Shuts off when braking


Have you tried adding a couple of bottles of "heet" If you are in cold weather, and your car has been parked for extended periods, the gas tank and lines can retain moisture...also a can of fuel system injector cleaner is a plus...both are inexpensive, and routine maintenance...Has anyone inspected your underhood vacumn lines for cracks or leaks? A vacumn leak can also create this problem...Hope this helps.

Its -12 ,whent to start my car and it turned over and stalled out imediatley, is my gas line frozen?


Yes, I would highly suspect (frozen) water in the fuel. Dumping a couple of bottles of heet (should be able to get at a gas station or auto parts store) in the fuel tank. This MAY work, but likely you will have to get your car towed to a warm shop. Then have them change the fuel filter. Whenever it gets real cold you could put heet in the tank as a preventative. Heet is the brand make of a alchohol gas deicer. By the way, i'm from Alaska. Were enjoying the warmest winter in years right now.

I would suspect the AC compressor cycling switch (located in low pressure line from compressor) or a AC cutoff wide open throttle relay ( in under hood fuse and relay center) would be causing this problem.

Ford thunderbird wont start in Cold weather


change distributor cap first and see how it goes could have a crack in it.Failing which you need to test the ignition module when its cold as sometimes a component will break down and not work when its cold ,this is very much a hands on type job so if dist cap doesnt cure it call a mobile mechanic

Fuel pump not running only in cold weather


Pumping the pedal on an injected engine does nothing, except varying the air intake amount. I would change the fuel filter (if badly plugged, it may be causing the pump to shut off early) and clean the idle air control valve.(which should regulate idle air flow, eliminating the need for playing with the pedal) The valve itself is not difficult to service, but is a bit delicate. It can be cleaned with carb cleaner. just make sure you do not turn the valve end around while cleaning, and re-install it perfectly straight. You may have a bad drain back valve in the pump, but this is less common than what I outlined above.(there are tests for this)

Acts like its running out of gas, raw gas smell


this suggests you have a fuel leak in the engine compartment. Possibly a leaking fuel manifold (injection rail), or the rubber line from the fuel tank is leaking where it attaches to the manifold. The fuel line to the cold start injector should also be checked. Rubber hoses on older cars become brittle and as they contract from very cold weather will leak. Turn the key to on for 1 minute but do not start the car. Then check under the hood for a raw fuel wet spot where the leak is.

68 Chevy Celebrity dies whenever it feels like it


No not the magnet, but the coil of wire that it inductes into when it passes, this tells the ignition module to fire the coil. Yes these fail all the time, they are usually ok until they get hot then then go "open"
