Car cuts off while driving but the check engine light is not on

My car for the last 3 months has been cutting off while I'm driving no matter the speed. Once it cuts off. it crank back up sometimes on the first try but sometimes it takes 4 to 5 tries. The Honda dearlership states they can't do anything unless it cuts off in there presence, but it is hard to determine when it will cut off. Can you give me some suggesions of what it could be? It doesn't cut off daily but probably twice a week. The dealer states they can't hook it up to a machine because the check engine light is not on. This is dangerous because I never no when it will cut off. I have changed the battery, radiator, fuel filter, oil change. I'm confused. I need help

Try having the fuel pump examined. If Honda won't do it, have a "lube shop" do it. It could also be the distributor, spark plugs, or a problem with the fuel injection system.

98/88 delta oldsmoble cuts off while driving what could it be


The warning lights on the dash will come on when the engine dies.
If it dies and starts up like you turned the key it could be a relay or other electrical problem. May be tough to find if you can't test components while it is not starting.
I assume the check engine light is not on when the engine is running.

Engine cuts off


this is a hard one to fiqure out unless the vehicle does not starty at all because you have distinguish if it is gas or spark. The distributer has a module that may be breaking down. You have to remove the Dist cap and rotor to get to the module. It has two screws that hold in place using 1/4 inch nut driver to remove it. You can take it to oriellys and they can test it to see if it is good or bad. If you have a check engine light on you can take the truck to auto zone to see what codes are in the system. They will do this for no charge.

Cuts out while driving with plenty of gas


possible fuel pump or filter, if the timing belt goes the car stops completely and will not start.


The fast indicator flash is odd and usually means a blown bulb, perhaps a bad eath cable from the battery

Engine cuts out


Although your pollen filter will not cause the engine to cut out, a lack of oil pressure will. Check your oil level. Then take your vehicle into a dealer soonest.

Wont start sometimes idles rough when first start, cut off


Do you check for codes every time you have a problem?
You know it isn't temperature related.
You know that pressing the gas pedal won't change computer input under certain conditions
How do you know you have fuel pressure? Do you drive with a gauge taped to the windshield?
Why didn't the shop repair it?
I would get a wiring diagram and check all grounds
Then scan the Throttle Position Sensor. As in, put a scanner or oscilloscope or volt meter on it.
Go through the entire system until you resolve it
