1996 dogde advenger wont stay running keeps dying

My car wont keep running like you can start it once a day and it will get almost to operating temperature and then shut down. We put in a new computer and it still does the same thing so we went and got one of the pocket scanner things and hooked it up but it wouldnt work so put it on a different car and it worked we was told by someone who works at autozone that there isnt any power going to where you hook the scanner up at.. any suggestions on what it is that wont keep my car running??

Battery will stay charged

Have the battery charged and tested and then test the charging system. You should never run a car with a very dead battery. that will burn out the alternator.

Some models have to be retaught how to idle once the battery dies, so you need to start the truck and feather the gas peddle to keep it running and do this for a few minutes, the computer has to relearn how to idle the engine.

1996 sebring convertable wont start without jump but when it does start it knocks and gurgglesthen dies

Hi Mike, Im glad to help!

Mike if you haven't already done so. My first repair on this car would be a battery replacement and check the charging system for proper operation. WHY? Because if the computer and all the relays are not getting the proper 12 volts then the car will not run properly. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mike.

well you narrowed it down to a fuel problem. not sure about your model, but most cars have a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail to reduce un needed pressures. that could possibly be bad. its cylinder in shape and has a vacuum hose connected to it. check the hose and that unit.

Car wont stay running after initial start up?

Will it stay running if you keep the pedal depressed. If so you have a Idle Air Control valve issue. If it wont run at all it may be a bad fuel pump
