Check fuel pressure. If ok; replace the Idle Control Valve. Auto Zone has it for $46.

Jeep starts once it warms up it will die out but will start up again it might take all day before it does again


the 4.0L I-6 inline 6, over 5 million made. (owned 3 for 500k miles)
it can only be 3 things, bad engine,bad spark, bad fueling.
(and others, EGR stuck etc)
but you never stated the GOOD,just bad.
does IT Have full power up hills , if it does start.? hot or cold power?
a key fact,
and key fact 2? can you save the stall, with a fast right foot.?????
stalls 101:
  1. never ever tuned up in decade. (most owners !)
  2. stalls for bad spark ,see #1
  3. stalls for lack of fuel, see #1 and new fuel filter.
  4. EGR stuck open engine will stall. (some 4Ll have no EGR)
  5. Lost fueling,
  6. Flooding

there are simple tests to find it, my guessing is fruitless waste.

ALL day no starts.
cranks robustly does it (guess yes)
(lost spark, test for lost spark x6 (and at coil)
lost fueling, Spark trips dry test.
flooding, spark tips dripping in raw fuel, test.

so ever get a tune up,or just driving it till it drops dead, like most do.

Car stalls, starts up then stalls again, starts up and stalls again


This could have several problems. #1 Fuel pressure due freezing water in fuel lines add thermal aid or rubbing alcohol . If you have access to a pressure gauge there is a service fitting on fuel rail that you can test pressure while driving and see if the pressure is gone when car dies this could lead to fuel pump electrical or more restricted lines. #2 intermittent sensor failure Mopar uses 2 sensors to control spark and fuel lose one could lose spark lose the other lose injection with a scanner they call it C/C sync ok (cam/crank) if no then check for each parameters for display.# 3 relay controls ASD and FUEL pump for voltage drops.

I have a 2007 Suzuki xl7. When I first start down the road it seems to drive fine but within 1/2 to 1 mile it starts running very rough, leaping along. This goes for about another 1 to 3 miles. It runs...


ok and XL 7 but what engine options. gas, diesel, 2L , 2.5L?
what?
and most important , and never ever 1 time stated on this forum
what country.
leaping?

im not sure what you are saying.
it runs ok cold, and as it warms , the engine. it stalls.?
and what does same thing mean.?
my guess, it starts fine then stalls; hot.
but can you save the stall?

stalling is complex. can be many systems in the car.
but can be broken down to :
Ever did the 60k mile tune up,ever? if not why not.
never skip 60k\'s or the motor will run like garbage.


1: lost electrical power. to EFI .
2: bad engine, in that when it gets hot , it loses compression.
3: lost park. 1 or more cylinders, 4 or 6 you never said.
4: bad injection. 1 or 6 of them, flooding or starving.
5: bad fuel.
6:EGR sticking , usually this happens just before a stop sign.
7: if the stall was a bog and the fast right foot saved the stall, easy
the ISC is sticking closed.

Recommended oil change mileage


You can more or less pick your number depending on how you use the truck.
Oil change shops will tell you 3,000 miles or 3 months, the general rule today is 5,000 miles or 6 months, and your owners manual probably says something else.
It should be changed at least once a year if you don't drive it much, or more than every 5,000 miles if you drive it hard or use it for towing or city driving.

I have a 93' sierra 6 cylinder 2 wheel drive, once engine warms up it sputters and loses power. If you shift from drive to reverse it stalls and won't start. When engine has cooled it starts like a champ...


The problem may be the engine coolant sensor. If the sensor fails the engine will stop when normal operating temperature is reached . When engine is cold it will start.

Check throttle position sensor, and IAC motor. Possible the intake is needing to be cleaned also.

Service enginge light on turns traction off


Most likely a bad wheel bearing, or wiring to the wheel bearing. I would start by having it scanned to point you in the right direction. (What bearing to look at). Could also be something in the ABS module.
