    Stalls out while driving, never know when it is going to happen. Sometimes starts right back up,but 2 times now I have had to have it towed. Then it usually starts next day. Could it be the crank sensor or possibly the fuel pump?

1999 Dodge 1 ton won't start sometimes. There's no set pattern to it. Sometimes it'll crank right up, but other times ill have to try it everyday for a week before it'll start.


when it doesnt start does it crank? if it cranks all day and doesnt start spray some starting fluid in the throttle body and see if it starts and then if it dies then you are not getting enough fuel pressure but if it doesnt start then your iginiton system is acting up or your crankshaft sensor could be bad

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.

2004 gmc sonoma why does it take 2-3 times cranking before it starts and only does it sometimes?


install pressure gauge and watch when key is turned off to see if pressure drops to zero if so bad drain back valve in fuel pump replace it or deal with it or could be cheap aftermarket pump and has hard time building unnecessary pressure to open poppet valves between before fuel injectors

Will stall while idling in drive and not restart right away. Jeep will seem to turn over, and RPMs rev up, then the engine dies.


no its more than likely not related to the trans,if you are having shift problems though,i would have the tps(throttle position sensor) checked out.another thing to check is the vacume lines to and from the egr valve and the valve its self for proper operation.

Starting problem


Had similar problem with a Gemini. Try releasing the petrol filler cap before starting to equalise fuel tank/fuel line pressures.
