    I have a F150 with a 5.4L engine that will not remain running after cranking sometimes. It will shut off after cranking. I changed the PCV valve but the problem still exists. I'm think its a valve somewhere but not sure which one to check next. Any suggestions?

check for codes in the PCM if none the I would check fuel pressure and volume. the volume should be about 1 pint in 15 seconds. the fuel pressure should be 35lbs, continually check pressure until the car dies as sometimes a bad fuel pump won`t show up immediately. also change the fuel filter.

Battery drain


Probably. Over a few months a battery needs to have a float charge on it to expect it to start in the spring. I'd purchase a float charger (quite inexpensive) and hook it up whenever the vehicle is not run at least semi-monthly. Just storing a vehicle is not good. They should be driven, and fully warmed up, say about 10 miles or so, at least once a month. More frequently is better.

2009 corolla dies shortly after starting. Won't restart for several hours.


The next time it fails to start, you will need to narrow down the possible causes of no spark and no fuel by checking for each.

The car is shutting off after starting then draining the battery. I have tested the battery and it is still good. Is this an alternator problem or something else?


Yes, the majority of vehicles can be started and then the battery completely removed from the vehicle and continue to run. If your Jeep dies and then wont restart (or is hesitant) because of a dead battery, this would most likely be the alternator connections, or event he alternator itself. Obviously the alternator is not supplying current to the vehicle. Most autopart stores can check the alternator for you, often free of charge and the easiest placed to start.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Starts an dies in a few seconds


Check the charging system.
If the charging system is not charging it will not energize the fuel pump relay after start and the vehicle will stall.
If this is a 4 cylinder engine remove the blue charge relay in the under hood fuse box and see if it will start and run. If it will then mostlikly the alternator may not be charging

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage that starts then dies


There are a few things for you to do to get it running right. Any fuel that may have been in the system would have turned in to varnished and needs to be cleaned out of your fuel system. You can buy a can of Sea Foam from the Auto Parts Store and follow the instructions. THe other thing to is to buy a can of throttle body cleaner and clean out the throttle body and Idle air control valve which would cure the stalling problem. Start with that and give it a good run on the road and then do an oil and filter change to ge all the water condensation contamination out of the engine and also to the transmission fluid and filter change too. Good luck and this should na a good start to getting your car running 100% again.

Car dies while driving


Sorry to hear about your vehicle. First things first. When you say driving, what are you ding and where are you? such as; on the highway, at a stop light, making a left hand turn, coming to a stop. Second, when you say dies , do you mean your driving, your cars "shuts off" and your stuck in the middle of the road? and when you say stays dead do you try to start it? does your radio come on? are your light on or are they dim? all these are very helpful in diagnosing the root cause of this concern. also was there any work done recently to the vehicle? if the car is running and it dies a few things could be the cause. one, not that common, your engine could be starving of fuel, fuel pumps, filters and injectors and throttle body could all cause a fuel starvation. two spark cuts out. I work for volvo and i see coils (devices that increase spark) on 98+ vehicles literally crack in certain areas and cause rough idles, choppy acceleration (stuttering while getting on a freeway) but third and most likely battery/ charging system (these are just three common flaws there are lots of other little things associated with the electronic fuel injection system and monitoring that could and may well be the cause). the way your vehicle works is the battery stores a charge and your vehicle draws from the charge what it needs. on start up its battery power until your alternator reaches a certain speed (or the computer tells it to turn on) that supplies the power to the vehicles electrical system. now that i know you have an understanding i can suggest what, giving the limited info i have, i would look for first. if there is no rough idle apparent when the vehicle is warm that suggests fuel probably is ok and so is spark. now if your alternator cannot keep filling the battery up with an electrical charge, your car could just plain turn off. now this could cause a slow cranking when trying to start the car again and it may not even start. but as to why it will come back to life after a few mins or few days is interesting. check connections at the battery because that will prevent the flow of electricity. make sure its clean of dirt and paint too. take a wire brush and clean it. also is there anything white or powder-like on the terminals? oxidation causes a poor connection. that can be cleaned with spray cleanser from auto parts stores or scrubbing with baking soda and water but thats my guess without having the car to test. please post what you find out about your car.
