    I have replaced the fuel filter, had the fuel pressure checked, changed the relay
    It used to do this and then it stopped. now it seems to be back again. I wish I could figure it out.

It really sounds like the coil. When the car stops pull one spark plug wire and check to see if it is firing. If it isnt then you found the problem. When the coil gets hot inside the windings expand and create resistance and cause a no fire situation.

Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?

SOURCE: car stalls

the problem sounds like it is not getting enough of fuel. check or replace fuel filter to see if this helps, also make sure fuel pump is pumping the fuel at the right pressure. have pressure checked if need be. if not enough fuel a vehicle will run at idle, but stall under pressure.

Sounds like you are having a fuel problem with the fuel filter. If you have not had your car serviced in quite awhile i would do so. At least change the fuel filter and check the air filter as well. Hope thias will help you.

It is possible that it is coincidence. Check if after revving it would stall after when your truck is in neutral or in park. This is to isolate the problem if it is the engine when in load or the transmission.

Is this a manual transmission? If there are shifting issues it may be the clutch. Other than that have the fuel pressure tested. The fuel regulator may be faulty or there are leaks or bad lines on the vacuum hoses.

1993 Dodge Spirit. Will start run till warmed up then quits. Unable to start again until it cools down. Then does the same thing What is the problem> Have replaced the fuel pump,injector,computer box,...


Hello thomas, next time it dies & fails to start, check to see if it's getting spark to the plugs. If no spark, the ignition module, sometimes called the pickup, could be breaking down when hot....Also a faulty ignition coil will cause the same conditions...Check the EGR, & the EGR pipe, make sure it not's clogged with carbon.... Cat converter and exhaust for excessive back pressure.

I hope this helps.

My 1992 dodge spirit won't run


Make sure your coolant levels are up. If not, it may be the problem. The coolant sensor is reading inappropriate figures & sending incorrect timing figures to the computer. Change the coolant sensor & make sure your air filter is clean. The coolant sensor is close to the thermostat housing. Good luck!

Check engine codes for 1991 Dodge Spirit LE , light comes on but does not blink then goes out.


Turn key to on, then off, then on, then off, then on & leave it on, (not start, just to on) then count the number of flashes of check engine light. It will flash,then have a small pause, then flash again. It will be a 2 digit number, for example: 2 flashes, pause, 2 more flashes, will be code 22. 3 flashes, pause, then 5 more flashes would be code 35. When you get 5 flashes,pause, then 5 more, That is code 55 which just means end of message. Get back to us with codes & we'll advise of what to look for.
