Hello there

You MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow) is dirty and most likely on its way out. The next time this happens just unhook the connector and you should be able to drive the car in safe mode.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Thanks

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.


Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!

Shuts off while driving but starts up


Sounds like it's not getting fuel. Check fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If low, make sure the pump is running. If the pump is running, but no pressure at the rail, check fuel, filter. Get back to us with result of these checks.

I have a 95 Olds aurora. starts fine after driving for a bit it sputters and then stalls I let it sit for 30 and it starts up again but then stall after a few min of driving


My 1996 olds Aurora did the things yours is doing I replaced the fuel pump sensor myself for 7.00 or 8,00 dollars that solved the problem. That may help.It seemed to be acting like it was out of gas I hope this helps
