Car just quits running going down the road


My expediton would do this. I would be driving and it would just go dead and I would have to coast to the shoulder. My situation was a fuel pump relay switch located underneath by the spare tire. Problem was it corroded away from road salt and for a while did it intermittently. Ford changed the relay to have a protective shielding on it to prevent this from happening again but it was only a 70 dollar item as I recall.

1997 Saab 900 SE Turbo. Problem repeats. Car is off the road. Had started up just fine, several days in a row, now it turns over just fine but does not start. Can hear the fuel pump pressurize. HAd done...


start with the basics: an engine with no internal problems (like timing belt broke, or valve train not timed) needs fuel and spark to start.Since your getting fuel up to the fuel rail to feed the injectors, lets assume for the moment that the injectors are working to put gas into the cyllinder (You coud check that by pulling a plug or two out and see if they are wet or smell of gas.) Then check for spark (Hold the metal tip of plug wire 1/4 inch from a metal bolt or ground on the engine. Careful you don't get a shock-you can also buy a spark checker for a few bucks. just put the plug wire on it and ground it with the clip. Then you won't get a shock.) If you see that it is getting spark, then you may need an expert diagnosis for why it won't run. If you do not detect any spark (might want to try more than one plug wire) then you need to diagnose your ignition. If your car has a distributor, take off the cap and check inside for a cracked dist. cap or bad or worn rotor. You may also have a bad ignition coil or ignition module (expensive, but not as expensive as a bad engine control computer. Distributorless ignition? Again, may be a bad coil, coil pack, or ignition module. good luck, i'm about out of suggestions.

I was driving my 1990 Mazda Miata down the road at 55mph. suddenly it just quit like it ran out of gas, however it had fuel and it has not started since. where should I start on repairs. I do not have...


Firstly,because this happened all of a sudden i think the first thing to illiminate is the cam belt. To do this simply unscrew the oil filler cap on the engine. While u look down the filler hole get someone else to crank the engine over, you should see that camshaft rotating, if you see no movement there then unfortunately the cam belt has gone.
If the cambelt is ok then there is no fuel or no spark
To check spark. pull off plug lead install a plug back in the lead which has been removed and lay it on engine, crank engine and you should see a spark at the electrode if no spark could be coil pack
To check fuel you will have to undo fuel line at injectors turn key on you should see fuel coming out( PLEASE BE CAREFULL FUEL DOES NOT GO ONTO HOT SURFACES) No fuel could be faulty fuel pump
Hope i have been of some help to you

It keeps shuting down i have replaced fuel pump, plugs,coil, when driving it will just shut down if let it set for a few min it will start back up now it will not start...


You need to figure out which one you are losing. You are either losing fuel, or spark. When the engine quits, immediately open the hood, and check for spark. Let us know what you find. Good luck!

Van died while driving, was able to get started back up 1x


first thing is to check for fuel, if you spary starting fluid in throtlebody will it start?. if it does then its mostlikly a fuel pump, if not then the next thing is to check for spark, remove a plug wire and spin engine does it spark, yes then it a fuel problem, if no then may be a crank sensor or a coil or module, but most of these have bad fuelpumps so start with the fuel test. hope this helps.

Honda had a recall on the distributor itself they dont cover them any more. they are bad about going out i think its just the pick up that goes bad but you have to replace has a unit
