No not at all. Sounds like you may be have a fuel issue. Check the fuel pump and make sure when under load you are getting proper fuel.

    It wouldnt be a bad idea now that it is doing this to do a full tune up. Replace spark plugs. Wires. fuel filter. EGR, IAC, oil. things like that

WHY IS MY 1994 CHEVY CHEYENNE DRIVE FINE ON THE FREEWAY BUT IN TOWN IT WILL DIE ON ME AT STOP LIGHTS.


I would check your battery connections. Clean them even if they look ok. I had a 93 olds that did that and it was a battery connection being dirty. Also check your fuel filter(replace it if you can) and the spark plug wires/cap and rotor can cause this. Low RPM at a stop light lets the voltage drop too much on the alternator and the battery isn't helping since its dirty so the engine dies. Then when you start it, it pulls enough amps to bypass the dirt to start.

Engine dies


It's not your battery. It might be your IAC valve (intake air control valve) or an EGR valve, maybe even a vacuum leak. The battery is fine. Your fuel filter is most likely fine. When the fuel filter plugs, the car will usualy idle ok but will lose power during acceleration.

My 2003 Ford Focus dies when idling after a little road trip.


have the check engine light checked at a parts store its usuall free. I would bet its the idle air control motor. This controls the fuel air mixture at idle

While driving my 1993 929 down the road it just stopped running...had it checked out was told ti would be best to get a new motor and got a second opinion and was told to get a timing belt and fuel pump....


before going crazy , check the crank sensor out, a bad crank sensor will cause timing to be out of sync. more then likely engine will not start. or irregular rpm function if vehicle starts at all. it controls timing and sends info to pcm. if a crank sensor fails while driving the engine will die out. have scanned if check engine light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all.
first of all, if crank sensor is ok, then you can check the timing belt.

96 yukon just all of a sudden dies while driving down the road. has done this a few times. Usually starts back up after coming to a stop. lately has been hard to start in the mornings. other than the dying...


This is most likely an ignition module located inside the distributor that is failing intermittently, this truck should be brought to a Auto Zone to check for trouble codes that are stored, they do the code check for free and this will help narrow down the problem so you won't be changing parts that are not bad.
