Sounds to me like a faulty crank or cam sensor. sometimes they act up when the motor is warm or at temp. this sensor will fail complety in time, then no restart till replaced.

Sounds like either the ignition module and or a coil pack is the culprit. I dont remember what year they changed it but if your is the one where the coil packs/module are located on the back of the motor they are a little tricky to get to. You need to remove dog bone mount and replace with a tool that will pull the motor forward so you can gain easier access...good luck. Hopefully yours are right on the top where they should have been since day one... :-)

This sounds like a classic fuel system problem. Manually check your 1 & 3 plugs to prove /disprove the code. If they're OK, which I'll bet they are, check the fuel pump. If it tests good then you have a fouled gas tank, I'll bet. Especially if you live in the Northwest. If you let it sit with low fuel, the extra air space lets condensation form, causing rust and moisture in your gas. Usually changing the fuel filter will give you some temporory improvement if this is the problem. If it didn't then it could be your air intake not delivering enough flow to give it the proper fuel/air ratio. When's the last time you changed the air filter?

Disconnect the battery completely, try turning the key with the battery disconnected. Put the battery back together. The check engine light should be off now..

My grandmother has a 1991 Chevy Lumina. It just started cutting off whenever it chooses. She gassed the pedal and the engine sputtered and cut off. What could be the problem? Could it be a dirty fuel...


I knew someone with a 92 Lumina who had the same problem and it turned out to be a bad fuel pump. If she has had the car for a long time and never had it changed, then it's definitely a good place to start. If the filter hasn't been changed in a while or possibly ever, then it should be changed. When it's a fuel related problem, it's usually worse when the engine is cold. If it's a catalytic converter problem, then it usually gets worse the longer you drive it.
Fuel system problems are usually checked with a fuel pressure gauge. the injectors must have a constant supply of fuel delivered at a certain pressure at all times for proper engine operation.
Catalytic converter problems can be checked by removing the converter and installing a test pipe. If the problem goes away, then the converter should be replaced. I hope this information has been helpful.

DO you have any engine codes still remaining? IF car restarts right away its gonna be tricky finding out what is dropping out. Engine codes are the best clue to start the hunt for problem. From experience however, I have had a few of these come in for same symptom. There are two wires that run from Ignition module/coil pack to the crank sensor, insulation falls off and they melt to each other or to hot engine, intermittent short disruption of signal, hence car stalls whenever wherever and restarts right away.

1991 honda accord wagon idles rough after driving it and i stop it looks like it cuts off but start right back up can you help me....


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. I would suggest to you to have a tune up. Change the spark plugs, coils, wires, coil packs. You could have a bad idle control sensor or something to that nature. If you have a check engine light on, get it scanned for codes. The tune up may solve your problem. Check the air filter and fuel filter. Make sure that you don't have no vacuum leaks.

1998 chevy lumina driving down the road and it just died. it will turn over but wont start. Something with the fuel system? Changed filter.


There are literally dozens of thing that could cause a car to die and not start again. If could be fuel related: fuel pump, fuel filter, fuses, bad gas, etc. It could be spark related: crankshaft sensor, ignition module, coil pack, etc. It could be mechanical: timing chain (or belt), broken internal engine parts, etc. My point is, it is impossible to determine what's wrong without further diagnostis. I recomend you take the car to a mechanic you can trust and have it looked at. Stay away from the big chain stores and find an independant garage.
