Hi
I think there is a problem with your car's micro controller get it checked by the technician. Also you can check the fuse box , may be one of the fuse is not properly connected or is broken

Hello, Your problem may actually be your transmission. The missing under load could be transmission "bucking" and the reason your engine stalls is because the torque converter is not unlocking. This is actually more common than it may seem but, it might be an easy fix. Without the check engine light comming on it seams odd but, to be sure you need to get an OBD monitor plugged in an see what it sais. Good luck.

I have seen this problem before, and It actually turned out to be a spark plug wire that had worn through the insulation by vibrating on the other engine parts... inspect all spark plug wires before you go overhauling the whole engine - remember, check the easiest and simplest things first.

Sir,

Check the engine oil for water. Change the oil if necessary. If the engine will not crank over as if it is frozen, remove the spark plugs and turn the engine over by hand to remove the water from the cylinders. Dry out the ignition system – spark plugs, coil, etc. On your engine are several sensors that feed information to the computer. Remove the connectors and dry them out. If the computer got wet, try drying it but be prepared to replace it. Almost forgot, check the gas tank for water.

Thanks
goodluck

Hi
The ECM is most likey the culprit but I would check ground wires and wiring harness to be sure they aren't faulty. With you telling me the voltage is too high, it pretty much points to wiring but the ECM may have gone bad and its just sending blind signals hence the high voltage. The engine light isn't coming maybe because of the ECM isn't working. Pray it isnt the ECM, its costly but exhaust your options by checking wiring and ground beforing fingering the ECM.

    I think you should check the vehicle speed sensor. It is on the transmission near the cv joints. Also check the ground. I am thinking that the check engine light is indicating the VSS. Go to Autozone and ask them to read the engine code. Please post the results.

 answer: in addition to the battery voltage to "turn the engine over"...ignition requires spark and gas. I'm having the same problem with our 86 Volvo. The mechanic says the spark plugs are providing the spark...but fuel isn't getting to the cyliders. It's probably a blown fuse to the fuel pump or a bad fuel pump...or more remotely a poor connection between the fuse and the fuse clips...or a leak in the fuel line. Our car has two fuel pumps and since our problem has been intermittant, like yours, and we've checked fuses and connections, we're betting it's one of the fuel pumps pooped out.

Hi hogsnort

Sounds like your timing belt has jumped. Time for a new belt. If you want to fix this yourself, let me know. The easiest way is with a haynes manual which can be purchased at any auto parts store.
good luck

    You need to replace your timing belt, the timing is off if you are missing, simple answer, not so easy to replace, if you need help doing it, let me know

    btw, the check engine light won't go on if the timing belt jumped as it doesn't have a sensor to check or know this, hence the timing belt is your problem. How many miles are on this truck? Timing belts wear out and need to be replaced every so many miles usually 70k-90k miles.

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.
