The first thing I would check is the engine coolant temperture sensor. Check for codes. Check the air and fuel filters. All of these will cause your symptoms. Let me know and we can go from there

1994 Ford Ranger 4.0 cranks runs about 1 to 1 1/2 minute and cuts off.


There are 2 relays in the relay box that could cause this problem the EEC relay and the FUEL pump relay the best test for EEC relay back probe the throttle position sensor for the 5 volts reference signal run engine and watch to see if you lose this voltage. and fuel pump relay install a fuel pressure gauge to fuel rail service port and check to see if pressure drops to zero.

Chevy S10 2.2 trouble starting but then runs fine.


Have you checked base fuel pressure with a gauge yet ?
Sounds like the pump is weak.

Car runs but sometimes dies as your going along wait a few minutes and it starts and runs again


Seen this many times on Grand Cherokees. The crank sensor is going bad. Replace it with a dealer crank sensor, not an aftermarket one.

Car runs fine in park and cuts off in drive


Don't know cars - but it might not be idling fast enough to make the gear change. Idle reset needed maybe?

I have replaced my fuel pump, filter, throttle position sensor, and relay on my 1992 jimmy. it runs but everytime it hits idle speed it cuts off. what could that be


It should have an idle air control valve which lets air into the intake to control the idle speed. The valve could be faulty, or dirty, or the throttle body could be dirty. The computer opens and closes the valve to regulate idle speed.

WhenI push the gas pedal to accelerate the engine cuts out and the cars jumps almost the way a rev limiter cuts out the engine,but the longer the car runs the worse the idling gets until the engine cuts...

2002 Jetta 1.8t cuts offs sporadically


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.
