Engine starts then die when idling, changed fuel pump and also magnets (COILS)


I had the exact same problem with my 2003 Galant. The above solutions may be correct but try some other things first.
1) start car and with engine idling turn on the AC. If the rpm's drop and don't come back up or the car dies, it is probably a dirty max air flow sensor. This is an easy fix even for a novice. Many you tube videos to show you how to clean.
2)check spark plug wires and boots. Cheap solution and a likely culprit.
3)Is your service engine soon light on? Could be an emissions problem. If you are able to drive the vehicle and notice that even at highway speeds you slow down with pressure on the accelerator you may have to replace something in secondary emissions control. Not likely.

If it is a vac. hose leak you should be able to hear it and locate it with your hood up and engine running.

2000 kia sephia cranks but engine wont run


The fuel pump may have died. Can you hear it turn on briefly, by turning the key to "on"? You may have to stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to on. It should turn on for about 2 seconds and then stop, after pressurizing the fuel system. If you don't hear it, then check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is good, and the pump won't run, one needs to check that the fuel pump wire at the tank connector has battery voltage on it when the engine is cranking-then, you can assume the pump needs replacing.
If the pump is working and you have gas up to the engine, you would next check the ignition system. Start that by checking for spark on one of the spark plug wires.

My 2002 Ford Explorer wont crank!


I'm assuming the coilpack got wet!! Check if there is any power to the coil before changing. If thats fine, replace the coil. If there is no power, check your electrical circuit for the coil. Hopefully this helps

Car loses power while driving and jerks while it's trying to accelerate but cannot,as I press pedall to the floor.Completely slows to a crawl on the freeway and almost stops but engine does not die.Then...


if you don't have a gas cap on the car or if it is on too loosely then that is a possibility. Only other thing I could think of would be water in your fuel. You may try a bottle of "heat" (I think that is how you spell it) at your local auto parts store and chunk it in the gas can. if there were any problems with water that should be the cure.
