SOURCE: 2000 buick lesabre- was driving and engine stalled

I had a similar situation and after some research, I discovered it was doing what many referred to as "Phantom Stalling" It would only happen once in a while and when I wanted the mechanic to see it, it never happened for him.

Keep an eye every so often on your RPM gauge (beside the speedometer) and see if it cuts out completely and does not move when you speed up (shows 0 even though your still in in drive and moving). Mine would do that and after a few minutes the car would stall and I would have a hard time starting it back up.

What I found out was that my "Crankshaft sensor" had gone bad. I picked up a new one at AutoZone and had the mechanic replace it.

My car has not stalled since Ive had the sensor replaced and I found that when I was ideling, the idle was a lot smoother than befor.

Hope this helps you.

I would've started with the coil packs, modules, boots and plugs myself. They give many problems on the quad 4s?.

Sounds like your Mass Air Flow sensor is in need of service/ cleaning.

Have your head gasket checked you may have a small tear or hole in it allowing coolant/water into your engine internals. This smoke and power loss probably also happens at highway speeds yet is not noticed due to cars momentum

I own a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6 4WD. The fuel and ignition system is basically has all been replaced. A lot of other sensors and the ECM have all been replaced. I sometimes lose all power at times.


Who replaced the sensors and the ECM ? Lose power where ? Engine ? Voltage drop testing the electrical circuits is the correct way to solve intermittent problems like this . There are videos on youtube showing how to do it . Loaded circuit voltage drop testing ECM power and grounds , engine grounds ! You have unwanted resistance , bad or lose connection . Probably a main ground .

Bmw 3 series electrical faults


Hi sounds like the same problem I had crankshaft sensor my battery light came on and the engine would cut out sometimes would start straight away other times took 5mins to start again.
But would get a garage to check fault codes costs about 40pound but could save you 100's as it may be a faulty alternator/battery.

Loss of Power from a Mitsubishi 1.9 DiD engine


Hi, check the air filter. Have helped friends in the past who have poor running vehicles that have been regularly serviced by a garage. I looked at them, found the air filter black with dirt....totally clogged up....never been changed since new!!! Many garages seem dont seem to bother changing it when they should!!! Cars need air to work (more air than fuel) so try this. Paul
