Starts but shuts off after a few seconds.


what year is is, for one. Does it have distributor? It could be all sorts of things. If you have to diagnose it you need a fuel pressure gauge to see if it has right fuel pressure. Next, or really first, check for spark when not running by removing one sparkplug wire and having someone crank the engine and the wire end needs to be placed near a ground to see if you have continuous spark. you might need to stick a phillips screw driver to provide a better path for electricity to jump.

2006 jeep liberty dying randomly. Oil change and new air filter. About to change spark plugs and wires. No gauge lights, no sputtering. Just turns off randomly, starts right back up when I put in neutral...


My 2006 Liberty has a similar issue. The oil light beeps and then the engine shuts off. I put the car in park and it restarts and the oil light goes off. I had the oil, filter, and lines checked and everything checked out. The mechanic thinks it may be the oil sensor going out and that for safety reasons the engine shuts down when the oil light comes on.

2005 chevy silverado misfires we changed plugs and wires no check engine light comes on at all goes dead when in gear


Have the PCM diagnosed, it may be defective. If the engine is really misfiring and you are dead sure of that the check engine light should be blinking at you. Are you sure the light works? Does the CEL prove out when key is turned to run?

2003 Lincoln V6 check engine light came on and the rear shakes when in low gear. Oil was changed on Friday. What cold be the problem


Since your check engine light came on it will store the problem for about 20 starts. If you go to Autozone or Oreillys you can get a free scan. This should diagnose one of your problems.

There are position sensors for both the crankshaft and the cams. Its possible a wire was moved during the oilchange. The computer should diagnose it.

engine is pinking,predetonation of fuel or the fuel mixture is weak which can be caused by a vacumn leak on the inlet manifold ,such as the take off for the servo ,or the manifold bolts loose.Also the timing is set wrong which could be a fault with sensor or the sensor drive ring .Without the car in front of me i cannot really diagnose a fault like this ,either get the VW mechanic to have a look and if he thinks its electronic then take it to VW

91 camry starts and shuts off when put in drive or reverse


I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.
