I have a 2006 dodge magnum it will start sometime fine but then it will start then about 3 seconds it would cut off to it to dodge twice they cant find out anything changed the battery got i new key...


can i buy a comma., says Vanna White>?
one rule of dealers, (avoid them use independent ASE shops)
or go broke. ($25 spark plugs there... i warned yah)
rule 2,
never take a car to any dealer unless you can DEMONSTRATE the failure. most shops can NOT fix cars that work,
they will try, and charge you CASH for trying, and no blush.

my impression is, the cars issues are INTERMITTENT.
if you dont know cars and electrics, then it may be impossible for you.
but some nicer independant shops might drive it for a day for you
to get it to fail. that WORKS, see WHY?

your engine stalls. that is the key word, random STALLS.
now lets work that IDEA.
there are 3 paths (one of them works out to 50 causes)
here they are..
1 bad DC power, 2 bad engine , or 3 vbad ISC controls.
all my answers ASSUME the car is 100% tunedup using the 60k miles column ! or up to 100k on some. cars. did you?
when it stalls can YOUR right foot (fast moving) save the stall.
??????????????????
does the stalled engine easily restart?????????????????????


The engine brain, PCM/ECU does all it can to stop stalls.
it does, if it stalls, its a very serious failure !
Now the full list ,( expanded)
1: lost of 12vdc electrical power to the EFI system. (voltmeter 101)
use a voltmeter to catch it. seen even at the cig lighter port.!!!!
2: lost spark? wont restart? (do the classic spark test)
3: lost fueling ? more tests (no start, try test fuel)
3A; flooding,? spark tips soaking wet. use WIDE open throttle to start engine and cut fuel , cranking, this help , try starting with 10% throttle ti see if ISC is stuck closed.
4: bad engine, the 50 ways and engine can fail. lost compression , on any or all cylinders , will do that. hot or cold or both .???????
one way to solve problems is by elimination.
say some head valves stick, only hot and only randomly. (nasty issues)

you find that (not saying it is, i never guess)
you prove that this way, examples
good 12vdc, power, checked.
good spark, checked. on all cylinders, not just 1.
injectors test pass, no leak down test failures and the injector balance test passes. (the FSM covers these 6 tests for fuel pressure)
conclusion"
so must be engine bad, it stalls, and runs bad , restarted or not at all.
so you find compression on 2 cylinders are low , 25psi, hot.
all else was tested good so i attack the engine'.
on old engines, i do that first.

so do tell what engine does and does not fully,
your post leaves out most facts.
stalls, and can you save the stall.
and does it restart.
and do you have 12VDC power at stall.

Jeep 96 dies sometime going down the road and wont start sometimes. will start after 10 miles at times and 24 hrs sometimes. the dash says check gauges. help woman alone need advice


Fuel pump intermittent, check for fuel pressure before dropping the tank to renew pump.
Otherwise check electrical connection at battery, and make sure you do not have an open circuit.
Loss of connectivity could cause this issue, failed fuel pump sometimes work, but are not reliable.
You should see 30-45 psi at fuel rail, and the regulator should bump pressure 5 psi when reving the motor. Higher pressure indicates failed regulator.

I'm getting a PO 353 and PO121 code and engine stalls out at random times


PO121 is a throttle position sensor problem. I would be checking that if it stalls when you come to a stop sign and stuff like that.

2004 Envoy xl stalls when making turns


this is caused by slow engine idle speed, do the procedure below.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

94 sunbird stalls when stopping


Could be an idle air control problem, or possible vacuum booster trouble, have also seen the baffle broken in the GM tanks and when you brake hard the engine dies. Fill the tank and try it, if it doesn't do it the baffle is bad.

Common issue at the shop (i'm a ford technician), here is what I do to correct it.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
