SOURCE: My car while running down the road will shut down

Sounds like an EGR valve sticking. Start the engine cold and let it warm up. As soon as it starts to hesitate/stumble, pull the vacuum hose off the EGR and if the engine maintains a steady idle, replace the EGR valve. The EGR is sticking intermittently but it won't be long before it sticks all the time and you won't be able to keep the car running when it gets warm. This is an easy diagnosis, removal and replacement for the do it yourself car owners. Please rate me on my answer.

SOURCE: 2000 with a 3.3 grand caravan had bad battery

You need to reset the security system or the car is out of gas. Sounds like it cranking just fine and the car just ran out of gas. The other possible pfoblem if this was a daily driver just before this happened then the Security system may need reset. With the battery disconnected and the drivers door closed but the window openwith the key on connect the battery. turn the key off and lock and unlock the drivers door then get in like normal close the door and start the car,

SOURCE: my car starts every once in awhile. when it starts

Fuel pump. try key on 2 or 3 times and see if it starts right up. this builds up pressure to the injectors. You can also do a fuel pressure check to see. Also check the codes, even if the light is not on.

Is it possible that a computer problem be the issue with are newly rebuilt transmissiont.

When disconnecting the battery, the computer resets to factory defaults. Once assembled correctly, disconnect one battery terminal, shutting down the electrical and wait a few minutes before reconnecting. This should reset the computer to factory default.

2002 mazda tribute, brand new battery. Would not start or crank, vehicle just shut down. After a few minutes, everything work, but still would not start and just shut itself down again. I have to wait...

check the starter motor itself. (go to napa or autozone where they can check it for free) When starters go bad they sort of ground out internally sometimes which kills the battery. Or the other problem, windings are burnt and so drawing so much current that it is more than the battery can supply. That would follow from your description of "everything work, but still would not start and just shut down" aka, turn key to power, all good as new battery, turn the ignition to crank, all dies... in a bit can sort of light up again, but won't crank. You might be able to whack the starter with a wooden stick (check on youtube for suggestions regarding your vehicle) to get it to a test location. Once running (while it is behaving like this) don't shut it off unless you are ok with being stranded wherever that is.

Voltage regulator

Sounds like a bad connection. The alternator only charges the battery, so if it or the voltage regulator in the alternator fails, the battery would slowly run down, not die all at once.

While driving jeep loses elect. to engine. still has fuel pressure. after a few minutes it will strat back up.

Check all fuse box connections, battery terminals and leads. Also check age of battery. If it has too much silt in the bottom of it (corrosion) then it may be shorting within.

Washed engine, on a 94 lexus sc400, now there is no power

Common problem when you wash an engine. Pulll all connectors that you have access to and dry out. Wait a few days and they may dry out on their own. Disconnect the battery for a few minutes to reset the fuel control and other sensors. If nothing works you may have to get it diagnosed to rule out a shorted computer.. We never wash engines for this reason.

Running engine stalled

There are many things that can cause a car to stall while driving it. An engine is made up of many parts, and many of those parts are either governed by a computer or provide input to the computer to help it determine settings for the things it governs. Every vehicle has a fuel system and an ignition system. The computer and its sensors monitor and govern the fuel and ignition systems.

If your car stalled while you were driving it, look for an obvious reason first. Check to make sure you have fuel in the tank (if your gas gauge is working). Do not sit there and crank the car over, trying to get it to start, as you will quickly wear down the battery if it's not already bad.

The ignition system is composed of: ignition switch, neutral safety switch, security bypass, plugs, wires (if applicable) and a coil, or in the case of coil-over systems, many coils. The crank and cam sensors tell the engine where top dead center is. Though these sensors do not usually cause a no start, if they break, the computer will go into "limp home mode," which allows you to get the car to a service station. The car will run badly, and may stall out on you.

Because the running of a vehicle is complicated, there are many more things that can cause a vehicle to stall. These are the most common things that can cause a car to stall. Other things include wiring, fuses, relays, other sensors not working properly or at all, a bad alternator or a bad battery, or an overheating problem, just to name a few.

Electrical Problem

Clean & inspect battery connections, (both ends), charge battery fully & have it load tested. I suspect bad connection, bad battery, and at worst, worn out starter.
