Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly


I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

1998 Chevrolet C3500 dies randomly when driving down the road - uphill, downhill or flat surfaces. Typically doesn't happen when it's cold. Sometimes it starts back up and sometimes it doesn&#


my younger brothers' truck did the same thing and there was a relay up under the dashboard that would get hot and shut of(kind of a circuit breaker unit) most of the operating systems will flash at you when only battery voltage is available which explains the lights coming on..these newer trucks also have a performance chip in the system that will act up when it gets warm also..replace this and you may be ok..let me know what happens also.. good luck.

Engine runs great, everything seems to work but since buying it yesterdday it has just died going down the road 3 different times, then sometimes starts right up and other times it needs to sit a minute...


hi if the check engine light comes on i would start by changing fuel filter or fuel pump, however sometimes sensors dont trigger the check engine light and if it doesnt come on i would pull out the cam and crank sensors and clean them as they maybe dirty and causing the spark to die randomly

2008 avalon limited that dies randomly esp. in reverse. Sometimes will restart, I had it towed this last time. help! dealer cannot replicate the problem as it happens randomly.


Best advice would be to leave this car with the dealer for a week or two for them to drive to see if they can replicate the problem. If the dealer is unable to fix the issue, you may have to file a complaint with Toyota. This is not a common complaint from Avalon owners that I'm aware of as of yet. Start keeping a detailed journal of when (dates and times) and EXACTLY what you are doing when this happens. With it dying randomly, I would say its a big safety issue... call the dealer for a tow every time it happens.

91 jeep randomly wont start; also spits/sputters on acceleration


First (I"M starting to sound like a broken record on this) check the ground connections at both ends of the cable.(smaller body grounds as well) Make sure they are clean where they make contact with block and terminal post (not just on the outside.) Make sure hot wire is also clean and fastened correctly. Right now, we are trying to find out what it's not., Then, you can get to what it is.Often small stupid things can look like other larger problems.

Engine sensor on the dash board turns on randomly


Hi. either the oil is low, or the oil pump not working properly. Check the oil level to see if it's full, and if it is, you might want to consider replacing the oil pump. Hope this works for you
