30,000 miles of the hose going.)
At about 250,000 miles or so the main relay goes usually at about 290,000 Torque convertor in Automatic Transmission starts to slip.. Manual tranny can't say too much there depends on how you drive . replace clutches at every 50K or at 150K depends on driver.The cat and the mufflers usually go at abot 190,000 give or take (depends how much water you drove threw). Lastly fast idle cam valve about every 120,000. As you can see this is a great car to own.

Ford Contour apparently starves for gas, dies.


tell your mechanic to replace the fuel filter. This part is usually less than $10. It should be replaced aout every 50K miles.

Dies when idling, does better with a/c on, but still dies


this is your problem:

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
