Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My car started to stall while driving. My oil change was due so I panicked-thought engine was seizing. Added oil- all was good. This has happened twice in 10 days-now it happened again today. Car is a Chrysler Pacifica. Any ideas?

SOURCE: 1999 suzuki swift stalling problem

could be a sticking idle air control valve... a little cylinder on the side of your throttle body.. it helps control your idling air fuel ratio.. this goes bad could cause your problems... also easy for you to replace... normally 2 small bolts and a harness.. usually run about 35-85 dollars.. check price and if it's about 35 or so.. i'd go ahead and change it anyways.. 9 years it's probly due.. :D

SOURCE: car won't start wants to turn over but nothing.

sounds like you have a blown head gasket this would explain loss of coolant and running poorly excessive smoke.

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan Altima Stalls while driving

Our's did the same thing. We tried changing the fuel filter...nothing. Then, my father-in-law did some checking around and different mechanics told him the same thing....the DISTRIBUTOR. Apparently this is a fairly common problem with our '95 Altima's. We changed the very worn spark plugs then went to the NAPA store and ordered the distributor....$242.00 for the whole part. We got it the next morning, my father-in-law changed it and now the car is working like a charm!!!! It is an EASY fix...all you need is a screw driver!! GOOD LUCK!!

SOURCE: Check Engine Light

If the light isn't flashing, it is safe to drive. If it is flashing, then catalytic converter damage can result. Have a parts store check the codes for you and come back and post the code.

My 2002 pt cruiser stalled while driving


I had my oil changed at one of the oil change chain stores and by the time I got home it was leaking all over because they had cross threaded the oil drain plug an it was not sealing. If I hadn't caught it time, the engine would have locked up.
Maybe your engine is locked up - does it turn over now?
I wonder what fluid it is? Is it oil?
My son locked up an engine - the oil light was on (most cars only have an oil pressure low light) and he thought it would tell him if there was a problem (like some other warning).

Why won't my car start?


Sounds like your oil pump may have seized.You'll need a gauge to verify this. The engine has a mechanism by which it automatically cut the engine off if there's a sudden drop in pressure. I would replace the pump. If you do make sure you prime it prior to tightening the oil pan down. A big question is why you were that low on oil. Good luck!

It sound to me that you added the wrong fluid or added it in the wrong place.

When you say seized, that means the engine is locked up. that it cant be turned over either with the starter or barring the engine over with a wrench.

If you engines is in fact seized, the only way to fix it is to rebuild the engine or replace it .

Good luck my friend, Robert

Engine stalls


Some cars have a oil level sensor in the sump for people like you. The sensor tells the cpu to shut down the engine to prevent damage. Something like a low oil shut down on a small generator set

Toyota corolla, engine seized


the first thing I would do I would check my alternator belt if it runs w pump and alt this could be the problem of overheating and dead battery on the engine part what I do is put a socket at the crankshaft bolt and turn it with a 1/.2 braker bar if it turns the engine is not seiced be sure the engine is off to this tests.

Could be a locked up oil pump if you're fortunate. It sounds though like you've broken or seized a bearing or several.

Hi . Unfortunately it's a common problem with mazda6 engine.When they run low on oil the crank shaft tend to get damaged.And some times people tend to top up oil rather than changing oil between 6000 &10000kms .Yep the engine is seized cost less replacing the engine than repairing it.good luck....

Sounds like you are right on the apex seals. Oil coming from the intake is probably from excessive blowby pressure in the engine due to bad seals. The battery could be bad from age, is it the original battery?

When i turn on my heat my 2004 trailblazer stalls


if this happens while the defrost of ac is turned on, it could be a seized ac compressor which will cause the serpentine belt to squeal and drag making the engine sometimes stall. if it happens with the ac off and the selector on say the floor, or dash vents, the issue could be a bad alternator and battery. this is confirmed when the blower motor engages and the lights dim and then the truck goes dead.
