The most common cause is a faulty relay or electrical component. The problem would have to be active when the mechanic checks the car. You could be stranded if the engine dies and does not restart.

SOURCE: Check Engine Light - O2 Sensor - bank 1 running lean

you should have three oxygen sensors on your car, one for each bank of three cylinders; should be towards the Y pipe on each exhaust manifold. Additionally you should have one on the exhaust pipe before the cadilitic converter.

SOURCE: Chevy tahoe shuts off when driving

i am on here because of an issue i am currently having with a 2004 tahoe, but after reading some the other problems people are having i will let you in on a previous experience i had with a 2002 chevy truck. my previous vehicle was a 02 chevy 2500hd with the 8.1 and the problem started on day when suddenly it shut off. it did restart with no problem. i never had that problem again until a month later and 1500 miles away when i went to texas to visit my sister. this time it took nearly 30 mins before it would restart. it would crank over fine but no fire. then suddenly out of no where it would fire up like nothing ever happened. so anyways to make a long story short i visited two different gm service centers, they did tune ups and diagnostics, and handed me the bills for over 500 dollars and told me that should do it. yea right the problem continued and then i searched online and one item that kept coming up was the crank position sensor. after reading what those people were dealing with i gave it a shot. went to the dealer bought a new sensor ($99) took an hour to install it and i never had the problem again. one last thing im gonna add. i had a friend that drove a late 90s or early 2000s grad prix, she was having the same problem and had her car in and out of the shop and never got it resolved, i told her to have them check the crank position sensor and bingo, she never had the problem again.

SOURCE: engine shuts off while driving

I would suspect a faulty EGR valve, but is the check engine light on? If it is, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service free of charge. That will narrow the search for the problem. Sure hope this helped.

SOURCE: transmission shifts hard into second

it may be a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ). it causes transmission shift issues, bucking,jerking, idle surging, engine cut off, surge while crusing down highway. if this does not solve problem, it may be a sticking valve body in transmission. have a good day !! for an automatic tranny.

94 voyager is stuck in second gear. no check engine light


if you are not mechanical, or don't have the tools, like an engine horst, to work on this, my best advice is bring it to.a good transmission shop with these front wheel drive transmission, the engine needs to be supported to pull the transmission out sounds like a snap ring broke, or valve body needs a rebuild, it could also.be your governor not building up enough pressure, because when you shut if off, and start it again, your pressure builds up.again these front wheel drive transmissions are not fun to work on, so if your not familiar with these transmissions then it's best to.have a transmission shop fix for you

2007 VW 1.6 FSI 1KZ will shut off when at operating temperature. It will always restart and might or might not shut off again. Usually it happens after starting and pressing the accelerator. Other times it...


Have the 'Throttle' or 'Accelerator' re learn performed. Some will re learn as follows : Turn ignition to RUN with engine OFF. Push throttle pedal to the floor and hold it there for 30 seconds.

Turn ignition off and then release throttle. Start engine and allow it to idle until warm ( 80C.) Do not rev the engine or put it in gear dueing warm up. It must be allowed to warm up at idle only. When you hear the radiator fan come on, turn engine off. Wait 10 seconds and restart engine. Test drive.

This procedure MAY have caused the throttle to relearn. If the same problem is present, go to dealer or VW shop and have them 'relearn' the throttle with a scanner.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Engine taking a few seconds to pick up when about


This is the standard advice, probably worth following:
The "D4" indicator comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition ON (II). If it flashes while driving (in any shift position), it indicates a possible problem in the transmission. Avoid rapid acceleration and have the transmission checked by an authorized Honda dealer as soon as possible.
Hope this is helpful

CTS 2004 shuts down when making a stop and car lost thrust on Hwy


Tell the dealership uhugh. if the check engine light comes on, there is an error code which gets stored in the computer. on the nicer vehicles (like yours)it stores vehicle information at the time when the error occured....eg battery voltage, rpm, speed, temperature, rpm etc. you need the find out what the error code is. that would give you an idea on where to start looking

hope this helps
