Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle 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.

Shuts off while driving


The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay on startup, then from the oil pressure switch when the engine is running. You could try a jumper to the relay to bypass the pressure switch to confirm the problem. The design is to prevent a fire in a wreck.

What does the fuel shut off button look like on a 97 ford contour


I see it's been some time sense you posted this question. The Fuel Shut Off Switch is inside the panel beside your left foot on the drivers side. If you are having trouble starting the car sometimes but not all the time the Fuel Shut Off Switch is not the problem. If this switch is tripped you will not get fuel because the fuel pump will not get power from the relay. If it were me I'd replace the fuel pump under the back seat.

1991 cavalier 3.1 driving and car stops running. fuel pump & filtre ,cranksfaft sensor all replace. Like it's shut off while driving. Relay clicks on and off when key is turned on. Can the oil...


On some of these models, the oil sensor is wired to the fuel pump as a fail safe to prevent severe engine damage if oil pressure drops. Also it may be a good idea to replace your fuel pump relay. New fuel pumps require the full supplied voltage to perform, and old relays will sometimes overheat and shut off while trying to keep up, and sometimes allow you to start back up and drive after they cool (like 15-30mins later).

My 2001 v6 camero aint geting any gas it cranks up i changed the filter im praying its not the pump is there any thing i can check before i try a new pump


First, check for blown fuses. Find the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay to see if that helps. If it does, replace the bad relay. Most late model cars have a fuel shutoff, or inertia switch that shuts down the fuel pump in an accident. They can be triggered for no reason at all. Check your owners manual to see if it has reset instructions for the fuel shut off. In the meantime I will do some research and see what I Can find and get back to you.

Hi, my 97 chevy truck has intermittent problems. It runs fine most of the time but sometimes it wont start and the fuel pump wont kick in. But then a few minutes later when I try it, it runs. Sometimes...


You need to have a fuel pressure gauge to check it when it wont run. Take your fuel pump relay and switch it for the horn relay. Is the ground good for the fuel pump, the wire bolts on the frame. these had problems with the connector at the fuel tank, make sure they are in good conditon and dont look like they have been hot or melted.

I have a 1988 honda civic it shuts down while Im driving. It will start up again after a few minutes. I replaced the fuel pump but the problem is still on going. please help me


Sounds like your fuel pump relay is going bad. On most honda models this is located under the dash on the driver's side of the car. If the relay is okay, then the next step would be to replace the iginition switch. On my 1988 Honda it would not start up after I shut it off and went into the store and came back out. My brother's Honda would just shut down when turning a corner or changing lanes. After changing his fuel pump and fuel filter, we changed the ignition switch and that solved the problem. If I were you I would change the ignition switch.

1990 e-150 im not getting power to either fuel pumps


You can check the inertia switch (fuel shut-off switch). Not exactly sure where it is but most likely it's behind the right kick panel or under the right side of dash at the carpet line where the passenger's feet would be. Just push down the button on top of switch to reset it. Good luck.
