98 Elantra that just stops running

Replaced the fuel pump, and spark plugs. The car will start, run for about 5-10 min then just stops running. It won't start back up for about 30min to and hour. Any suggestions?

    Hopefully that will help. I'll have to try that tomorrow, since it's dark outside, and I'm working on this thing in a car port. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

I got a 200 dodge caravan 3.3 it will run for 10 to 20 mi then stop and wot run


You need to test for spark at a plug wire , coil , distributor etc... That sounds very much like an ignition module or crank sensor going bad. If when it dies after 10 to 20 min. an won't start pull a plug wire an have someone try to start the vehicle while you hold plug wire end near ground ,to look for spark . If there is spark , check fuel pressure . Fuel pump could be going out , fuel pump relay etc...

WHAT WOULD CAUSE MY 98 TOYOTA COROLLA TO STOP WHILE I WAS DRIVING IT?


there is a problem with the injector circuit or pressure to the fuel manifold
because the pump is running doesn't mean that there is fuel pressure for the injectors
run the fault codes and have a pressure test done to check the fuel pressure regulator operation

My '99 chevy truck with 5,7L 350 will start but wont stay running. put new fuel pump and relay switch in


First you must determine if the fuel is stopping or the spark is stopping..If the fuel is stopping this could be a computer problem.. If the spark is stopping then it could be the IGN Module in the distributer. or any nomber of sensors. Squirt a little fuel directly into the Throttle body on the intake manifold.. If the truck runs longer its probably loss of fuel.. Do this several times to make sure, be careful and only use a small amounty of fuel.. you do not want a fire.. RE: Spark: Take a plug wire and an old plug..put the wire on the plug.. hold the plug against a good ground .. have someone crank the engine .. does the plug stop firing? The engine dies.. and will not restart for a minuet or so.. during this "no start" time do the plug test. If the plug will not fire during this time take the module out and take it to Orillys Auto parts.. They can test it.. really expensive part. Don't replace until you know it is BAD..

1987 Dodge Dakota Sport 3.9L V-6 Runs beautiful for about 10 min then starts cutting out , i have to pull over but it doesnt die. When i pull over and stop the problem seems to go away, get back on th


Well the diesel effect is from the idle speed being too high or a buildup of carbon inside the engine acting as replacement spark plugs.
Can you use starting fluid to find out if the cutting out is from lack of fuel ?
