If the cam shaft sender goes out will it shut the car down even if no sputtering or no warning and it's running,just cut off like you turned the key off


it will just shut off the engine because the ECM will have no idea of the position of the cam in relation to the piston
The ECM needs to know the exact position of the crank and cam shafts to determine the ignition timing so if one or both go out then the engine stops
If course if the timing belt breaks the same result happens as the cam shaft sensor stops sending a signal to the ECM so the ECM shuts the engine down

I have a 2006 eclipse. It shut down while driving, put fuel in it.And it will not start.


try resetting fuel pump kill switch , something have bumped into a accident sensor . did it sputter to a stop or just stop running ? if it sputtered try to prime pump by turning car on for a few seconds a couple of times then try to start . the kill switch is behind one of the side panels in front of the doors . good luck

97 maxima starts and then sputters out. Should the fuel pump continuously pump or shut off if the car not running


The pump stops running if the engine dies. Cuts down on the risk of fire in a wreck. The computer has to see oil pressure or RPM to power the pump.

1991 Ford Tempo GL shuts off and check engine light


check to see if there is exaust coming out of the exaust pipe. It sounds like you might have a stopped up catalitic converter.
