Engine starts runs few minutes then stops running and wont start baack up til a few minutes go by


This can happen when an electrical part gets warmed up and fails. Possible causes are the fuel pump, the ignition coil, ignition control module (or igniter as Honda calls it), crankshaft position sensor to name the most common. The first causes a fuel problem, the last three are ignition related and cause loss of spark at the spark plugs. What you could do is check for spark on one of the spark plug wires while someone cranks the engine over, immediately after it shuts off and won't restart. If you have no spark, then you know it is ignition related. If you do still have spark, it could be your fuel pump. The best check for that is to check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge.

Fuel Pump problems. Diagnostics shows a pressure loss.


pressure loss is either a bad fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail where the injectors are, or a bad check valve in the fuel pump in the tank. usually the latter.

A quick test is to turn the key to on and measure pressure. Should be 40 psi. Pump will hum for 5 seconds and shut off if engine is not running. (Safety step).

Pressure should drop very little for 5 minutes.
You can cycle the key off for 15 seconds or until you hear the relay click off. Then turn key back on to start pump for 5 seconds again to build pressure. This will help get it started for the day as it builds pressure that bled down over night.

Please rate, thanks.

I have a 1995 Cadillac Sedan Deville with 109k miles. I bought it new, and it's been without any major problems. Now there is a consistant engine shut down problem after driving or at idle for 7 minutes...


I have a similar issue with a 94 DeVille. Runs for a while then shuts down. Fuel pressure is good (I drove around with a pressure gauge attached and it still shut down with no drop in pressure). I've replaced the idle control and ignition module - no improvements.
I too have code P012 showing which to (potentially) the crank position sensor - which I can't seem to locate.
Any luck on your issue?

1995 JEEP CHEROKEE COUNTRY HAS BEEN STALLING AND THEN I AM HAVING TROUBLE GETTING IT TO RESTART. IT ALWAYS DOES RESTART JUST MAY TAK E A FEW MINTUES TO 20 MINUTES OR SO BEFORE IT WILL. NO CHECK ENGINE...


Does it die coming to a stop or die when driving. Will it restart if holding down on gas pedal a little? May be carbon on throttle body. Bad crank sensor will cause this also. Doesnt always set a code. Loss of fuel pressure will cause this with no code.

What makes a car stop while driving but starts


Fuel pressure loss is the usual cause. Check your fuel pressure. This can be caused by a plugged fuel filter or a faulty fuel pump. The next thing to check is your fuel pressure regulator

1992 pontiac boneville, keeps stalling


Have you chg.fuel filter and had a fuel pressure test done? Does it have spark after it stalls? Fuel pumps are a common problem, they work when cold get warmed up they quit, after a while quit all together. Do the fuel pressure test.
