Question about Cars & Trucks
Engine cuts out for no reason. Possible Grounding Wire problem from Engine to Chassis? Made a left turn and engine chugged and died. Headed for home and engine dies several times, sometimes restarting immediately, sometimes not.
No reason!!! If there was no reason-- it would work just fine
How about a worn out fuel pump that quites when it feels

The intake gaskets leaking would cause the engine to have a misfire. Get a can of Brake Clean and spray in around the intake manifold on the top of the engine while the engine is running. The engine idle will go up or down if there is a leak. Also try swapping the spark plug with another spark plug to see if the misfire moves to another cylinder. If it moves then you have a bad spark plug. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: dies while driving
First off, add a new ground wire from the engine to the body just for the hell of it. Now clean all the battery cable connetors aat all point and add WD40 afterwards. Also check connectors from dash panel to engine circuits. This is real suspect. WD 40 them also

Sounds like fuel pump is going bad.Change fuel filter to make sure its not that.Then put a fuel pressure gauge on the schraider valve located on the fuel rail (its like the valve on your tire) to check if the pump is up to specs.(Make sure you have rags around to soke up any fuel spillage) With the gauge on have some one start the vehicle as normal and watch the gauge,if it drops below specs replace the pump .TIP:You can borrow a fuel pressure gauge from AutoZone and ask them the fuel pump p.s.i. spec on your vehicle.Free,free,free diagnosis!!!

Could be an air flow fault, check all your air pipes for holes or splits and also check the air flow meter and sensor. just clean them up before going any further.
Also check the earth lead from the battery to the slam panel, and to the gearbox make sure all the earths have a good contact to the car body.
