1995 cavalier z24,quad 4,dies at random moments.

I have a 1995 z24 cavalier with the 2.3 quad 4.the car has been dieing on me while i am driveing down the road.i can crank and crank on itbut it will not start until it has sit for at least 20 minutes.it will start right up and run like a charm for a couple of days and it will do it again.i have put a new fuel pump on it,ignition module,cleaned the plugs,checked the ignition wires,everything i can think of.the coils are about 6 years old,so i dont think they are the problem.the car does not miss or carry on while i am driveing it.and no check engine light.a code scanner will not communicate with my car for some reason,so no luck there.when it quits it quits,no warning,like i just turned the key off.anybody have any theorys on this one?

Have someone else see if their scanner will communicate, if not, this is a sure sign that the ECM has gone bad and will cause intermittent stalling. Normally I would recommend changing the crank sensor for this problem and it still may be the cause if you want to try it first, but it sure sounds like a bad ECM.

1995 jeep grand cheerokee laredo 6 cyl. randomly dies then takes anywhere from five minutes to hours to restart


The only component I know of, that shuts a Jeep off while idling or driving 40mph down the road, is a bad crank sensor. Usually when it starts going bad, it will sporadically shut off, like yours does. Eventually, it will just die and the Jeep will not start at all. Have it tested and replaced, if necessary.

Your lockup torque converter is bad I believe. When you shift from Park into any gear it will die.

Car dies randomly for no reason.


My car use to do the same thing. I would be driving down the road and it would die. after 15 min. or so the car would start. I replaced the crank sensor and this solved my problem.
