    if it has sign of fuel starving before it dies like surging then better check your fuel pump efficiency even though it starts immediately because pump is still working. what about ignition module, it can be a suspect as well.

What do you think is wrong


intermittents are sometimes hard to diagnose out !! and this seems as one , im curious though what made them wiggle the relays and fuses ?? was there a previous problem there ?? depending on year of manufacture of car , is weather or not the cars own pcu can help diagnose what made car stop , as later models "remember " what there last condition was that shut off engine , of course this requires diagnostic equipment to see this info that typically car owners don't own , but a qualified service tech does and knows how to use it to find your problem

2005 Suz. Swift The engine light blinks when I am driving, then my car will sputter, and stall completely. I usually can shut the car off and turn it back on and it will run. What's wrong? Thanks!


blinking check engine light means -requires immediate attention the computer found a problem with vehicle that can cause damage if continued to run or drive --some codes will shut down vehicle to a limp mode or the problem can cause shut down ----have code read most auto stores offer this for free the code will give you a start point towards repairing your vehicle

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

2003 Ford Taurus will periodically die while driving ! All warning lights will come on and engine will die. It will start again immediately after I put it in 'Park' and I can resume driving


This sounds like a bad connection, the problem is where, i have seen the wiring harness that goes over the transmission rub into wiring and cause engine to shut down and then restart again and run until the right movement is made to shut down again.

Try starting the car and do the wiggle test, start grabing wiring and moving around and see if engine dies out.

99 Intrepid 3.2 engine stalls no check engine lite. Does not happen often but usually within first 15 minutes or so after first start of the day. About 10 times in last 5 months. Sometimes immediate...


Does this trips the check engine lamp to store a code? If possible you should take the Vehicle near a local auto parts store to have the code retrived. How many miles are on your vehilce?

When I drive the lumina about 20 miles and brake to stop engine dies. Will restart in park but as soon as put in drive or reverse it instently dies after it cools about 10-15 minets can restart and drive


a bad crank sensor causes a car to shut down while driving down road. and will not start back up for about 10 minutes. have car scanned to read the problem codes. any auto parts stores will scan for free.

Dies while driving


First off, add a new ground wire from the engine to the body just for the hell of it. Now clean all the battery cable connetors aat all point and add WD40 afterwards. Also check connectors from dash panel to engine circuits. This is real suspect. WD 40 them also
