Died at redlight. now wont restart.

Car just abruptly died at a red light when i hit the gas. Would not restart and had it towed to my house. Car will briefly start but sounds kind of bogged down and slow and will die out after a few seconds. Plugs are good, its getting gas, and i just had the crank sensor replaced.

My 89 vw cabriolet automatic wont go into gear after towing it replacing filters and shifter cable

My first thought is bent shifter forks or linkage is off. Start with the linkage as it is easier. Shifter forks are internal tranny components.

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Driving about 10 minutes-stop at redlight and all dashboard lights come on and brakes feel locked. Have to restart ignition and then it's fine. Happened about a month ago as well....

Wiring harness runs along the left side of this vehicle between the engine compartment & the instrument panel junction box (left side under dash). damage may have occurred to this harness and no one found/noticed it.

Getting to front turn signal bulb on 2001 4runner

There is a vertical screw holding the light in (there is a plastic bracket extending inwardsfrom the housing).
Once that is out, give the light a abrupt hit with the palm of your hand in a forward motion and the rear claw will release, and the housing will slide forward out of the car. Then you can change the bulb.

1987 jeep comanche 2.5L (gas). Engine died

Do you have a rpm guage? If so see is it moves when cranking, if not the crankshaft sensor is bad and is located on top of the transmission bell housing. Also it can be scanned to confirm a faulty sensor

Tucson 2009 dies mid drive

The possible CAUSES of the problem you describe are NUMEROUS!.. You may have what the industry calls a 'LEMON.' There is a LEMON law in every state. Sinse it's a 2009 model, keep at them (dealership). Warranty procedures APPLY! You may not like it, but you are covered under WARRANTY!.. I'm sorry, but under the warranty agreements between Hyundai Motor America and the Dealerships, you are relegated to KEEP AT them.The most difficult problems/malfunctions to diagnose are those which DON'T STAY BROKEN! Tell you what, since you posted your problem here, you'll have to do some homework yourself (become a Hyundai Certified Technician).. then you'll see how DIFFICULT the diagnosis can be. Walk a mile in the technician's shoes! Sometimes the problem can simply be a resistive/poor ground
circuit, OR, could be potentially a multitude of different problems. Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), Insist they find out what the problem is!... Then you'll have the option of having them buy it back under the "Lemon Law.'

Car died at the stoplight. Oil light came on.

Probably blowed it. Sorry to say. You can continue to crank it but it probably already seized a bearing. Run a pressure check on the oil.
