My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

95 jeep grand cherokee will run fine for few days then will cut out...tach will drop to zero...then sput sput..and sometimes will jump back up and keep going...other times it will stall completely, and...


With all the stuff going on...seems to take me to the battery and the power distribution box near the battery. Ensure all the battery connections are clean and free of any dirt or corrosion.
A little bit of corrosion will block 12vdc either completely or in part.
That positive battery post (+) provides power to the computer which in turn can make things pretty flaky if it doesnt get its power.
Not to mention, the power distribution box provides power thru relays to the fuel pump, ignition system, the starter and a host of other "car bodily functions"...

I'd have that section of the car gone over with a fine tooth comb...so to speak.

Hope this helps...

My subaru impreza 2.0 turbo AWD engine has cut out 3 time in the last couple of weeks! the engine just dies no warning lights come on and after a while it restarts as if nothing wrong! no unusual noises...


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.

Xf falcon ute dies driving up hill


have had a few of these in with carb faults but were 2 barrel type.basic checks first,is pcv valve hose under carb not split(runs to valve cover or oil cap on this model?).try driving without airfilter element for test,have had one in that looked clean but had a fine mist of oil on it that blocked and caused air starve and stall on power.Did both problems start at same time? or maybe you are chasing 2 probs.being a ute.I have had probs with rusting petrol tanks and blocked fuel filters
