    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?

Try spraying carburetor cleaner into the engine through the throttle plate to see if it will run then . If it does fuel system problem .

2013 forester won’t start. Not engaging starter but gets a clicking sound. Tried noting yet


Check battery!

If voltage goes below 9 then battery needs to be charged

If headlights go very dim during crank battery needs charge

If after charge same result replace battery

Hope this helps?

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.

Why the engine starts, runs about 5 second, dies and then won't start, if you wait 10 minutes it starts and runs fine, this happens once every few weeks/months or twice in one day, no set pattern. hav


I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? What testing have you done? Make sure battery has a full charge?
When the problem is ongoing, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
If you have the spider fuel system, that system is noted for problems.

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.

Engine dies while idling, then car won't start for a few minutes


One possibility is a blocked fuel line or filter. It basically runs out of fuel and you have to wait for it to come through slowly. The other possibility is the ignition system is losing spark as something heats up. You have to wait until it's cooled down before it runs again.

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.

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.
