Nearly always an electrical fault. Start by unplugging sensor plugs and plug them back in again. There is also a problem area in the engine bay low down near the air intake - a multi-plug prone to water ingress - unplug, clean and re-assemble.
If you still have problems, it can be any of the engine sensors, the ECU, injectors or Coilpack.
Quickest way is to plug it into diagnostic eqmpt, or check each sensor in turn against known good parts.

I have a 98 isuzu rodeo and it wont stay running unless I keep my foot on the gas. The check engine light isnt on so I have no clue what to do, can anyone give me some suggestions please?


hot or cold engine,or both????????????????????
sure...
the ECU works OVERTIME; hard, to keep the engine running.
this is done by the action of the ISC valve.
so can you keep it running with a fast right foot??????????
a real mech needs to drive car.
does it have full power on hills?
is the tune up service done, the 60kmile repeats and needs to be done.
the ECU can not keep idle right on any engine that runs like crappppppp.

1: all fuses good.
2: engine never warms to normal 180F+ temp and hold???
3: not tuned up.
4: engine misfiring.
5: engine flooding.
6: engine starving for fuel.
7: OMG, the ISC wires fell off, (inspections do work on old cars)

there are simple tests. for each case.
one more #8. EFI system lost 12vdc power. stalls.
12.6vdc not running, 13.3v -15v running.

Will a bad ignition switch not let the engine shut off?


there is every possibility that there will be a problem as if the power wire to the ignition is touching the run wire (internally) then the engine keeps getting power to run and will not switch off.

How to change cam sensor on pontiac GR AM 3,4L 1999


Place a jack underneath the engine with a block of wood on it as to not damage the engine and pump up the jack just enough to keep the engine from sagging down. Then remove the engine mount near the power steering unit. Removing the motor mount doesn't have to be done, but it makes it easier to remove the power steering pump (your choice). Remove power steering pump and set it aside keeping all the hoses attached. Camshaft position sensor is located beneath power steering pump. It should be held on by 1 bolt if I remember right. Disconnect the 2 wire harness and remove sensor.

ENGINE TEMP GOES TO HOT. I APPLIED POWER DIRECTLY TO FAN FAN OPERATES.BUT WHEN THE ENGINE GETS ABOVE OPERATING TEMP THE FAN DOES NOT RUN.


Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Your problem is a simple, you have a busted thermoswitch. The thermoswitch is a sensor that engages the fan to get the engine to stay on normal operating temperatures. If the its too cold, the fan should get shut off if its to hot the fan should keep running. If the thermoswitch dies, the fan could either keep running or not run at all. Have the thermoswitch replaced. It's just a 15 minute job for a seasoned mechanic.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

A kind of grinding sound when turning and some leaking oil


Power steering grinding noise can be ok, or it could be pump wear. The only way to tell is if the power steering oil looks sort of metalic, from tiny bits of metal in it.

And by the way, power steering oil is red, so easy to distinguish from engine oil. But a few leaks are ok as long as you can keep the level up.

As long as you keep the fluids up, you can wait until it gets worse. A bad pump will get very noisy, and there is no reason to change it before then. The metal won't hurt anything.

1983 ford bronco 302 engine wont stay running after jumped


keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.

I was driving my car and when turning i lost my power steering and brakes when i parked i turned off the engine and after that it wont restart. later on we found that the sparks wernt getting any fuel but...


Question?? did you lose your serpentine belt, so your lost your power steering and then the engine died. Or did the engine die and then you lost the power steering??? If the engine died, may be the fuel filter has reached the end of it's life and dirty and needs to be replaced, If the engine was running and you lost the serpentine belt, the belt may have taken out your crank shaft sensor, so the engine does not know when to command the #1 injector to fire to get the engine to start. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running
