I have a 1999 ford escort 2.0 split port motor that will not start but will turn over


You should have had it checked when the lights first started warning.
If the fuel and spark are present and all good at the cylinder head then I would start by having a compression test, you do not say whether one of the lights was the oil pressure light or water temperature. If the vehicle was stalling because of overheating it may be that the cylinder head gasket has lost it's effectiveness.
It may be that your engine is beyond repair, the compressioon test is the first step to finding out if this is the case.

Why does my service engine soon light come on when the car is working properly but not when it doesn't?


The light is in test mode when you start, so you can check the bulb is working. The light has nothing to do with whether you stall it only estimates whether you need a service based on time, number of starts (and probably some other parameters - perhaps someone else knows what they are).

I have a 2001 Saturn L200 sedan. The dash, radio, and gear shifter lights have been flikering randomly when the head lights are on. I was told it was a sensor or something in the steering colom. Any I


Your battery is not charged and gets drained constantly, dome lights doesn't take much voltage to be lit. Get a voltmeter and check on the battery. Engine off it should be all charged up and 12V ish. Try to start your engine, should be 13-14v charging, if not, then it is your alternator not charging or SOMEHOW your battery doesn't receive enough charging from the alternator.
When you turn on the headlight while engine is running and died off because the alternator some how couldn't supply enough current to power both headlights and motor ignition system
Get your alternator tested, before that all connections between alternator and battery is NOT LOOSE, or broken or damaged. Then go to auto electrician. Then sort out your fuses later.

Stalls on right turns starts right back up


For trouble shooting, install a fuel pressure gauge an allow it to sit near the windshield wipers while you attempt to make it stall. Does the FP drop while turning?

Possible Service Engine Soon Light, Engine Stalling, or Hard Starting

Engine, May 18, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The RTV seal on the fuel system control modules may allow water to enter into the module. Water in the module can cause a short, which may cause hard starting, a crank-no start condition, or stalling, and the Service Engine Soon light may come on. If the engine stalls unexpectedly, there is an increased risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel system control module free of charge. The recall began on May 18, 2009. The GM recall number is 08411.

Car stalls out after engine warms up and will not start again right away


Does the service engine soon light come on before the engine stalls? If so, take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan your car for trouble codes and report back.
If you do not have a service engine soon light on, I would suspect a faulty crank sensor may be causing the problem.
Is the stalling condition consistent with every warm up? Does it stall every time the engine warms up?

2003 Cuts off when hot, will not start untill cool


My 2003 nissan sentra would get hot and stall out even in middle of highway doing 70 mph. The guages would go up and down. Would not start up all the time after stalling. had to cool down first. Nissan said it was head gasket, and wanted to charge 1000.00 for the job. I took to local dealer who charged me 550.00. Works fine ever since. Nissan dealer said they do like 3 head gaskets a week on the sentras. They have crappy ones in original parts. They have not recalled though.
